Scrapbook Monday- the last of the Disney album!
Well hello there! Hope you had a great weekend! We are celebrating Labor Day today, so the girls and I have a day off of school! YEA!!!! DH is also off work by some bizarre chance, so hopefully we will find something fun to do! Sleeping in is on the top of my list, after that, I'm good with just being able to do whatever! Might even get some crafty time squeezed in!
I want to apologize for my lack of creative posting and commenting lately. I have been battling a major head cold for a week. One minute I would feel fine and then suddenly it was like being hit by a truck. So I have been running on what little steam I had to keep up. But I'm almost 100% again, so look for me to be peeking in on your blogs soon!!
I am sharing the last of my Disney pages with you today. These are still from Animal Kingdom and are pretty simple. It is so amazing to me how easy MDS makes it to make a nice page with little effort. Even a fancy page doesn't take too much time! I have to admit that while I LOVE using MDS and it has made this album a piece of cake to finish in no time, I really miss my 'hands on' pages. So I will be sharing some paper crafted pages next time. I'm sure MDS will still be making an appearance from time to time!!
Even with a fast pass, we did have a bit of a wait for this
ride. It was SO worth it! Even though we knew that trenching and
natural barriers separated us from any real contact with most of the
animals, it was so amazing to be so close to the free
roaming animals. The ostriches even laid their eggs right next to
the road we were riding on!
All of the shows at Disney were fantastic, but we were
completely wowed by The Festival of the Lion King.
Amazing scenery, gorgeous costumes, and so much talent
in one show! The acrobatic 'monkeys' (actually real people
in costume) were fantastic and we all had chills as
the cast sang the grand finale song!
As we were preparing to leave, I happened to glance over
at a couple who had stopped on a bridge and were looking
at the trees. They were filled with hundreds of white birds,
who were coming in to roost for the evening. We learned from
a cast member that they were native birds and were free to
come and go as they pleased. They simply chose to roost
in this spot. Again, we were so impressed with Disney's
efforts to make this a true place of conservation.
Well, that wraps up my little peek into our summer vacation. I hope you enjoyed the pages and maybe found a layout to use, or bit of inspiration from them. Have a wonderful week and happy crafting!!
