Back from St. Paul and Fiskateer Fun!!!


Hello everyone!


I am back from Minnesota from a fun weekend with May and many Fiskateer friends. What a great time I had! It was so much fun meeting May in person for the very first time! She was warm, fun, friendly, and had so much time to share with Fiskateers and non-Fiskateers alike! I want to send May a special thanks for all the time she put into planning this event, her travel time, and of course all the wrap up time she will have when she returns home. I am sure her family missed her dearly and I am grateful to have gotten the opportunity to attend the event and meet May! I also want to put in a plug for the Scrapbook Shop in St. Paul, Minnesota. What a wonderful store! Man, talk about having a great stock of anything Fiskars or Fiskars brands. Wow! That store was so neatly arranged and it was so easy to find everything. The staff were great and boy did they find us some yummy italian food for dinner both nights! Thanks Rhonda and staff for hosting such a fun event for all!


This week I will show you some of the things I created while at the crops I attended. Many are Disney themed layouts from our trip there last fall. But I have set a goal to try to use papers that ARE NOT Disney related. I think when you look only for the Disney stuff you can get limited as to what you can find that matches with what photos you have. So I wanted to mix it all up and share how fun it can be to use any line and make it fun for Disney.


So above you can see a layout featuring Snow White. The Heidi Grace We Are Family collection were the perfect colors to highlight Snow White. I used two sheets from that line plus the yellow paper in the background is from the Lil' Davis brand. I also used chipboard and rub ons from the We Are Family collection. The colors just seemed to be a perfect match and as much as the photos are singing and dancing, I also wanted paper that would sing and dance and this was perfect!!!


Stay tuned throughout the week to get a peek of the other projects I completed during my time in St. Paul! Oh, and just so you keep checking I just might post some type of a contest this week.......so keep checking back! I did get some fun stuff from May and I just feel like sharing...

I just love what you did with those Disney pictures...amazingly enuf they pop out more using "non Disney" paper. Your words will surely bring back memories years to come!

That is so very pretty! We were having that conversation at the store.....about how you don't have to have "birthday" paper for a "birthday" LO, for example...and here you proved it! Disney style!
