Well hello lovelies, I am so happy that you have joined me today!! I have been waiting for this day for a while now. I am totally in love with this movie and book, but my project is based off of the movie. As much as I love the Midnight Margarita scene I have to say that the book of spells and the Mantle decorations are what I am fascinated with the most. I do love tequila though!! Anyway, I decided to make my own book of spells. I had this old atlas that I got from the thrift store eons ago thinking I was going to conform and make a coffee table book, well then I decided that conforming is just not who I am, I just like the reactions I see on peoples faces when they realize, not only will I tell you what I feel and what I think, I will be brutally honest with you too! Anyway, back to the hop. I just had to pull the movie out and watch it again, and again, and again, and again....ummm you get my meaning!!! My children watched with me too. My son has declared that he want to live with the Aunts!! He says he doesn't care about the magic, that's just a plus, he wants chocolate for breakfast everyday!!! I had planned on making brownies for this hop too but alas by the time they were made and I had found the camera and charged the battery, there was nothing but crumbs left...note to self, never leave brownies unattended when you have a house full of tweens and teens! So we decided that along with the book we would decorate the mantle as we love theirs with all the candles and apothacary jars the have everywhere.
So anyway, I took this huge Atlas and ripped out some pages and glued some together, cut some up…you name it I did it! I don’t even know if there is a map left in there… Oh well, I love the way it turned out!
