Firstly, thanks for your comments on my previous two posts. Seemingly lots of you share my fondness of punctuation marks [especially the !!! and the ***] and I knew I wasn't alone in the holiday photo-taking habits too. I appreciate you taking time out to share your
Another holiday-photo-tradition James and I seem to have developed is what I catchily call the 'Us in a hotel mirror' shot. We do it wherever we go however, on our recent trip to Lincoln there was something extra special about the mirror in our room.
It was from Hogwarts:
If you've no idea what I'm talking about then I'll hazard a guess that you're not a big Harry Potter fan ... so here goes ... The Mirror of Erised looks like this:
I really wanted to get a shot of us reflected in our own Mirror of Erised [which is 'desire' spelled backwards]:
Which caused me to wonder ...if we're meant to see our true desires reflected in there ... we must really, really want to be blurry ....
The photo at the bottom of the layout is the best one of the lot. And there were quite a few! But, if my desire is not actually to be blurry ... I think 'being together on a long weekend, in a lovely old hotel, in a beautiful city' might not be such a bad thing to see reflected there.
So ... now it's your turn ...
What would we see reflected while you peered into your true desires in that mirror? [The mirror at Hogwarts I mean... not the one in a perfectly-lovely-but-probably-not-magical hotel room in Lincoln ... ].
Or shouldn't I ask?

In the 'Surprise Supplies' section of the current issue  of Creativity Magazine I share some ideas on using Christmas supplies on non-festive layouts and I thought I'd try that again on this page. The polka-dot paper; the border, bow and star stickers and a die cut frame all come from Papermania Christmas crafting ranges.
