Welcome to Day 1 of our second go around of the Disney/Pixar Blog Hop! Shawn and I were thrilled with the success of our first hop and we are very excited to be back with all of you again with an even larger group of talented ladies! You should be arriving here from the amazingly talented Kathy of Kathy's Cozies. I am a proud owner of one of her beautiful Cricut Cozies...her workmanship is flawless! If you just happened to stumbled across my blog and would like to start at the very beginning, it's a very good place to start, (my homage to Mary Poppins!) you will need to go to Shawn's blog Crafty Chics Blog.
Here is my Expedition Everest layout I created! 2010 was the year that marked Tanner being tall enough to ride Expedition Everest! Parker is not a fan of this ride at all so Daddy took Tanner for his first ride just the two of them. The look on his face is priceless! The second I saw the Campin' Critters cartridge I KNEW I had to have it for the Yeti! So here is my Disney layout done without a single "Disney" cartridge!
(please click on photo to enlarge)
Hard to see the stitching between patterned papers and around the top of the layout without enlarging.
I thought the Liquid Applique gave the Yeti a cool look!
His eyes are a sparkly glowing looking embellishment by Jolee's (thanks Steph!)
Gotta love this Yeti X-ING sign!
How cute is this little raccoon hiding from the Yeti!
I think that the inking and stitching on the photo mats added a lot to the layout.

Did you notice that I used my new Scrap 'n Easel to display my 2 page layout on for picture taking? I also used it during the creative process of this layout which was fabulous! I loved being able to move my embellishment elements around and place them temporarily with the magnets until I got them exactly where I wanted them before applying adhesive! One other thing worth mentioning is that these pieces I was working with were multi-layered and heavy and the magnets that come with the Scrap 'n Easel held them tight in place on the board! LOVE IT!!!!
Next up is my Pinocchio card! Pinocchio is one of my all time favorite Disney movies and I was so happy to see it released on the Disney Classics Cricut cartridge!
