Disney's 50th

 I love that we were able to celebrate not only the 50th anniversary of Disney World, but a long time ago, we were also there for the 25th.  I need to find scrapbook pages from then to compare to my style now.  it ought to be interesting to see how styles, techniques and products have changed over the years.

This was made with all scraps.  I found the design on Pinterest, and believeme, this doesn't look anything like the original!
I could not figure out the correct measurements, so once I cut the big pieces, the rest were just pieced together bit b y bit with all leftover scraps.

The flowers were from Michael's - I just found them.
And this will probably be my last trip to Michael's as I think their prices have gotten outrageous.
Even having some of the stuff on sale did not entice me much.

I used a cutting die on gold papers to create the Mickey head pieces.
And the 50th title is chipboard, and I "heart" Disney piece is a wooden set.

I also added a bit of Nuvo Drops here and there.

Getting closer to finishing up this trip!

Flower and fun

 Good morning!  While I recover from strep and some sinus issues, I worked on some of my pictures from the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival in Disney.

I used a punch and my Coluzzle cutting system to make a few hexagons, and then for the added twist, I used a chicken wire stencil to create the hexagon background.  

Hopefully, I can knock out these sinuses issues, but in the meantime, I'm hoping to get the rest of the topiary pictures done!

Saddle up for a Wild Ride


'Woohoo!!   Another successful day of scrapping those Disney pictures!  

I used up more old stash - rub ons, chipboard, sequins and some jute.
I loved that I was able to use up more scrap paper.
And I even dusted off the corrugator to use on some scraps.

This sketch from Rochelle Spears from the Scrappy Friends challenge this month was my inspiration:

We Got Soaked!

 I am really going to miss the original Splash Mountain ride! 

Really sad to see the classics getting moved out to make room for the new,  but there is nothing wrong a little nostalgia.

This was for the new challenge at Lasting Memories - 
create a layout with at least 4 different squares, and for the twist add a square shaker box!

I spent a lot of time on this one, trying to make a shaker box.
I used to make them when they first came out, but it's been a while.
It took me a minute to remember how to do it.

I used a leaf die and some blue papers and came up with the splashes.
And adding a few sequins is never a bad idea.

The Little Mermaid

 Good morning!  It's super early, the sun is out and I get to play at my desk for a bit today:

It took me a while to put this together, but I had fun!

I used this Tic Tac Toe board from Scrap with Stacy for some inspiration:

I used Gems, Circles and Ephemera for my win.

I few pieces of chipboard, Nuvo Drops, and a lot of older stickers finished this up for me.

Thanks for stopping by!!

3 months

 It's hard to believe I just finished a page for my new granddaughter and I am already behind!  She will be turning 7 months next week!!

It's NOT hard to believe how many pictures I have taken that I plan on scrapping!

This is for challenge #691 at Lasting Memories:

I cut a large circle for behind the pictures
and used a circle punch for some polka dot and striped patterned papers.

For the added twist, I added some BIG buttons and few little Mickey shaped buttons.

Thanks for stopping by!!
