I was lucky to attend a book reading/signing with JK Rowling at Carnegie Hall in New York - - I created this scrap page about the experience

The journaling is hidden under the owl - it is pretty long, but you can read all about the signing on my blog
http://reelgirlsanimalhouse.blogspot.com/2010/09/harry-potter-and-deathly-hallows.html

Some special notes about this layout:
I found a Harry Potter font online, printed it on cardstock and cut the letters out by hand. I cut the image of Hedwig the owl from a children’s poster, adhered it to chipboard and then used Helmar Crackle Medium on it. I fashioned the Gryffindor House banner out of felt, fabric and embroidery floss, I found the image online but really wanted it on fabric. So, using Helmar V2 spray I attached a piece of fabric to cardstock and ran it through my printer. The book page is from a 1915 textbook called “Chief Contemporary Dramatists” that I found at a thrift store. The feather, pressed flower, owl and banner all represent different things from the Harry Potter books. On the edges of my cardstock, I used Tattered Angel masks and ink.

I'd give almost anything to meet JK.
What a way to save this memory.
I never heard of a crackle medium but I sure want it now!

One of my favorite LO's ever. I am so jealous, in a great way, that you met my hero. You have some amazing cutting skills. I have that font and I can't even get it to cut that pretty on my die cut machines.

This looks amazing! It all just fits together perfectly. I also must say I am extremely jealous! J.K. Rowling has been my hero since I first started reading HP 13 years ago!! I bet it was amazing to see her in person.

HP fan, and JK Rowling is great inspiration, this is a wonderful way to remember the experience, not likely I'll ever get to meet her living in Tassie.

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.

Um...you are super lucky, but I'm sure you know that!  Your page has lots of great attention to detail--I think that makes it even more special.
