1 Day!!!!!!!!!!

#1 - FINALLY Being Able To Scrap A Album!

Digital Scrapbook Album cover by Heather =)

This is gonna be the first major vacation I have taken since I started scrapbooking.  I always get so jealous when people talk about the awesome albums they have had printed from their vacations and whatnot.  I have made over 500 scrapbook pages, but none of them would make any sense being in a album together.  This vacation is finally my chance!!  I know I am gonna take a ridiculous amount of photos and I am sooo looking forward to getting them all scrapped and printed into a amazing album for me to share with everything and tell them about the fabulous time I had!

#2 - Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

 Image by travelwithkids

This party is the whole reason we are going on this trip.  I have heard soo many amazing things about MNSSHP!  The fireworks, the parade, the characters and the Headless Horseman!  Gah! It is going to be soo much fun!  I have even made Kendall, Heather and I shirts to wear!  We are gonna be pretty awesome =)

3 More Days. GAH!

#3 - Wearing My Custom Bow Minnie Ears =)

Image by ME!  =)

Yep.  It wasn't enough to just have a pair of Minnie ears.  So I made my own bows!!  I have been meaning to do this ever since I got the ears back at the beginning of the year but never got around to it.  Going to WDW was a perfect excuse to finally get them done.  You know I am gonna be wearing that zebra print one to Animal Kingdom right?! =)

#4 - Tea At The Grand Floridian

 Image from

I am far from being a "fancy" person, but I am sooooo excited to have tea at The Grand Floridian!!  There is just something so fun and unique about it and tea was one of the first things I told Heather we NEEDED to do!  Heather has never been either so it will be a awesome experience for both of us!!

#5 - Tower of Terror

 Image by Princess Ashley

This is another one of those rides that I have been on a bunch of times.  When I heard that that the ride car moves down a hall in this version I got so excited you would think this is my first time riding on this ride!  Tower of Terror is in my top 5 favorite rides at the Disneyland Resort and I know I am gonna love it at WDW too!

#6 - Photopass Photos

Image from

Photos!!  I LOVE photos!!  I think photopass photos are SUCH a great idea and it makes me sad that Disneyland, though they are getting better, just doesn't have the amount of photopass photographers and photos that WDW has.  I am gonna hit up every photo spot and every photographer I can!  TWICE!  HA!

*NEW* I Heart Fall and Fall Fail Add-On!

Can you believe it is fall already?  Definitely still feels like summer around here.  To get you ready to scrap all those awesome fall photos I have a new kit for you!  Remember, these are 20% off for the whole weekend!

I Heart Fall

And for those of us that don't have the tradtional fall:

Fall Fail Add-On

These kits so awesome together.  If you feel like you would love to have both of them, I have packaged them up into a fun fall bundle for 25% off!

Fall - The Bundle

I also packaged up just the alpha from I Heart Fall.  So if you don't want to get the whole kit, but you like the alpha then you can get it!

I Heart Fall - Alpha

Here is what my amazing CT did with the kit:

I hope you love it all as much as I do!  With that I am heading out on vacation next week!  See you all in October =)

OMG. 7 Days Left!

#7 - France

 Image by Peter E. Lee

I know I mentioned the World Showcase as a whole already, but I am really really looking forward to the France pavilion the most!  Every photo I have ever seen of this section is just GORGEOUS! I am not sure what there is to do or eat in this area, but I don't care because I am pretty sure I can just stare at it all day and be happy.  Do any of you have anything in particular that you love about the France area?

Sneak Peek!

There is also gonna be a fun little freebie for my newsletter subscribers! So if you haven't signed up (which you should anyway because you get a free alpha!) then hop to it!

8 Days To Go!

#8 - Figment Merchandise

 Image from

I am almost positive that I am gonna need to bring a extra suitcase just to cart home all the Figment stuff I plan on buying. LOL!  Say what you will about him, but I just LOVE Figment.  I have no idea why I love him so much.  Maybe because Figment merchandise is rare here in California or maybe because he is the only thing I can remember from the last time I went to WDW when I was 5.  I have no clue.  I just do.  I am definitely getting the Figment Pook-a-looz that is in the photo though!  Pook-a-looz and Figment.  2 of my favorite things!!  =)

#9 - Illuminations

 Image by Samantha Deckler

I actually don't really know anything about this show!  I know it is fireworks and it is on water?  Am I close?  I have seen quite a few photos and they all look so spectacular that I am sure this show is awesome.  You can't really go wrong with fireworks right? =)

#10 - Rock N Rollercoaster

 Image by Express Monorail.

I am gonna guess, just from looking at this photo, that this ride is pretty bad-ass.  I LOVE this photo and the area around the coaster building is just awesome!  This is another ride that I have heard nothing but good things about.  I am super excited that it goes upside-down!  Oh and that I get to listen to Aerosmith at the same time! Double bonus =)

#11 - The Tree Of Life

 Image by eggsalad78

The last of the WDW icons!  I know that I am gonna spend a ridiculous amount of time trying to photograph every inch of this tree.  I am probably gonna have to be dragged away from it.  Just sayin'.  Do any of you have a favorite part of the tree?  A part that I shouldn't miss photographing?  I would love to know!

I was so excited when I heard that these two are now out and about!  I love the show and I can't wait to meet them!  Not gonna lie though.  I am just a tad disappointed that I don't get to meet Agent P. LOL!  Any of my readers gotten the chance to meet them yet?

#13 - Vinylmation Trading!

 Image by Sam Howzit

I LOVE Vinylmations.  I have about 100 right now.  I am not sure if there are any out right now that are exclusive to WDW, but you know I will be on the lookout!  I even have a couple that I am gonna take with me to trade while I am there.  Which reminds me that I need to look up the locations of the places to trade! Yay!

This beautiful bus is gonna be the first glimpse of my Disney vacation!  Yes there is a plane ride, but once I see the DME I will officially be on my way to WDW!  I know I am gonna be super excited so I need to remember to get photos of the bus in-between my screaming and jumping up and down like a 5 year old.

I am really looking forward to this ride!  I know that may sound silly but it is as close as I am gonna get to riding the People Mover again.

I LOVE buffets. No doubt about it. Lol.  I am excited to eat at Boma for 2 reasons. 1) I have heard nothing but great things about the food. And 2) I get to check out the Animal Kingdom Lodge!  Should be fun times all around!

August Layouts

Just stopping by to show you all the layouts I made last month!  I think I am getting a little faster at designing now so I am hoping to get some more layouts done each month!

20 Days To Go!

#20 - Splash Mountain & Space Mountain

I know what you are thinking.  Umm, Tanya.... you have been on both those rides a billion times.  Yes, I know I have.  BUT, not with the seating they have at WDW.  Side by side on Splash Mountain?!  Single seating on Space Mountain?!  It is craziness I tell ya!  Do the rides feel any different?  Any readers who have been on both and can compare for me? =)

*NEW* September Mix-A-Kit and Basic Black Alpha!

Happy Friday everyone!  Can you believe we are already into September?!  Where in the heck did summer go?!  This month is gonna be a busy one for me so let's kick it off with some new products!  Yay!

In case you didn't see it, my September Mix-A-Kit items hit the store yesterday.  I had so much fun making this stuff that I ended up making FIVE products!  I just couldn't stop!  I definitely had Disney on the brain while designing this so that I could scrap my own photos from the Animation Academy.  Which of course I haven't done yet. lol.  So I present to you....

Sketch Me - The Elements

Sketch Me - Sketchy Stuff

Sketch Me - Academy Alpha

Sketch Me - The Patterns

Sketch Me - The Solids

Fun right?!  My creative team made some seriously awesome stuff with all the Sketch Me items too:

So not only do I have all that goodness in the shop this week but today I am also releasing a fun stash builder!  This alpha is simple, clean and can be used on almost every layout!

My Basics: Black Alpha

My creative team went crazy with this alpha!  I swear, they blow me away every week!

Thanks for looking and happy scrapping!!
