MDS Monday 141 - Disney Style

Time for another MDS Monday sketch.  This makes me sad because after this one, there is only one more.  I am so thankful for Stampin' Up for this wonderful program.  I was never very good at scrapbooking but found my niche with My Digital Studio.  I even taught a few others to use it.  I will continue to use MDS but probably combine it with another program.  I need to check and make sure I have all the downloads I want before it is too late!

This week's sketch is based on a page that Cindy created when she applied to be on SU's Artisian Design Team a few years ago.  The flags and ferris wheel on her design are great but I decided to go a different route.  I still used pennants (or flags) on my sketch but instead of the ferris wheel, used a photo of The Magic Kingdom and lowered the opacity.  I also inserted it into a Frame Overlay from Thoughtful Overlays.


This is the first time I have used the Spiral Punch!  I layered a rectangle of white, a rectangle of black and then the spiral punch (colored white) on both sides.  After inserting the 4 photo boxes on top, I grouped everything together.  The polka dot background is also an overlay from Hello, World.

MDS Monday Disney Style

This is my layout for this week's MDS Monday sketch.  It's a fun linear layout featuring lots of photo and background papers.  Epcot was really fun and I especially enjoyed the International Flower and Gardens Festival.  The topiaries of the Disney characters were really fun! 

I had a hard time deciding on what to do with the boxes without pictures.  I put different patterns in them but really didn't like that.  So I went through most of my stamps on MDS and found several different stamps that I thought fit with the layout.  It's funny.  With MDS, I seem to use the images in the Designer Kit Embellishments and don't take the time to look at all the different stamps I have.  I learned a lesson today to look at my stamps more often.

Make sure you check out the other great layouts on the MDS Monday Blog.

Disney with MDS Monday

Sorry about the lack of posts this week but I think the pollen in the air and the budding spring trees has gotten to me!  I don't usually get allergies but think they've gotten me this spring!  My throat is killing me, my nose is running and I have lots of "gunk" in the back of my throat.

But I wanted to do a page for MDS Monday this week using one of the pictures from our trip last week to Disney.

The challenge was to use a single picture and the Freeeform Tool to tell the story.  I made the small Mickey Mouse's with circle punches.  What do you think?

I used two Overlay Stamps for the background - Textured and the Stars are from a Convention kit.  I ripped the edges of the DSP and layered it in the background of the picture.  To finish it off, I added a few Real Red buttons with Bakers Twine in the center.  Also the "oh what fun" is an Overlay Stamp.

Our Trip to Disney

We had a wonderful time at Disney World.  I think my favorite was Animal Kingdom with Epcot coming in a close second.

This Tree of Life was just spectacular.  I bet I took 20 pictures of it!
 The tree's roots expand into the central hub area and there are carvings of animals that make up the circle of life, from tiny bugs to large crocodiles and more.  It is fun to try and find all the different animals in the carvings.

This was the Mickey Mouse statue that was in our hotel.  It was a military hotel and I loved that Mickey is done patriotic!

It started raining on us at the end of the day in Animal Kingdom and we went in a building to get out of the rain.  Who did we meet but Mickey and Minnie?!!
