Lasting Memories new challenge- Mixed Media with a BOLD title

Wow I totally flaked on getting my post up for the new Lasting Memories challenge today.  
That should have told me that it was going to be one of those days when I didn't get much done.  
I seemed to work in slow motion all day.  
Anyway on to the new challenge at Lasting Memories.  We are starting the September challenges with the Mixed Media with a Bold title.  
For my page I used some mixed media paper I got in a package from Canvas Corp at Tuesday Morning.  I love the alligator embossed paper and the wrinkled ink paper.  For the title I used Tim Holtz Grunge board letters of different fonts and inked with Quick Quotes Powder Puff Ink.  
The flower border is a Martha Stewart punch.  
Pictures are of two of my granddaughters Katie and Brittany having so much fun on a tire swing.  
Please check out the other layouts that the Design team created to inspire you.  I hope you will join us for the challenges this month.  You have all month to link up the challenges which are revealed each Sunday at Lasting Memories.   We would love to see your creations.

By train or by trolly

My grandson loves to ride the trolly at California Adventura and the trains at Disneyland.  
I used Simple Stories Say Cheese for these pages.  

The first page is our first ride on the trolly.  One of the CM's gave us a red car trolley ticket which he was thrilled with.  I love the picture of us all looking out the window.  
This is the Casey Jones train.  I cut the train and track from Silhouette America.  The title I made using the Walt font.  Notice in the right corner my daughter, another lady and I were all wearing our new Vans Disney tennies so we had to get a pic of them- Villans, Princesses and Mermaid.

"Back to school" board

School is back in session and I made both of my daughters a Back to School board using black canvases.  We used black paper to write the answers so it can be used again and again.  
Here is the board.  
My oldest granddaughter Katie who is 5 and going to Kindergarten.  
Her sister Brittany who is 4 and in Preschool.  
Next is Kenzie  who is 4 and in Transitional K.  
And her brother Micah who is 2 and in Preschool.  
Of course he thought it was fun to spin the board around while I was trying to 
take photos.

Single page fun layouts

I usually do double page layout but for these pictures I did single pages.  
The first is a collage of pictures with granddaughter Kenzie who is 4.  
These are some fun pics of Kenzie and brother Micah 2 sleeping.  
The title Naps and fix everything is from Silhouette America.  

And when they are no sleeping they are my precious monkeys  
I used some 3 D stickers from my stash.

Going to a crop to scrap my Disney side

I love attending crops at my local scrapbook store.  I also teach classes there.  I have a locker so I decided to make it easy I would keep my extra Silhouette and all my Disney paper, etc in there.  That way all I have to do is grab my pictures and a few little things and off I go to crop.  It really helps me keep focused too when I am scrapping one theme.  
For this page I used the Mouse Treats title and Mickey layered ice cream from PPBN Designs 
A quick page with embellishments from my stash.  

These are pics of my granddaughter and oldest daughter when we went to see Cinderella.  
The paper is Princess from Simple Stories.  

More Simple Stories paper but this time it's Say Cheese

Disney, Disney and more Disney

Worked a lot of Disney layouts this past month to catch up with all our trips.  This first one is from my birthday trip in March and I used Say Cheese by Simple Stories.  
This is paper from my stash.  The sorcerer Mickey is from PPBN Designs and the castle from Silhouette America.  The pics are of grandchildren Kenzie and Micah opening the local Disney store.  They love doing this  

The last page is pics of Micah with Duffy the bear dressed as Yoda and some pics of us on rides.  
This is also Say Cheese II from Simple Stories.
