Happy September!

Happy September!


I’ve been a busy bee today working on my September calendars. I spent most of the afternoon coloring and fussy cutting 3 images and half a dozen apples.  Very happy with how they turned out though :-)


This is Apple Emma from C.C. Designs and it’s the first time I’ve inked her up~

September Calendar 1


September Calendar 2


September Calendar 3


The background papers are from Imaginisce’s Apple Cider 6×6 paper pad.


I did get a bunch of scrapping done yesterday so I’ll have lots to share this week!


Tomorrowland Rides {more Disney layouts}

Good morning!!! The last day of August…wow, it really flew by!!


I hope to have more to share later today but for this post, I’m sharing the last of the layouts I made last week!  I started to use sketches and then went off track with both LOL. I don’t usually do that but I was using background paper that I didn’t want to cover up.


Here is the first one~

I used more of the October Afternoon Rocket Age and added some brads from my stash. I tell ya, this paper was a PAIN in the neck lol. It took quite a bit to punch out all the pre-scored numbers.


Here is the 2nd one~

2014 Page 43 - Space Ranger Spin 2012

I love this fun paper that I found at my scrapbook store several months ago. I trimmed it down so that I could mount in on green to draw more attention to Buzz in the corner.  The little banners were cut from the leftover paper. A piece of chipboard from October Afternoon’s Rocket Age and more buttons/brads from my stash were added.


That’s all for now!


First Look @ Tomorrowland {a Disney layout}



I got out of work early and took advantage of the nice weather to run a few fun errands. Hobby Lobby and the cupcake shop! I’m all ready for a long scrappy weekend!


This is another layout that I did last week. It is for the 2nd August sketch from ScrapMuch?  These are pictures from our first Disney trip in September 2011. One of my Disney groups had a challenge to scrap a space theme and to use metal. Check and check! Do you see the hidden Mickey? :-)

I used cardstock, buttons and brads from my stash and some patterned paper from the October Afternoon Rocket Age collection.


Here is the sketch~

Mission Space 2014 {a Disney layout}



Tonight I am sharing a layout I made last week for the August 1st sketch at ScrapMuch? I was working with an 8×8 October Afternoon Rocket Age paper pad so I ended up with lots of white space. Usually it drives me crazy but I just went with the flow this time lol.

I also used some Rocket Age chipboard and stickers that were in my stash. I had bought a few of the Santa Sacks several years ago and saved a ton of stuff that wasn’t my taste at the time, good thing I did. It finally came in handy!
