Make it Monday - January Challenge at The Memory Nest

It's time for a  "Make it Monday" Challenge over at The Memory Nest
and my FIRST post as part of this very talented Design Team! 

Leslie came up with a great sketch, inspired by Simple Stories, and that is all I needed to hear to get my brain in gear and back into "Scrappy Mode" after a crazy Holiday season, and a week away between Christmas and New Years!  I was starting to get - "SWS's" - or -  "Scrappy Withdrawal Shakes!" - and this Sketch arrived in my Inbox just in time!  LOL!  ( Thanks Leslie!)

So, I don't know about you - but when I think of Simple Stories - I automatically think of their 
"SAY CHEESE" Collection first.  The "split page" of the sketch made me pull out my big 12 x 12 paper pack, as I knew I had a few of those in there - that I wasn't sure what to do with!

(Speaking of Simple Stories - have you seen the "sneak peeks" of their BRAND NEW -
 SAY CHEESE II line being released at CHA?? - O.M.G! - LOVE IT!! NEED IT!) 

I also grabbed "some" of the embellishments that belong with the line - and dug out 2 photos from our 2012 First Trip to Disneyland.

Here is my take on the sketch:

 Those of you who have visited here before already know that I am not a "chronological scrapper."  I am more of a "scrap what I feel scrapper," and therefore, I will NEVER be DONE!
These photos are from our 30th Anniversary Trip to Disneyland.  It was our first trip there, and we had a "Magical Time!"  We spent a few days there before we embarked on a 
14 night cruise on The Disney Wonder to Hawaii!   

 The date of our visit in the photos above was 10/11/12 - so cool! What a great place to spend it and I am happy I was also able to document it too!
*PS - am I the only one who noticed that the ears on the Mickey Wheel were positioned perfectly behind my husband's head, by the CM that took our photo?!! LOL!! LOVE IT!

And one last close up for you - I love using all of the coordinating embellies that Simple Stories has for their collection and mixing in a few others while I am at it too!
