2012 Artisan Award Winning Blog Hop - Project 7


Day 7 ... here we are!!! What a crazy week!! Welcome back!! (or welcome aboard??) Didn't you LOVE what Sarah Sagert posted today??? So thrilled to be on a team with so much talent!!

Today's scrapbook layout was, by far, my favorite. And it seems pretty appropriate considering that by the time y'all are reading this I will be walking around Disneyland (is it weird to say that I am looking forward to the FOOD as much as anything???). Too-TOOO fun!! My son is such a funny guy ... I asked him to stand next to this picture of Goofy so I could take a picture of HIM (because Goofy has always been his favorite!), and he just automatically struck the same pose as Goofy ... it STILL makes me happy every time I look at it.

I made a discovery about doing "banners" on layouts (or cards, for that matter) while creating this. I sewed all the little banner bits (circles) together before placing them on the page. This made it SOOOOOO much easier to lay everything out!! Not only was feeding the little circles through the sewing machine a SNAP (worked WAY more smoothly that I thought it would), but laying them out on the page was ALSO a breeze ... they weren't wandering all over the place, the sewing created a more natural curve, and they were much easier to adjust when I was ready to stick 'em down!! I really had a LOT of fun creating this one!!

And here is a close-up of the little half-rosette that I made to accent the "filmstrip" of photos I created ... like I said, I had WAAYYY too much fun creating this layout!

Smiley from millan.netAnd I have a few elements from MDS on here as well ... the oval behind the text, the ticket border and the filmstrip border were ALL created with it ... loveloveLOVE the things I am able to create in MDS to add to my projects! The whole "hybrid" thing has opened up a LOT of creativity for me!!
