Enjoy Every Moment

It's been a very busy past several months! Between my travels, work, and the holidays, I haven't had a chance to get this blog updated. Thankfully I have made time to get some scrapping done so I have several projects to share over the next few days. 

This was a very quick one using my Scraptastic Club November 2015 Feels Like Home Kit. And a sweet photo of an afternoon at Epcot with some of my co-workers after a long conference week in the Orlando area. Sometimes you just have to go black and white with a photo when the colors in it are an overwhelming mix. 

One of my embellishments is from my Food & Wine gift card. It was the 20th anniversary of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival so I wanted to make sure to note that milestone in my layout and it truly could not have matched this kit any better!

Gettin' Cozy at the Cone

This was my last layout using my August Scraptatic kit.  I had one piece of patterned paper left and I had been fighting with which side of it to use. Do you have that problem too??
I was flipping through my photo gallery trying to find a picture that would jump out and make it very obvious as to which side of the paper I should use.  And that's exactly what happened here.
Since I only had one full sheet left and a few scraps, I decided to try some inking and paint splotching to help with my background.  Cutting the full sheet into strips and stitching them into place made for just the right background.  A caution cone from the "Cars" Cricut cartridge, a sticker of Mater, a metal tire wrench charm (which I have NO idea where it came from!)  and some alphas from my stash and viola!

Bon Appetit

One of the tings included in my August Scraptastic Club kit was a packet of die cuts from Simple Stories "So Fancy" line.  When I poured them out on my table, the first thing I saw was the Eiffel Tower piece.  Then the little perfume bottles.  At that point it didn't matter what else was in that little packet.  It was time to pull out some photos from the France pavilion at Epcot!  
My challenge became my friend, Frank's orange shirt.  There was nothing orange in this kit and honestly, that's a good thing! I decided to solve the problem with tiny splashes of orange on my background paper. It brought everything together nicely.

Hello St Maarten

Ah, to be sailing through the Caribbean on a Disney ship. 
Now if that isn't bliss, I don't know what is!
I managed to get 3 layouts out of my August Scraptastic kit and I'm pretty proud of myself for it. I'm extra proud that the three layouts don't have alot in common so might not guess that they were all from the same kit.The important thing is that I had a great time creating this past weekend. Exactly what a girl needs when the weather isn't so great and you wish you had Caribbean breezes in your hair and the smell of suntan lotion on your skin.

Castaway Creek

So I know I said that I was done with Typhoon Lagoon photos.
I lied.  I found another!
And found more papers and embellishments from my stash to bring a new Castaway Creek photo to my scrapbook. I'm loving this stash-busting thing!
This is part of a Disney Scrappers scraplift challenge. We were to find a layout in the gallery that inspired us.  I selected the "Fabulous Minnie" layout by Nancy Burke. She's an incredible talent that I've admired for many years.

Scoops of Sunshine

I just can't get enough of Typhoon Lagoon! Yet sadly, I think this will be my last layout of this warm weather hangout. It's time to move on to other Disney Destinations. But I stash-busted this one too, I'm proud to say. Between old papers and leftover embellishments from the July Scraptastic Club kit, this one came together fairly easily. Don't you just love the little ice cream cones??

God Bless the USA

Not only was this layout created using my stash, it was from my stash of scraps!! I couldn't bear to part with these delicious red, white, and blue scraps and leftover embellishments. I knew one day I would use them again. And the funny thing is that I actually like this layout better than the one I first used these papers for!
