Erica's Craft Room - Disney Scrapbook

     Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by today. I have my very first Design Team project for Erica's Craft Room to share with you! 
     Friday is now scrapbook day and this weeks theme is Disney. My family and I had the opportunity to go to Disney World this summer. We all had a great time. My three year old is still talking about it and asking to go back. Even my 1 year old has come away with an obsession for Micky Mouse.
     I designed this layout on my Gypsy first. That little device takes all the guess work out of how big I should cut each piece. I just love it. Thank you Mom for the wonderful Christmas gift.
     Mickey is strategically placed here to cover up the kid who sat down by my kids right as I got both of them to look at me at the same time
     You can kind of tell in the first picture that I used foam squares but this photo lets you really see how much dimension this layout has. I used a couple different thicknesses of foam to really vary the heights and give it lots of visual interest.

Recipe:
Mickey and Friends
   Fence - 1.8" (3)
   Tree - 7"
   Sun - 4"
   Clouds - 1.5" (2), 2" (1)
   Mickey - 2.8"
American Crafts This & That Foam Squares
Pop Dots
American Crafts Sky Blue Pen
Jillibean Soup - Background
Would you believe all the other paper is scraps I had lying around!

     I hope you enjoyed my project, I'd love to hear what you think and have you become a follower! Be sure to pop on over to Erica's Craft Room to see more projects like mine.

Love it! Your Mickey Mouse turned out perfect! I love my gypsy too, I bought one for my sister for Christmas but it doesn't work so we have to send it back.

I am laughing at how you "strategically" used Mickey to cover that kid! LOL. Great idea. You used a lot of dimenion on this layout with the different heights and it is really a great job. TFS :)
