Here are the Disney kits you have been looking for!

I'll get right to it! Images are linked.

Here's a great Mickey Freebie from Scrapping 'til Dawn:

and an adorable freebie add on as well:

Here is an awesome Nemo Kit I found for sale at Pretty Scrappy

I'm buying this kit for sure! It will make some ROCKIN' Mickey pages!! This one is from 3 Pixel Chicks:

Here are some cute Lilo & Stitch papers from MeeGee Designs. I'm not exactly sure what the deal is with designers using clipart in their designs, but as far as I know, if it is a freebie, it is OK. If I find things with clip art that I REALLY like, I'm posting them. If I find out that's a non-no, I'll stop! :)

Here's another kit from Irish Eyes Designs that would be great for Disney Cruise photos. Someday I'm going to go on one of these cruises, I swear!!

Haynay did some nice red papers for us Disney lovers:
And last, but not least, here are some great Winnie the Pooh stickers by Unleashed Scraps:

HSM Stuff

I think these are really cool! From Interdimensional Scrapper

WOW -- I'm so behind! Here's a little about what I've been up to...

Whew! I'm sorry I'm so behind on this blogging thing. I found tons of great Disney stuff in the past week and I kept meaning to post it, but then life just got away from me. We had swim classes and Magic Meets (a huge gathering of crazed Disney fans that get together in PA of all places), a trip to Hershey Park, a dog show, and I don't even know what else in there!

Anyway, I haven't shared much about me on this blog yet, and I guess maybe I should. I think that is a lot of the reason I frequent some of the blogs I do, because I like the person publishing them, not just for the freebies or links (although I do LOVE freebies!). So, I guess if I want people to LIKE me, they might need to know a little about me! So, since I mentioned my crazy schedule, here are a few photos form the last week or so, so you can see what I've been up to:

My son AJ and husband Scott meeting Mike Scopa at Magic Meets (Scopa is a celebrity among Disney freaks like me, he is a cohost on the WDW Today podcast, my favorite Disney podcast!)

AJ getting a WDWRadio lanyard from another Disney fan celebrity -- Lou Mongello!!
Having fun at Hershey Park!
Besides being a Disney geek and digital scrapbooker, I also have another obscure hobby -- Dog Agility. I haven't been participating in dog shows as much lately (gas prices and saving all of my $$ for Disney trips have interfered with my dog show budget!), but I did go to a local one this past weekend. It was sponsored by the club that I teach classes for, so I guess that's a good reason for me to go!

My dog Porter (yes, he's named after beer, just like my first dog Lager!) and I competed in three events and he qualified in two of them! That's a pretty good day for me and Porter. We tend to go to shows and come home with nothing a lot, so two Q's out of three is a real accomplishment for us! The venue we competed in this weekend is called DOCNA. It is a relatively new and FUN agility venue. We had a blast competing and here is a picture of us running:

I have a video clip, too, but i can't figure out how to post it. If I figure that out, I'll post the video sometime, too. Anyway, that's a little about what has been going on here in the past week. Hope I didn't bore you to death! I'll go root through my bookmarks and downloads now to dig up all those Disney freebies and kits I spotted for you this week and post those next! Enjoy!

A Whole Lot of Disney Stuff

Whew! I have stumbled on quite a few Disney freebies and kits this week. This might be a LONG post! Let's start with these two little gems from Designs by Ellie:

Then we have lots more animals for those AK pages at Grafx4All: (the link will take you to her page with all of the animal downloads, there are 8 kits so far, not all pictured here):

and an adorable AK kit to purchase HERE:

Then there's this little freebie gem from My Everything -- I can't wait to use this one!!

And here's a new one that isn't a freebie, but is a must-have for anyone doing a princess page (IMO). It is called "No Prince required" by Ziggle Designs. How cute is that? It even has little mice and birds in it!! You can buy it at Scrap Orchard. Here's a picture of it!

I plan to buy it today, even though I don't have any little princesses. I'll find a way to use it, even if I have to get MY pictures with the princesses next time I go to Disney World! Mommies can be princesses, too, right??

And then I also found these Winne the Pooh FREEBIE papers from Dawn. Aren't they adorable?

A Little About me and a Speed Scrap Layout!

This is a layout I did for last night's speed scrap at ScrapMatters. I wanted to scrap these pictures of my son and the dogs (my three boys, as I call them) while the memory was fresh in my head. My son AJ is 3.5 and LOVEs to get dirty. My dogs Lager and Porter are 9 and 8 years old respectievly and they, too, like to get dirty! What a perfect combination! So, I decided to load them all into the van and take them to a beautifful park near our home where they could romp and play in the water and dirt to their hearts content.

I took some pictures of the park that day, too. I want to do a page of those as well, but I didn't get to that yet! The area of the stream we were playing in is right under and old, authentic wooden covered bridge! How cool is that? The underside of the bridge is beautiful and hearing cars creak across it while you are sitting underneath it is really cool. I don't think there are a lot of covered bridges left around, so this is probably kind of a unique experience. I"ll have to remember to include that tidbit when I journal the page with the bridge photos!

Thanks for reading a little bit about me! I'll be back again soon with some more awseome Disney freebies!

Disney Character Names FREEBIE!!

I had fun playing with the Atomic Cupcake gel action and I decided to make these cool character name gellie titles for you! I used them for a challenge on the DIS last week and now I'm offering them here. If you do a layout using one of them, I would LOVE to see it! If you have any suggestions for other names you'd like to see, let me know. I think I might do an alpha like this, too, once I figure out how to do it right!! Enjoy the freebie!!

A layout and a Polynesian/Adventureland kit idea

Here is a layout I did a little while ago that I just love. It is an example of a LO using a kit that personifies some Disney stuff for me without being a "Disney" kit. I love Dole Whips and we try to get at least every time we go to the World! On this particular trip, we introduced my MIL to the delicious Dole Whip, so I made sure to get pictures of all of us enjoying our frosty treats! When I stumbled on Ellie Lash's Waiamea kit, it just screamed DOLE WHIPS at me!! I'm sure it could also be used for Beach Club and Polynesian LO's as well. Here is the LO (click pic for credits):
and here is a link to Ellie's kit in the scrapmatters store:
