The Little Mermaid, Blog Award Thanks and WINNER!!

Happy Sunday, everyone!!  I hope you had a great weekend!! My Getting Cricky design team sister Jessie of Sugarlips Sassy Surprises is headed to Disney World soon and wanted to make an autograph book for her daughter. Fellow design team member Shawn of Crafty Chics decided to turn it into a challenge, the Disney Autograph Book Challenge!! Shawn is asking everyone to create one autograph page (8 1/2" x 5") with a Disney character on it, link it up at Crafty Chics and then mail it to Jessie (visit Shawn's blog for all the details).

Hum, I wonder what Disney character I chose?? Ariel, The Little Mermaid :) (shocking, right??!!) I used Core'dinations Core Couture and cut the Little Mermaid from Disney Dreams Come True.

I had a hard time getting good pics of the pages because the paper is so sparkly. The background paper is from K & Company Happy Trails stack. I love this paper...there are some raised spots for dimension but you can't really tell in the picture. I love the look of the waves :)

Ariel inside the shell was also cut with Core Couture from DDCT.

Ariel was cut from DDCT at 4" using Core Couture paper. I embossed her tail with the Cuttlebug Japanese Scales embossing folder. I had a very hard time not popping her up with foam tape, or adding bling, but I didn't want to make the page too bulky. "Tales of a Mermaid" is from K Andrew Designs Pirate Tales & Fish Scales stamp set:

Karen said...

Oooh, I love this autograph page! :o) What's not to love, right? Gorgeous mermaid, paper so sparkly it's difficult to photograph, and Disney love? Ariel herself is going to want to swipe this when she signs it. ;) The paper is stunning and perfect! I love everything about this and when it's Disney time, Jessie's daughter will have the best autograph book ever. Beautifully done as always, my friend! (Can you believe I have zero Disney carts? It makes me weep!)

Hugs and blessings!

Unknown said...

This is a beautiful page for her book Lisa. I would have been so disappointed if you had done anyone except Ariel. The stamps were made with you in mind I think:)) So perfect!

Also congratulations to Amy for her win, I'm jealous I really liked those papers, haha!! I am double sure she will make some gorgeous things with it.

Congrats also sweetie on so many people giving you the awards, you so deserve these and so many more.

Hugs, Pam
