I recently found out that Disney On Ice’s latest was coming to the Bay Area and I wanted to come up with a clever way to pop the news.

I decided to leave a little note on the kitchen table so that when the girls came down they would find out.  But I wanted something a little more special than a plain note, so I decided to create some custom frames for each of them.

Surprise Disney AnnoucementNow, not only I can make the announcement in a special way, but I also will have a souvenir to hold a photo of each of them after the show.

I also cut out two sets of ears and added a bow on Minnie.    This was my first attempt of layering vinyl and I definitely need practice!  Layering vinyl minnie bowThe final versions are pretty cute.. and the kids are going to be SO EXCITED!
