I Want to go to School Hogwarts! My daughter laughs at me when I say that, but I love those books and the movies and I want to be a student at Hogwarts! I can't completely decide which house I'd be in......probably Hufflepuff although some days I feel a bit Slytherin (they can't all be evil, right?) Anyway, I am definitely going to see the new movie for my birthday on Saturday! And I just had to make an Ian Harry Potter! It actually took much less altering than I originally intended - once I remembered how close the digital graduation Ian was to Harry. I just flipped him in Photoshop elements, and used the eraser to get rid of his diploma and hat and to erase a little of his gown under his collar so I could draw in a tie. I drew on the glasses and his scar and gave him a wand and Voila! Then my DH said,"Don't you have an owl stamp, too?" Gotta love him!

The Details:
Stamps: Digi Graduation Ian and Owl from Forest Friends - The Greeting Farm, Sentiment - Doodlefactory
DP: Sunny Glenn and Dirty Rodeo - The Greeting Farm
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20

Thank you for visiting!
Have a Magical day!
:-) Traci

I love this Traci! I too am a big H.P. fan. I have some of their secret boxes that Hallmark sold years ago. They are from the 2nd movie I think. And of course I have all the books in hardback and the movies that are on DVD. I am planning on taking my oldest to the new movie too, but not sure what to do with the 2 little ones. HOpefully DH won't have to work and I can leave them home. Anyway, FABULOUS card. I am going to have to look into photoshop if this is the cool stuff you can do!

Wonderful idea altering Grad Ian, he looks absolutely perfect. You are a genius my friend! And DH made an awesome contribution!! :D
