O Little Town, a Princess, and a Bat

Supplies: Fruit Cake Paper by Basic Grey; Colonial White Ribbon Collection, Bamboo Brads, and Bethlehem Stamp Set by CTMH; Textured CS by Bazzill

This card was made for the SC197 weekly card sketch challenge on SCS. Only after I finished making the card did I realize I jotted down the sketch slightly wrong as my big middle panel should be aligned more closely to the bottom and left. I drew it on my post-it at in the center, oops! But it still came out nice ^_~



And here is my pretty Princess and cutie Bat. We had finally found a costume for Audrey and when we got home she wanted to wear it right away. Caitlyn is going to be Super Girl for Halloween so when we found this Batgirl costume we just couldn't pass it up. It is SO cute. It has boot covers, a utility belt, the cape, mask, and even little wrist bands! They are going to be adorable as little super heroes this Halloween. Caitlyn is wearing a new Cinderella dress in this pic ^_~ Her Sleeping Beauty one finally got tossed (it was so ragged!!) so we let the girls have this one to replace it with. They were too funny posing and playing in their costumes. Caitie kept kissing Audrey and Audrey kept insisting she was Bat Man, not Bat Girl, lol.

In case anyone was wondering exactly how the dance layout came together so quickly (it was an under 10 minute layout), this is how I did it. The flower background paper was a scrap as was the photo mat paper (though I did have to trim this one a little bit). So I simply glued down the big strip on the plaid paper then matted the photo and glued that down. The flowers and journaling pieces are preprinted cardstock elements by My Minds Eye so I grabbed a couple that matched, layered, and the glued down (except the transparency, I used a big brad for that). A couple more regular brads for the mini journal tag and then putting on the letter thickers and all I had left was the journaling. Since these journaling prompts leave you with just enough to put a few sentences it was easy to fill. The mini journal tag holds Caitlyn's name and the date. Nothing fancy and everything was already precoordinated. Easy, simple, and quick :D

Too cute--the card, layout and girls! My boys can't decide what they want to be. So far it's been Transformers, Cars Pit Crew, various superheroes. I told them they'd better decide soon or they won't find what they want.
