Mickey & Friends Blog Hop day 1

Welcome to the first but not last Mickey & Friends Blog Hop. This hop is scheduled from Sept. 29 at 8:00 am through Sept. 30 at 11:00 pm.

If you have come from Janet's blog, you are on the right track. If not and you just happened to come to this blog, you can go back to the beginning HERE: Lisa and hop along with us.

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fa...bulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.

The hop is a 2 day hop so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup twice. Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops. Please come back both days to see great projects.

My project for today is a photo holder using a big clothes clip.  I really love these and have made a lot of gifts with them!  They are great for a locker (just glue some magnet material to it), or your desk at work! I have one on my desk!

Here is a list of the materials I used:  A large clothes clip, Happily Ever After cricut cartridge, My Expression, several different colors of cardstock, printed card stock, fibers, large pop dots, my favorite adhesive, rubber cement, blue glitter glue, red stickles, black pen, white gel pen, paper cutter,& corner rounder.
                                                                                                                                                                            First I cut my black, yellow, blue, flesh color, and white card stock and placed them on my cricut mat.  I cut the shadow out in black, then the next layer which was Cinderella on white.  Then her hair, top of her dress, gloves and headband, face and arms/chest. All her pieces were cut at 4 1/2".  I got rid of the earring and eye pieces they were too hard to work with.  Then I started to assemble her here is a picture of some of my layers:   
I am new to the layers so I was having a hard time with the white spaces between the layers.  I know that you have to use your marker to outline but I was just having a hard time with the way it looked.  After all the layers were put together I did the outlining, used my blue glitter glue to give her blue eyes, and a blue earring.  Next I used the red stickles for her mouth.  After it dried I used the white gel pen to give her a white mouth inside. Next I measured and cut blue polka dot paper and glued it to the front and back of the clothes clip.  I tied white fibers to the sides, and cut a frame so a picture could be added later.  Here is the end product:
Hope you like it!  Thanks for stopping by!
