Disneyland 2016 - I am grateful!

Hi everyone!  I've decided to play along with 3 FUN Challenge Blogs this month - all on one layout!  

First - I love the sketch Challenge offered by  Stuck?! Sketches  
Here is the sketch:

And - I am also joining in the FUN over at the Lasting Memories Layout Challenge Blog!
They have a Tic Tac Toe Challenge going on this month and it worked perfectly with the Simple Stories "I Am" collection that I wanted to use!  Here is their challenge:
I decided to use the center line, and incorporated Enamel Dots, Polka Dot Paper, and Hearts on my layout.

Next up is the challenge from "The Studio Challenges Blog"  Their challenge is : "Review the Year - instead of looking forward to the new year ahead, I want you to look back at the year you have just had! It could be a review of the whole year, something special that happened or your favourite thing about the year, or maybe it's one you would rather forget! it's up to you!"

Last year brought major changes to our family and every day lives, but I chose to focus on the love we all have for each other, our good health, and our love of travel.  I selected a photo of my hubby and I, enjoying breakfast on our last day in Disneyland, after we cruised through the Panama Canal on the Disney Wonder.  What an awesome adventure! I titled the layout "I am grateful" since I truly am grateful for all the blessing we have been given.

Here is my take on the 3 challenges:
I used lots of "stuff" from my stash of Simple Stories "I Am" Collection and had a blast layering lots of elements!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  And THANKS to those 3 great blogs for the fun challenges!
