Disney's Animal Kingdom pages

My family and I took our first trip to Disney World in 2005. We loved it so much that we decided to go again in 2006 and in 2008. That means I have a combined total of over 1000 photos that need to be scrapbooked! I am so sad to say that I am just now getting around to scrapping the photos from my FIRST trip.

To make this a little bit easier on me, I decided to mass produce pages and then go back and personalize them with photos, embellishments, titles and journaling. I knew that I wanted to use the Expedition paper pack from Close to my Heart for my Animal Kingdom photos. I followed a template that I received from a talented CTMH consultant that took 1 level 2 paper pack and extra cs for bases and made 11 two page LO's from the ctmh Imagine book.

Here are a couple of the pages that I have completed so far.

All supplies are Close to my Heart:

Stamps: Rustic Alphabet

Paper: Expedition

Sticker embellishments: Expedition Stickease

Ribbon: Autumn Terracotta Ribbon Rounds

Buttons: Autum Terracotta My Accents

Autumn Harvest Brads: Autumn Terracotta, Olive and Sunflower

LO: Proof Preview in Imagine

I know that there are many out there who are able to whip out scrapbook pages with out any inspiration or help. I am NOT one of those people! That is why I LOVE all of CTMH's scrapbook programs: Imagine, Cherish and Reflections. As I post my scrapbook pages, I will let you know which CTMH book the LO came from.

Thanks for stopping by........

I have finally entered into the blogging world!

This is my attempt at entering into the blogging world! This is all quite new to me, being on this end of the blog, so please bear with me as I try to figure all of this out!

My goal for this blog is to share my scrapbook pages and cards as I create them. I am often inspired by fellow scrapbookers and card makers and would love to be able to in turn inspire someone else! This craft is always evolving into bigger and better things and I love to learn new techniques as they come up! So, as I learn new things, I will pass them on to you and hopefully you will pass them on to someone else.

I made this card the other day using a sketch from the Splitcoast Stampers sketch challenge, sc203. I thought it was a pretty sweet sketch and knew that I needed to give it a try.
All supplies that were used to make this card are Close to my Heart (ctmh). The paper is from the Perfect Day Level 2 paper pack. The adorable turtle is from the stamp set Fun Times and the flowers are from the stamp set Dream Big. I used Cocoa CS and ribbon and the brads are Sorbet. I used Prisma Glitter for the dots on the inside of the flowers and the turtles spots. The turtle's eye is a bitty sparkle from ctmh's sparkles.
Thanks for visiting.....I hope you check back often!
Happy scrappin!
