Pluto's Corner - Disney Studios in Burbank

This layout was made using an SVG file for my Cricut and this sketch from Sketch Savvy by my friend Susan Stringfellow. Please visit her sketch blog to download the file and a copy of the sketch.

This was such a fun, unique sketch and I loved the shape of the patterned paper pieces, but I wanted it to be a two pager, so of course, I added page 2.

The papers are all Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety. What a bright, energetic paper line! I added the blue checkerboard paper from CC Material Girl Line and the stripe is from CC Cogsmo. I really felt that the layouts needed some blue and I had seen Susan add the Cosmo stripe on one of her layouts with this line, so I pulled a piece from my stash and she was so right, it was perfect!

The title is Minnie font and I used my Cricut with SCAL. The paw prints can be found on the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge.

These pictures are of Pluto's Corner. It is a little intersection on the Disney Studios lot in Burbank, California. My DH and I had gone to a movie screening at the theater on the lot, and we took a minute to take a picture at this famous corner. The sign post is an old prop from the studio tour portion at the beginning of The Reluctant Dragon movie made in 1941. The places on the sign do not really point to those departments. Later on, a Disney employee added the three dog prints in front of the fire hydrant and it was name Pluto Corner.

Here is a little clip of that studio tour portion of the movie, but it only shows a little bit of the outside of the buildings. This segment doesn't show the sign, but it's cute!
