Guess who we saw?

Can you guess by this photo?
We went to Disneyland yesterday for my birthday. This year you can get into Disneyland for free on your birthday and I so wanted to see it all decorated for Christmas. WOW! What a treat. All of the characters that we were able to see had outfits just for the holidays.
And there was a special lighting show of Sleeping Beauty's castle. It was just incredible with the lights hanging down like icicles and lights on nearby trees. There were a few too many people but the entire day was just magical.

Now for my Card Positioning Systems card for this next week.
I found a package of clear plastic snowflakes at the Dollar Tree and when I caught sight of them, I knew they would work on a project, especially a card front. These glorious Graphic 45 papers were the perfect match.
They already had some sparkle to them but I gave the top of the snowflake a good coat of Aleene's Paper Glaze and then sprinkled that with Martha Stewart glitter and Impress Rubber stamps chunky glitter. I just love using Aleene's Paper Glaze for holding glitter because it dries dimensional and you can use so much glitter with it and it holds onto almost all of it. When it is dry, you shake off very little excess.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
