All Together Now by Kellybell Designs

Meeting the characters at Disney World is an absolute blast! The hugs, the smiles, the autographs.... it's all part of the magic! The Character Spot inside Epcot is probably THE best place to get to meet the Fab 5 characters. You know them -- Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto. You take tons of photos and now you have to figure out how to scrap them! Today Kelly is releasing a new kit that pulls all 5 characters together. It's called...


Kelly's captured the magic of each character including Mickey's red shorts and yellow shoes, Minnie's red and white polka dot dress and bow, Goofy's green hat and orange shirt, Donald's blue cap and shirt, and Pluto's paw print and dog tag. There's 15 papers in all the classic colors and a fabulous yellow alpha that just rocks!! Take a look at the word art titles that Kelly's created for you.

There's so many possibilities with this kit. Make sure you stop by Kellybell's Store to pick up the kit and matching word art pack. Remember, this kit is on sale for 25% off this weekend only!!

Here's what I scrapped with 'All Together Now'.  I loved the papers for Minnie Mouse.  My favorite is the red and white polka dot paper.  The colors and elements were a perfect match for Minnie.

Then I flipped the template and made the second page to match Mickey Mouse!

And now for some Fab Freebies for you! You know you love them! First, start at Jenn's Blog to pick up a rockin' paper stack, then to Julie's Blog to grab her cool cluster frame, and ending up at Kellybell's Blog to pick up her amazing Quick Page and to buy this awesome kit!

My freebie for you is a word art title from Epcot's Character Spot.  Have a fabulous day and happy scrapping!!

Template #44 and Mousescrappers Template Challenge #45!

I know, I know.... it's been over a month since I've given away a freebie template.  I've been doing tons of scrapping but not making any templates.  Sigh!  Luckily, my template mojo has returned from it's summer vacation and we are back in business!  Yipee for you! 

First we'll start off with Template #44.  This was from the Mousescrappers 2nd Anniversary challenges.  I really wanted to have some vertical paper blocks on the page.  Especially for scrapping my layout at Chef Mickeys.  I just love red and black papers!

And here is your template. 

Next, I'm hosting the Mousescrappers Template Challenge today.  Mousescrappers has a new template challenge starting every Saturday!  Lately I've seen so many layouts that have split papers that are angled and zig zagged.  So I knew that's the kind of template I wanted to have for the challenge.  This is the layout I made for Morroco.  Natalie's paper textures were fabulous and the slanted papers were a fabulous way to show off her elegant paper patterns.

To grab this template, head on over to the Mousescrapper Template Challenge #74 to download this file and to post your layouts.  Have fun experimenting with your paper patterns.  Enjoy and happy scrapping!

A Kit For Morroco

A Whole New World.... That's the theme for Natalie's newest kit.  With inspiration from Morocco and the Aladdin movie, this kit is deep in colors and textures!  Natalie is famous for her fabulous selection of papers in each kit, and this one is one of my newest favorites!  She's filled this kit with some Moroccan buildings, scarves, fez, tamborine, genie lamp, peacock feathers and much more.  You gotta see this kit!

Head on over to Natalie's Blog and scoop up this kit and her matching freebie.  I loved all the papers Natalie created.  I thought they all flowed together well, especially the patterned ones.  She matched the colors and spirit of Morocco just perfectly.

And of course, all the colors blend well with Jasmine, Aladdin and Jafar!  The flowers are wonderfully textured so they add a nice dimension to the page.  And look at her Abu element - how can you not love that little monkey!!

For your freebie today, I made you a Morocco word art title.  Hope you like it!  Make sure you stop by  Lisa's Blog, Cynthia's Blog and Sandy's Blog to grab their awesome freebies too!!  Enjoy and happy scrapping!
