Unforgettable Disney - Two Layouts

For National Scrapbook day in May, Disney Scrappers hosted our annual week of Disney scrapping with challenges.  These were two of my challenge layouts.

“Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.”

This challenge may cause you to shed a tear or two.  The challenge includes two elements:
  1. Scrap a retired Disney something: attraction, parade, character, show, item, etc 
  2. Scrap it with a retired line of paper or scrapbook items from a company that is no longer in business.
With all the changes happening in so many parks, I'm sure we all have pictures of things that are no longer part of the Disney parks.

This layout features paper and embellishments by Basic Grey, and photos from Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree (RIP) which was one of my favorite parts of Disneyland park.  It was such a great get-away! These pictures were from one of the many special character events they hosted back there.
Layout based on Sketch Savvy Sketch #156

And this is my second layout and challenge:
Almost 61 years ago, Walt Disney opened his beloved Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California.
This challenge is simple, scrap anything in Disneyland Park, however, since we are still celebrating Disneyland's diamond anniversary, you must include at least one of the following on your layout:
  • a rhombus (diamond) shape
  • rhinestones or bling
  • something Mickey Mouse
**Extra points** if you scrap a Disneyland original attraction or something with historical Disney significance.

My layout was inspired by one Susan at Creatively Savvy did for Christmas.  I loved her use of the rhombus shape and kind of fiddled around with it a few months ago but didn't get anywhere with it. I pulled it back out for this challenge, and all the Basic Grey embellishment bits that I thought I was going to throw away ended up being perfect for the pictures!

This is a sight you see either from the Mark Twain River Boat, the Sailing Ship Columbia, or the Davey Crockett Explorer Canoes.  We were in the DCE Canoes on the day I took these pictures.  Chief Waves-a-lot has been there in various forms since 1956 I believe.  Since he waves, a LOT, I thought all the hi and hello  embellishments were funny.  The chief was an important part of the original Rivers of America story in that directly across from him is the settler's cabin which has gone through several storylines itself. Now it is home to the River King, Mike Fink. All that to say that the canoes and the chief are both historically part of Disneyland's ROA since 1955-56.
