Good morning all

Well as most of you know I have been in a slump lately with scrapping , but I think it is coming back I hope! Here is a layout I did for the stuck on u sketches challenge ... I thought to get me back in to scrapping I would start out with some sketches....

This is a layout of our visit to Epcot getting ready for another trip to Disney in May I can't wait...You know I LOVE DISNEY !!!!!

I thought the sketch was perfect for the ball in Epcot......

I used Cricut cart Mickey & Friend font for the title cut @ 2ins and pop dotted.

Cricut Mickey & Friends for the hands boarder cut @ 1 1/2 ins and pop dotted.

Sticker attached to white paper and cut out for the words at the bottom....

The Epcot ball was cut with George circle cut to fit 10 3/4ins and used my score pal for the lines.

Added some ribbon under the hands a very simple layout .

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day

Good Icy Tuesday morning

Woke up this morning to a beautiful coating of ICE on everything!

It really is beautiful with the sun on it ....gonna rain later that's right I said rain not snow (yeah)

I am so glad for a break from the cold and snow maybe it will start to melt.

Here is another layout from the Polar Express train ride we went on....

I used

Cricut carts Tinker bell and friends for believe

Home accents for the swirls on the corners of the pictures

Christmas for the bell and the train and snow flakes

every day paper dolls for the train tracks

Storybook for the back ground shape

I double cut the title and off set it so you could see the white to look shadowed.

The snow flakes I add Martha Stewart snow to them and branches pop dotted them.

The bell added a ribbon bow and stickles also pop dotted.

The train I chalked doodled and added brads on the wheels

The track I inked

I used Fisker corner punch for the corners of the layout and the corners for the pictures.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Winter fun

Happy New Year everyone!

Well out with the old and in with the new, I decided with such a crappy year last year I am gonna change it this year and take my life back!!!!

1. Back to church ( I was really slipping ) ( GOD FIRST )

2. Accept my self just as I am ( stop worrying about my weight gain ) I am gonna watch my portions.

3. Get more involved with people ( I have shut my self off from the world and sank into a pretty good depression ( NO MORE ) Mainly because of self esteem issues!

4. Get up and get moving ( even if it hurts ) as most of you know I have planter fasiitis in my foot I have been suffering with it since May 2010 .

5. Try to get back to scrapping and crafts.... thus this post...haha

I have been really busy with my Mom she had a slight stroke a few days before Christmas and it has really affected her short term memory and she gets confused but I am thankful we still have her.

Ok on with the page... We went on the Polar Express train ride in Dec ( It was awesome )

You take a train ride and the kids get to dress in their pj's they read them the story and Santa , Mrs Claus and the elves are there also they give you hot chocolate and cookies ( YUM )

play games and at the end they give the kids a bell ( Do you BELIEVE ).... I do

We had such a Great time and I took lots of pictures so hope I will be scrapping them...

This is a picture of my Daughter Tabatha and her future Husband Juddy standing out side the train station they had it decorated really nice!

I used

Cricut carts Plantin school book/ Joys of the season/ Design studio

EK Success Snow flake punch / corner punch

Martha Stewart branch and boarder punch

flower / brad/ glitter heart sticker/ buttons/ glitter.

Cut the Soldiers out at 9 ins and heat embossed the red and green used a little chalk for the cheeks. the holly cut at 3ins
