Every Princess Dreams of Her Own Castle

Hello! It's time for the August Paper Cubed Challenge! This month we were to make a picture holder and it couldn't be a frame, why was that so hard for me? I thought and thought on what to make and then I found this cute castle stamp at a local craft store and knew I wanted to make it in to something for Sadie's room. I stamped it four times and colored it in with Copics and then cut each piece out. I used a paper mache' cube which I covered in some pink girly paper to adhere the castle pieces to. The castle is really very sparkly, it just doesn't show up well in the photo. I used some shimmer paint mixed with alcohol to spray on it after I colored it. I also added some jewels which are a new item in the SU catalog, love them! The picture of Sadie is one taken last Fall, she was tired at this point in the photo shoot so she sat down while Shelby was being photographed and the photographer just happened to turn around and caught this perfect photo. Make sure you check out the projects by the rest of the Design Team, here are their links:

Hi Sandy, this is just gorgeous. What a great photo too. The best photos are always the ones that are unstaged aren't they.
