check in

This is for a challenge to use a disney photo that isn't a ride or attraction, use cameras or film on the layout, and try to use older photos. Well I certainly have a bunch of photos like that so I picked one that is special to me. Its one of the few photos of me and daddy. He hated to be in photos but my husband snapped this one when we were checking in to our resort and it was the first time we had stayed on property - also known as the end of staying off property. LOL! You can never go back. Its special because even though its a terrible photo, I can see how excited he was, so I love it. (* and yes...that is me and I am wearing the uber trendy winnie the pooh overalls! HA HA! but I guess I was stylin because the woman behind me is wearing the same sort of thing)


I used the Maggie Holmes collection from Crate paper and some of the die cuts too. I cut cameras from the paper because they are so darn cute. I cut a few stars from the background paper, put patterned paper behind, and then layered stars cut from vellum on top. I am on a bit of a vellum kick, and I think I am liking gold too, which is odd because I am more of a silver person myself.  I journaled in pencil. I really like doing that because I don't think the journaling should be in your face really. Its just for me, anyway.
