Two More Disney Countdown Drawers

Two very quick posts for today and tomorrow today, written ahead of time, because, as you read this, I will probably have just landed back in the UK after my week in New York to celebrate my 60th and heading straight back to Evesham. I hope I will be bringing back a case full of US treasure and a scrapbook of my week ……….. but we’ll have to see!
Progress has been a bit slow on the Disney drawers, what with flu and then preparing for my “grand hollybob”, but I do have until the end of April to get it all done.  This drawer features Tinkerbell (one of three I have to use).  The Magic Kingdom Castle is a sticker that I added Glossy Accents and a few flat back gems to.  I thought the background paper was such a brilliant find in my scrap box, as it looks just like fireworks.  Extra fine, translucent glitter gives the drawer the extra bling.
The next drawer is Beauty and The Beast, currently Iris’s very favourite film, having saved up her pocket money for a Belle dress to wear during a couple of her evening meals and the following fireworks while she is in Paris.
Again, not an awful lot of work, but I was pleased that as the drawers have a small gap at the top of their space so I was able place the chandelier perfectly between and slightly above the characters without it all looking a bit squashed.
