Meeting Rapunzel

Several weeks ago, my family and I snuck away to Disneyland for Spring vacation. Our last day at Disneyland we were caught in a downpour and ran into a restaurant to take cover. My kids were delighted to find out that their favorite princess, Rapunzel, and Eugene were right next door!

The pictures of my kids meeting one of their favorite movie characters felt so dark that I knew I would need to brighten them up with pastel or bright colored papers. The Primrose Lane kit fit the bill perfectly!

I used my Cricut Expression machine and the cardstocks from the kit to create the hanging lanterns along the top of the page. I used my Cuttlebug machine to emboss one of the layers for more dimension.  I added some Mister Huey's Spray Ink (from the January Cabin Fever Kit) to represent all the rain we experienced that day!

I used the pink baker's twine from the kit to hang each lantern, tucking the end of the string behind the page and securing with a piece of masking tape.

The blue letters in my title are from my stash. I wanted the word "Rapunzel" to have more of a regal feeling, so I used a font from one of my Cricut cartridges and used three layers of cardstock.

If you have a little princess in your home, the Primrose Lane Kit has the perfect colors to scrap her special moments.

Have a great day!
