This week at "Use Your Stuff" we are challenging you to use "magic" to inspire your creations.
Actually this is the 2nd week we are issuing this challenge as we are currently teaming up w/ the "Double Trouble" blog who has issued their own challenge.
See their post here: Double Trouble Blog
One of their challenges was to use a tic-tac-toe board to incorporate other items/techniques into your project.
Here is the board:
THING 1: Trouble Maker - says "Let's play TicTacToe - first pick a row, column or diagonal and let us know in your post which you have chosen." If you want to add additional elements the choice is yours.
Using both challenges as inspiration this is what I came up w/:
"The Stuff of Magic"
The "magic" theme is obvious.
From the Double Trouble Challenge, my tic-tac-toe items are:
Gold/Silver - Sentiment - Punch/Die Cut
"The first time the entire family entered the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. 3.21.16"
My family and I, especially the kids and me, love Harry Potter!
In fact the only reason we purchased Season Passes to Universal Studios Hollywood was because we found out they were opening up "Harry Potter Land" (as I call it...it's easier to say).
This was back in 2016 and once the passes expired we didn't renew because we had already seen and enjoyed what we went for.
I wanted to share that I chose the specific words "the entire family", instead of "we", when journaling because the month prior, Joseph and I were privy to an early entrance opportunity that David and Madison missed.
(I still need to tell that story.)
But this was the first time ALL of us were able to go in.
I had a lot of fun using my Harry Potter Themed scrappy supplies, from companies: Reminisce, Scrapbook Customs, Moxxie, and Paper House Productions... some items I have had since 2016!
Fun Fact: The Harry Potter theme strips are actually 1 border sticker I ripped into 3 pieces for visual interest.
I also sprinkled in a few non-HP items from Pinkfresh Studios and Kelly Purkey (the stamp).
I love this layout and that I finally had the inspiration to scrap these photos!
