Nicolette, this one's for you...
One of my very favorite bloggy buddies, Nicolette of Beyond Scrappin', is sharing her birthday with us by hosting a BIRTHDAY BASH BLOG HOP, and the theme is Disney.
I'm your last stop of 25 or so ... if you're joining me before hitting the rest of the terrific bloggers, please start at Nicolette's blog (click HERE), wish her a happy birthday, and tell her I sent you!
Now I think I remember ... (and you may know how that "think" is tough, since I've celebrated far more birthdays than Nicolette!) ... that Nicolette's favorite color combo is pink, black, and silver. As a result, I dressed Minnie in Nicolette's favorite colors (a pink leopard-print paper!) and posed her in front of her very own Mouse House.
I created the Mouse House from an SCAL cut, using my Cricut Expression (yes, you can still cut using SCAL and your Cricut, despite what you may have heard).
I cut Minnie using the Cricut "Mickey and Friends" cartridge, the word "happy" is cut in a glitter cardstock. I found it by relying on my good friend SHAWN's "My Cut Search" program (typed in the word "happy" in the search) and there I found it on my "A Child's Year" cartridge. I would have never looked there!!
For the B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y bubbles, I simply printed the letters on pink paper (using the Mickey font) and punched them out using a 3/4" Marvy punch. Both of the butterflies are from Creative Charms; the larger one "flies" on beading wire.
The pink roof lifts off for treats or a gift.
