Sharing a Disney layout as I am off to Disneyland

 We are on the way to Disneyland today for the 60th Birthday Opening and All Night Party.  We will be there for three days and I can't wait to get lots of pics of all the new things.  
So with Disney in mind I thought I would post a layout I did from our New Years trip.  
A friend had this awesome layout page and she cut one out for me for my firework pics.  
Here is the second page  of the Christmas trees we saw and decorations in New Orleans Square

I had time to complete one more layout before I get ready for my three day 
weekend to Disney with my family.  
I am so happy with the way this one came out.  
I used old Quick Quotes paper Julie Je"taime and I  love the vibrant colors. 
 I also love how you can often mix and match papers form different lines of Quick Quotes.  Plus I really like the way the flowers came out because of the cool paper.  
The flowers are called 3 D cone flowers on Silhouette America.  You cut two of each and then glue them in a cone and layer.  
The papers are inked in Quick Quotes Powder Puff Dark Purple Ink.  
The title is from a Joy to the World title from Silhouette
but I only used the Joy part to go with the quote.  
Here is a close up of the flowers.  
The pictures are of my granddaughters Katie 5 and Brittany 3 1/2.  
                                           I am linking this up to  Blog Quick Quotes -
                                                             Add a flower or a butterfly
                                        I added Silhouette flowers and punched butterflies.  
I am also entering at  Die Cuttin Divas- Water a Flower -
must include flower on project.  
and  Scrap Our Stash Sketch 26 with handmade flowers 
I used this sketch created by Guest Designer Lanette Erickson
The Quick Quotes paper had circles on it which reminded me of this sketch and then I added flowers and a quote from Quick Quotes for the journaling.  


My Boy

This was a fun sketch from My Scraps N More #105.  
I printed out 4 pics of my grandson Micah at Moms day at school.  
My daughter was out of state with hubbies graduation so I got to go.  
I made 2 x 3 pics with my Photomate printer.  
That way I could use the photo space but get four photos on it.  
I cut out arrows and the title My Boy from Silhouette America.  
The heart border is a Martha Stewart punch.  
I like the tags under the picture spot for journaling.  
Here is the sketch.  

Mommy''s Boy Insta Love

This month at Sketch N Scrap they have been having daily challenges for their Third Birthday.  
This is Heather's Challenge for 
Sketch n Scrap Use 3 pictures May 18
These are two older pics with mommy in his carrier and then a recent one
 in the center of him sitting on her shoulders. 
The title Mommy's Boy is sfrom Silhouette America.  I love the Chevron paper and cut some scraps to add to the phrase People we Love.....
Here is the sketch Heather provided.  

Sunshine for mommy

The minute I saw this sketch at Sketch n Scrap #80 it just made me feel happy and sunny. 
So when I searched through my paper I found this really cute paper with these oh so cute sons on it.  
I also had some yellow doilies I bought recently at Michaels and a Project life card that said Sunshine on it.  The flowers were from mys tash.  
The arrows I cut out with my Silhouette.  
The pictures are my grandkids Kenzie and Micah giving mommy the presents they made at school for Mother's Day.  She was gone at hubby's graduation so they were so excited to give her the presents when she got home.  

Here is the awesome sketch. from Sketch n Scrap #80
For the second page I used the same paper, doilies and flowers.  I printed out 2 x 3 pictures of Spa day with my granddaughter.  I was the lucky one who got to go in place of mom.  We had food, a hand massage, got my toes painted and presents.  It was so fun and I was so lucky to be a part of this.

Funny Snap shots done with an app

I fell in love with this sketch from My Scraps N More  #106  the minute I saw it.  I knew exactly what paper and pictures I wanted to use.  
The paper is Bella Blvd and I bought a bunch of it last Summer on a Shop Hop.  This was the perfect layout sketch for the paper.  
The pictures are some my daughters made on an app on their phones 
called You Cam Makeup-Makeover Studio.  
 You can change the hair and makeup, etc.  It's a lot of fun.  I printed 2 x 3 pics with my Picturemate Printer and they were the perfect size for the page.  
Left to right- Are grandaughters Brittany and Kenzie with light colored long hair.  They have long dark hair.  
My daughter in the middle as Maleficent, Elsa and Anna.  
Then on the right is grandaughter Kenzie as mini Elsa, curly haired girl and me with a new hair do.  
I cut out the filmstrips from Silhouette America and the rest is from the paper.  
Here is the awesome sketch from My Scraps N More  #106 
I am also entering this at Use Your Stuff Challenge #184
which is to use Chevrons.  That wasn't hard to do as I love Chevrons and buy paper with Chevrons alot so have lots in my stash.
