November Scrap Our Stash WORD Challenge "ALBUMS" - "The Big Cheese"

It is time for Scrap-Our Stash's November word challenge - ALBUMS !!  I am sure you will have lots of creative fun with this one!! Give it a try - I hope you will play along with us!

And here is my Design Team Inspiration Layout for you:

I call this layout "The Big Cheese!" since Capt Mickey is in the center of the photo!  This was taken on our January 2014 Disney Fantasy Cruise to the Eastern Caribbean.  I love to try to use the big 8x10" photos that I have from some of our Disney Cruises on these word challenges.  Since the photos take up so much of the page, I find using the WORD CHALLENGE for the embellishments on my layout really works.   Here is what I ended up using:
A - Arrows / Anchor / Adirondack Alcohol Ink / Admission Ticket
L - Lined Simple Story Paper / Letters / Layers
B - Brads / Bazzill Cardstock / Banners
U - Letter "U" in CrUise
M - Metal Anchor / Metal Brads / Mickey Mouse Ears
S - Stickers / Stars / Simple Stories Say Cheese and Say Cheese 2

I really love these word challenges - they help to get my creative "Mojo" flowing, and help me to use up some of the "Stash" that I've been accumulating.  I hope you will play along with us at Scrap Our Stash this month!!

Here are some close ups of all the little elements on the layout - I really LOVE these 2 Simple Stories "Say Cheese" Lines - they are just so "DISNEY!"

This "Anchor" was originally silver - but I had some Ranger Gold Alcohol Ink, and I tarnished it a bit with it to make it blend in better.

Speaking of GOLD - I just LOVE the shiny GOLD accents in this paper line!

The "U" in ALBUMS, was really my only "Challenge" in this Challenge, but by using a CRUISE photo, I was able to use a "U" in the title of the Layout and make it work!

Here are a few more close ups for you:

Thanks for stopping by - I hope I've inspired you to play along with us at Scrap Our Stash - Check out all the details on the SOS Blog and see what this month's prize is too!!
