It's Designer's Challenge Week at Color Combos Galore: http://colorcombosgalore.ning.com/. The color inspiration for my layout came from CCG#125 created by Color Combos Galore designer extraordinaire, Janine Koczwara. Leeann Pearce is the featured member--YAY! Leeann! If you want to participate in the color challenge, follow the link and post your layouts there by Sunday to be eligible for the monthly RAK.
Let me explain this layout. Disneyland is our family's favorite place. The last time we went, in December 2007, we had planned and saved for months and stayed almost a week at the California Grand. It was also the week of my husband's birthday. This was his present to us--he's such a sweetie--really looking forward to this trip as you can tell. We took the kids out of school for the week. As soon as we got there, one-by-one, starting with Raiden, each of us got extremely sick. To top it off, it rained for two days straight--I mean RAINED--notice the ponchos my husband and Raiden are wearing in the middle picture? We still managed to have a good time, it was Disneyland during the holidays after all. To this day, I have not been THAT sick. When our family gets sick now, I ask the question, "Are you Disneyland sick?" That way I know just how sick they are. HA! I hope we can go back someday . . . and not be sick.
For the title, I used the Hello Kitty Font Cricut cartridge, cut from chipboard, and outlined using the basic black Cricut pen. The flowers are from the Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge, outlined with the basic black Cricut pen, and cut in different sizes for layering.
Hope you all are enjoying the weather and having your kiddies at home for the summer--I know I am.
