I got it done, whew!

Whew!  I just barely squeaked in on time but I got our 2009 WDW album completed just a day or two before we went on our 2011 trip!  Here are the last few pages:

Back from vacation and goodies to share

So I am finally back from vacation and ready to jump back in to scrapping.  Which is good because it is the first of the month and that means Mix A Kit time!  This month's mix a kit colors are definitely halloweeny but as you can see, they work for other things besides Halloween pages, and the elements are very classic and will go with all sorts of things besides Halloween pages.  See, here is my L.A. Kings page. 

Here is the great stuff I used:

I heard there was a freebie on her blog too, so go check it out!

Bow shirt for Disney!

This is one of the shirts I made for our Disney trip.  Just lots of red, black, and white bows coming down one shoulder and onto the shirt.  First I tied all of the bows, then ran the edges through a flame so they wouldn't fray or look sloppy.  They were all pinned to the shirt for a while while I figured out the correct placement, then each bow was stitched to the shirt through the knot in the bow.  They should stay tied and attached to the shirt.  I hope!

Took the pic with my phone, it is really cute in person!

I thought about doing some pops of yellow as well, but couldn't round up much yellow ribbon.

That's a lotta Clothes!

Right now I'm making our packing list for vacation.  It is 7 pages long.  OCD list making and obsessive packing make for one long, crazy packing list, I admit it. 

For vaction hubster got 4 new pairs of shorts, 4 new pairs of shoes, lots of new chonies and sleep t shirts ( you really don't need the number), 5 new polo shorts, 6 new tee shirts, and 5 new button down shirts.

I got 3 new pairs of spanx (huzza!), new dainties (what we call panties/bras around here), 3 new pairs of shoes, 6 new dresses, 8 new shirts, and 4 new pairs of shorts. 

We are gone for 8 nights.  We may be over packing.  Or I may have over shopped....

Counting Down...

Every night Hubster and I have the official countdown ceremony, usually as I am prepping dinner.

Our countdown ceremony is:  taking turns putting up the days countdown Mickey head while the other person applauds and we say yay vacation!  I know...we are weird...

Rather than doing classic mickey colors (don't want to get too burnt out on the red, white, and black) I went more vacation-y with a tropical tiki theme.  Which is perfect because I am a tiki NUT! 

Sorry if the pic isn't great - I took it with my phone.

Having a countdown calendar is fun but not so fun.  For some reason seeing the days up seems to make it go by so much slooowwwweerrrrr....  I like it better when I check online every few days and am pleasantly surprised that it is 5 days less than the last day I looked.

I hope you have something fun to count down to!

Adventure Camp!

If you purchased Adventures Away, Haynay Designs Up themed kit, you don't want to miss out on the grab bag she put together to celebrate Scrap Matters Birthday.  Adventure Camp uses the same color scheme and coordinates perfectly, but is... you guessed it...camp themed.  But it also works so well for camping pages and any outdoors theme.  The grab bag is such a bargain at $4.50, so go grab it while it's on sale for the birthday celebration!
