Magic Monday...Disney Food Edition

Our favorite quick service restaurant at Disney World on our last trip was Flame Tree BBQ at Animal Kingdom, hands down. My mouth waters just thinking about the smoky smell drifting through the park! So, when I saw this challenge over at Disneyscrappers, I knew what I needed to scrap about:

Challenge #7 from the International Scrapbook Day crop, "Food, Glorious Food"We all know there is amazing dining opportunities in the Disney Parks! So this challenge is about getting you to scrap your food and restaurant photos.

Here is my Flame Tree bbq layout:

Once again, I used my April CKC kit (It was a big kit, I will be using it for a little while still!). I was happy to finally get that bird embellie on a page-I have had it since I received it in a 2Peas swap a few years ago, and loved it, put it in numerous kits, but never found quite the right page for it until now. I am happy to finally have it in my album!

A closer look:

Thanks for visiting my blog today, be sure to come back next Monday for a new edition of Magic Monday...I believe we will visit Hollywood Studios for a Star Wars Weekend layout! See ya real soon!

Magic Monday... Celebrate the Magic

For today's edition of Magic Monday, I took the challenge from Disneyscrappers
Night Magic Challenge 
Nothing is as beautiful at night as a Disney Park, it just twinkles and sparkles all around you.
The lighting around the parks, the parades, and the spectacular shows. I know you have many many night time photos that you want to scrap, but it can be intimidating.
For this challenge create a layout using photos taken at night in a Disney Park or Resort.
You must add something that sparkles
And also use these 3 night time Disney colors:
PinkYellow/Gold, and Blue/Teal
This challenge was the perfect inspiration to scrap this photo from the "Celebrate The Magic" castle show the last time we were at the Magic Kingdom. I used supplies from my April CKC kit, "Secret Garden." I made the journaling card in my Project Life app, and printed it at home. The glittery blue snowflakes were the only thing that were not in the kit, but I felt that this would be the perfect opportunity to use up the package and give a little nod to Frozen.

Magic Monday...July 4th Edition

Good morning! Happy Independence Day!

As you may have noticed if you are a long time follower, my blogging has been a bit on the few and far between side of things lately. So, I have decided to jazz it up a bit with at least one new blog series that will (hopefully) keep me blogging on a bit of a more regular basis. I have another Disney trip planned for this fall, and still several pages that I want to make about my last trip, so the two don't get jumbled in my my mind. I also have a few crafty projects and ideas that I want to make for our upcoming trip, so I think that this will be the perfect place to share these pages and projects, and keep me motivated to finish them. So, without further ado, welcome to the new "Magic Monday" series.
For this page, I was inspired by a couple of challenges over at the Disney Scrappers site. There were several challenges that I have been meaning to play along with from the International Scrapbook Day crop, and I finally got a chance. The first challenge was to be inspired by a Disney color palette. I have had Alice in Wonderland on the brain lately, since I am participating in an Alice themed swap, so I knew I wanted to do a page from our ride on the Tea Cups ride in Magic Kingdom.

Here is the color palette that I chose, sort of a softer take on the Alice In Wonderland colors:
I still had quite a bit of stash from my April "Secret Garden" Counterfeit kit, and I knew that I wanted to incorporate florals into this page because of the topiaries-and that a tea party needs flowers-so, this kit was perfect for this page.

Disney Scrappers had a border punch challenge for June, and I had a border punch in my Secret Garden kit, so I incorporated that into my page as well.

A glimpse into the details of this page:

So, there you have it. A little "Disney Magic" for your Monday! What do you think? I would love to have you stop by next Monday for the next installment of Magic Monday!If this post inspires you to scrap some of your own Disney memories, I would love to see-link me up!

Master Forger's INSD Challenges: All Sixes and Sixes

Hi! Margie here!

I am sharing one of my favorite scrapbook supplies, 6x6 paper pads!

(disclaimer: this is only a very small portion of the 6x6 pads I own!)

There are lots of fun ways to use 6x6 paper pads! I like to use them with punches:

I like to use them in a grid for a background:

They work very well for layering pieces; for this layout, I cut bits, some from scraps, some from 6x6 pads to layer behind the frames:

I hope this inspires you to pull out your 6x6 paper pads and give them a try!

May Counterfeit Kit Challenge Kit

Good afternoon! After a very busy week this past week that ended up running much later into the night last night than anticipated, I am happy to have a few moments to finally be able to post my kit for May! This month, we were given this lovely kit to be inspired by:

Quirky Kits

I was inspired by the colors and patterns of this kit. Here is the kit that I was able to pull together from my stash:


The whole kit:

The pinks and teals are some of my favorite colors to scrap with, and I am hoping that life will slow down a bit so that I can put my April and May kits to use soon. When I do, I will be sure to share it here! 
In case you missed it earlier, here  is the list for the CKCB design team, and their awesome kits:

Counterfeit Kit Challenge for May*Technical Difficulties*

Due to responsibilities that ran much longer than expected this week, my Counterfeit Kit for May will be delayed...hopefully I will be able to get it up later today, and I would love for you to check back. But until then, here's the hop order for the rest of the team and their awesome kits:

So sorry! I will link it up at the CKC blog when I get the post up.

Making the Most of Your Memorabilia and Ephemera

Today's challenge at the Counterfeit Kit challenge blog is:" Ephemera Encapsulated"

Choose a little bit of everyday life to incorporate into a project this month. Use it on a layout, in a mini-book or add it to an off the page project!

For this challenge, I chose to use a piece of artwork that my son had made for me in school a few years ago. I had a photo from that Halloween that I had not scrapped, either. I was really quite excited to find this sweet little drawing/picture that my son had made in 2009. It's so funny to me, since he wanted to "be George Strait" for Halloween, and now he won't even listen to country music. Just a sweet capture of that moment in our lives. I love it!

Be sure to link up with the Counterfeit Kit challenge (link in my sidebar) and show us how you incorporate memorabilia and ephemera!
