Princess In Training

HI!!!! It's been a long time! :) I decided to take a small breather from posting much this week since this past month was so crazy! My nephews have been here visiting as well so I have been enjoying time with all the kids and haven't done much crafting. I HAVE done some crafty shopping though... I was trying to make a haul video (my first video!!) last night but things were just not going my way... I can't find my tripod and the memory card in my camera decided to corrupt! Hopefully soon I can get a video of all my great findings for you guys!

It's Brittyn's very first birthday on the 9th so I made her up a card yesterday. Her birthday party is going to have a Baby Disney Princess theme.


I have only ever made a couple shape cards and I wanted to try one for the Peachy Keen Challenge this week. I got the card base from Birthday Bash. I embossed the cream layer with a dotted Cuttlebug folder. The Pink swirls in the background came from the Storybook cartridge. The cut was a square and I just glued it onto the cream circle and trimmed off the excess. The card base is misted with Pearl Glimmermist. In person it has such a beautiful shimmer to it. The baby was cut from Baby Steps, and her crown was from Once Upon A Princess. Her cute little face is from the Wide Eyed Kids set. I stamped her onesie with the medium dotted stamp by Peachy Keen. The scalloped oval for the sentiment was cut from Gypsy Wanderings and the 'Princess (in training)' was from a Scrappy Mom's set. The ribbon and bling are both from Michaels. 

I hope you like!!! Brittyn really is a little princess so this card really suits her!!

I have a couple other pieces of news to share!! :) A couple weeks ago my layout was randomly picked as the winner of the EAD Designs Color Challenge!! I cannot wait to go shopping in their store, they have the cutest stickers!!! 

I was also picked in the Top 5 for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday Challenge!!! I was soooo excited!! This is the first time I have been choosen based on talent, and not just a random pick!!! 

Anyways, I hope to get back into my craft room soon! My sister in law is due to have a little baby girl any day and I need to get her a card and a bag!! PLUS both of my girls have birthdays within the next few weeks that I need to get ready for!! Whew! I have a lot to do! Better get at it! :) Have a great day!!!
