Bedroom Door Nameplate

A friend of mine has been looking everywhere for something for her 5 year old daughter's bedroom door with her name on it.  Her daughter is in love with The Little Mermaid.  She was hoping to find something at Disney™ this winter, but alas...there was nothing with 'Abby' that she was happy with.  With some inspiration from Jill at http://www.benalycards.com/ and input from Abby, this is what we came up with:

Created with the Bitty Bugger (my Gypsy, lol), I just kept adding images from the Disney™ Dreams Come True Cricut® cartridge and welded them together.  Then the layers were cut out at the appropriate sizes.  "ABBY" is cut from the StoryBook Cricut® Cartridge, and "room" is from the tried-and-true Don Juan Cricut® Cartridge.  I love how it turned out!

Surprisingly, the only "new" items used were the black and the white.  Everything else was using stock that I had on hand.  Finished project measures 12" high by 24" wide.  Her father is a carpenter and mounted it on a nice piece of wood with rounded edges and it is hung by a beautiful red ribbon threaded through it.  I'm still waiting for photos of the finished project, but you get the idea ;)

In a houseful of boys, it was nice to do something wonderful for a little girl for a change!

Happy buggin'!
