A Magical Castle

 
Hobbycutz is such an amazing brand. Kobie's designs inspire me!
 
Take this cut out flower window for example. I feel like I am looking out the window of a nearby cottage, across the sea from this amazing castle.
 
Speaking of castles, I recently visited Disney with my daughter and granddaughter. Everything about Disney is real to 6-year-old Molly.
 
We ate dinner in the castle. She met all the princesses, had her picture taken with them, and got their autographs in her special little album.
 
And SHE became a princess herself, which allowed me to be the "Queen Mother" and get sprinkled with Pixie Dust, along with my daughter, the "Queen."
 
 
It was a truly magical day.
 
 
The breathtaking digital stamp image of the castle is from Digital 2 For Tuesday. I am so thankful that I came across this site quite some time ago. Cora graciously shares these images free of charge.

 
The paper is from Hobby Lobby. I used a Tim Holtz Die called, Tattered Banners to create the simple sentiment piece, along with a retired stamp from See D's (I don't think they are around anymore).
 
 
 I inked all the edges with Distress Ink and a bit of Stickles give some glimmer.
 
 
The image is colored with Prismacolor Pencils.
