Cricut CircleWeekly Challenge #22: Once Upon A Time Challenge

So glad you stopped by to check out my blog today! I have the WINNER of the Hello, Cupcake Blog Hop to share with you but first... I want to show you my latest Cricut Circle Challenge entry!

This week on the Cricut Circle Blog they challenged us to use Fairy Tale characters! Gee, that's a tough task when I have to beautiful little girls in my house. The only requirement besides that was that we use at least 2 Cricut Image cuts. So.... what do you think?

I created a little play set for my girls to play with. I'm debating whether or not I'm going to cut a slit and add sticks to the dolls or if I want to just create a little stand for each doll. I started with the 6 x 6 Imaginisce Enchanted paper stack. I bought the stack with Cardmaking in mind but I thought this sheet I choose made a brilliant background! I just added some Stickles and Glossy Accents for bling and shine. I also added some Liquid Applique to the clouds. The box I created with my new Martha Stewart score board... the woman may annoy me but she makes some awesome tools! Next I created my dolls....

I used my Once Upon A Princess Cricut Cartridge to cut out all of the dolls. I also used my Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids stamp set for their faces. Isn't this little fairy adorable???? I thought she was sort-of Tink-ish. But I loved the pink hair! I added a few gems with my i-rock to bling her up!

I thought this dress was a bit Cinderella-ish in style so I decided to use my blue Pearl American Crafts cardstock for the main part of her dress. Sorry about the shadows... the lighting kind of stinks at this time of day.

Here's the third princess in this happy little set! I'm just so in love with these... I don't know if I want to let my kids play with them, LOL! The nice thing about using my Cricut to create these is I can always add more dolls or make a duplicate if I need to!

Here's one last look at the set! If you notice the lump to the right of my box that's my cat Ally... UNDER the comforter. Yep, she's an under the blankets kind of cat....

Now you're probably wondering about who one that FABULOUS My Pink Stamper Punny-licious set the Robyn so GENEROUSLY donated to my blog.... it was:
