BOTCT Round 2 and another freebie!!!

Well, Scrapmuss Design's CT Stars didn't come out on top for Round 1, but we're still battling along trying to show off our skills! Round 2 just closed, and the theme is all about music and lyrics. The CT Stars decided to choose any Disney movie, and incorporate lyrics from the movie into the layout. My lyrics are from Fox and the Hound. Image is linked to DSA for credits. Don't forget that voting starts today! Vote here.

Also, as a thank you for visiting my blog and following the CT Stars, here is a QP freebie based on my layout. Enjoy!

Using Shape Collage

From a top on the DIS, I found this wonderful collage tool. I first tried it out on this LO, where I used photos from a 2006 trip to make this collage of a Mickey head. I'm so excited about trying this, and I've already made quite a few collages just testing the capabilities.

To download the free program, just Google "Shape Collage." There are Mac and PC versions. I just love how this LO turned out!!!

It's been a while... some Disney LO's

I've been a scrapping maniac lately... I am just loving the digi life!!! I don't think I'm ever going back. I love that I can stop and start and not leave a mess out everywhere! I think I've created over 150 LOs since January. That's got to be a record for me!!!

Since I'm nearly out of recent 2009 photos, I've dipped back into the "archives" to pull out some photos from 2005 and 2006. Here are a few of my recent creations, including new and older photos:

This was done for a Speed Scrap at ScrapMatters. I love this photo and am so pleased at how this LO turned out. This is one of my favorite Disney photos of Shawn and I (taken in 2006).

These photos are from 2007 when we found the Leave a Legacy tile that we had created on the previous WDW trip.

One of our favorite attractions at DAK, Expedition Everest.

Taking it all in, Poly-style!

Created for a DIS digi challenge about Disney food!

One of my favorites that I've done so far. These photos are from a previous trip, but I just love the memory of it. :)

Using one of Scrapmuss Designs' templates, this LO shows off the whopping amount of bulk candy we were able to buy for $12. Yeah right!

Just made this one today... for a Tuesday Template challenge at ScrapMatters.

This was created for another DIS digi challenge... part of the challenge was to include at least one b&w photograph.

And, last but not least, is a LO about the Disney buses, also created for a Disney digi challenge.

(inter)National Scrapbooking day

Well, iNSD has come and gone... I'm a bit late in posting this on May 3. I've been busy buying kits and scrapping for the challenges over at ScrapMatters. I haven't posted a list of layouts in a while, so there are the ones that I've worked on for the challenges (template challenge, etc.):

Also, Maria has some great new photo masks, released just this past week in honor of NSD. The LO below was created using her Capture This: Life set. Check it out here.

Happy Scrapbooking!

First official LO for Scrapmuss

Shawn and I went to Disney's Doorway to Dreams grand opening in Schaumburg, IL in August 2007. It was such great Disney fun! I wanted to use bright color to match the atmosphere at the event (minus the horrendous Dee Vee Cee, of course). {{Disney people will get that reference.}} Scrapmuss Designs' "Paper Blues" kit was the perfect choice.

I've been working like crazy on more Disney layouts. I haven't posted any in quite some time, so here are some of the newer ones. As always, credits are in the posts at ScrapMatters, DigiShopTalk and Go Digital Scrapbooking, assuming they are posted already.
