Back with a Little Disney Magic

Hello friends. My oh my! Its been a while since my last blog post; what a whirlwind these last few months have been. I have so much to catch up on! My family and I went to Disney World for Christmas. My husband and I went to Paris in February. My oldest played basketball for the first time this year. We are preparing our youngest to start kindergarten in the fall; some of you may know that he is autistic, so there is a lot to do to get him school ready.

I have so many layouts I want to share with you. Oh yes, amidst the craziness of my days, I still have some me time! But I'll start with one so I don't turn this blog post into a super long one!

Here is a layout I created with some pics from our trip to Disneyland in California last summer; I just love this little show. The music is so fun! The dancing is amazing, and Mickey's outfit is simply the cutest!
This layout was created with Scotty Girl Design's newest kit... Hollywood Magic! I just love the colors in this kit!
If you are a Disney fan (and who isn't?), you simply must stop by Scotty Girl Design's blog all month long; April is Month of Magic, and she has a new Disney theme release each week, and special Disney related blog posts! Check out the post HERE to look at her April schedule; it is loaded with all kinds of Disney goodness.

Until next time (I promise it won't be four months).

Lots of happy hugs,

Thankful


For my project, I made a card.
And a little close up of the cute little image.
I really enjoyed "coloring" her with digital pattern paper and card stock. I took full advantage of the Silhouette's print and cut feature; I also created the background, and used an element from the same kit. After I printed the background, I cut an oval out to make the frame. Then just used pop dots to piece them together.
It is so easy to make quite a few of these in just a matter of minutes. I plan to send these to all the wonderful people God has put in our life; family and friends who love us, support us, and most importantly pray for us when we need it the most. 

For my project I used Samantha's Orchard Harvest Mega Kit. The colors in this kit are so lovely, don't you think?

Scotty Girl Design is Featured Designer

Hi everyone. I am so excited to share my layouts with you today.
Before I do, I wanted to share that Scotty Girl Design is featured designer this week at Pixels and Company; 25% off everything in her store
Shannon has been super busy lately creating the most amazing kits, like the one below; she created it in  collaboration with Mye De Leon.
This kit could not have been released at a more perfect time. See, my little sister got married on Saturday, and I couldn't wait to create a layout... or two!
For this layout, I used Scotty Girl's Skyscraper Template kit.
Isn't she beautiful?
I also used Scotty Girl's Skinny Stitches: Patterns and Mists (to be released 7/18)
Template used is by ChrissyW.

For my next two layouts, I used Scotty Girl's big June release: Walt's Park. She created Walt's park to Coordinate with her first Disney themed release Started by a Mouse. And then... she created four mini kits; one for each land at Disneyland! The best thing about this whole collection, is that you don't have to use them for just Disney layouts; they are super versatile!
Disney was a big part of my sister's wedding; her new husband proposed to her at Magic Kingdom.
I created this layout with Walt's Park: Tomorrow Mini Kit.
Oh yes, the one in the third row is my super silly teenager; he discovered where the camera was, and made a crazy face every time he went by.

Stop by Scotty Girl's shop to snag up some awesomeness at 25% off!

Until next time.

Lots of happy hugs,

Family Fun

For my project, I wanted to create a page to remember the fun we had celebrating our oldest's 16th birthday. The awesome group of kids in this picture (and a couple of moms) helped me put together a surprise party for him. He knew family would be over for cupcakes, ice cream cake (which melted before we could get a picture, oops), and swimming in the pool, but he had no idea his friends would be over too! It was a great day, and I sure hope we have more of them before summer is over!
Family and friends is truly what its all about, isn't it?

For my layout, I used the newly released (in digital), Cool Summer Collection! I've had the chance to play with the physical papers and elements; it has been my summer "go to" collection. I just love that it is now available in digital at Jessica Sprague too! Endless fun!
