In Just One Week...

....I will be on an airplane off to sunny Florida and Disney! Yippee! I have tons to do before we go, so my posts may be a bit short and infrequent. Who knows? Maybe I'll get done quick and get to scrap before I go. I guess only time will tell.

If any of you guys have any suggestions on things "not to miss" while in Disney, please leave a comment here. I have not been there in almost 20 years, and I want to try to get as much in as possible. Let's make a RAK out of this. Post a Disney suggestion here before this Friday the 25th. I will then pick a winner for a fun scrapbooking goodie package. Cool!

So, I did get some scrapbooking time in yesterday. I used some fun Fancy Pants of my favorite companies!

I also used some acrylic paint for the title letters. I haven't used paint in ages! It was fun. I also used some Coasters from Imagination Project...I really miss that company. Good to have some stash when you need it, huh?

Well, off to start the day. Have a great one and thanks for stopping by!


  1. You are going to have a FANTASTIC trip! We go all the time so I'll give you a few pointers & email you the rest (if you don't mind)

    In the Magic Kingdom you've got to see The Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Magic Carpets of Aladdin (just like a dumbo ride), Pirates of the Caribbean, Space Mountain, Astro Orbiter, Tomorrowland Transit Authority (no lines & it's relaxing!), Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin (get a fast pass) , Stitch's Great Escape! (get a fast pass), Mickey's PhilharMagic (Great show get a fast pass), Dumbo & the Mad Tea Party-teacups.

  2. I haven't been to Disney in Florida so no suggestion here. LOVING the layout though and your excitement about LEAVING soon!

  3. Love this layout--the circles with the buttons--too cute!

    Don't miss Splash Mountain--great ride! and Fantasia light show at MGM studios! How exciting!

  4. That is sooo adorable, you make me miss scrapbooking! Love all the finishing touches.

  5. i love this page!
    We just went to Disney last sumer. I decided Wednesday to go and we went Saturday! Short notice:) Our favorite rides were fast track and rock and roll roller coaster. Must do. OH yea... and soaring!

  6. I love this layout! So Fresh and fun and I love the paint. a great touch without being too much. Beautiful! I'm no help on Disney, sorry.

  7. Gorgeous lo, love your home decor idea below and the Bewitching lo is amazing!!

    I hadn't been to Disney in 20 years until this May. We went for 2weeks and had a blast. Things to not miss: Mickey's Philharmagic (cool 3-d show), Splash Mountain, Thunder Railroad, depending on your kid's ages.. Tea Cups, and the classic kids rides. Buzz Lightyear ride was my ds's fav (he's 5).

    Epcot: Crash test, Mission Space (not for small kids), the flying one (can't recall the name), Nemo.

    Animal Kingdom: Mt. Everest, Safari ride, all the nature walks, the Dinosaur ride (can't recall the name), It's a bug's life show..

    Hollywood Studios: Rockin' Rollercoaster, Haunted Mansion.

    Tips: if you're staying on ground take advantage of the early entry. Get in and get fast passes. Fast passes save SO much time!! Go get a fast pass at the most popular rides first. (You can only get one fast pass per hour).

    If any of your kids are too small to ride take advantage of ride switch. Dh & I did for the big roller coasters and had NO wait for the 2nd person.

    I could go on and on, but e-mail if you have ANY questions. :0)

  8. Love the layout- especiallly the buttons inside the circles! Never been to Disney but have fun!

  9. Oh wow- your layout is amazing. I love the colors and shapes and the stitching- wonderufl!!!!

    Have fun at Disneyland :-)

  10. Your work always blows me away! Gorgeous layout! I love the little circle clusters of goodness!
    As for Disney, I've only been to California and it was YEARS ago. I just remember LOVIN' the teacups, Space Mountain and Splash Mountain.
    I hope you guys have an AWESOME time though!

  11. first of all - LOVE LOVE LOVE that layout!!!!

    i never been to Disney before so I dont have any suggestions to give - except for HAVE FUN! and take LOTS of pictures!!! :)

  12. LOVE the layout!
    Great colours!

    And have a great time at Disney...I've never been so no advice on what to do except HAVE FUN!!! :)

  13. What a stellar layout! I particularly love the circles with the buttons (is that felt?) and brads. Just such a neat look. You're so clever!

  14. LOVE that layout, Denine! So great seeing your work in person in the TI booth too. It's perfection. Missed you!!

    I'll think about what we do/did at Disney and send along an email with what I think of. You guys are going to have SO much fun.

  15. the enchanted tiki room, haunted mansion and pirates of the carribean r classics that can't be missed!!! what's great about all 3 is they r perfect attractions for all ages. have a great time.

  16. I so Love that layout!!! I love all of your work!

    Have fun at Disney!!! My favorites are the haunted mansion and pirates of the carribean those you can't be missed!!!

  17. I'm so jealous - I want to take the kids to Disney :-) It's been years since i've been, too, but I would definitely suggest making sure you go to Epcot! There's something for everyone there and it's a great learning experience for the kids, too :-) Have a GREAT time!! LOVE the layout!

  18. I am sorry I haven't been to Disney, but your layout is AWESOME! I have MANY of your layouts saved for inspiration! Have fun!

  19. My hubby and I JUST got back from Disney last week. We left our littles with family, so I don't have much advice for your kiddos. I will say to be sure to plan as much as you can and keep your eye on the time - it flies when you're there!!

    Have a blast :)

  20. You are going to have an awesome time. We went four years ago and they have added attractions since then. At M.K. I recommend Space Mountain. At MGM, Tower of Terror. I have the cutest pic of my 5 year old on that ride. At Animal Kingdom, Kilamjaro. I can't say that have a favorite at Epcot.

  21. love the layout!!!

    My suggestion for Disney... have fun!

    I haven't been in a while, but I believe they still have the FAST PASS. I think that is a great idea. You get your time for the ride and then you just need to come back for the scheduled time. You don't have to wait a long time in line anymore.
