Welcome to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Hi Everybody!
Welcome to Day 2 of the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!  Hopefully you just came from Jessica at the  If not, please head over to see our hop hostess Shawn at so you can start from the beginning.

Are you ready for some more Disney magic today??  I made a little home decor project to share with you.  Here's the details:

*Mickey shaped paint chips (I got mine from Home Depot.)
*Pink By Design = Simply Everything stamp set
*acrylic paint
*picture frame

*I had to paint around the Mickey heads since they had the paint color name printed on the bottom corner.
*I then glued twine around the head to add texture.

*This sentiment went perfectly with the multi-colored Mickey heads, and it's how I feel after coming back from Disneyland!

This was a total crafty experiment for me.  I've always wanted to use paint chips, I adore twine, and like getting my hands messy with the paint!  I might change a couple of things, but all in all I was pretty happy with how it turned out :OD
And now for the blog candy:

    I love your framed art. I had to chuckle a bit, because my hubby went to HD yesterday and came back with a stack of paint chips for me...LOL! No Mickey shaped ones though. My favorite PBD stamp (for now) is Scriptures.
