Harry Potter, Terminator: Salvation, and A Lucky Layout

We went to the drive in last night to see these two movies:


Harry Potter was AWESOME, but that sort of goes without saying if you are a fan. So good! I love it even more now that they are older! This cast is amazing! I'm so ready for the next one, but so sad that it will all be over soon.

Terminator, on the other hand, was what one might call ridiculous. Now, let me start by mentioning that I'm not really a Terminator fan to begin with. This movie was not on my list to see, but The Hubbums sort of wanted to see it and it was part of the double feature, so we stayed and watched it. It's a dumb movie. Part of what is annoying is that they basically stole the whole 'skin job' concept from Battlestar Gallactica. Yes, I realize that the concept was probably not original to BSG, either, but I am a BSG fan and not a Terminator fan, so as far as I'm concerned BSG just wins. HA! LOL! Although, at the end of the the movie a skin job that looks a whole lot like a certain 'Governator' does appear and that sort of gave me a double take! No, it's not really him, but it's a darned good look-alike!

Both Movies - Daniel Ratcliff and Christian Bale. All in one night. Enough said.

And I have a layout to share with you today, as well! I know...it's hard to contain your excitement with all of this movies and layouts in one post....it's Friday, I thought I'd go a bit CRAZY! HA!!!





This was SUCH a fun layout for me! I really love how it turned out! I used a Jason Mraz song lyric for the journaling. One thing I like about using song lyrics is that I have a bit more liberty, in my mind anyway, to cover some parts of it since it is familiar. I love the way the journaling serves as the backdroup for the entire layout. The tree is handcut and pieced. The background paper and the strips beneath the photos are all Sassafrass papers. LOVE THEM! I used a fun Japanese popcorn pen to create the title. You write or color with the pen and then heat it for that fun puffy look! I added bits of fabric and some fun buttons to accent the page.

I hope you are all having a great week and I hope you have some fun plans for the weekend! Are you heading off to see any movies? I still want to see Up! so bad, but at this point, I think I may be waiting for Redbox.

    We don't have a drive in either but I'd fall asleep anyway.
    I don't think I like Harry Potter anymore, I had a crush on Snape and it all went wrong. I don't think the feeling was mutual.
