Dory Scrapbook Layout

Created this Dory theme scrapbook layout (base 12" x 12") using my movie tickets after enjoying seeing Finding Dory movie this wk. I like Pixar animated films.

Used Cricut cartridge to make the Dory and even at 3" some of the pieces are small & delicate. Added wiggle eyes. Used Glossy accents on Dory for wet look.

Stamped & die cut octopus to represent Hank that is really a septopus (since he has 7 legs instead of 8). Stamped & die cut greenery. Stamped & die cut sentiment.

Used a Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons PPPR SVG file, Just Keep Swimming, for the sentiment. Used the negative piece of cardstock to line up the letters properly on the scrapbook page making sure I did not lose the dots for the 'i' letters in 'Swimming.' 

If you've seen the film you will know that the seashells have a special meaning in the movie. Hand tore the Kraft cardstock for a texture look.
