New Music

Hi - I am trying to create a new Disney Music playlist so please "pardon my dust" if you can't hear the usual Disney Songs ... There is a new list at the bottom where the other one was but I need to re-create the list! I am getting there!!
The American Adventure Finale song is one of my favourite Disney World songs and always reminds me of my trip!!
Don't forget to vote for July's Challenge - voting closes tomorrow!

"Making a Splash" He's the Bomb by Julia

This is Julia's entry for my challenge - He's the Bomb - what a great layout! I love the way that the photos go down in this curved shape, the colours are great and work really well with the photos, I love the use of stickles around the layout too which give it a bit of watery sparkle! The water splats are sizzix and they too work really well. Thank You and Good Luck xx

"Making a Splash" Water Fun by Debra

This is Debra's 4th entry - "Water Fun" from the DisneyWater Parks. I love the circles on here creating the Mickey shape - this looks like the family water raft ride like I went on at Blizzard Beach - NEVER AGAIN!!! I love the positioning of the photos and the cute Goofy Embellishment too!! The background to this is actually handpainted as this design is on a 12"x12" canvas that hangs on Debra's wall - an excellent idea to display a beautiful creative layout, Thank You and Good Luck xx

"Making a Splash" Manatees by Debra

This is Debra's 3rd entry for my Challenge - Manatees - at SeaWorld - this is a fabulous layout which shows these beautiful manatees, The swirls and the colours make it very relaxing to look at - just like it is in real life watching them swim around... Thank You and Good Luck xx

"Making a Splash" Catastrophe Canyon by Karen

This is Karen's 2nd Entry - and believe me - if you havent been on this before - well you can't imagine any more water than this!! This is from Disneyland Paris - part of the back lot tour... and every time I go on it - I always have to make sure that I sit on the side of the vehicle so that I don't get WET!!! This is a really great layout - and I love the way that the title goes round - like the way that lorry falls down, catches fire and then this torrent of water pours out! Thank You and Good Luck xx

"Making a Splash" Les Pays Des Contes De Fees By Karen

This is Karen's 1st Entry to my Challenge... The Beautiful Storybook Ride in Disneyland Paris...This is one of my favourite rides and although I have been to DLP 8 times - I have only been on this a couple of times as they close it if it rains or it is really icy as it is an outside water boat ride! (last time I went it was completely iced over!!) Anyway - this is a beautiful layout - which shows all the lovely little scenes that you pass in the little boat. I love the wavy line at the top - a bit like bobbing along on the boat and The font that has been chosen goes really well. Thank You and Good Luck xx

Louise was really lucky to do the "Dine with Shamu" Something we would all love to do one day!!

This is the layout that my little boy Joshua aged 9 has done for my challenge - he loves scrapbooking and also loves Splash Mountain! He created all this himself, chose the photos, papers ( raided my shop!!) - the only thing I did was cut and mount the photos! Bless him! Obviously he hasnt "officially" entered the challenge - but he does like to take part when we have the time! LOL!!
Pop Century - Water Fun - This is my boys in the Hippy Dippy pool at the Disney Hotel - they had such alot of fun splashing around! I really enjoyed creating this bright and colourful layout - I printed off the "Pop" logo from the internet onto photo paper!! Hope you like it, xx

"Making a Splash" Splash Mountain by Kirsteen

This is Kirsteen's 3rd entry for my Challenge "Splash Mountain" Zip a dee doo dah!!! I have only been on this once!! Never again! I thought I was going to fall out!! So they were very brave to go on this!! Don't let the cute music fool you!! This is a brilliant layout and the colours of the papers in the background match the sky and the mountain in the photo perfectly. I love the little pieces of ribbon tied around the lettering - it is very effective and all the words and the journalling just add to this lovely layout! ( what a contrast the weather looks from the previous Sunshine State layout!) Thank You and Good Luck xx

"Making a Splash" H2oh by Kirsteen

This is Kirsteen's 2nd entry for my Challenge - H2oh! Well - certainly alot of water here!! I love this layout - it's great! It must have taken such alot of time to do - cutting the photos into all those squares - but the effect is stunning and it is well worth the effort to do. Photos taken from their Villa in Orlando, The background colour is a gorgeous swimming pool blue which goes lovely with the pool water, the squares give the illusion of looking out from the swimming pool through the glass frame. Thank You and Good Luck xx

"Making a Splash" Sunshine State by Kirsteen

This is my 1st entry this month for my new Challenge - by Kirsteen - and I just love it!! When we go to the "Sunshine State" we do expect the weather to be lovely - but I just love the black sky which is very menacing looking against the backdrop of Terror Tower - very apt!
