Prince Ali! Handsome is he...

My favorite Prince,  Aladdin! I have posed with Al many times  - always a pleasure. This particular Aladdin was a sweetie, he asked about my day and told me a story about his  - which I already knew because I have seen the movie - but it was cute and in character. I was lucky this day because he was in the Oasis when I came off the Jungle Cruise. He had a handler with him but no line! I don't think people were even noticing he was in there - so bonus for me! :)

Background paper is Fancy Pants, the orange banner is DCWV, the yellow is Basic Grey Piccadilly, and the brown stripe is a scrap from K&Co. The small red letters are from Making Memories, the brown glitter stickers are Thickers. I have a box full of borders and I don't remember the makers on them, but, I think these two are K&Co. The red jewels are Queen & Co. Twinkle Goosebumps and the three round decorations down the side are Prima Flower centers but I like them on their own!

Disney Almost Wordless Wednesday - Tiki Garden

I am again playing along with Debs Dis at Focused on the Magic for the Disney Almost Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop. Everyone is welcome to link up and there are always great photos from all the participants! The (optional) theme this week is May Calendar Shot. This means choose a photo you would use to represent May if you were making your own calendar! I chose this shot of the Tiki Garden waiting area for the Enchanted Tiki Room. It puts me in the mind of standing there viewing this very sight and enjoying a delicious Dole Whip!

Big Thunder - Little Mickey

For the Disney Scrappers challenges, Tami comes up with some really cute and creative ideas! One of those ideas is to highlight a Hidden Mickey within one of the parks - being from Arizona, I always enjoy the cactus Hidden Mickey near Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. I took a class about embellishment clusters recently and there were other techniques used in the video for the class and I wanted to try them - including using the cardboard and the paint. I'm not sure I love this but I don't hate it.I guess I just feel like it's not colorful enough. I do love lots of color! :P

My 17th Layout of the year! Yes, it's Disney...

the green army men, in fact! These are photos from the "Operation Playtime" show at DCA. The army men drive in and play some games with the kids in the crowd. It's fun and funny - try and catch it if you can! :)

And for my scrappy friends:

For this layout, I had some yellowy polka dot patterned paper that was a bit dull so I stamped it with the star stamp and also with some bubble wrap (my first try for that!) and I also spritzed it. I put down the patterned paper and border strips including the manufacturer strip on of my older cosmo cricket papers. The light blue strip was not sticking down very well so I washi taped the ends. :D The resist stamped "joy" card was a leftover I made but didn't use for another layout. I thought it fit with the play and Disneyland aspects and the color was right so I used it here! The army men stickers are from one of those $1 kid packs at Michael's. I put some stickles dots up the side just for fun and I also did a print and cut on my Silhouette for the yellow Echo Park Arrow.   I liked the two die cut circles and I thought it would be interesting to punch out a distance picture I had of the army men and use the top die cut for a frame. The bottom one was good for a bit of journaling.

Almost Wordless Wednesday - The Incredibles

The theme this week for Wordless Wednesday at Focused on the Magic with Deb is: Adventure! And what's more adventurous than Super Heroes? These are photos of Mr and Mrs. Incredible, Jack Jack and Frozone in the Pixar Play Parade in 2009. The background paper is old stash and already had the painted look. The large star is a transparency from Colorbok. EK Success Incredibles Stickers, print and cut from my Silhouette Echo Park arrow, various glitter and star stickers and tons of Washi Tape! I think my favorite thing here is Edna in the corner! :) This is a lift from amandaresende called "i am super duper" .
