Tiddly Inks Tuesday - Book or Movie Character

LAUGHTER is timeless.  IMAGINATION has no age.  And, DREAMS are forever.  Walt Disney.

How true Walt Disney was in his interpretation of these parts of ourselves.  There is always a reason to laugh, no matter how old you are, how long time progresses or where we are in the world.  Laughter is simply laughter and sometimes the best medicine a girl could ask for.

Imagination is boundless and ageless.  From the stick drawing you create as a child to the well thought out card you make as an adult.  Imagination can be found in play, in reading, writing, art.  It can be found in the clothes we wear, the music we listen to and quite frankly, the world we live in.  Where would we be without imagination.  Would I typing on this computer?  Would I have been able to create the card I am about to share with you.  Creativity has much origination in our imagination.

And Dreams, we often forget we have them once we become adults, get a full time job and begin to raise a family.  We put many of our dreams on the back burner and often forget they are there.  But again, Walt Disney is correct, dreams never leave us, they simply fade into the background until we are ready to retrieve them again or until we simply make new ones.

Why all this talk of laughter, imagination and dreams.  Well, there are a few reasons to share these thoughts.  First, as crafters and artists these are words to live by.  Thoughts that can help inspire our simplest desire and our most beautiful creation.  Also, at Tiddly Inks this week our challenge is to create a project inspired by a book or a movie character.  Books and movies can be such powerful influences on our life.  It all depends upon us.  Also, I chose a book that was made into a Disney movie for my project today so why not begin with a quote from Walt Disney.

The project I created today uses the Tiddly Inks stamp, Kiss me, and is inspired by the Disney movie the Princess and the Frog.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Wild Orchid Flowers
Cheery Lynn die
Spellbinder's dies
EK Success Punch
MS Rose Leaf Punch
Crystal Stickles

Well, that's it for me and my creative thoughts and wanderings.  I hope I inspired you to join us in our challenge over at Tiddly Inks.  Please don't forget to use a Tiddly Inks image in your project.  Also, if you have ever stopped by the challenge blog you know how wonderful the creations by the rest of the Design Team are.  I hope you can take a moment to check them out and leave some love for the rest of the girls.
Thanks so much for stopping by,
