Mickey Pretzels!

Hi Everyone!

I can't wait to share this layout with you - and I hope it brings a smile to your face, like it does to mine!
(Believe me - I can use a smile these days for sure!)

I made it a few weekends ago at an AWESOME 3 Day Crop Event - hosted by Scrap-a-Doodle Doo!

I used My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Hattie Collection papers for this 1 page layout documenting our "one of  a kind find"on our recent trip to Walt Disney World. I just love the colors.

The edges of the postage stamp base paper were inked with Ranger Distress Stain in Broken China - I love using Distress Stains this way. I made a frame out of the Hattie "Buddies" paper, using a little water and a rolling technique to make the curls, then set the photo of the pretzel inside of it on a different color mat.

The chipboard swirls in the corners were inked with the Broken China Distress Stain, and then hit with a little Vintage Photo Distress Stickles.

I cut the pretzel shape out using Cricut's Carousel cartridge in 2 different sizes with the Hattie "Buddies" paper, then inked it with brown chalk and a little Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Stain.  I then used Royal Dimensional Clear Coat to make the bumps for the salt on the pretzels, and after it dried, I painted them with Tattered Angel's Glimmer Glam in Chandelier.   I used my We Are Memory Keeper's Big Bite to create the holes and set the eyelets that I used to lace / sew the smaller pretzels onto the layout.

I hope you like this layout and have a smile on your face by now - remember - if you go to WDW - as of now - there is only one place you can get these MICKEY Pretzels - from the cart, across from The Country Bear Jamboree, in Frontierland.

Thanks for looking!
