Hit the Beach

Has anyone seen Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince? We went yesterday morning and loved ever minute of it. It's definitely my favorite movie of the series - so far!! It followed the book pretty well, although reading the actual book is always going to be better. The directing was perfect and there were so many little things thrown into the background that just made it extra special. We laughed out loud numerous times. The acting skills of the kids have greatly improved in this one and all of the characters were just spot on - especially Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix. We had a wonderful crowd in the packed theater who all giggled, sighed at the love stories, shed a few tears, gasped and even jumped at one point. It ended with everyone clapping and wishing they could rewind the film and watch it again. If you get a chance, definitely don't miss it in the theater! Okay on to the card. This is one of the submissions that I sent in for the catty design call. It didn't make it in, but it was featured on Mischelle's blog. I just thought I would post it again here so I could show y'all a little more detail. This stamp is super fun and cute. It's all one image, including the sentiment. However, I've seen several samples where they have inked up 1 bird or a couple and stamped them out. I decided to keep them all together because they just looked like a great assortment of friends heading out for a day of fun on the beach. I ended up using the Lilly Anna paper to paper piece their clothing and accessories on. The striped paper in that collection was perfect for little bathing suits! Thanks for stopping by.

Love your card - it's so cute!!

I haven't seen Harry Potter yet and am dying too!! I have a problem though...I'm new to the area and no one in my family has read the books or seen all the movies (TERRIBLE, RIGHT?!?!) so if someone does go with me they just won't get it - you know? I'm definitely going to see it in a theater though!!

So cute! I can't believe you cut out the bikini top! Those are some itty bitty little things to cut out!

Adorable card, Kim! LOVE all of the paper piecing & your great coloring!

I can't WAIT to see the new HP flick! Poot & I are huge fans, and I don't know how many times I have watched the other movies over and over again!

I knew you'd be at that movie, glad you enjoyed it. It's nice when they meet expectations...I'm thinking they could have added HOURS AND HOURS to LotRs though! ;) This image is fun, love their paper pieced clothes, they are stylin!
