Here's a very colourful layout about a fun ride Grace and I went on at Disneyland's Adventureland. I wanted to capture our experience and how we got through the ride together. Here's a quick overview video.
You can click on any of the pictures to make them larger, so if you are interested in reading the journaling, you might want to click on this one...
Here's another Disney page I want to share with you. I was inspired by Paige Evans layout on 2 Peas and wanted to try cutting out the same wave pattern. From there I took the rest of the layout in a different direction. I wanted to use a rainbow pallette of colours and I decided to put my pictures in a strip along the side. The title is a Project Life card from MAMBI. In this video I will give you an overview and more details.
I've been to Disneyland 3 weekends in a row now and I've taken over 1,100 pictures! My philosophy is snap, snap, snap in hopes that I can capture a few really good pictures. I have done just that and I plan to highlight them in some layouts where the pictures are printed bigger. But, in the meantime, I wanted to try this viewmaster layout. I had the cut file on my Silhouette Cameo and I've actually tried it out and cut some frames to use, but I never got around to creating with them. Then I came across this post on 2 Peas. It inspired me all over again to do something with a Viewmaster Reel theme. Especially Nancy Damiano's layout in that post. I've said it before and I'll say it again...Nancy is one of my all-time favourite scrapbookers. So I want to give credit where credit is due...her style speaks to me and I find her work so inspiring. I've done several layouts like hers. They are never exactly the same as hers, but I take bits and pieces and go from there. So both of these layouts are a combination of Nancy's work inspiring me and then I've mixed it in with my own style.
The thing about living in Southern California is that it really is a vacation paradise, but living here we tend to go about our day-to-day routines and forget what is just outside our door. The ocean and beaches are about 4 miles in one direction and Disneyland...a tourist destination where people can travel hundreds, if not thousands, of miles to get to, is only 12 miles from us. But the last time I was at Disneyland was close to 8 years ago.
I broke my non-Disney streak last Sunday, May 12th when I met up with Susan, Harry & the kids for a glorious, care-free, wish I was still 10 years old, type of day. They talked me in to getting a pass, so we met up again yesterday. This time we spent the day at the Disneyland California Adventure Park. I took lots of pictures both times and I really need to sort through them and post a few here on my (neglected) blog. But in the meantime, I did one layout from the first visit.
