    Hi guys, who’s ready for a new challenge? It’s simple; just use this free template and a little of my product and you’ll receive this month’s participation prize.  This month’s template is  a fun multi-photo template, perfect for scrapping some of your favourite moments:

    **Please note, I am currently not offering ,page files until the copyright issue has been cleared up and I know if I am legally able to do so. In the meantime here is a tutorial showing you how to make your own page file using the PNGs provided**


    Challenge – Use this month’s template (make sure you use at least a little of my products on your page – freebies included) before the month is up and you’ll receive the participation prize. Feel free to make the template your own and have fun with it!

    Anyone that completes a page and shares a link to it in the comments of this post by midnight on the 30th of September will receive this month’s participation prize! This month’s PP is now available in the store, Wined & Dined | Bonus Alpha:

    **The prize will change from month to month, some months it might be a mini-kit, other month a journal card pack, next month an alpha and so on. **

    What’s more, I’m allowing double dipping with this and the Featured Product drawing, so one layout can qualify you for BOTH the participation prize and the $10 gift certificate drawing, providing you use the template and the featured product somewhere on your layout!

    Here’s what CT member Brandy created with this month’s template and Mr & Ms Mouse, I just love that she documented getting her magic bands, TOTALLY doing that for our next trip album:

    And what would a celebration be without a new kit to share with you all. Without further ado, I present Mr & Ms Mouse:

    Here’s the page I made using the new collection:

  • Happy 43rd Birthday Walt Disney World!!

    43 years ago today Walt Disney World opened it’s gates and welcomed magic into the hearts of millions! Although it saddens me that Walt never got to see his dream made a reality, it always makes me smile to think of the quote from Roy’s dedication speech which gives me hope that he was there in spirit, at least:

    Roy Disney & Mickey Mouse - Opening Day

    Roy Disney & Mickey Mouse – Opening Day

    Can somebody go find Mickey for me. We may not have Walt any more, but Mickey is nearest thing to Walt that we have.

    43 years after that day and the Most Magical Place on Earth is still going strong. I wish I was there right now to celebrate with Mickey and the Gang but sadly my budget doesn’t quite stretch far enough to an impromptu trip to the States. But luckily, Walt Disney World is the one place where they celebrate 365 days of the year, so hopefully I’ll be there to celebrate soon enough! In the mean time I extracted these Walt Disney World  buttons for you to use on your next celebration page:  [They are saved as full sized .png’s so just right click and ‘save image as’]
