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!


  1. Great idea to jump-start your blogging reset! Intrigued by how you made the Mickey in your title... ;)

    1. Thanks! They're foam letters that I altered a bit- I stretched the O and I cut apart an 8 and stretched it for the ears.

  2. I spotted this on Disney Scrappers - lovely soft Alice colours. I took my daughter on this ride when she was little, but when we went to WDW last year we skipped the ride and sat in the baking sun, waiting for Alice and the White Rabbit to return from their break. They were so charming, I forgave her for insisting on hanging around.

  3. Great way to get more regular blogging - something I need to try. I'm so disorganised! The glitter letters are gorgeous and the Mickey in the title is very creative! Sometimes I need to do more thinking outside the box!


Thank you for your comments, they make my day!
