Bibbidy bobbidy boo..

Today is my last design team inspiration piece for the year for Visible Image. Helen and Mark are having a well deserved break starting on Wednesday until 2nd January. The next time I am back with some Visible Image inspiration will be in January when we will be starting to showcase their totally awesome new stamps!

For today I thought that I would weave a little Christmas magic and share a final post of our wonderful Disneyland Paris trip with Daisy. This is the second art journal "Moment" I made to remember this magical holiday.  If you missed my first Moment you can see it here.
For this art journal Moment I chose to capture the memories of the Princess lunch we enjoyed...
A real bibbidy bobbidy boo Moment...
 As I mentioned before Daisy adored Fantasy land and the castle.
The Princess lunch was hosted in a purpose built restaurant in Fantasy Land.

From the moment we walked in Daisy was just enchanted. We saw not 1 but 4 princesses which she genuinely believed were real.
I think my photos show just how spellbound she was.
We were visited by the gorgeous Cinderella,

Snow White
and Belle

. Daisy was totally entranced and honestly believed we were in the company of the real deal. The princesses were so professional and treated our darling sweetheart like a real princess.They really took the time to talk to her, sign her autograph book, pose for photos and admire the Princess Anna dress she was wearing.
The food was fine dining and unlike a lot of the Disney food fare we sampled was about these for deserts.
I decided to use the photo of Daisy with Cinderella for my focal for my Moment as think it shows the the pure joy on our little sweetheart's face. I fussy cut it out as I wanted it to become part of the background.
I added some infusions and distress oxide ink to my mixed media card to start to create a magical background. Salty Ocean is a great Cinderella colour, perhaps I might rename mine Cinderella Blue!
I added some gold ink through the strobes stencil
 to create some star bursts

I stamped and gold embossed the clock swirl from the Ahead of our time stamp set several times

 as a reminder of that moment in time with the Princesses.
I also stamped stars from Universal
 to add a little more magic
and also some celebratory bubbles using those from  the dare to swim stamp set
The 2 quotes I used were
Make a wish from Own it!


So here is my finished Moment

I hope that when Daisy is older she can look back and remember the day she met her real Princesses and remember the Moments I have stored for her in Jane's Journal. You can see just how versatile Visible Image stamps and stencils are for everything, including art journalling and mixed media work. We made a wish and made memories which  really are,
