Magic Memories from Kellybell Designs

One of the most photographed spots at Walt Disneyworld is Cinderella's Castle in Magic Kingdom.  If you love the PhotoPass photographers, you can get all sorts of beautiful family photos and special shots along Main Street and in front of the castle.  And for all those photos, you're going to need several different Disney scrapping kits to capture the magic in all those pictures.  Today, Kelly is announcing a new collection that's perfect for Magic Kingdom.  The color palette is so pretty and unique.  The new collection is called...

Just look at that gorgeous castle element.  Wow, so gorgeous!  Inside this kit you'll also find mouse ear balloons, camera, flairs, flowers, stars, arrows, crown, buttons, flowers, journal tags, banner, hearts and so much more.  The papers are a neat mixture of stripes, chevrons and colorful patterns.  There's a full blue alpha included too.

Check out these amazing word art titles.  They'd be perfect for your photos at the main entrance or castle at Magic Kingdom.

No collection would be complete without the addition of a pack of page starters and paper stacks.  These are so invaluable when you are scrapping your layouts because they provide such a quick start and a finished look to your pages.  Make sure you add them to your shopping cart.

All of Kellybell Designs collections can be found at www.KellybellDesigns.com.  Hope you enjoyed shopping during Kelly's birthday sale.  This is another set that you'll want to include in your Disney stash!

If you'd like the see the entire set of layouts created with this collection from the Creative Team, you can go to Kelly's Blog or find them on Kelly's Facebook page.  Here's a page that I scrapped with 'Magic Memories' using a photo of us in front of the castle at Magic Kingdom.

If you're a regular follower of Kellybell Designs, you know the freebie candy is always located at the end of the blog post.  And you won't be disappointed.  Kelly's CT has 3 great freebies for you today.  You'll find them by visiting Lisa's Blog, JessicaK's Blog, and Jennifer's Blog.  Have a great weekend!!

April Kellybell Blog Challenge

It's another new month and time for the next  Kellybell Designs Blog Challenge.  This month's theme focuses on Disney rides.  There's so many fun rides to choose from.... everything from the fast, spinning thrills of Space Mountain and Rock N Roller Coaster to the peaceful and sweet rides of Dumbo and It's A Small World.  So sort through your photos from all the rides and figure out what you'd like to scrap for the challenge this month.

Here's the participation prize you'll receive this month for playing along.  It was made by CT Member Jenn using The Splash Patch kit.  Everyone who submits a layout will receive a participation prize.  And the most outstanding layout will receive a gift certificate to Kelly's store.

Here are the rules and instruction to participation in the Monthly Blog Challenge:
  • Scrap a page showcasing any Disney ride.  This can be from any of the parks.  You can use your Photopass ride photos, photos of signs and decorations from the ride, or your family enjoying the ride.  Lot's of ways to be creative here!
  • You can use as many photos as you want and include as many elements and papers that you choose.  We want to see your creativity sparkle!
  • Layouts should be made with 100% Kellybell products or freebies (you are allowed to use a template from another designer).  You are welcome to submit more than 1 layout.
  • Post your layout into the Challenges Gallery at Kellybell Designs by midnight EST April 30th.  Participation prizes will be sent to the email address you have listed with Kelly's gallery.
The most outstanding layout will be announced the first week of May.  That's also when the participation prizes will be sent out.  

Take a look at these kits below that might be helpful for scrapping your challenge layout.

Can't wait to see what you might scrap this month.  Here is my page highlighting the Pirates Of The Caribbean ride, one of my boys favorites.
