Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Expedition Rocks!

Okay, this week Tombow Adhesive and Imaginisce are having a blog swap. The nice folks at Tombow sent the Imaginisce Design team a box full of adhesive. What a treat! After all a scrapbooker can never have too much adhesive. The little glue pen that they make works awesome when using diecut letters. The pen is so easy to control and the tip is just the right size for small letter cuts. So anyway, let me show you what I did with their fantastic adhesive!!

Like many of you, I have a thousand Disney pictures still waiting to get into the books. One of our first experiences at Disney World was to go to the Animal Kingdom. At the end of every day they have a parade and this one is called "Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Expedition". It was very fun and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I had a ton of pictures so I decided to make a collage out of all of them.

The papers I used here were from the Imaginisce "Live Loud" Collection. This collection has such vibrant and fun colors. Teals, greens, blues, oranges. Check it out. It has a music "rock and roll" theme, but I thought it went well with the colors from the costumes that were being worn in the parade.

Stepping out on a limb............

Well today's post is a two page layout. I have to say, I am the first one to admit that I do not always jump on the bandwagon when it comes to the latest and greatest of scrapbook products. Don't get me wrong, I love it all, I am just slow to try new things (sometimes). Well on this layout I did try something a little different for me, Glimmer Mist. I know, I know, stop the presses....and this product is not "new". See what I mean, "I am slow to try new things". Anyway, here it is.

I wanted this layout to look like I had splattered paint on it, so that is where the Glimmer Mist comes in. Tell me, what do you think?

Come on, did I get the point across or does it just look "messy" to you? And when is the last time you stepped out on a limb? Thought out of the box? I would love to see it. Please post a link, there might be a give away up for grabs. I will post what is up for grabs in the next couple of days. So get busy!!!

And thanks for stopping by. I hope I inspired you.

Are we there ZZZ....

I can't tell you how many times my kids have fallen asleep in the car after a long vacation. These pictures were taken from my iPhone so they are not the best quality, but actually they are not too bad. 

And here is a close up of the title. I used rubons on top of the dimensional sticker.

I also like to use the I-top punches for some punched shapes. I think they are fun. It sure was quite in the car when I took these photos.

I hope this layout inspires you. The next time you have a chance to take these photos, go for it.
Products used: Patternd papers, rubons, stickers, punches and brad maker: Imaginisce; Cardstock by Bazzill; Foam letters and fabric letters by American Crafts; Pen: Copic.

"One Lazy Dog" Imaginisce Sketch Challenge

Well Imaginisce is at it again. They are posting another sketch challenge for March on the Just Imagine blog. Check it out. They even have the February winner posted.

This months sketch is created by the very talented Erin Basset.

Here is my take on the sketch. I rotated it a bit. I used the Scooter's Vacation line from Imaginisce. I have been known to say that I would never scrapbook my pets as long as I was behind on scrapping my family (which I am by the way), but I have eaten my words. This line is just too cute not to scrap the new family pet. Cameron got her for Christmas. She is from the local animal control shelter. I have to say, we have had pure breads in the past, but she is the best dog.

Close up of the title.

Thanks for looking and you should really think about participating. Imaginisce gives awesome prizes!!! I just absolutely love being part of this team. I could not ask for more.

Oh, and don't forget to check out the other Imaginisce Designer's blogs for their takes on the sketch. And leave a comment, you just might be in for another goody drawing!!

Products used are Cardstock: Bobunny, Patterned Papers,  3-D stickers, puffy stickers, ribbon, punch, I-top brad maker: Imaginisce; letters stickers: American Crafts.
