Magnetic Paper Dolls

As soon as I saw Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge at My Creative Time I knew exactly what I was going to do. Our family took a trip to Disney World in July. In preparation for that trip I made and bought a number of toys/activities to keep my (then) 2 year old daughter busy on the plane. One of my brilliant ideas was to make magnetic paper dolls using the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge. So I bought the cartridge and a cute little lunch box tin to store them in. I cut out a doll from flesh colored paper and magnetic sheet glued them together and totally forgot about the project!

Here we are 5 months later and it's time to FINALLY finish this fun project for my now 3 year old.

As you can see I just stuck the doll to the outside of the tin and all of her clothes/hair/accessories are inside.

Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge 64

This is my first time entering a Peachy Keen challenge. I've always admired other bloggers projects that use Peachy Keen's stamps but have yet to own any of my own.

For this challenge I decided to take the sketch and turn it into an 8x8 layout. I started an album for my daughter before she was even born. I was all excited about it and that was when I got into scrapbooking. Unfortunately I only got three pages done before playing and cuddling and teaching took over all of my time. Fast forward three years when I came across the album while cleaning out my scrap space. Here is page number four.

Shopping Our Stash Challenge 25

This weeks challenge at Shopping Our Stash is stickers, rub-ons or chipboard. For my layout I used the Blitzen collection from BoBunny and a sketch from My Scraps and More.

I didn't have the shade for brown paper that I wanted to back my photos and center square with so I created it. I took white cardstock and chestnut chalk ink from chatterbox and simply sponged on the ink to create my textured mats.

I used chipboard, stickers and die cuts all from the same Blitzen line.

Cookie Monster Birthday Card

I'm so happy to be back to blogging. I took most of October off to get my daughter's birthday party planned and all the bits and bobs made.

The card I made today is based on the Frosted Designs card sketch.

Cookie is cut at 3" from the Sesame Street Friends cart. The sheriff badge is cut at 4" from Create a Critter and Cookie's cowboy hat is cut from Pooh and Friends at 1/2".

The lasso is made using brown floss from We R Memory Keepers and Mod Podge. The sentiment is stamped in Chestnut chalk ink from Color Box using the Just Saying set by Inkadinkado.
