My What a Guy by Kellybell Designs

The Fantasyland expansion at Walt Disney World has brought a beloved character to life, the brave and mighty Gaston. He's handsome, he's strong and.... he's arrogant and uncultured. All that makes him a fun character for a meet and greet. He's happy to show off his biceps or challenge you to an arm wrestling match. Plus he's got his own statue and tavern inside Fantasyland. All this newness means you'll be taking tons of pictures of the new area, new character and new dining spot. Today, Kelly's collection is focused on that special guy, Gaston.

With so many princess kits in her store, it was fun for Kelly to focus on a very manly collection. This kit has dark, rich colors in manly patterns and plaids. For elements, you'll find a bicep arm, antlers, chandelier, beer glass, beer stein, tavern sign, tree, barrels, arrows, flowers, ropes, boot, belt, bow, tavern building, flairs, ribbons, hand mirror, Gaston silhouette, journal tags and much more. The full alpha is a deep dark red with a black outline.

Here's a pack of word art titles that are perfect for topping your photos from meeting Gaston or dining at Gaston's Tavern.
