Believe~

The magic of Disney is just something to behold.

Especially on a young child’s face.

My layout~

Believe

I love the smile on Hartly’s face as she gets a hug from Cinderella.

A few close-ups~

Believe Close 1

And even more the uncertainty to whatever Cinderella has asked her in the next photo.

If my memory serves me correct it had something to do with her older brother possibly being a prince.

Believe Close 2

Wanting my pictures to be the focus I kept things pretty simple with a few banners, buttons and wood veneer.

Love Me & The Mouse~

We are currently in the middle of Snowpocalypse 2016 here in Virginia.

So, several of my crafty friends and I decided to have challenges to keep us busy.

And to take our minds off the fact that we missed out on getting that last gallon of milk or loaf of bread. He he.

Seriously….did you see the news?

There was none to be found for miles!!

Snowpocalypse 2016 Challenge #1: Scraplift Someone.

I decided to take on this fabulous layout from Paige Taylor Evans~

Love

Swoon. Right?

With me still being in Disney mode I made a few alterations.

My layout~

Disney-Love

As you can see I didn’t use the buttons, but I really didn’t have that many in Disney colors.

So, I chose to use patterned paper instead.

A close-up~

Disney-Love-Close-Up

I did add several embellishment clusters similar to the original.

And believe me, I will be revisiting the original layout to use up my button stash.

Make sure you check out more of Paige’s layouts as they are all so inspiring.

Not Today Zurg!

“Come to me my prey.” said Evil Emperor Zurg.

And we did!

“Prepare to Die.” said Zurg.

Just like Buzz Lightyear we said, “Not today Zurg!”

My layout~

Not Today

Of course, like Buzz Lightyear we defeated Zurg and saved the galaxy.

The best part of this layout was Hartly asking me where she was.

If you look closely enough you’ll see her hiding behind Travis. He he.

A few close-ups~

Not Today Zurg Close 1

To compliment the bright colors of the ride I used October Afternoon’s Midway Collection.

I won’t mention who actually got the highest score out of the four of us, but I do think it was someone in my spaceship.

Or just wait a bit since I have gotten really busy working on my Disney 2014 album and have a bunch of layouts coming.

I just need to start blogging a bit more. He he.

Who’s Flying This Thing~

And are they a licensed driver?

Because we went up and down and up and down.

Over and over.

In fact, I think our little Dumbo elephant was wilder than some of the roller coasters at Disney.

My layout~

IMG_8191

I wanted to match the colors of our Dumbo and the colors in the picture, so I pulled out my October Afternoon Midway collection and got busy.

A close-up~

IMG_8192

Since I’m adding a new line of papers to my Disney album I kept many of the design elements the same.

I continued using the repeating Mickey heads, enamel dots and some of the same alphas.

Now would you like to guess WHO is actually flying this elephant?

There might be a treat for the first person to guess correctly.

I Am A Princess~

Well….maybe I’m not, but Hartly sure is.

While planning our Disney 2014 trip she repeatedly told us that Rapunzel was the princess she most wanted to meet.

I believe her exact words were she just had to see her!

So, I made sure to get Fast Passes to do just that.

My layouts~

Rapunzal

I-am-a-princess

There was much talk of long blonde hair, frying pans and even talk of a Snuggly Duckling outing.

A few close-ups~

Rapunzal-Close I-am-a-princess-close

These are the first pages I’ve made in a long, long time.

I’m talking months!!

I feel like they’re missing something or that I just quite haven’t gotten my groove back.

Guess that means I need to get busy making more layouts, right?

Just One More Ride~

It’s been a while since I posted this layout or any layout for that matter.

IMG_6837

Travis was fooling around while the kids rode Cinderella’s Magical Carousel.

For the umpteenth time.

My layout~

One-More-Ride

Ashlyn and Hartly could ride this all day long.

A close-up~

One-More-Ride-Close-2

Actually I think they’ve tried.

Many, many times.

Put Some Oomph In it~

Would you believe me if I told you I made this layout way back in February at the Doodles Retreat?

All but the finishing touches.

It’s just been sitting waiting for me to blog about it and add it to my Disney 2014 album.

Since I’ve been spending the month of June coloring, I haven’t had time to even think of starting a layout.

So, this is the next best thing.

Right?

My layout~

IMG_6837

My Prince Charming is trying to pull the sword out of the stone while the kids all ride the carousel at Disney World.

Isn’t he handsome?

Which is good since he wasn’t quite strong enough to get that sword out and become the ruler of England.

A few close-ups~

IMG_6838

I used Simple Stories Say Cheese I and II Collections to make my layout.

Now I’m hoping to find a moment or two to work on a layout.

Hopefully, I’ll have better luck than Travis did.

He he.

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.

A close-up~

Not A Happy Girl Close

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~

april page sketch 2015

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.

A few close-ups~

123 & Here We Go Close 2

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~

Start Close 2

Start Close 1

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!
