Disney Layouts

Four down one hundred to go......Awe, the joys of Disney. I think I took over 700 pictures at Disney this past year. I just love Walt Disney World. Here is a fact about myself that you may not know. I worked at Disneyworld's Port Orleans Resort in College. So yep, I wore the ugly long dresses, little amounts of make-up and no bleached hair. Those were the days, I am sure that they don't go by such strict rules these days, but back in the day they did! Another fact: my husband worked at Disney too! We didn't work there at the same time, but we both have a tremendous love for Disneyworld, and we will be taking many more trips there!
Below are the layouts that I have done so far. Well, I am missing a T for the first layout. So I am on the hunt for those Thickers! In the third layout you will see that I crocheted on the layout, I just love this technique!
In the Donald Duck/Epcot layout I used the Cricut and made a Donald Duck. So Cute! I hope you enjoy these and I will post more as I make them. I do have lots of school and sports layouts that I completed, I will try to post them in a few.

Happy Scrapping!

September Calendar Class and School Kits at TM

Hi my fellow scrappers! I have been a very busy bee. School has started and I am falling back into a routine! Yeah for me and my family. I need this structure in my life, it makes me a much happier person! I went to Arbor Oaks 2 weekends ago and I promise to post some pictures soon. I completed 17 layouts while there. I was on a major mission! Mission not quite accomplished but very happy with the outcome! I will be teaching a class at Scrapfest in September, it is the school layout above. I just loved the summer layout that I taught in Rayne, so I thought I'd come up with something similar to teach in Mandeville. The flip book has been around for ages, but I taught it for the first time and it was a HUGE HIT! It is such a great way to incorporate more pictures or journaling! If you are interested I am selling these kits as well. The next layout is my September Class at TM. As you can see...I am so over summer and readddddy for some Fall weather! I am actually opening up a 4th class this month. My classes have been doing great, and I want to keep class sizes a little smaller so I thought it was best to open the Friday class this month. Please let me know if you are interested in taking this class, you can always call the store at 337-534-4433.

Few Customer Layouts

Many of you want me to post pictures of the layouts that I create for my customers. Well, I don't usually like to post these because as scrappers you'd be let down. When I scrap for non-scrappers they don't want the thrills and frills of scrapbooking so many times the layouts are very "old school". Last night I created a few for a lady that I have been scrapping for, for 4 yrs. They called for some thrills and frills, it was prom for her son and a dance recital for her daughter. I hope you enjoy!
*And remember these pictures are from my 3G phone so they aren't so great!

A Little R&R

Well, if you are looking for inspiration or ideas I will have some for you in a few short weeks. As long as Arbor Oaks has been open, I have wanted to go. Well, the timing was never right or getting together 10 people was a challenge. I am eager to say that I am so excited that I will finally be attending my first weekend crop at Arbor Oaks in just a few short weeks! The planning stage is on~ I have been working hard at cleaning my scraproom and getting the things together that I will need. It is going to be interesting, being that I hardly ever go to a-way crops. I have Disney layouts planned and I have lots of catching up on school stuff. Remember at the beginning of the summer I said that was my goal to get school stuff complete before the new school year started. I failed miserably at this! We have been so busy this summer over at TM and I just have not worked on my school stuff much at all. I will get it all complete soon! Stay tuned...I will post pictures!

My Family

I just thought I might have a really quiet August, without much hustle and bustle...yeah right! This is not the case at all. I am finishing up my classes from July this week (the first week in August.) With the big megacrop, we just didn't have time to fit it into the July schedule. So as soon as I was wrapping up this class, I had to hurry and get a class ready for August. I chose to create a layout that could go anyway. I was afraid to choose a school layout because not everyone needs school. I just loved the new line that Janet got in at TM- Authentique. The colors are just beautiful. My photographs would have actually gone really good with the colors, but I chose to use black and white to show my ladies that you don't have to have pictures that match perfectly- just change the color! The layout looks very linear and clean...but I promise you its got tons of techniques! From the 3 T's to making flowers to the sew easy tool. I hope you enjoy!
