Scrapping Harry Potter.......

Went to a crop yesterday and managed to scrap some of the many photos me and Emily took at the Harry Potter Studio Tour a couple of weeks ago. I was pleased with my results and I've used up some Bo Bunny papers that I bought early last year, thought they were quite suitable.
Did you watch the opening ceremony for the Olympics on Friday night? I did and thought it brilliant, Danny Boyle and Co did Great Britain proud, it showed Britain at it's best. Now all we need are some medals.
After yesterday I feel a little disheartened. Why do some people like to use others as scapgoats for their own misdeamenours, blaming them for their decisions and making it sound like they themselves are oh so innocent..if only others knew the whole truth and the history that goes with it.................they might think differently. Afraid at this moment in time I can not enlighten you more, but some who read my blog will know what I am on about.
Have my great niece Elizabeth's 6th birthday tea to go to later. I'm looking forward to a buffet day aswell as seeing my young niece open her pressies.
Bramford Crop this coming Saturday 9am - 8pm....all welcome. We have a bunch of lovely ladies that attend and always have a good number each month too., anything from 20-35 turn up to scrap and card make. I've my challenge to complete too, 6 of us set a challenge each month, altered art. Tracey gave us all a mouse trap to alter...............yes we all looked at it rather strange and thought she'd well and truely lost the plot(it's normally Carol who gives us something to do that taxes our brains LOL). Nancy googled it and hey presto, altered mouse traps and very nice they look too. You try googling altered mouse traps you'd be surprised.
Well hope you all have a good week, I've lots to get done on the crafting front.

Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour

On Wednesday we took a trip to the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tour at the Leavesden, just off junction20 on the M25. Well what can I say just that for any Harry Potter fans out there it's a must visit. It's actually where all the films were made. The sets they actually used, which were amazing, the clothes the actors wore. We had a great time, some photos to follow. We took Emily's friend Hannah with us. On Friday night to get into HP mode the girls had a HP filmathon! They watched all 8 films one after the other!!! Mad I say. On the tour you get the chance to go into the 'green screens' to ride a broomstick and fly in the Ford Anglia, the girls did this the offical photos are really good, this is the only place you can't take photos yourself but can everywhere else throughout the tour.This is just a selection on the photos I took, at least I've lots to scrap!
Talking of scrapping I'm off to the Papermaze crop tomorrow, which I'm looking forward to. Got to sort out my stash and what I'm going to take as I'm working a wake shift tonight so won't have time when I get home in the morning. I need to buy an album from the shop tomorrow as I think I'll fill one just with our HP tour photos.
Well must go washing to put out.....the sun has started to shine! and stash to sort.
Have a great weekend.

July already, where has this year gone!

Can't believe it's July already........downward slippery slope to Christmas now.LOL Soon be time to start on making Christmas cards.
Went to the Create and Crop last Saturday and managed to do 4 layouts, two still need their titles though. One of the completed ones I'll post on here, it's of Emily and her friends at their Prom last year, the other is a DT piece for Scrapbook Sisters so that'll have to go on hold. The Bliss layout is the one I did for the Bramford crop kit based on an idea by Lou Collins, it's of my god-daughter and her new husband. The other two layouts are ones I did for the recent DT ideas scrapbook challenge at Scrapbook Sisters.............see my sidebar.
Two weeks today and we're off to the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour, can't wait as I've heard it's fab................great photo opportunity too, which I can't wait to scrap.

The monthly Bramford Crop is next Saturday 14th July 9am-5pm. Had to move a week as the church has got their Fete and Fun Day from 2pm if you're interested in coming along. I've been busy cardmaking as I'll have a table.
Well I need a coffee so must dash, enjoy the rest of your week.
