Scrapbook For My Sister

My youngest sister Cosplays as Dolores Umbridge from the Harry Potter books. She goes to conferences and is in a Harry Potter Fan Club. She will be the first to admit she's weird, but to each his own right?! She has met some great friends and made lots of memories so I wanted to make her a scrapbook of all her Umbridge costumes. She is getting ready to go to Terminus, a Harry Potter conference so I tried getting it all completed so she can take it with her. I have to mail it by tomorrow since we are going on vacation and she leaves August 5th. It takes forever to mail stuff across the country! :) I love her costumes and one day hope to go to one of these things with her just to soak it all in! She is a fantastic sister and I hope she likes it!!

So here are all the pages I have done. WARNING! Very Picture Heavy! I still have about 12 pictures but I'm at a loss what to do with them. If something sparks at any point I'll just mail them to her seperately to add as I make them. This book was probably one of the hardest I've ever done for the simple fact that it was a theme album unlike any themes I do for my kids! It was something that I couldn't just slap together because it had to be grown-up yet kiddish and couldn't be all lightening bolts. I'm really happy with how it turned out!
Oh, also, not everything photographed well, so the colors might look a little off. Trust IRL that everything matches, lol. Everything is in order how they are in the book. I left a few places for her to add journaling.

The book I got for her. It's an 8x8 album, my first ever, and I stamped the name on front.

For this first page I wanted something that really brought all of Umbridge together, along with the photoshop Shae did on this picture. She really does love this character! I wanted to incorporate the love of cats Umbridge has and had been thinking of fur and a cat collar with charms...lucky me found them!


CS: Pretty in Pink, Black

DSP: Rock Star 'Silver Foil'

Other: Start cut-outs and #1 Teacher from Makin' the Grade Cricut cartridge, charm bracelet, fur and charms from Wal-Mart craft section.

Shae has different costumes for each day of her conferences. This is her version of the Book Dolores -cardigan and skirt.

DSP: Colorbok Embellishment Pack (and plain pink)

Other: Jolee's pack 'Air Mail' (or something like that...)

This is everyone's favorite costume! When Umbridge was attacked by the centaurs! She uses brown paint to make the dirt on her face and even made hoof prints on parts of the dress like she was trampled. The two flanking her are Fred (note the halo!) and George (note the missing ear!).


CS: Garden Green, Chocolate Chip

Other: Makin' the Grade Cricut Cartridge, Flowers and leaves from craft section at Wal-Mart

Signing an Educational Decree at a conference. Lol, I googled 'Educational Decree' and this pic came up on someone's flickr, and it wasn't my sisters! She is actually very popular in her Wizarding Community! :) The background I am especially proud of! I scanned in the decrees from the book and then placed them in a Word document, set it to 8x8 and printed it off.


CS: White (with a little help!), Black

Other: Prima flowers from local SS, Centers from same pack of flowers at Wal-Mart, bright pink grograin, hardware (ribbon slider, frame and brads) from Stampin Up Hodgepodge Hardware Pewter

Umbridge poses with the other EVIL/Villanious characters at a conference. Slytherins, Snape, and Pettigrew were just some of the lot. Same paper as above, my first one that I didn't like as well, but it worked here since it got mostly covered. Instead of Devil Wears Prada...Evil Wears PINK!


CS: White, Black, Pink Passion

Other: Tag Punches (small and large), Feather, Jasmine and George Cricut Cartridges, Black/White Striped Ribbon, Paper Studio Gemstones, SU Hodgepodge Hardware Brass (clips)

I couldn't resist! Perfect photo opportunity and my chance to do a funny page. Paper printed with I must not tell lies in a scratchy font in bright pink.


CS: White (with help!), Black

Other: Jasmine Cricut Cartridge, Feather, Flower (same as above)

If you've read the book you know Umbridge loathes Trelawny. I had a mini clip board and made that into Umbridge's very own, with a quill held in place, too. For the bottom paper about the pink I folded it accordian like and secured the ends with rhinestone brads. Her To Do list reads:

1. Detentions for Potter 2. Form Inquisitorial Squad 3. Letter to Cornelius 4. Sack Trelawny 5. Become Headmaster!


CS: Black, Pink Passion

DSP: Rock Star 'Silver Foil'

Ink: Black and Pink Passion for the edges of her list

Other: Bright Pink Grograin, Feather, Provo Craft Mini Clip Board, Rhinestone Brads

This was her very first costume! It was based on one of Umbridge's outfits in the movie. With her catch phrase, too!


CS: Rose Red, Chocolate Chip

DSP: SU Rebecca

Ink: Rose REd

Stamp: Just Journaling II with Circle template - Stampin Up

Other: Pink Ribbon, George Cricut Cartridge, Corner Rounder

Same as above, circles from George Cartridge as well.

For one of the conferences they had a Masquerade Ball. Umbridge is always referred to as looking like a toad so Shae used that idea for her costume. Of course the dress had to be bright pink to be Umbridge, but every accessory from the lily pad bracelet to the fly clip in her wig she nailed it all. Her friends all tease, "Oh my God, you look like a frog!" lol.

Same materials for all 3 pages following.


CS: Green Galore, White

DSP: Paper Patch

Other: Provo Craft Sticker Letters Kids' Green, George Cricut Cartridge for flowers, Scallop Punch, White Buttons, Silver Cord, Green and Bright Pink Gingham, Pink Staples, Frog Charm

And the last page! Until I add more and then I'll tell her where to place them! This was an evening at the conference and Shae took her PJ's to the Umbridge level, too! Her tee shirt says Hem Hem, and she has a pink pillow case with a kitty on it. So...I used that kitty again in my inspiration and made this cat page. Oh, and this page is actually really, really bright pink, one that didn't photo well for sure!


CS: Pixie Pink

DSP: Shabby Princess

Ink: Black (to make whisker like on the page)

Other: Doodle Charms Cricut Cartridge for the Cat, Decorative Squares #3 Cuttlebug Folder for bases, misc. ribbon from the dollar store

Has God removed the Curse of Babylon ?
While reading the Bible, I came upon a story which Strengthened my faith in Islam even more.
According to the Bible, Genesis 11:1 humans all spoke one language at one time. These humans
were trying to build a tower to see God. God Warned them to cease building the
tower, yet they disobeyed God and continued to build the Tower.

As a punishment for their disobedience, God cursed them by making them all speak
a different language. This tower is now called the "Tower of Babylon." Genesis
11:19 and that is where we get the word "Babel"

The Holy Qur'an is their forgiveness, if the humans return to obeying God, then
they are again united in a brotherhood and sisterhood of one Semitic language,

This is astonishing since only 27% of the Muslims are Arabs and there are almost
1.5 Billion Muslims world wide, all united with one language,
praying in unison, re-united, this is also predicted in the Bible;

"For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent." Zephaniah 3:9

In the Strong's Bible Dictionary, the word "language (saphah)" in this verse can also mean [ side, edge, border]

Therefore, Zephaniah 3:9 can also be translated to read "I will TURN people to ONE direction" which we witness with Muslims all facing -East- to pray and also speaking one language in prayer, a language which non-Arabs describe as a "pure language"

God forgave humans and lifted the curse exclusively for
those who submit to God's will (Islam).

World wide, over a billion people gather worshiping with one language, one direction, one book, one God.

Re-united as brothers and sisters in towards the Kabba which is believed to be directly under the Throne of God in Heaven.

The rich with the poor, the educated with the un-educated, people from all parts of the world re-united Obeying One God, Submitting their will to God which is the meaning of Islam.

""And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah's favour on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth Allah make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided." Translation of the Holy Qur'an 3:103
