"Silly You"

Hey gang! I have had the scrap bug, BIG time! Before I went on vacation, I headed out to the big box stores to load up on whatever goodies I could find, and then I hit "The Dream" I got tons of paper and goods that I was dying to use. I was hoping to spend a few days before my vacation scrapping some stuff that I have been meaning to get to - knowing that when I returned I would be scrapping my trip. Well, I got sick. I am talking the NASTY stomach bug, SICK! Needless to say, I got nothing done before leaving for the Magic Kingdom AKA, Disney! Anyway, I ordered some (200) pictures from our trip, and thought while I was waiting for them to come in, I should get out some of my new is what I created....
The supplies; Bazzil Basics - white, Three Bugs in a Rug (the lettering, the strips and the tags), American Crafts ribbon, and some star bling.

I was really having a hard time with making the letters pop. (side note, I am realizing that this is a theme of mine - I guess I really like letters). Anyway, I did my 'famous' go-around-the-edges with a marker thing. Came out OK - but in a few spots it was really messy -thus the usage of more tags behind the lettering - shhhh, don't tell anyone. :) The "o" was plain. Too plain, so I wrapped ribbon around it. Looks cute, if I do say so myself. The "S" and the "I" are also very plain, so I added bling on the "S" and doodled some stars on the "I".
Of course, nothing I do would be complete with the use of ink! All around the edges of every letter and the paper. To put it as Sharon does "that's how I roll".

WARNING - I hate to say this ladies, but I will probably be posting LOTS of Disney stuff soon. Don't worry, I won't post every page that I do, just the few that I like the most. I will try to do other stuff in between as to not bore anyone (including myself), but I am REALLY excited about doing this...just be warned. LOL

Really cute page. "C" looks so adorable. I love the big letters too. I bought a bunch at the dream over the past few months and yet to have used them. Thanks for the inspiration to dig in and use um. Great lo!

I love how you created the title of this page. Super awesome.

No worries about the Disney stuff...I can't wait to see everything. I'll be taking notes in preparation of our big trip to Disney in a couple of years.
