Cameo, oh Cameo...

Where for art thou Cameo?  Oh there you are! 
I have always LOVED cameos and those black silhouettes images you now can see, well everywhere.  I've wanted to get one of those made of my girls every time we're at Disney World.  They have this amazing artisan that hand cuts them out while you sit and watch.  It's really amazing.  So when I saw this stamp set from Kim Wilson Designs, I had to get it!
I made this for two things, first for the recent call for PaperCrafts didn't make it... and in case it didn't make it, I wanted to put it in the current challenge at Moxie Fab called Appearance of Cameos and the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge this week.  It's simple, and a little shabby.
