D23 First Anniversary Party!

On March 10, 2010, we went to Disneyland for the first D23 Anniversary event. We met some Disney legends, got pictures with a bunch of rare Disney characters, and ate some yummy Disney desserts. You can read more about the actual event and some some pictures on my Disneyland blog.

Yet again, the Afternoon Tea paper from Scrap Within Reach was the perfect color scheme, and yet again, my friend Susan came through with the perfect sketch! Be sure and visit her blog, Sketch Savvy and check out all the great sketches.

For this layout I chose to use Sketch #19 and because it was a one page sketch, I decided to turn it into a two pager.

Instead of the stitching, I added the line of ribbon across the top, and then did do some machine sewing on my layout.

Because there was no title on the second page, the top corner needed a little something, so I decided to stamp and emboss a design. I found this stamp set to be just the perfect thing for each of the top corners of this layout. I stamped the image on the green cardstock with clear embossing ink, then embossed it with purple distress embossing powder. If you've never worked with Ranger's Distress Embossing powder, it is really neat! It doesn't get shiny, but it is a dull, very textured feel and I love it.

The stamp set was also designed by Susan for Inque Boutique/ Darice. It is called Ornaments (#50391).

I really loved the simplicity of this layout. It wasn't cluttered and really let the colors of the paper and the pictures shine through.
