What a Wonderful Day!

Twenty-nine years ago I said "I do" to the man of my dreams! We honeymooned at Disney World, but didn't go back until 1995. We now try to go every year to celebrate our anniversary.

Happy 29th Anniversary Curt! I love you!! You've made my life magical ...

Weekly Challenge at MouseScrappers

It's been a busy time here, but I had time to participate in a Weekly Challenge at MouseScrappers hosted by Tanya. We were to make this layout with a kit we had never used before. I decided to use Cindy's Layered Templates - Set 98 by Cindy Schneider and a super cute kit called Hollywood by Britt-ish Designs. 

 This is one of my favorite streets in Hollywood Studios because it has some cute stores and ends with Rock-n-Roll Rollercoaster and Tower of Terror ... two of my favorite rides!!

Toes In The Water

Created using a soft ocean side color palette of pinks, purples, blues and yellow shades, this kit will be sure to please! 18 papers and over 50 elements...including some adorable little swimmers will be sure to compliment any summertime page! There's even a full alpha included!

Did you pick up the prize that Keystone supplied for Patty's (nadauh) weekly challenge at Mousescrappers last week?? If not... you can still get it! Post Dated has also been added to the store! Its a fun way to date all your pages! All the elements were created in blue.... but they are very easy to recolor and match your pages!

Template Challenge Layout

Just finished a layout for the Template Challenge by Jenn at MouseScrappers. This template had the punch outs too and was so much fun to work with. Here is my layout ...

This layout is from a wonderful trip I took in March of 2008 to see my sweet niece and her best friend perform at Universal with their performance choir. After that we stayed at Disney for a few days and toured the parks. It is a trip that I will never forget and always have magical memories of!

I used the template by Jenn's Creations for Template Challenge #67, Friends to the End Kit and WordArt by Kellybell Designs, and Basic Date Stash by Britt-ish Designs.

I'm Back ... Scraplift Challenge Layout

I've been away for a while and haven't been participating in the challenges at MouseScrappers for a bit. My dad was in the hospital and I have just now gotten back to my routine. Here is a layout I did for a Scraplift Challenge at MouseScrappers ... hosted by Britt. She had us go to a gallery of paper scrapping layouts and pick one to scraplift.

I saw one where it showed Top 10 Disney Favorites like Fantasyland, Monorail, Character Meals, 'Ohana's (definitely in my Top 10), etc. ... so I came up with My Top 10 Favorite Characters.

I used a variety of kits and alphas ...

Happy Place by Dream's Pieces,
Acorn Club Alpha & Just a Mutt Mini Kit Alpha by Natalie's Place Designs,
Build an Alpha-Pebbles & Yummy Letters-Primaries by Misty Cato
Mrs. Magic the Alpha by Leslie Bodoh,
Basic Black Alpha by Stolen Moments,
Mostly Magic Alphas by Band Geek Designs,
Mousterpiece Alpha by Britt-ish Designs,
Dream, Wish & Believe Alphas by Mandabean,
Pixie Dust Sampler, Easy Titles Vol. 1 Freebie, & That Covers It by Kellybell Designs. 

I told you there were alot!!! Thanks for dropping by!

Let's Walk Down Main Street ...

As you walk through the entrance into Magic Kingdom and stand in the middle of Town Square, you can't help but gasp at the beauty of Main Street as it leads your eye towards Cinderella's Castle. It just takes your breath away! Inspired by Walt Disney's childhood and Lady In The Tramp, Main Street's decor is early 20th-century small town America. You can browse up and down Main Street, stopping in the shops or grabbing a quick bite. Just the thought of standing in the middle of Main Street as you start your day at Magic Kingdom is enough to give you goosebumps!!

Here's something else that will give you goosebumps.... Kellybell Designs and Keystone Scraps have teamed up together to create TWO kits inspired by Main Street. Their Creative Teams have worked on layouts to showcase both kits! And the teams are offering a Word Art Blog Train! Can it get any better than that!! So grab yourself a cinnamon roll or croissant from the Main Street Bakery, have a seat in your cafe chair, and take a look at these beautiful kits. We proudly present to you...


These kits really capture the old fashioned elegance and tradition of Main Street. The color scheme of peach, green and cream blend well with all the quaint shops and eateries. Kellybell's kit features 10 papers and over 45 elements along with a full gold alpha. Keystone Scraps kit features 20 papers, a full scalloped alpha and over 70 elements. The kits are sold separately in Kellybell's Store and Keystone Scraps Store.

Both kits are on sale at 25% off thru Sunday night! So be sure to pick them both up!

Take a look at what I scrapped with these beautiful kits.

I used both kits for the above layout and I also used Coming Full Circle Template by Chelle's Creations.

I used both kits for the above layout ... I love scrapping with these kits and found myself singing "Walking Right Down the Middle of Main Street USA" the whole time.

 As a special bonus to you, both Creative Teams have gotten together to offer you a blog train full of word art. Make sure you stop by each member's blog to grab your goodies. In the end, you'll have a fabulous set of word art titles!! You should have arrived here from Donna's blog. Next stop will be Jo's blog. If you get lost along the way, the whole train is listed below... so just hop back on track! Enjoy the train ride and happy scrapping!!
