8 1/2 X 11 Layout


This batch of photos is from a Disney Cruise from over five years ago. Ahhh… remember the days when we travelled regularly? Lol. We are a family that go to Disney almost every year and each time we take just as many photos as the previous time. Typically, when I sit down to scrapbook the memories, I immediately get overwhelmed with the insane amount of photos. This time what triggered me to document this part of the trip was a piece of paper from the Echo Park Pirate Tales collection. So yup. Product certainly helps get the crafty mojo going. Disney Cruises typically have a pirate night so I went through those photos and selected some of my favourites from the night. I was going to find a way to get al five photos on this page! Ironically, I lost my sea legs that night and couldn’t attend… which, of…

Therefore, my paper crafting story is evolving to fit into my life. Simple and fast.

Perhaps it represents some new beginnings or maybe it’s because there can never be too many pumpkins. It’s a time of year that I find refreshing. Like many families, we have a tradition to visit our local pumpkin patch for some photos sitting on haystacks surrounded by orange “balls” as my one year old exclaims this year! Today’s layout was inspired by Traci Reed Design’s (TRD) free digital cut file, Stacked Pumpkins. I’ve recently moved my Silhouette die cutting machine from under my desk to the top.
