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.
