Mouse Encounter

My husband had a 2 day conference to go to in Disney World last week so we decided to make it a family vacation and go down a few days early. We had a fabulous time and the girls and I didn't want to come back! We are already asking when we can go back and both girls have said they want to be dancers in Disney World.


Anyway, I have a lot of photos to scrap and I do mean A LOT!! At times, three of us had cameras and now I have 1300 photos to go thru. There are lots of duplicates and some that won't make the cut so there won't be 1300 in the album. My oldest dd took videos of the fireworks shows and electrical parade so I can get still shots from them with software I have.


So, here is the first page I have completed. It is my sample page for the Scrapbook Variety challenge I hostess at Splitcoast Stampers. My challenge for this week was in honor of our Disney trip - use black, red and white and circles.


The girls got 37 autographs in their autograph books. I scanned in Mickey's autograph to I could add it to this page. I am going to do that with each of the autographs.

Supplies:
background - CM Mickey and Friends
everything else - Britt-ish Designs (Mouse in the House),/p.

Thanks for stopping by. There will be more Disney pages to come, both Digi and Traditional.

Critter Challenge #61

Happy Monday everyone! It is Critter Challenge day and this is my last DT challenge also with Critter Sketch Challenge. I have had a fabulous time serving on the Design Team. I will definitely still be playing along with the challenges! So onto the challenge. The rest of this month, our sponsor is Dustin Pike! He has such cute and adorable images at Doodle Dragon Studios. I discovered his images a couple of years ago when I saw a dragon image on someone's card and just had to check it out. Now, let's get on with the challenge. This week's challenge is to use at least two different punches or dies on your card. I guess I went a little punch/die crazy.

I cut the shaped card with a Creative Memories CCS pattern. The scallop circles are some leftovers from my recent scrapbook retreat gifts. I had cut them out with my cricut . The butterflies punched with the CM butterfly punch. I first stamped on white cs with a stamp and then punched just to add a little something extra to them. The sentiment was punched with CM square punches. The scallop circles and the sentiment are popped up with dimensionals. The dp is from SU.


I hope you liked my card! Be sure to check out the creations the rest of the DT made and join us in the challenge.

Critter Challenge #59

Happy Monday Critters! This is the first Monday of April so we have a new sponsor. The Critter team welcomes TSB for the next two weeks! So, let's get to this week's challenge. The Critter challenge is to use a fancy fold. I don't know what this card fold is called. I did it at a SU stamp club one time. The image I used is a Dustin Pike image. Directions: take 4.5x11 cs and score at 2" and 3 3/4" from each end. fold as a hill at the 2" and a valley at the 3 3/4" . That's it - easy peasy!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's creations for some great inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by!

Fluttering Flowers Frenzy

Hi everyone! I'm sorry I've been a little quiet on my blog lately. I had my scrapbook retreat a couple of weeks ago and afterwards I seemed to have had a major crafting block. But, I am here and I have a cute little card to share with you today. This card was made for the Ways to Use It challenge on SCS (WT316). I used a Deedee's Digis image called Joy & Blessings. Isn't this little butterfly adorable.
I colored it with Copics and cut around the image then popped it up on an oval cut with the CM cutting system. The pink cs is embossed with SU Elegant Lines folder. The blue cs is punched at top and bottom with MS Double Scallop Edger punch. Purple gingham ribbon added to top and bottom and it's done!

Thanks for stopping by!
