Day 14....Potions Class again!

Never fear, it's the last potions class of the year!  Or so I keep telling myself, you never know though what else I'll be brewing!!  Hopefully today, I won't start channeling Snape while writing my post again though.  Although that was kinda fun!  Anyway, I digress, lets get on to potion making!  Now one of these potions took a month, yes a month, to brew!  I know I know the things I do for Halloween!!!  LOL  Anyway today I present to you:
POLYJUICE POTION, GILLY WEED, AND  AMORTENTIA!

Now for those of you who are not HP buffs here's a little background info.  Polyjuice Potion was brewed in book 2 The Chamber of Secrets.  On the bottle it says Who do you want to be.  That is what Polyjuice does to you, you add a hair of the person you want to be, chug-a-lug and pow, you are a new person, although only for a little while. 

Gilly Weed came about in book 3 The Goblet of Fire, when Harry had to jump into the black lake to save that which mattered the most to him.  Nevil gave him Gilly weed which in turn gave him gills to breath underwater.( I couldn't get a good picture of this!)

  Amortentia came about during book 6 The Half Blood Prince, when Professor Slughorne was potions teacher.  On the bottle it says: What does the love of your life smell like?.  It smells different to everyone, it gives you smells that remind you of the person you are in love with.
OK now that I have proven what a complete and utter Harry Potter nerd I am, I will leave you so you may go and see what the others have made!  Remember rules and regs on the tab at the top of the page!!!  .

Here's the card I was talking bout yesterday!  Vampire Rye from WFK!!!
