Mouse Ears

Edit:  Awww, I didn't win but I think it's still super cute!

I thought I would participate in this week's scrapbook challenge over at TGF too.  Above is the layout to follow.

Here's my interpretation of the layout.  Because we had such a fun time at Disneyland and the kids still can't stop talking about it, I thought I'd better start scrapbooking about the trip.  So this page is solely about their new mouse ears.  They each got different hats and my older two got to pick their own ear styles and patches too.  You can click on the picture above to see their hats close up.  I put a description of each hat in the colored circles on the left.  I traced the large black Mickey ears from another Disney srcapbook set and the letters are die cut.

These are my kids represented by TGF stamps and wearing their mouse ears.  I love the way these came out.  My daughter was made with Ruby's head and Stamping Anya's body.  I left the message on the shirt the same since my daughter likes stamps too.  I used Cuddle Anya's hat as a template and kind of just trimmed it to fit.  The ears are circle punches that I colored with my silver gel pen.  I glued some bling and a gold tiara on the front.  My older boy is made from Happy Day's Oliver and Dress Me Ian's body/clothes.  I put Mickey's head on his shirt instead of the skull.  My son's hat was a lighter blue so I just colored it with a darker blue and put some glitter to match.  His ears are also circle punches and I drew in the mouse heads.  The little one is from the Oh Baby set.  I just turned his beanie into a mouse ear hat.

All the hats and my littlest one's ears are cut from felt.  That is my new love--felt.  Especially from PTI.  It cuts so nice and clean compared to ones I bought at Walmart.  Hahaha.  I can't wait til they come in new colors.

Thanks for reading!  Have a great night!

What a cute layout! I commented on the TGF Gallery too, I thought I already commented here, but maybe I didn't click post in the morning rush. Anyhow, the hats are soooo cute! So talented with the altering/customizing!
