Peachy Keen Guest Designer Week, Day One

To say that I am super excited to be a Peachy Keen Stamp Guest Designer, would be an understatement!
I feel like I am in a dream world ...
Somewhere far, far, far away in Peachy Keenland...
The Scrapbooking  Queen awoke to a wonderful
new world, where her castle had turned
into a cartoon and everything had cute adorable faces...
 As I walk around my castle and gaze upon the royal garden, The Queen comes upon her royal flower beds... where all her royal flower are singing and dancing in their pots!
Don't they just look so cute and happy!

 I used royal Bazzil and chocolate paper and my royal white gel
 pen, to add the stitching around the edges of each card.
Their faces are stamped with
PKS Basic Paper Doll Face Assortment
and I used my royal chalks for their cheeks.
They just are so happy to be in the Royal Gardens...

The Best Buds sentiment is from Pink By Design.

The 1st card measures 5 1/2" x 5" and the second card measures 5" by 5".  
The flower cuts were cut at 4 ",
from the Freshly Picked Cricut cart.
I used my corner chopper to round the front edges,
to soften the look of each card.
Now as The Scrapbooking Queen was admiring her kingdom and it's newly adorable surrounding, she decided to sit down and  spend some time listening to her flowers sing. She fell asleep in the warm sun listening to the sweet sounds of the flowers. 

***BEEP! BEEP! BEEP!***

Oh don't you just hate that! The alarm is going off and my dream has been interrupted, I have to get up for work in the real world now.
 Make sure to come back by tomorrow... to continue the dream with the Queen on her adventure in Peachy Keenland...


Peachy Keen has given me some blog candy in honor of my guest designer week!
PK-490 Everyday Character Face Assortment
