America the Beautiful

One of our favorite parts of Disney is The World Showcase.  The older the kids get, the more we can explore, enjoy and learn.

Not that they haven't experienced America enough but here we are at the American Adventure:

I used this fun sketch from Sketch N Scrap:

The accordion flowers are from a kit from Little Yellow Bicycle.
Those awesome resin Mickey heads were found on Ebay!  They are sooo cool!

A Trip to Remember

Hello there!  I was able to find some time after work today to play at my desk.

To start, I used the right side of the 2 page sketch from Let's Scrap:

I have had this map holder/ pocket thing in the stash for a very long time.
I slipped in a copy of the map to the Magic Kingdom.
I also added a list of our Top 5 things to do in the MK.
The tag was a leftover piece that's been round for a very long time also.
The wooden Mickey head pieces are from Michael's.
And then a few random buttons found their way onto the page.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Now Showing...

Winding down for the day...

I love how this one turned out!

I forgot I had film strip washi tape!  So excited to remember it was in the stash!
I also had the large kraft stars with gold dots hiding around.
The film pieces - the camera, film can and clapboard were found on the internet, resized, printed and hand cut.

My favorite piece is the shaker box of course.  I used Stickles on the top frame - and had to wait forever for it to dry!
My filler consisted of:
gold glitter
white micro beads
black micro beads
tiny white star confetti
and a mickey head confetti piece.

For my starting inspiration, I used sketch #333 from Sketches In Thyme.
It started out looking like the sketch, but then the elements just seemed to have a mind of their own.

Our Favorite Resort

Here are a few more pictures of our favorite resort at Disney World:

I hand cut all of my elements from the Aloha Polynesia collection from Kellybells
I also added some paper flowers and strip of bamboo (found at a scrapbook convention years ago) and a couple of hidden Mickey's.\

I used this sketch from Sketchabilities:

Hollywood Studios 2017

One of the hardest things for me to do is get a good picture of a page that has a lot of shimmer, glitter, sparkle...

Here is a page where I used bits of gold holographic paper, gold Mickey head confetti, and gold wooden star elements...

And in my picture it is sooooo hard to tell!!

I used this sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:

I also added some chipboard film strip elements - colored with black markers.

Thanks for stopping by!!


Good rainy morning!  I finally found some time to get back to my desk and work on some pages.

Here is my first for the day:

This was our first time to see Pandora.  The scenery was really beautiful!

I used this sketch from Sketches in Thyme #332:

I chose a stack from Colorbok for this page.  All of my flowers were hand cut from the patterned papers.  I added some leaves to give it a bit of a Pop.
