We Love Happy Endings!

 First, I didn't realize until I took this picture that the Endings is meandering, so I will straighten it out later -- no time now. :-D  That's the beauty of green Tombow glue, I can ease the letters off and replace them and not tear the letters or the paper.  Woot!  And there is a funny reflection on the photo.  Looks like a re-shoot is in order tomorrow.

This layout is of me, my mom and sis at the end of a lovely girl's day at Disneyland.  The title is taken from the end of Sleeping Beauty when Fauna sighs and says, "I love happy endings!"

I used Sketch #84 from Sketch Savvy for the Disney Scrappers NSD Challenge #2

 Flowers and leaves and Say it in Pearls swirl are all from Prima.  I colored them with Distress inks and made the little roses blue and pink since Flora, Fauna and Merriweather are always fighting over pink or blue for Aurora.

To get the flowers both blue and pink, I put a drop of blue distress ink on my craft mat and sprtized it with water, then used a tiny paint brush to paint it on the flowers in the center. Once it was dry I spritzed the entire flower with pink distress stain that I mixed using 2 drops of Antique Linen and Worn Lipstick, and 4 drops of Victorian Velvet distress inks from the reinkers and mixed with water in a mini mister.  Then I dried them again.  

I must say the hardest part for me was using what I had of this very old Basic Grey Phresh and Phunky.  I so love this paper, but I think it was meant to be used on this layout.  And I had to use it at somepoint right?   I can't just keep hoarding paper and never using it just because I can't get it any more.

Here is my Hidden mickey since part of the challenge was to have a Hidden Mickey on the page.  I know, not so hidden, but they have a similar one on a painting in the Carnation Plaza, so I just used that idea.

Here is the picture I'm talking about:

And if it has been awhile since you have seen Sleeping Beauty, here is my title inspiration:
