Sweet Memories with Process Video

Today I'm up with a Tuesday Trigger challenge at My Scraps and More Forum. BE sure to hop on over and play along. This months theme is flowers so I chose to scrap a photo of my daughter with flowers for Valentines Day.

I used several collections from Crate Paper including Serendipity, Kiss Kiss, Flea Market and Craft Market as well as Maggie Holmes Confetti. You can find it all in the MSAM store. Use code MAYFLOWERS20 for 20% off.

Here's a look at the process.

Disney magic This Way

Hello all!
I'm so glad to be back and working on more Disney pictures! Today I'm hosting My Scraps and More Friday Free For All challenge on the message board. Be sure to hop on over and join us.


Walgreens often has a free 8x10 and I try to always take advantage of it. I decided this time to pick a photo of the castle at WDW and do a page that will start off all the pages for Magic Kingdom in my album.

Here is a look at the process. If you're reading in email click the link below to watch

When broken down it really is a simple layout but with the pops of gold and red against the black I think it creates a great page. I didn't want to go too overboard on embellishments but rather let the photo really shine.

I hope you enjoyed todays layout

Epcot - China

Today is going to wrap up my little Disney layout catch up and trip. I'll be heading back home with lots of photos to start scrapping another trip. I hope you've enjoyed my World Showcase layouts this last week. We're going to wrap it up with China. This is another area that the gardens and ponds are lovely and so relaxing to sit and enjoy. The foods pretty good too! LOL

I found some lanterns on my Pagoda cartridge that I decided to cut out and decorate the page with. It's a perfect touch.

Have a sunny day and I'll see you soon with some new projects

1000 Subscriber Giveaway Winners!!

congratulations to my 3 winners!!!!!!!!!!

and THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU  to all my Youtube subscribers!

I wish I could give you all something.

Disney Epcot - Morocco

On with our world tour, right on to Morocco. This area is fun to go back in the little maze of shops. There's a lot back there that most people miss.

Are you seeing a pattern to my pages yet? I kept them all fairly simple and similar in color schemes but yet I used a lot of different papers. This way they flow well together as all one part of the park but yet each individual country has a taste of their culture. At least I hope that carries over to the viewer.

Have a Tiggerific Day

Disney Epcot - France

Now we've finally made it around to one my most favorite places, France. The food here is fabulous!! I could eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner here! In face I have. LOL

I used some Jolee's stickers that I bought up when I first started scrapbooking and some really soft vintage papers to give the feel of France. Be sure to go in and watch the film from France. It's absolutely a stunning country that I hope to visit some day.

Ta Ta For Now

Disney Epcot - Japan

Next up on our tour is Japan. The ponds and gardens are gorgeous here. My son loves to hang out in the shops and pavilion here. I decided to use some lovely floral paper to mimic the gardens I enjoy so much.

Have a magical day!

Disney Epcot - Italy

One of our favorite things to do at Disney in to go the World Showcase in Epcot. I love all the architecture and the food is the best. This trip I decided to showcase some of the architecture from each country so for the rest of the week I'll take you on a trip around the world.

First up is Italy.

Have a Magical week!

Chip & Dale

I hope you're enjoy the Disney layouts that I'm finally getting around to sharing. I'm still having fun at Disney but hopefully you won't miss me with all this Disney loveliness!

For the first sketch I did a one page layout instead of two and did some old Disney photos. I'm getting closer to finishing our 2006 trip album. I'm also using up some really old stash along with newer which is always great.

I had a lot of fun creating the title and embellishment. The fire shaker and smore's sticks have been in my stash for several years and i just couldn't bear to purge them. I added some inking and wink of stella to the fire to update it some. The little leather frame is another really old item but it worked perfect to add in one tiny really blurry photo that I wanted to include.

Disney AK Explore

I'm back with another layout from Allison's 6x6 class. I did another one page layout and really took some liberties with the sketch to make it work for my photos. 

I pulled some old Crate Paper wood embellishments to finish off the page along with some really old rub ons. I'm loving using up my older stash and how they're helping me to finish up some layouts.

 Paper is Carta Bella with a few odd scraps of other paper to do the banner. Large Scallop Border is an EK success punch. Let me know what you think? Do you use 6x6 pads for layouts? I'd love to see if you do. Leave me a link in the comments.

Hugz  have a Star Studded day!!

Disney Spaceship Earth - 6x6

I never finished sharing my 6x6 layouts and since I was going to be going on another little Disney trip I thought I'd leave you with some Disney inspiration. 
This is jumping to the 5th sketch which I adjusted to another one page layout.  This ride is difficult to get good photos because of the darkness and none of mine were very good but I wanted to document it so I picked  a few of the best and will tell the story. Sometimes you just have to use what you have to get it documents.

I used several collections from Close to my Heart for the paper. They were left overs so it's a perfect way to finish off those collections. The title is from more of my older stash. The embellishments were punched from some 3x4 cards. The sentiments were perfect for my story to be told.
sorry for the blurry photo.

Hugz and have a Fantasmic Friday!

Avengers Assemble Process Video

Last fall we went to Texas and while I was scrapping my hubby took my daughter around to see the sights. While at the Dr Pepper museum she found this display for the Avengers. It was quite a surprise and treat for her. She snapped some selfies playing around and I just had to scrap them.
