S.P.S #2 & Movie Challenge

HS:MS
Self portrait Saturday #2.

Cheated very slightly as this picture was taken yesterday. I needed to send a shot in with a submission and after many, many attempts (including letting SMO try out as photographer - disaster) I sent off this one. This morning I am decidedly unhappy with my choice!!

Over at the Fisk-a-teers there is an online crop this weekend. One of the challenges is to produce a movie inspired layout. I've been saving up this photo and looking out for wizarding bit for quite a while now, so it seemed like a good time to scrap it.I used my Woodware wizard stamp, Daisy D Christmas paper, Heidi Grace border and K&Co chipboard letters so it was a real mix! The journaling is behind the chocolate frog card and explains where the hat came from and how Small-N-Grubby couldn't say "Expelliarmus!" and could only manage "Smelly Armpits!".

It was a good day for parcels yesterday, 2 in 1 day!! My Anna Griffin Christmas kit came, which is as lovely as it looked on the telly. But this was overshadowed by the arrival of these stamps .......

A very special thank you to David and particularly Brenda at Craft Obsessions (where I get most of my supplies now) for listening to my pleading and letting me have the set they were going to keep!!

Looks like some Christmas makes will be happening very soon.

Oh Kate, no way should you be unhappy, I think it's fab. I would give my right arm for such gorgeous hair. Mind you what would I brush it with without my right arm? No seriously, it's lovely xXx
