More projects

My last pic of a Relay for Life page. I forgot to mention that on one of them you see some Mickey heads attached to the side of the page. Those are letters for them to have it say Disney 'Land' or 'World' depending on who won it and where they'd been/going. I found that 4.5" and 5" seemed to work best for the Disney characters.

Winter Layout: On this one is a layout for the Cricut Circle's online SWARM challenge. The theme is Christmas/Winter. I used my Cricut Imagine for everything on this one, papers and images. I used Enjoy the Seasons and Snow Angel. We had either a layout sketch to use or a card sketch. I opted to do a layout. I have some pictures of my girls playing in the snow that I had in mind when I created this.

Family is Everything: I just bought the Teresa Collins cartridge 'Sophisticated' and of course had to use it! The paper is from the DCWV Lemmon Stack. I LOVE the colors in this stack so much that I've bought two of them now. The flower is layers from the Mother's Bouquet cartridge. I think I'll frame it and put it in our one living room that has green walls.

Disney Relay For Life pages - Set 3

If anyone knows an easier way than multiple posts, I'd love to know! :)

Disney Layouts for Relay for Life - Set 2

Guess I can only upload so many at a time. :)

Disney Pages for Relay For Life Set 1

I'm not quite sure how I ended up doing this. I was at a school board meeting and chatting with a colleague I worked with last year. She's a fantastic para-educator in one of our elementary schools. Anyways, she helps to head up the Relay For Life for our side of the county. Big undertaking I think. The theme this year was 'Wish Upon a Cure' and I commented that would be cool to make some scrapbook layouts with disney characters. Next thing I know, I've said sure to making a bunch! No idea how much it may have brought in, but I did enjoy making the pages. I keep learning new things as I go with scrapbooking. I still thinking making cards is easier! Maybe it is the less room to have to figure out, I don't know.

More Projects

I like this one I think the best so far. I just like the castle in the background etc. Jasmine was my youngest (5 at the time) favorite princess when we went. For years it had been the Little Mermaid, but then she changed about a month before we went on our trip.

Catch up time

Ok, I set the blog as my home page and I'm still not updating it! lol. I've been busy creating this summer though. So, time to start posting pics of things I've done. I'll start with all my Disney Layouts. We went to Disneyland for the first time last summer. This will be my first ever scrapbook when it's finished. I'm happy with how the pages are so far. I got really thrilled when they made the Cricut Chirp. All of the images were created using my Imagine. I love this machine, even though I've had to return a few since the launch. I love having it spit out a mat with all my layers on it. I often do not do the black layer though in ink and just use black cardstock. The ink does smear and so when I use glue, my tip on the glue pen ends up black. The black also seems to really saturate the paper. I suppose I could try it on the more draft quality and may one of these days. :) The one that says 'The End' and 'Memories' are two of the layouts from a bunch of pages I made and donated to a Relay for Life team that they then put into an album for an auction. I'll post pics of those too .
