Happy, Happy Disney Days - A Page by Cheryl Waters for Jennifer Priest

I was thrilled when I recieved Jennifer's photos of her and her family during their recent trip to Disneyland. Disneyland is known as the 'happiest' place on Earth' and by the expressions on these darling faces you can sure tell. What a wild ride - the Mad Hatter teacups. One of my daughter's favorite at Disneyland and surely a favorite of Jennifer's kids. I love the priceless expressions she caught on film.
I included two photos on the layout and the remaining photos are tucked away behind the canvas page in a pocket. But I can't share the whole page with you as of yet. I chose some fun colors to accent the colors in the photo and wanted a really 'carefree' feel to the layout. I used gesso, fabric paint, acrylic paint, Tattered Angels glimmer mist and even fabric crayons to give the canvas texture.
Having had the opportunity to spend some time with Jennifer I know she enjoys unique embellishments so I incorporated some cute little Japanese stickers (do you see the little girl with the camera?) I also made some of my own embellishments with foil glue and some unique trinkets I found at a craft store.
Thank you Jennifer for allowing me the opportunity to scrap these fun and 'happy' memories from your 'Disney Days'. When you wish upon a star . . . I hope all your dreams come true!

Candice's Rose Bowl fun - by Donna Salazar

A few of the girls from the Lucky 13 decided to go on an outing to the Rose Bowl swap meet before Candice McClean moved away from us. I didn't get to go because I was swamped with work at the time :( sniff. The photos that Candice sent me made me wish I had blown off work and gone with them. They looked like they had a blast!
The pictures were fun-girly-vintagey-goodness and I had the BEST product for the job. My sweet friend, Mel, from Kaiser Craft had sent me a ton of goodies from their new lines and I used the embroidered badges, die cut images and paper from the Pennyroyale line.

I also used some of the die cut images from my Winter Wishes line as well as some of my YUMMY die cut cardboard (available at www.pineconepressdesign.com) I loved how this layout turned out and I can't wait to give it to Candice next year!
Thanks for checking it out! Hugs ~D~
