Disney pals in NYC

I've had a little break from Christmas cards doing some layouts for my scrapbooks. Scrapbooking is much more difficult than cardmaking I find, but so satisfying and I do feel I am getting better at it, trying out different techniques.  My first efforts are not much better than my first cards I made.

We went to New York a coup of years ago and as we love Disney had to visit the Disney shop in Fifth Avenue. These images made me smile so I knew I had to create a layout with them. I used Black Magic Core'dinations for the background, sanding it to show the blue through. I cut the diamond paper to give it a zigzag edge and used the diamonds I cut off on the other side of the page, adding a bit of doodling. I used a Marianne die for the star circle. The lovely ribbon was wrapped round a pair of PJs I had last Christmas. As soon as I saw it my first thought was that will be good for a scrapbook page or two so expect to see that used again as I have lots of Florida Disney pages to make.

Marianne I must say you rock with layouts...it does not look as though you struggle. I love your layouts. I too find that layouts are hard...it is easier to decorate a 6x6 piece!
