We went to Disneyland on March 1 which is not officially Spring, but signs of Spring were everywhere. Even the day had some showers and a ton of white, puffy clouds. But what stood out the most to me were all the gorgeous Pink Lapacho trees with their beautiful blossoms.
I always like to get a group picture before we all start going on the rides. We got a few great ones near the castle and it was just perfect because a Pink Lapacho tree is in the shot and I'm not sure we really tried to get it and, if we did, we didn't realize how pretty it would look. And, it definitely shows the beauty of Springtime at Disneyland. What I also love about these pictures is how magical the castle looks with the clouds all around. It almost looks like a castle floating in the sky among the clouds. Maybe Disneyland is the closest we get to Heaven on Earth!??
Definitely scrap worthy pictures. But I decided they were both similar and I only needed to scrap the one, but I printed the other one too because there was more of the tree in that one and I placed it behind the main picture.
Here's how it starts in Photoshop so that I can size my picture.
From there I print the pictures and get to work at my scrap table and finish with this...
I think the background paper is perfect for this shot and I didn't want to mess with it too much and cover it with other papers. I really wanted it to stand out. The paper is from Webster's Pages Beautiful Chic Collection.
Lately I've really been enjoying the trend of gold foil embellishments and I thought I'd like to create a title with some gold.
