Welcome to the Sparkly Things Distract Me Blog Hop brought to you by our amazing hostess Janice from Cricut Confessions! This is the first time that I am participating as a contributor to a blog hop! Thank you to Janice for the invite! If you have arrived here from the very talented Celeste's blog then you are in the right place! I'm not sure what Celeste's project for this hop is going to be, but if it isn't some of her new jewelry she's been making be sure to go back and explore what she's been up to. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! If you just stopped by my blog and would like to start at the beginning of the hop then please go to Janice's blog Cricut Confessions.
Here is a layout of a picture I took that I love. This is the Cinderella fountain statue in Fantasyland located behind the castle at WDW. I stood off to the side of the fountain and took the picture from behind shooting up at the castle. Dreams can come true...
The patterned paper is by Fancy Pants Designs. The vellum quote was from my stash and attached with CTMH mini brads. The flowers were cut in various sizes ranging from 1 1/2" - 3" out of Colorbok pearlescent paper, with inked edges and topped off with EK Success gem stones. The picture was matted on DCVW Glitter Stack paper.
I just love the Cheshire cat and I couldn't wait to make this cut with the hot pink Best Occasions metallic paper I had! This card makes me smile all over my face! Cheshire Cat was cut from the Disney Classic Cricut cartridge at 5" using Best Occasions metallic paper, Best Occasions shimmer paper and Colorbok cardstock. The yellow and white background patterned paper is from the DCWV Spring Glitter Stack and the colorful zig zag paper is by K & Company. The kid quote stamped sentiment is by Inkadinkado.
