You're A Wizard Harry!!

This is my second post for today, please scroll down to see my creation for Natalie & Amy's monthly challenge! Hugs xx

'Harry Potter' or 'Happy Pothead' as he is called in our house, has got to be the books/films of our girls childhood. Yeah I will admit I have read them all & watched the films but I always find the books better. Well most of the time anyhoos lol! The CGI in these films is amazing & hopefully soon we are taking the girls down to London to the 'Harry Potter experience!

Anyhoos back to this weeks challenge over at My Time To Craft where the theme is

RECYCLE A BOOK, NEWSPAPER OR MAGAZINE!

& as our copy of 'Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone' was falling to pieces I decided to use that! Must remember to pick up a new copy before our Danni realises its gone lol!
