Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious



I have some fun things to share with you today. I was asked by the fabulous Brooke Stockman to be a guest designer for this week's Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. I think the whole idea of these challenges is genius and I love participating when I can! I was thrilled with this week's pick which just happens to be Mary Poppins. I decided to also work my SFYTT into a fun Mary Poppins creation as well. We were lucky to be able to see Mary and Burt at Disneyland last week. They were in front of the Coca-Cola building and then again dancing in the Celebration Street Parade. Doesn't she look cute?

So...my first creation was made with the "Feed the Birds" scene in mind. You all know how much I love birds, yet that scene always really scared me when I was little. I thought the old lady was super scary and then it was so awful that Mr. Banks wouldn't let Michael use his "two pence" to buy some crumbs for the birds. I decided to embrace my love of birds and face my fears and create a fun project. I used my nestabilites label die to make a window so you could see the bird seed inside.


I really liked all of the colors in the bird seed.
I used a tranparency& stamped the bird image with Cotton White StazOn. I folded the top over, pinked the edges and secured it by punching two holes with my crop-a-dile and added two different ribbons. The tags were computer generated and then I stamped the nest for the bottom. I had a lot of fun with this project.



I decided to incorporate a little "Mary" into my SFYTT card as well. I really wanted to recreate the feel of her fun outfit she wears once they jump into the sidewalk chalk painting. I chose a sentiment that I thought that Mary might say. It is fromPapertrey ink's Mega Mixed Messages. I was so thrilled to see how nicely it fit inside my ribbon label nestabilities die that just arrived from Ellen this week.

Her outfit has roses all over it, so I couldn't resist my favorite image from SU!'s retired "Gentler Times". I think I have done pretty well not using it in a design for a while. I colored it with reinkers, copic and prismacolor markers. All of the edges are sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink. I added a bit of lace, satin and organdy ribbon for a victorian feel. I asked my husband if it looked like a Mary Poppins card and he said No! Ugh!


OH well! I had fun with it! You will want to check out the other gals creations; they always blow me away...and Jen has a new guest designer for the month of May that you won't want to miss!

greyparrot said...

oh I loooove the bird feed packages, I may try a similar idea as a housewarming gift for a friend who is moving soon, and she is worried she won't get as many birds in her new garden so this would be perfect :)

"Practically Perfect in Every Way" is right and what do husbands know about Mary Poppins and papercrafting! LOL!! Both of these projects are just Scrumptious!! Your feminine vintagey style (esp. with birds and roses) never ceases to amaze me. You truly are the queen at that! Your eye candy is sweeter than a "spoon full of sugar" for sure!!
