Sympathetic Bird

There have been a number of people passing away in recent weeks and I am in need of some more sympathy cards. This is what I put together yesterday.
I used the latest Just Add Ink challenge to add wings, with this little bird image I haven't used before now. The bird and leaves are die cut, the branch and specks are stamped directly onto the card front.

Ink: Stazon Black, Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze 
Paper: Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Gold Metallic Specialty Paper
Accessories: Linen Thread, Festive Pearls, Watercolor Pencils 1 & 2, Blender Pens, Aspen Trees Dies, Dimensionals big shot
Watercolor Pencils: Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso

Galaxy's Edge Scrapping!!

aka: Star Wars Land, at Disneyland!
This was the section my boys were the most excited about, but we're all fans of Star Wars in our house (some a bit more than others...). That means we took a lot of pictures in this area and that means there were a lot of pages to make! And now that they're done, here you go! 

Our first ride Monday morning was the very huge Rise of The Resistance! 

Then we didn't make it back until Thursday morning. Our first thing that day was Smuggler's Run, and that ended up being the favorite for many of us. It's a little like an interactive video game. As soon as we got off the ride, we ran around and went again! 

Then we tried the blue and green milks!
(this one is a traditional page. I just put the following ink pads directly onto Gray Granite card stock: Garden Green, Pear Pizazz, Soft Succulent, Parakeet Party, Gray Granite, Old Olive, Mint Macaron)

And checked out all the scenery! 

And back to Rise one more time! 

Finally, we had to go back Saturday evening to see the whole land at night. Also, once again, we did Smugglers Run back to back, haha, but that didn't get it's own page this time, only the one photo.

I think it was a hit. hahaha.....

Marching Band at Disneyland!

I have had a sick little one and no time for creating, but I still have LOTS of scrapbooking to share! Maybe one of these days I'll get some posts typed up ahead of time to share on crazy weeks... but don't hold your breath, lol. 

For today, I've got this fun page. My son looved his time in marching band and really enjoyed catching this marching band performance. So of course it had to be mentioned in our scrapbook! 

Paper: Marina Mist, Basic Black, misc DP
Accessories: Musical Instruments dies, washi tape, Big Shot

Pirates Of the Caribbean

In October I managed to get 28 scrapbook pages done, which is super exciting for me. I'm trying to get Disney DONE but there's just so much to say! haha!

So here are three pages of the Pirates ride. We went on it our first day and our last day, and originally I thought I'd combine them in to one layout, buuut that just wasn't going to work. So the layouts use the same supplies and the pages end up in different books, so it's perfectly fine, haha. I loved getting to use that set "The Open Sea" again!! 

Stamps: The Open Sea
Ink: Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray, Gray Granite, Crumb Cake, Delicata Gold
Paper: Pretty Peacock
Accessories: gold gems (old PP kit)
Journaling Font: Pieces of Eight

We Create Blog Hop: Thankful & Thinking of You

And just like that, it's November already and time to share our gratitude for others! Which is why our theme this month is both Thankful and Thinking of You. These are some of the cards I mail out the most, and I had already thought I would try to send out several thank you cards this month. Altho my card today ended up working better as a Thinking of You.

Today's card uses a diagonal tic-tac-toe challenge from The Paper Players (orange/yellow, texture, fall) and the sketch from Hand Stamped Sentiments. And this lovely bundle from the July-December Mini catalog. 
Stamps: Perched in a Tree
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Crushed Curry
Accessories: Linen Thread, Amber Gems, Dimensionals, Circle dies, Aspen Trees dies, big shot

There are a lot of aspen trees in my area and Mango Melody and Crushed Curry are perfect for the color of their leaves! I love how that worked out for today's challenges! 

Now hop along over to Cheryl's blog using the button below, and see what she has made for you. Then hop on thru to see everyone's projects. 
And then make something pretty and stick it in the mail to brighten someone else's day too!
