So Goofy - Farewell 2016!

Hello, friends! Welcome to my last blog post of the year.

I know they have been few and far between these last couple of months, but I hope that will be changing here soon, as life will (hopefully) slow a bit and allow for more crafting, scrapbooking and documenting!

I'm glad to say goodbye to 2016, as it has been a diffcult year, although goodness happened too. Including a fun trip to Disneyworld the first week of this month. That's what I'm documenting today! I've finally gotten to begin on my Disneyworld album, and it will be a big one - over 2000 photos were taken between myself, my father and photo pass.

For my first page, I used a lovely sketch from Let's Get Sketchy. They are using this sketch for a call to find guest designers for their Design Team in 2017. I would be very honored to be chosen to work with the talented ladies of this Design Team. I throughly enjoy using the sketches from this blog!

Here is the application sketch:

To fit the photo I wanted to use, I rotated the sketch.

I really love how it turned out! I enjoyed using mostly non-Disney papers and embellishments, but throwing in a bit of a Disney stack my hubby put in my stocking.

The doily was a last minute addition that I found in my drawer and matched the Goofy color scheme, and I'm so glad I discover it becasue I love it!

 I used a mix of Authentique, Studio Calico and My Mind's Eye papers for this layout. The white alphas are Jasmine Jones' for a past December Daily kit.

More photos from this character dinner are below!

Here is the double page spread.

I used my Disney paper pad from Christmas, with some other paper scraps and happy mail bits. The stickers are Me and My Big Ideas and Echo Park.

Ha! My big boy is smiling the same smile in a lot of our Disney photos.

Sometimes I struggle with my pocket pages. I know I cannot realistically actually full-page scrapbook all my photos, so I use pocket pages, but I feel like they stifle my creativity staying within the pockets. However, I am quite pleased with how this page turned out. Hopefully it is a sign of good flow to come for this Disneyworld album!

Don't worry - the little one definitely warmed up to meeting characters during the week. The Woody & Buzz photos made me cry to see all the joy these two boys had upon meeting them. I am not even sure my scrapbooking can do them justice!

I hope you have enjoyed some scrapbooking inspiration from me this year. I have defnitely enjoyed growing my online prescence in the scrapbooking community this year, and I have made some lovely, crafty friends! 2017 will be great - we'll see!

Thanks for looking & Happy New Year!

Celebrate the holidays!

Today I bring you the last of my completed 2015 December pages. I will complete more later. Also, expect many, new, Christmasy, DISNEY pages soon!

Scrapbook binders have their pros and cons, and the gap in a double page spread is definitely one of the cons, but I do enjoy all the photos together on this spread. I'm a big fan of the red, white and turquoise color scheme too! I like separation the title like this fam + ily, as ILY is also I Love You! <3 p="">

This time last year I was on maternity leave with nugget. Man how I miss those days! It's quite unfortunate that we do not have planned leave for parents as other countries do, but I was blessed to have a couple months off with him.

I documented those sweet moments we had last December. One of them is here. Also, my husband got me tickets to two Christmas concerts for our anniversary last year. Here is concert one, JohnnySWIM at the Ryman Auditorium. It was a great and fun show!

I have also shown this page before, but here it is again. I love a good gold and black color scheme for a New Year's page. And I'm still proud of that amazing charcuterie, so check out that eye candy too. The full page is quite simple, but I really love how it turned out!

Stay tuned for Christmas pages from Disneyworld soon! Disney + Christmas is sure to be amazing, as these are two of my favorite types of pages to create!

It's December 1st, so let's see those December Daily pages!!

Thanks for looking!
