Magic Kingdom-Disney World

This is an overview of the Magic Kingdom. Love this place. Love this layout. I had to make the spool myself because it said on my spool. After I made it  and wrapped it in twine...and then went in search for a needle cut...then voila... a spool. I was soooo mad. I didn't mention that to make the spool I welded shapes from the George cart...went well. For some reason my Gypsy wouldn't cut the did this crazy zig zag half way through the cut. I had to old school just glue the shapes together...that's why I was extra mad re:the spool. All the products for this layout were purchased at DAT'S-my fav local scrapbooking I noticed some of my bling fell off on the left border. I was too lazy to retake the pic after fixing the bling. Also kinda too mad.To get this layout straight I had to rip off stuff twice. Not one of my easier layouts. Thanks for looking...Lee-Ann :)

Typhoon Lagoon-Shark Reef layout

This one is from Typhoon lagoon. We usually do the Shark Reef swim...I decided to scrap it. I actually didn't do the swim this year...a couple of years ago I got a leaky mask...then almost panicked. I haven't done it since. I know...pathetic eh? Anyways...I think this one came out well. I again bought a cart just for a layout-Pack your bags. I used the shark from the cart Birthday Bash...and didn't cut out the number. I used the cart Pooh's Font and cut out 2 signs and Cuttlebug embossed it with the distressed stripes folder and inked it. I stamped the eyes on using a Peachy Keen stampset. I also used my Gypsy to remove the eyecuts from the shark and to make sure the signs were the right size for the shark to hold. Thanks for looking...Lee-Ann :)

Everest-Animal Kingdom layout

Another trip family trip in August is fast approaching and I have to hurry up and finish last years trip. This layout is of the ride Everest in Animal Kingdom-Disney World. I actually bought the cart-Campin' Critters just for the Saskwatch cut...I thought with some colour changes it could easily be the Yeti from the ride. I think this one turned out well. this ride also happens to be my fav ride at that park. Usually we get the family pic on the ride...but my son decided to raise his arms and blocked me. Then afterward my hubby was feeling punky so he didn't join us in another ride. I didn't want to get the pic without my hubby in it. ARG! It's so funny...he was such a scaredy cat as a little kid. The Snow White ride just about did him in. Now as a teen he's not holding on while riding roller coasters.?? Who knew? Thanks for looking...Lee-Ann :)
