Mickey and Minnie

Firstly welcome to all my lovely new followers and thank you so much for your sweet comments. This is my second post for today and it's a layout for a change. This is one of the photos we took on our recent holiday to Florida. As soon as I set it as a desktop background I felt it was crying out for a scrapbook page. The photo was taken at a show which is all about believing that dreams can come true. The sketch at Everybody Art was rotated and became perfect for the photo. The background paper is HOTP and the blue is K&Co. I bought a die cut mat pad from K&Co in America and used it to layer the pic. Words are rub ons and I added some of my fave raffia lace and MS punched hearts to keep this CAS. I am always tempted to add more to scrapbook pages but have to remind myself that the pic must be the focus of the page.

I would also like to enter it into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts Love is in the air
Sweet Stampin Use a photograph
Secret Crafter With love
Crafts 4 Eternity Colour challenge
Moving along with the times Make your dream come true
