A Not So Happy Girl~

Remember when I said this layout was for the 2015 NSD WWW Snackdown Challenge?

Well, it seems I got my layouts and challenges all mixed up.

That one was for the All Decked Out Challenge: Create a project with a beach or nautical element to it.

This is my WWW Snackdown Challenge layout~

Not A Happy Girl

And what can I say about the face Ashlyn is making as Holden steals a bite of her Mickey Bar?

It still makes me laugh.

And she is still fussing about it.

The best part is there was a cooler full of free Mickey Bars just a few feet away at the Mickey’s Backyard BBQ.

But, I guess they just wouldn’t have tasted the same.

1, 2, 3 & Here We Go~

A new DCWV Stack-a-Holic sketch challenge means it’s the perfect time to get back to work on my Disney 2014 album.

The sketch from pagemaps~

And it just so happens that I need a layout to accompany my Happiness layout.

Please tell me that I’m not the only one who sometimes has to go back and add pages to keep the album and story flowing.

Okay, maybe I am.

My layout~

123 & Here We Go

I used the same prints from the DCWV Chick Chat Stack for this layout as well.

Of course, instead of circles I used Mickey Mouse heads.

I guess it’s also a good thing that I take so many pictures, since it makes it that much easier to add pages.

Happiness Starts Here & Now~

Remember way back in January, I started my 2014 Disney Album?

I’m finally back with another page.

When we arrived at the Magic Kingdom it was an absolutely gorgeous day, and it was also right when the Dream Along With Mickey show started.

Not only was the show entertaining, but we got the biggest kick out of Hartly.

At times she was singing and dancing along and others hiding behind Travis or me.

My layout~

Start

I used DCWV’s Chick Stack filled with bright, happy colors mixed with embellishments from Simple Stories Say Cheese collections.

A few close-ups~

Guess who’s gotten in the habit of putting her layouts into page protectors?

Luckily this girl, because silly me knocked over an entire glass of tea over on my desk.

Magically not a drop got on either of my layouts. Yay!

Hello Mouse & Co. 2014~

And goodbye procrastination. He he.

I’ve decided that starting your former Disney vacation album right after you book your next Disney vacation might not be the best way to record all those memories.

So, I am a bit excited to say that I have officially started my Disney 2014 album.

My layout~

Hello Mouse 2014

I wanted everything to compliment rather than compete with my picture of Cinderella’s Castle taken when we first entered the Magic Kingdom, so I chose a textured paper and vellum prints from the DCWV Premium Paper Collection 5 Packs.

The Premium Paper Collection 5 Packs are filled with various types of specialty papers including textured, foil, vellum, burlap and laser cut papers.

A few close-ups~

Using a Mickey punch and several papers with different textures and finishes I was easily able to make my coordinating Disney embellishments.

If you’ve been to Disney lately, you know that you come home with lots of little collectibles like trading pins and even now your Magic Band, so I decorated a DCWV Kraft Nesting box to house some of Hartly’s little trinkets.

Hartly’s Mouse House~

With just a few bits, pieces and some washi tape her box was ready.

And since she also knows the Nesting Box set includes 11 more boxes that’s a good thing, because it looks like I’ve got more to make.

Oh boy.

Sara?

Knock, knock, knock.

Do you want to build an album?

Come on let’s document each day.

I never see you anymore.

Come out the door.

It’s like you’ve gone away.

We used to be best buddies.

And now we’re not

I wish you would tell me why.

Do you want to build an album?

Yes, I did go away~

Now I am back to our normal crazy family of five life and almost recovered from our Disney vacation and Thanksgiving.

The whole Frozen song thing….sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

I blame a certain little girl who now has me singing all the Anna parts while she sings all the Elsa parts.

Did I mention this is every time we are in the car?

Every single time.

And I think we watched this one too many times~

Elsa Sing A Long

And YES! I want to build an album.

I want to document each day in December, my most favorite time of the year.

I have all my December Daily goodies waiting for me.

I just need a bit of time to get organized and started.

I plan to mix items from the Ali Edwards December Daily Kit, the October Afternoon December Story Kit and my rather large Christmas stash.

If you’re looking for some fabulous printables including a December calendar or simply some inspiration, make sure you head straight to Marie’s blog.

I’ve got mine printed and ready. Thanks Marie!!

So, stay tuned…

Not The Big Cheese~

He might not be the Big Guy, but he is an Andrews’s family favorite…

Donald Duck.

However if you’re going by these pictures, he might not be the entire family’s favorite.

My layout~

Not-The-Big-Cheses

Hartly was a little less than thrilled to meet Donald.

But, the rest of us have a spot in our hearts for the temperamental yet totally loveable duck.

To coordinate with the Mickey images I’ve used on the other pages, I created a couple Donald silhouette images using my Cricut Explore and Mickey & Friends cartridge.

Must Be This Tall To Ride~

Being little at Disney means that every once in a while you’ve got to sit and wait.

Since You Must Be This Tall To Ride~

Must-Be-This-Tall

Fortunately that usually means a delicious Disney snack or maybe even a little shopping.

A close-up~

Must-Be-This-Tall-Close

I used DCWV’s My Sunshine Stack along with various Simple Stories Say Cheese embellishments to create my little cluster surround the girls enjoying a little down time.

And the other thing you do a bit of at Disney is waiting in line.

Love-This-Waiting-Line

I love this picture of Hartly waiting for her turn.

Whatever it is we’re waiting on must be good, since it’s holding her attention.

Not only did I use the cut portion from my first page as the base for this layout, I simply flipped my embellishment cluster to mirror it as well.
