Disney Pixar Artwork Scrapbook Layout

Some of you may know & others may not that
I've been creating 6" x 6" albums and one that
I have created is of my daughter's artwork.

My daughter sketched a favorite of mine & hers,
Disney Pixar Wall-E, for me in 2008. My daughter
is now a sophomore in college studying Art Animation.
I think it would be so cool some day to see her name
in Disney Pixar animated film credits or some such
animation film credits.

We saw the film at the theater and have the DVD.

Baby Boy Teddy Bear Card

Created this Baby Boy Teddy Bear Card.

First I made the Teddy Bear using brown
cardstock. Faux stitched the edges of the
Teddy Bear with blue ink and it turned black
after I let it set.

Was going to make another Teddy Bear using
brown cardstock and faux stitch it with white ink
when I tested white ink & saw that it showed up
looking brown but decided to use felt instead.

Not cut felt or fabric before with Cricut. Had a scrap
piece of brown felt and after cutting it twice and with
my crafty Tim Holtz scissors the pieces cut out.

Snoopy baby bottle in photo was my daughter's.
Used it in photographing the card since it had
color blue in it.

Simply Life Native American Day Bear

Created this Bear after going to the
Plano Balloon Festival Sat morn 9/17.
Even though the balloons did not launch
due to clouds we enjoyed being allowed
onto the fi
eld where the balloons were
inflated and this is not allowed during
a launch. I picked up some trading cards
on the different balloons from pilot & crew
of different balloons. One trading card was
about a balloon with Bears on it and info I'd
like to share with you about the Bear &
Native Americans.

The Bear fetish is a Native American charm
representing strength, courage & wisdom.
Believed to have the ability to heal & comfort.
It is also a protective spirit. It is considered
good luck to have the powerful and
intelligent Bear fetish.
