Once Upon A Princess-and another BBTB2 challenge.

Well this weeks challenge over at BBTB2 is from Joanna (aka Joeygirl86) to use the Rainbow from the Once Upon a Princess Cartridge. I just LOVE this cart so I was looking forward to doing this challenge and decided to do another layout. I'm really getting into doing layouts and have so many ideas for some of the carts to do little scenes with some of them. I have a few planned out in DS and working on some with my new Gypsy (yes I did finally get one and still learning it but do love the portability factor) I'm going to try and work on one this week so we'll see. Anyway back to the current challenge.......(See how easily I get off track, oooh something shiny! LOL)
The hardest part for me on doing layouts, cards, altered projects or anything is picking out the paper. I love to buy it and have lots of it (like all of us Hee Hee) but have the hardest time using it. I always buy the stacks and then I just can't bring myself to use it! So I've been trying to use some of the older stacks that I have had forever. I can always pick out the card stock but the patterned paper just throws me for a loop. And the thinner paper just doesn't cut as well on my Cricut (I always forget to adjust all the settings, paper rips, and I get frustrated, then I forget to put the settings back, paper doesn't cut, and I get frustrated, what's a girl to do LOL) Well on to the "plan" of this layout......................  
Well the inspiration of the layout was, of  course, the rainbow which was cut  at 4" w/shadow and I have to give thanks to Joanna for the idea of the white shadow, and I just love it! She did the Bless this Nest challenge a while back and used a white shadow and I just loved it and thought this would be perfect with the  pastel colors, so everything has a white shadow. The Butterfly and the Bird are both cut at 3", Castle is 6", Precious is 3", Damsel is 2" and the photo mats are 6" x 4". I also used a Martha Stewart punch around the page and Sizzix sizzlits corner punch. Added a bit of wire on the butterflies for their antennas and some punch flowers with a touch of bling and some sparkly ribbon. I also used my chalks to give everything some dimension along with popping almost everything and can't forget the embossing and a little pen work. Well that's about it for the Rainbow challenge this week at BBTB2 hope you can join us and remember if you don't have Once Upon A Princess you can use any cart that has a rainbow or make your own! Hope to see
you there and please if you like what you see, please leave a comment, it really does inspire me and I thank you for taking the time to show me the LOVE! Have a wonderful day!

Oh golly, I'm getting so much inspiration from this layout. I am in the midst of doing a scrapbook for a former coworker for her baby girl and I'm heading over to my Cricut as soon as I finish writing this to model a similar page layout. Your paper choices are fantastic and don't look like they gave you fits at all. Thanks for sharing this wonderful design.
