This bit of silliness came about because I got stuck on two ideas...a Harry Potter layout and a travel themed steam punk lo. I bought the new Harry Potter line because we're all big fans here (even dh) and I had this photo of DD2 at SFO 5:00 am waiting for a flight for the first leg of our 24 hour journey to S. Africa in 2007, reading an HP book...I thought the HP line would be great for this and then it kind of morphed into this steam punk/Harry Potter theme.
She didn't want to go on the trip and had her nose stuck in that Harry Potter book while waiting, speaking very little except to complain...but 2 days into the trip she didn't want to come home...she loved it there.
I scuffed up the luggage which is a sticker from my stash..one of the first scrapbooking things I ever bought. The little gal on the goose is from another new Creative Imaginations line. Gears by Tim Holtz and 7 Gypsies and there's some Steampunk Debutante in there too. Bg pp is old College Press which I water distressed a bit.
