Disney Blog Hop: Day Two

To enter to win Mother's Day Bouquet Cartridge CLICK HERE

Welcome to the Disney Blog Hop: Day Two
If you have come here from Kaye's site you are in the right place.  If you just happened to stop by then go to Shawn's site to start at the beginning.  I think you like all of the Disney Inspiration prepared for today's Hop.

Yeah!!! It's my turn today to share some of the Disney STUFF-I've been working on.  Pictured above is the 3D Tee pee and Peter Pan Mini Album I created with my Cricut.  
I am posting the pictures today and tomorrow I will post a video of how to create the 3D leather textured 
Tee pee and some of the surprises inside the Mini.
So here are some more pictures:
It measures 11 1/4 x 11 and is free standing.  I inked it with Old Paper Distress Ink
Tomorrow I will stencil on some animal shapes to the sides using Cricut stencil material.

It measures 5x6 and will hold over 40 pictures.  Really!  I created lots of pull out pockets and lots of places for pictures or journaling.  I have lots to say about "My Boys" so there is definitely a lot of real estate in this mini
I used two paper lines:  Crate Paper from my "oldies" stash to create the cover and pages, and a new collection called Campfire by October Afternoon.

The Font came from Pooh Font Set-another Disney Cricut Cartridge

The Peter Pan Characters & Icons came from the Disney Classics Cartridge ( I love this one!!)
Peter Pan is cut at 4.2 inches.

I used an old Rusty Pickle stamp set for my pirate images & sayings. And some gold coins from JoAnn's.
This treasure chest has a surprise I will show you in the video tomorrow.

These pages have a surprise also and don't you just love Mr Snee! 
Here is a close-up:
 both sides of these pages says I will never grow up!
Here is Captain Hook! I love love love this Cartridge.
I used a border punch to create two pockets(and to simulate waves)  This page has a pull out as well.
Here is another look at both projects.  The mini album has a ribbon closure to keep it nice and tight 
and it fits inside the tee pee for a really boyish Home Decor item.  This album is great  for any boy 
themed room or Disney themed room..
Thanks for stopping by today on Day 2 of the Disney Blog Hop. 
Now for the Blog Candy-I will choose one Random person to win the above pictured
