Disney's animal kingdom!

So, the last day of our three day Disney vacation we spent in Animal Kingdom! It was a fun time... maybe not as much to do for the kids, but we still saw lots of animals, our favorite characters and... we were rather tired anyway!

We really liked playing in the Dino play area there...

and, Mickey and his friends had lots of time for pictures with us!

magic kindgom

Just wanted to share some more pictures of our time in Disney last week. We started the morning having breakfast with Mickey and the gang. The kids really liked meeting the characters, but usually got pretty shy once the characters got close...

Audrey really enjoyed riding the teacups.

We met tinkerbell and her friends in pixie hollow. She was really excited, but got a little nervous once it was time to meet them up close!

Alexander loved getting Chip and Dale at the Magic Kingdom. He really loves those guys.
Lots of other fun was had, but I was too busy enjoying it to take pictures! ha!

Here's the sketch!

Here's the thread where you can share your creation for a chance to win some goodies!

And here's my take on the sketch using the March Create My Keepsake kit! tfl!

Back from Disney~

hey everyone! We had such a great time at Disney World this past week! So, I thought I'd share with you some of the photos from the first day we spent in the Magic Kingdom!

We drove to Orlando and to the theme park. The morning started off with a show right in front of the castle complete with tons of our favorite characters, princesses and villains! It really got us in the disney spirit!

Then, it was on to some super fun stuff like - Snow white's ride, the merry go round ( a big hit) and tons of other things like Tom Sawyer's island. We had so much fun on day one!

We actually spent two days in the Magic Kingdom so I'll share more pictures tomorrow!

CPS sketch 105 is up and I really love it! I kinda made it a bit different, using circle shapes instead of the squares shown on the sketch, but that's what a sketch is about, right~... We had a fabulous sponsor this week! Keep in Touch Card kits! They were so generous and seemed to send us kits that really fit our personalities! The kit I used for my card is called bold and beautiful!
