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.

Smile - Happy - Bliss

Good afternoon!  It's another scorcher here in Chicago!  So I am hiding (again) in the house, enjoying the AC, popsicles and nice cold drinks - while I work on vacation pictures.

Today, I worked on CSI Case #257:

And here is how I chose to solve the case:

I probably switched out the papers on this one about a dozen times before I felt happy with the final combination.

Here is my case study:


Floral pattern ( papers)
Stripes (papers)
Flowers and leaves
Tissue Paper ( flowers)
String (for the banner)
Tiny Brads ( on banner and center of flowers)


I used a couple different words in my banner

The Scheme:

Seafoam green
Lemony Yellow
Carnation Pink

Off to get another popsicle!

Surf's Up!

I so wish we were in Typhoon Lagoon right now! 

Here is another summery page I made for Rochelle's challenge:

Here is her sketch challenge - with the added challenge of using striped papers:

I used scraps for this whole page!
And a strip of striped paper behind my photos.

The flowers are a mix of stickers and Mickey head buttons.
