HOW FUN RIGHT?!!!
When I saw the circles - I remembered a had some "White Simple Circles" by Jillybean Soup left from a diecut sheet I had previously used, and after searching through (piles of) photos to scrap - I pick this one, of "my guys" on our Disney Fantasy Cruise from January 2014. I then knew I wanted to use this really cool base paper from Reminisce, and a brand new piece of 12x12 from Scrap Your Trip - "Magic Cruise" Then, realizing that the base paper I selected was a little thin, and would need some re-enforcement, I trimmed it a bit, and glued it to a piece
of "White Corrugated Sheet" by Fancy Pants Design.
I painted the anchor, and went around the edges with a Black Sharpie marker.
After cutting all the "flags" for the banner - I realized that the Red Polka Dot letters that I wanted to use, would not work on all of the banners/flags in my "DISNEY" Title - so I used black letters on the flags that were red. I also forgot to ink the flags/banners, before punching holes in their tops, stringing them with the bakers twine, and then adding them to my layout with foam 3D dots. To "fix" this, I carefully went around the edges with a fine tip black Sharpie marker.
