Say Cheese

Wednesday, March 2, 2016

I've got a new Disney page to share today!
***Simple Stories Say Cheese & Say Cheese II collections***
This was created for the latest challenge at Scrap Our Stash which is this:

What inspired me immediately from the book cover was the banner.  I still have a small love affair with banners...and, let's face it...the colors scream "girl" to me and I just don't have photos like that, much less supplies!  Even this photo with just ME in it would not go with the colors on this cover.  Yes, I could have looked harder and found something else to inspire me, but, I like banners.  So there you have it.
In looking through my supplies, I came across this Sn@p! Card from the Simple Stories Say Cheese II collection which provided the perfect space for my banner.  I used a couple of small gold brads to anchor the banner at each end and also used some gold sequins scattered across my page.  To further extend the gold requirement of the challenge, I used my Silhouette to cut the Mickey outline and my title from some scraps of gold paper.  This made me realize something---I NEED MORE GOLD PAPER!!  I wish I had cut my title a little larger but, as I said, it was a scrap.  No chance for a do-over.  That's okay...I still like it.
I used a sketch from one of my favorite designers, Susan Stringfellow.  You can find her blog with the inspiration sketch and her example here at Sketch Savvy.

Okay.  You know what I'm going to say next.  Go to Scrap Our Stash and take the challenge!
