Bonkers for Beignets!

My boys are indeed bonkers for beignets!  So much so that we haven't been able to lure them away to a different hotel from Port Orleans for our last 4 trips!  Between the beignets for breakfast (and sometimes late night snack!) from the Sassagoula food court and the sea serpent water slide at the pool...it has been a tough task convincing them that it's time to switch to a different resort for our next trip! 

This LO has pictures from one of our 2008 trips.  You will notice Tanner's face is a little beat up.  We arrived in Florida by vehicle late the night before our check in date at Disney so we stayed just off property at a Marriott.  We walked outside to their food court to get some pizza for dinner and while I was inside placing our food order Tanner and Parker were running around and Tanner ran smack dab into a huge cement pillar!  You know the first words out of my mouth were "OMG!  All of our pictures are going to be ruined!!!!"  Then I quickly asked if he was okay!  :)  Come on!  Admit it...all of you scrapbookers can relate!  Anyways, these pictures were taken almost a week after it happened and he was still looking pretty rough! 


This is a 2 page LO...you can click on it to view it larger if you would like.



I used Winter Woodland cartridge to weld the letters to make the word "Beignets".  I LOVE this font!  The only pain was trying to get a good match with the shadowing.  It took some playing around, but I finally got it match up pretty good.  

The "BONKERS 4" was cut from Mickey font.  The patterned paper is from my HUGE stash of Disney paper and I used one of the Mickey head shaped gems from EK Success for the dot on the "i". 

For those of you who do not know what beignets are:

beignet (pronounced ben-yay)  A traditional New Orleans yeast pastry that is deep-fried and served hot with a generous dusting of confectioners' sugar. The name comes from the French word for "fritter."

Have a terrific Tuesday!

This is a great layout and who doesn't love Beignets I thought they were a common food in the U.S. Every time we have travelled to the U.S my children always love to have them.

Cute & fun layout! And what a wild story - OMG! Thank goodness Tanner was okay since this was the start of your trip and it wasn't more serious. But it sure does provide funny memories later on. Thanks for sharing.
