Movie Magic Monthly Reminder: LOTR vs Harry Potter and Graphicat: For Maci

Hello everyone!  We have a reminder post up for you today to hopefully encourage you to play along at our new challenge blog, Movie Magic Monthly.  This month, we put Lord of the Rings up against Harry Potter and we'd like to see which movie can get more entries!  My first creation was an altered journal cover based on Harry Potter - you can see it here.  Today's card uses a stunning image from Rick St. Dennis - this is Gandalf Wizard from Lord of the Rings:

Isn't he fabulous?  I printed him directly onto some DP, as I wanted to leave him uncolored but also wanted him to have some character.  While searching for appropriate LOTR quotes, I found this one.  After the bombings in Boston, it just really struck me and I thought it was perfect. In case you can't see it, it says "The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places.  But still there is much that is fair.  And though in all the lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps, the greater."  I printed it out in my word processing program on the same DP, sponged the edges and attached it at an angle with pop dots.  I added a ribbon tag and some black pearl stickers.  

My next card is a special one for a special little girl.  Her name is Maci and you can read about her here:

I am also entering this into the:

Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes

I used one of my favorite mermaid images from Dilly Beans, paired with some fun paper from MME, a paper flower with a button center, and some plastic word charms attached with glue dots.  Peace.
