Let your inner artist shine!

This kit was inspired by a chat on Mousescrappers during Chattapalooza week.... someone posed the question "What colors would you use to scrap Mickey and/or Minnie other than Red, Black and Yellow?". My mind immediately went to the classic Mickey and Minnie Drawings and Turquoise popped into my head! I started thinking about the old black and white Mickey shorts and the Mickey comics I remember from my childhood.
Then my husband taped a show for me on the DVR about one of my favorite people ever... Ub Iwerks! For those of you that have never heard of Ub.....he was Walt Disney's "partner in crime" back in the 1920's! He was actually the one who first drew Mickey Mouse! He was the chief animator for most of the early Mickey Mouse cartoon and the Silly Symphonies. Though he let Disney for awhile to pursue what we call nowadays a "solo career", he returned to Disney where his genius led to such innovations as the combination of live anaction and animation. He was also one of the original Imagineers.... helping to create many  Disney Parks Attractions during the 1960's.

So here's to you Ub.....

I Love Rock'n Roll!

Over the past few years my daughter has become a real adrenaline junkie! We live 15 minutes from Hersheypark and she rides all 11 rollercoasters that they have!!! We just knew that she would LOVE Rock'n Roller Coaster at DHS......boy were we right on the money!! Little did we know that our son would love it as well!!! This kit was inspired by that ride....our kids loving it and and us taking the "chicken exit" and being able to check out the behind the scenes. 
I hope you like it!

just....Give a little whistle!


Guten Tag Everyone! I started out this project to make a few elements and papers to scrap everyone's favorite cricket. I was just going to do a few papers and a couple of elements....like an umbrella.... just to scrap a few pages with. Pinocchio is actually an Italian story and over the years we have met Gepetto, Foulfellow and Gideon in the Italy Pavillion. But the more I researched the more I realized that the Disney version of Pinoccho is actually set in Germany. Pinocchio even wears lederhosen! So my little mini-kit started morphing into something German very quickly. Before long I was creating Cuckoo Clocks and pretzels and Gummi Bears! I had a lot of fun with this and I sure hope you like it!




My Creative Team did a wonderful job with this. I am always so anxious to see what they come up with and they never disappoint! The freebies they have made are fantabulous!!















and here are a few created by me....
the first one is for MS Template Challenge #62. I just could not resist Lyn's fabulous template!





and I have a freebie for you as well.....



and as always.... Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world!
