Disney Quote in a Frame with extras

Goodness, two posts in one day - this must be a record for me.

I had an order to put a Disney quote on a frame for a friend.  This is what I came up with.  In case you can't read it, it says, "The most important thing is Family".

I created the red dot paper because Minnie wears red polka-dot dresses sometimes and I wanted to play off that design.  Oh, they have red furniture in their living room so no worries about the red frame. It was white but I painted it so it would match.

Then I wanted to give them something extra to go with it.  My first thought was two small black frames; one with a mustache and one with red lips.  I went to the closet to search for the frames and this is the first thing I saw.  

Then I said, "Hummmm.  Round, black, yeah I think I can do something with this."  

I knew I could put 'the ears' on it (gotta love hot glue). I covered the letter with black paint.  I still wanted to use the stache and lips idea so I cut them out of paper for a trail run.  The problem was the mustache was black and you couldn't see it.  I tried a white shadow but that looked a little funny.  I showed it to my daughter and she said 'NO!'.  Didn't like it at all.  sigh   She said why don't you but their monogram on it!!  ding ding ding  I like it!  Back to my cave - I mean craft room I went.  Found a font I liked, did a few more paper mock-ups, got it the way I (and my daughter) liked it, then finished it up.  But they needed something else. I knew Minnie had to have a red dotted bow to match the frame so I did that. But what to put on Mickey?  My daughter to the rescue again!  "Mom, he wears a bow tie at Disney World."  Great idea.  Sooo, after all that, here is the rest of their gift.

All of it together!  Of course, she can put it on her wall any way she wants to.
I just did it this way for the picture.  

Hope they like them!!!  Hot Dog!!
