Scrappy Monday with My Creative Time: Goofin' Around

by Veronica

Howdy! Today is the very FIRST installment of the new My Creative Time segment dedicated to scrapbook layouts! I really do love to scrapbook, but always seem to find myself creating cards or home decor items. For today's project, I'm adding another page to the scrapbook that documents the Disney World trip my (now) husband and I took in October 2010 (which *cough* still isn't finished).

Confession time: I haven't even THOUGHT about starting our wedding album and we'll be celebrating our first anniversary in June. In fact, the only pictures I have PRINTED from our wedding are those that other people have given me. I know, I know...terrible.

This scrapbook page is 12x12 and is inspired by the following sketch. You'll notice that I didn't use three pictures, I don't have tags in my title, nor did I use any flowers. When following a sketch, you DO NOT have to follow it exactly! The sketch should be used as inspiration - a starting point - for your project. Use your own interpretation of the elements in the sketch and make it your own!

I just love the pictures I took of the Hubs with Goofy in Animal Kingdom. As the journaling block states, I really thought that I would have to convince Duane to pose with the characters for me. But he was all too willing to wait his turn behind all the 5-year-olds and then give Goofy a giant hug and a beaming smile for the photo.

The title of this page was created using Mini Monograms ("Just", "Around") and Mickey Font ("Goofin") Cricut Cartridges. The papers are from various Disney paper pads and the Goofy and camera 3D stickers are from a Disney package purchased at my local Debbie's Dollar.

Want to play along with this Sketch Challenge? Create your layout (it can be ANY size) and link up over at Emma's blog! Can't wait to see what you create!

I hope you were inspired!
