Still Cruising...

I was flipping through my box of pictures and found these fun pictures I had leftover from our cruise. They are professional pictures, but I really wanted them in the scrapbook somewhere. I still have others to work with too! One day I hope to finish this book....but since I won't be cruising anytime soon, I love reliving it through my pictures. :)

I started off with some inspiration from Off the Wall Craftiness. Kim posted this nautical themed color combo. I saw this and immediately thought Disney! And having these pictures at my fingertips...I was off to a great start this morning!

I chose to work with this week's sketch from Sketch Inspiration #217. These pictures just happened to be the perfect size to work with. :)

Next step....The Paper Variety challenged us to use polka dots on our project. This background paper is a combination of polka dots and little Mickey heads. :) The yellow paper is also from the Disney scrap stash from Reminisce Magic collection. :) I also added some navy blue ribbon for an accent. The circle stickers are from the same collection. :) I'm also using this for the Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs. I love seeing all these polka dots!

The flowers are from the dollar section at Michael's and of course I had to add some buttons. My button stash is dwindling and that is NOT cool! Luckily, I have an all day scrapbook shopping trip planned for tomorrow.

The Bon Voyage piece is leftover from one of our room decorations. I ordered these decorations for the sole reason that I would be taking them apart to use as elements in the scrapbook. :)

So next week is National Scrapbook Day and that is also my daughter's First Communion! I'm so excited for her!! So instead of scrapbooking all day, I will be taking pictures all day! I'm so glad my friend is getting back into scrapping. We have an entire day planned, coupons printed, shopping lists made.....I am counting down the hours!!! In the meantime, I'm hoping to take a chunk out of the stash today...after a fun day with the kids...with more :)

Have a great weekend!! I'll be back....
