The Memory Nest "MIM" #46 "Disney Crusin' "

Happy MONDAY everyone!   It is time for The Memory Nest's 2nd Sketch Challenge of August!

Leslie has given us another really COOL Sketch to work with this month!
For FULL Challenge DETAILS and PRIZE info - please visit THE MEMORY NEST BLOG!


HOW FUN RIGHT?!!!



When I saw the circles - I remembered a had some "White Simple Circles" by Jillybean Soup left from a diecut sheet I had previously used, and after searching through (piles of) photos to scrap - I pick this one, of "my guys" on our Disney Fantasy Cruise from January 2014.   I then knew I wanted to use this really cool base paper from Reminisce, and a brand new piece of 12x12 from Scrap Your Trip - "Magic Cruise"  Then, realizing that the base paper I selected was a little thin, and would need some re-enforcement, I trimmed it a bit, and glued it to a piece 
of "White Corrugated Sheet" by Fancy Pants Design.
I painted the anchor, and went around the edges with a Black Sharpie marker.


I decided to make a pocket out of the photo and mat.  I used 2 sided foam tape along the sides and the bottom, leaving the top open.  This allowed me to journal on a tag I cut out using a Tim Holtz die, and slip it in the pocket.  I wrote a little about out trip on it - and embellished it with paper, and a little life preserver Mickey head that I fussy cut out, and added with a pop dot to the tag.
I used a circle punch to cut out the cute little Mickey heads and DCL Logos from the Scrap Your Trip paper. I inked their edges, and then added them to the inside of the circle grid, using foam dots.
After cutting all the "flags" for the banner - I realized that the Red Polka Dot letters that I wanted to use, would not work on all of the banners/flags in my "DISNEY" Title - so I used black letters on the flags that were red.  I also forgot to ink the flags/banners, before punching holes in their tops, stringing them with the bakers twine, and then adding them to my layout with foam 3D dots.   To "fix" this, I carefully went around the edges with a fine tip black Sharpie marker.
