Still In Disney!


Hey, a girl can dream, right? I'm actually giggling like a little kid right now!! Its 7:25am on Wednesday morning and I just finished a layout! What's the big deal? Well because and unnamed person (John), does not know how to be quiet in the mornings, I woke up at 5:15am in a foul mood. I am not a morning person to begin with and take away 1 1/2 hours of good sleep time and I'm even more grumpy. After a few choice words I got out of bed and stormed into the kitchen. I did a load of laundry, ran the dishwasher and made coffee. Oh you have no idea how badly I wanted to make TWO cups, rather than a full pot but I made the full pot! Anyway, after all that was done I got on the computer and started reading my emails. I was feeling sorry for myself because I have so many layout ideas in my head and my notebook and I knew tonight I could not scrap as I will be at Crew with Susie until 9ish. So what's a girl to do? Drop everything and go scrap NOW!! Hee Hee!!!! As soon as John left for work, I hightailed it into my scraproom armed with the latest sketch from Creative Scrappers. I still had Disney stuff on my desk from last night so I just grabbed what was at hand and made another Disney layout! That's 3 now!!!! I just may get this trip scrapped after all! Its only been 4 years!!! Papers are Sandylion, EK Success and Creative Imaginations. Felt by Queen & Co. Mickey Sticker by EK Success. Ribbon from my stash.  I cut the wavy border at the bottom using OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD Fiskars Decorative Scissors!  I have not touched these things in YEARS!!  I then had to do it twice to make the red mat underneath it because I didn't realize I was putting black on black!  DOH!  By using the scissors, this qualifies the layout for the Practical Scrappers challenge!  I didn't even do that on purpose....I just couldn't figure out any other way to get teh scalloped edge in a wave pattern to go along with the sketch and I jsut didn't have time to play with the Cricut!!  I may have to dust off some of my other decorative scissors now!

So now I am running late and I have to stop and get bagels for a co-worker's birthday! Hope you get some scrappy time today! Its a great way to start a day if you ask me!!

Susan I do this all the time. My hubby goes to work at 6:30am. I get up as he is leaving a little after 6, and have about an hour to scrap while the kids are asleep before getting ready for my work day. I love it! The only problem is that when I get rolling on a project, it is hard to stop, sometimes making me run behind!

Oh my word these LOs are fantastic!! Keep them coming... I need all the ideas I can get!! Better yet, why don't you just go ahead and make me up about 50 of them and when I get back from my vacation I can just pop the pictures in?!!!! LOL!!! Well... a girl can dream can't she?!!!

Great one, Susan! I was about to lift it for my daughter's pic with Mickey Mouse (I have the same papers) but our Mickey Mouse was wearing white and gold and my daughter had a purple coat on, so I can't make the photo match the papers... unless I do black and white, that might work!

This is such a fun themed page, sounds like you found your mojo at last with this trip! Sypmathies on the early morning wake up call ... would have put me in a grumpy mood too.
