Belle of the Ball

Hey crafty friends!! Are you all loving all the design team calls going on right now??? I know I am... It's so exciting! I have applied for a couple and I have my fingers crossed... Speaking of design team calls - Pink By Design has one going on right now!!! 

Trust me when I say this is one great team to be on. I'm sure you can tell from my posts that I love that company - and my fellow DT members. Check out THIS link for details. And don't be intimidated! I really didn't think I would ever get chosen, and here I am! :)

Onto my layout! It's another Disney layout! I'm not as happy with this one as I am with the last one I posted... But I do love how Belle turned out!!!

This is when Bria met Belle at Disney World this fall. It's not the best pic, but my husband was in charge of the camera at this character meeting so I'm just thankful a pic got snapped at all! :) There is going to be a second page to this with Sleeping Beauty, just haven't gotten this far yet! 

I cut this frame from the Sophisticated cartridge, as well as the banner with the sentiment on it. The sentiment comes from the Pink By Design stamp set Inner Princess. I also added some yellow pearls for some more detail. 

Isn't Belle gorgeous???? I mentioned a tip for intricate cuts yesterday and this is another perfect example of when to use stickles, etc. instead of trying to work with tiny paper cuts. I colored the whites in her eyes with a white Gelly Roll pen. The brown part of her eyes is brown Martha Stewart Glitter glue. I then used Glossy Accents to cover her whole eye. Her lips are also covered in Glossy Accents. 

I am entering this into the Terrific Tuesdays Challenge over at Scrappy Moms. I looooove their challenges!! 

Have a GREAT day, thanks so much for stopping by!! :)
