Fun in Orlando!

Good morning everyone! Well, I'm through with the scrapping event and on my last day at Disney. We had a blast scrapping. Below is a picture of my sweet girlfriends and we're wearing some of the Mickey tie dye shirts I made for us.

I do have to say that it is hot, hot, hot here in Orlando! Here are some fun sights from Disney World!

Here is a view from our balcony at the Boardwalk Villas!

I'll leave you with a picture of our "find of the trip" for the MNSSHP. We were waiting for our table at 'Ohana's and found this wonderfully scary hair!

I hope you have a wonderful week and I hope you enjoy these pictures!

Welcome to Mini-Monday!  Keystone Scraps is pleased to release the 4th and final mini-kit in the Friends Until Forever collection!  This particular mini was given away as a prize at Mousescrappers a while back, so some of you lucky scrappers will already have it in your stash!


Whimsical and fun with a bright and happy color palette, this mini kit is a great addition to your scrapping stash to show off your photos of everyone's favorite fluffy bear, summertime memories, or that little honey bee of your own!

Check Out what I made with it! I used this delightfully fun kit with Cindy's Layered Templates #104 by Cindy Schneider and Aloha styles by Just So Scrappy.

I'm in Orlando Scrapping with my Girlfriends!

I am now in Orlando at the annual SDV I attend in Orlando with my girlfriends. So much of the fun is making "goodies" for the ladies. Here are some pictures of what I've been working on.

I also made some mini albums for the girls. For my three Florida BFF's I made these...

They named themselves the Scrap-ateers.

I then made a mini album for my sweet Texas BFF's. Jackie, Wren and I all went to high school together and then we adopted the youngster, Robyn, and brought her along on our fun trips .. sure glad we did!

Here is a picture of all the goodies ... minus the Mickey tie-dye t-shirts I made for everyone. Those will be posted later. I'm off to have more fun! Thanks for dropping by. :)

MouseScrappers First Collab Kit to Benefit Give Kids the World! is thrilled to bring you a first... a collab kit that will benefit a very special place: Give Kids the World.

Give Kids The World Village (GKTW) is a 70-acre, nonprofit "storybook" resort, located near Central Florida's most beloved attractions, where children with life-threatening illnesses and their families are treated to week long, cost-free fantasy vacations. Their mission is to fulfill wishes of children as long as there is need - and to never turn a child away. GKTW works very closely with organizations like the Make-A-Wish Foundation to fulfill these wishes. Make-A-Wish qualifies the families and provides transportation to the Orlando area, and GKTW provides a week of accommodations, food and theme park tickets - all at no cost to the families. It is almost entirely staffed by friendly, loving volunteers (or "Angels", as they are called) who greet everyone with a warm smile. The facilities around the resort were designed with special needs in mind (e.g. a carousel that accommodates wheel chairs)... and pretty much all 'typical' household rules are thrown out the window. If a child wants ice cream for breakfast, they can have it! Anything to help them forget about doctor visits, hospitals, therapy, etc - if only for a week. Give Kids the World relies on donations - so MouseScrappers is proud to be able to do our part to help. 100% of the revenue generated from the sale of this kit will be donated to Give Kids the World. For more information on this wonderful place, please visit their website here.

MouseScrappers new kit, Wishes, Happiness and Hope, was inspired by the color and whimsy of this resort. It is jam-packed with 72 papers, a detailed template, 3 alphas, and over 200 elements!

Designs were graciously donated by:

A Grieving Mommy
Cindy Schneider
Crossbone Cuts Designs
Kellybell Designs
Keystone Scraps
Krisi's Kreations
Leslie Bodoh Designs
Miss Kim Designs
Mud Creek Designs
Natalie's Place Designs
Neverland Scraps
Wyld Peas Designs

Here are some samples to show you the versatility of this kit, and to give you inspiration!






Please help MouseScrappers support Give Kids the World by picking up one of these kits today. You can find it in the MouseScrappers Shop, or by clicking here.

To help MouseScrappers celebrate the release of this fantastic kit, some of MouseScrappers own 'VoluntEars' created some freebies just for you! Please see each of the blogs below for more information:

We Will Never Forget ...

No one will forget the horrific events that transpired on September 11, 2001. It is one of those poignant moments in history that you remember exactly where you were when it happened, when you heard, and remember how you felt. Today we are releasing a mini freebie kit to honor those who lost their lives that tragic day in history ten years ago. To the families left behind ... the children who will never understand the heroic things some of their loved ones did on that day .... we hope on this 10th anniversary of these attacks you feel some sense of closure and most of all peace.

Today we stand .. ONE NATION ... strong . . .
