Meeting Olaf - Simple Stories

Do you want to build a snowman?

When I saw the sticker with this saying in the Cozy Christmas collection I had to create a layout about meeting Olaf at Disney on my birthday (in May).  Yep, I used Christmas papers for a summer picture, but it works!

Lots of fussy cutting, again some Sn@p cards and cuts, a few sprinkles and you have a fun layout to document an awesome memory!  See more close-ups on the Simple Stories blog!

Dec 25 - Simple Stories

Today I have a Christmas layout to share with you!  Yep, I know, it isn't time yet, but Simple Stories just released a new collection called Cozy Christmas and so I finally started scrapping last year's Christmas.

This page came together very quickly with the use of the Sn@p! collection of products; I love these items because they are great for added layers and fun cut designs.

You can see more details of this layout on the Simple Stories blog.

Live it Up - My Mind's Eye and My Scrapbook Kit

I got to go on airboat this past January.  It was so fun, and such an adventure!  It started with where you pay to take the ride, it was in a bar.  Well I have never been in a bar and needless to say I had a bunch of guys surrounding me within seconds, I got right beside my poor brother-in-law after that I stayed right there until we got out of that building!

The ride was super fast and all over due to the wind.  And did you know alligators can jump, and jump really high?  I sure didn't, but once they told me I made sure I moved away from the edge of the boat!

Thanks Uncle Mario for the awesome adventure!

I started with this piece of chipboard to go with my pictures.  And of course everything needs flowers because it was still a girl page about me.

Don't you just love the sign and lock!  Like that was going to keep me safe.

If you look close in the gold circle I somewhat managed to capture a picture of one gator.

My hubby actually stayed home with the kids as there was no way I was going to let them go.

Enjoy the Journey - My Mind's Eye and My Creative Scrapbook

I had the pleasure of guesting with My Creative Scrapbook again this month.  I was delighted when I opened my box and found My Mind's Eye Mint Julep!

Here's the first layout I created and a step-by-step on how I created it.

This is how I started the layout, my basic structure.  The script words and the color of the page just seemed to fit these pictures.

Here are the next pieces I added in, again fussy cutting from the script paper.

And then some final details of the page...
