Scrap Your Story- Seriously!!!!!

Hello again!!!! I have some VERY exciting news to share with you guys today.  I have been chosen to be on the Design Team for Scrap Your Story:  An exciting new blog with weekly challenges and opportunities to win some fabulous prizes!!!! Be sure to stop by and check out all the lovely and talented Design Team members and show them some love!!!!! 

I also wanted to share with you a layout I completed this week for Sketch-N-Scrap's sketch # 27.  This one was really fun to work with :-) I also combined this challenge with Roulien's Counting Blessings Challenge over at Colorful Creations!  
Here is the sketch....

Since I already had my Disney photos out, I chose two more from the pack to complete this page.  Another photo of my youngest daughter on daddy's shoulders, and my oldest having the time of her life on the Flying Carpet ride!!!!!
I rotated the sketch a quarter turn counter-clockwise and this is what I came up with... 

I recently purchased the Neapolitan Paper Pad by American Crafts and just couldn't wait to use it!!!! Everything about it is just adorable!!!!  All the embellies are by American Crafts, including the cute little jar of hearts on the right side!!! I made a pinwheel with some paper and vellum and had it coming out the top :-)
For the balloons, I used my 1.5inch circle punch and cut three different pattern papers, inked the edges, and added some hemp cord for the "strings".  I did some paper scrunching on the bottom, and again did my journaling using my computer and coordinating paper.  
Here's a close-up of the paper scrunching... I actually added brown polka-dotted vellum to the top of the green paper and inked the back using various distress inks so it wouldn't be white.  

Well gang, as usual... Thanks soooo much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)


  1. Howdy! This post couldn't be written any better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I'll send this post to
    him. Fairly certain he's going to have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
