Just One More Ride~

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

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.

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~

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.

Happy Father’s Day!!

This little guy just makes me smile.

Meet Milton from Stampingbella.

My card~

Favorite

I colored him for Day 19 of the 30 Day Color Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker.

30 Day Color Challenge 2

For whatever reason I thought he’d be perfect for my Father’s Day card for my Dad.

A close-up~

Favorite-Close

Especially when paired with my sentiment.

The inside~

Favorite-Inside

Funny, right?

At least I think so.

My sister, Amy, might not agree.

I saw the phrase somewhere online Friday.

I think it might have even been a stamp, but I can’t remember where I saw it or even find it now.

So, I simply used Photoshop and my printer to create my version of it.

Underneath Milton is a printed paper from Simple Stories I Am collection which lists many of the qualities that I think my Dad instilled in me.

That makes my card a little sweet and a lot sassy.

Just like me.

I used~

Stampingbella Milton, Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles, Copics, Signo White Pen, Fancy Pants Down By The Sea 6×6 Paper Pad, Simple Stories I Am 6×6 Paper Pad

One Fish, Two Fish, Three Fish~

Okay, I’ve lost count.

There are just too many fish on my Some Odd Girl Community Crop H2O Challenge: Use water color pencils, critters that live on/in the water, rain drops, or anything that makes you think H2o on your project.

My card~

One Fish Two Fish

Luckily this adorable little guy was on one of the three Some Odd Girl stamp set that I own.

So, I stamped him repeatedly and got busy coloring him to create my little H2O scene.

A close-up~

Fishy-Fishy-Close-Up

I used small flat sequins from Papertrey Ink to mimic bubbles and I gave each fish a bit of sparkle with a Wink Of Stella pen.

There’s still a bit of time left to join in the fun and I’m hoping to get one more project done.

30 Day Some Odd Girl

Let’s just hope we don’t have a repeat of last night where a massive amount of H2O falling from the sky knocked our power out. Yikes!

I used~

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~

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~

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~

Hello Mouse 2014 Close 1

Hello Mouse 2014 Close 2

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~

Mouse House Side

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.

December Daily 2014: December 26th & The Finishing Touches~

Our final day of celebrating Christmas this year fell on the day after Christmas with us spending the morning with hubby’s family.

I love how all of the cousins are looking at the camera with the exception of the littlest.

That girl!

December 26th~

December Daily Dec 26 Left

Earlier in the week I had found this little iron on gem from Sara at Confetti Sunshine and knew it had to be included in my album.

My bag of coal~

December Daily Coal Bag

Not to mention I made several to give away. He he.

I simply used supplies I already had at home including left over Studio Calico fabric bags and Avery Dark Fabric Iron On paper.

I think they’d look better using the regular Iron On paper, but they’re still cute.

With our Christmas celebrations over and my mini album turning out to be not so mini I thought it was the perfect time to end this year’s album.

Especially with my desk looking like this~

December Daily Cover Mess

For my cover I used a Christmas image I believe was originally from a Jessica Sprague email from last year.

My cover~

December Daily Cover

I added a bow from one of our Christmas packages and a few sparkly chipboard hearts.

And with that I have packed up all the Christmas scrapbooking supplies for now and can actually see the top of my desk again.

What kind of mess should I make now? He he.

I used~

October Afternoon December Story Kit, Ali Edwards December Daily Kit, Pretty Little Studio For You Image, Heidi Swapp Christmas Paper Pad, Various October Afternoon Christmas Collections, Webster’s Pages, Simple Stories Snap Album & Page Protectors, Jingle Thickers, Papertrey Ink Twine, Jingle Bells, Wink Of Stella, Acetate, Enamel Dots, Sprinkles from the Papertrey Ink Make It Now Market Kit

I’ve tried to list most of my supplies, but if you have any questions please ask.

December Daily 2014: December 25th~

Christmas morning…

There’s nothing quite like it is there?

Especially with young children around.

The excitement level at my parent’s house on Christmas Day was barely contained.

And I loved every minute of it!

December 25th~

December Daily Dec 25 Left

So I decided to use a picture of all the cousins together making funny faces for this day.

December Daily Dec 25 Right

Since Santa seemed to think all of these children were on the Nice List and visited them, I included an image from Pinterest as well.

Both pages together~

December Daily Dec 25 Both

I can hardly believe how quickly December has gone by.

And I do believe someone in this house has already started the countdown to next Christmas.
