More Scraps to Play with...

While I was putting my 3yr old to bed, somehow we started talking about a sign for her bedroom door.  Then, she convinced me to make her a "surprise" with her name, sea turtles, and fish on it.  At first, she also asked for a lion...I convinced her that lions can't swim, so we should stick with sea creatures...She considered...and agreed that would not be good.

After the Scraps Blog Hop, I was still inspired to use scraps for this project.  Thankfully, having them all orgaznied by color, really made it easy to choose papers.    Here are most of the ones I used:

I am very happy with how it turned out...The entire thing is made of scraps and took less than an hour or so to put together.  I used the Create a Critter and Stretch your Imagination Cricut cartridges.  Because my daughter loves the Mommy/child...Daddy/child...Sister/Brother relationship.  I tried to pair up all the animals.

I was even able to draw my 13yr old son away from his video game to help me put pop up dots and goggly eyes on  the sea creatures.   I think the Starfishes and Turtles were my favorite...I think I will add smiles to them, though.

Turtle were definitely a requirement to this project...My daughter loves the turtles from Finding Nemo....She thinks that turtles say, "Dude" like Crush does on the movie! 
I hung the sign on her knob that the "surprise" would be waiting for her when she wakes up...I think she is really going to love it. Hope you enjoyed the blog hop this weekend.  I will be drawing for the blog candy on there is still time to leave comments/become follower.  Thanks for stopping by... :)  ~Angie
