Disney~Pixar Blog Hop Day 1

Thank you for hopping with us again for another installment of the Original Disney~Pixar blog hop!  We love that you keep coming back to see what new and exciting things we come up with!  Shawn and I are very lucky to have such amazing and talented women who continue to want to be a part of this.  You should be arriving here from Shawn's blog Crafty Chics Blog who was the very first stop for the hop today. 


For my project today I decided to try my hand at a photo tile.  I purchased a stack of 4X4 ceramic tiles at Home Depot quite some time ago and they've been collecting dust waiting for me to do something with them.  Here is what I came up with using a photo of my family at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World from our last trip in July. 




I will definitely be making some more of these!  I just used some of my Disney scrap paper and adhered it to the tile with Mod Podge.  Then placed my matted photo onto top with another layer of Modge Podge.  After everything dried, I applied one more coat of the Modge Podge.  Before adding the ribbon, twine and embellishments I sprayed a clear top coat over the picture and papers.  I love the little Mickey head embellishment.  The metal rimmed Mickey head is by EK Success and the "Moments" embellishment was given to me in an assortment of leftovers by a scrapping friend.  It fit perfectly on top of the Mickey and I like what it added. 
My blog candy for today is generously being donated by the talented and lovely Kristal from Getting Cricky .  Thank you Kristal!!  If you are picked as a winner of my blog candy you will get to pick ONE (single set) set of stamps from Kristal's online store
In order to be eligible for my blog candy you must be a follower and leave a comment on this post by 11:59 PM EST Monday, November 21, 2011 (My Birthday!!!!!)   Winner will be announced on Tuesday, November 22nd.  I will use Random Org to draw the winner and they will have one week to contact me and claim their prize.

We also have a GRAND PRIZE for this Blog Hop donated by ContainYa Crafts! You can have YOUR CHOICE of a Scrap'n Tote or a Scrap'n Easel! Each blog in this two day hop has a special letter, and when all of the letters are put together they spell out a secret phrase.

My letter for today is....A

Once you have stopped at each blog in the hop (both days) and collected all of the letters, simply email the phrase they create to bloghopcontests@gmail.com. All entries must be in by Midnight on Monday, November 21st. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, November 22nd at Crafty Chics Blog .

Now I send you off to Tami's Craft Connection to see what she has waiting for you!  Don't forget to come back tomorrow for Day 2 of this edition of the Original Disney~Pixar Blog Hop!

Hi Melissa! First, before I forget, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I hope the year brings you more magical moments!

Second, THANK YOU for co-hosting this hop again with Shawn. You two gals do hops up right!

And finally (but not least!!), your tile is super sweet -- what a nice idea and use for a regular ol' tile!!! I do agree that adding the MOMENTS below your M adds a lot. NICE!

Great idea for a project! What a wonderful way to remember your trip! I love the twine and the way you used the Mickey head with the metal embellishment - inspired!
And since your birthday will end this fun hop, I'll wish you a birthday full of dreams come true, in the spirit of Disney!
