Magic Kingdom Lunch Antics - My Scraps & More Sketch #111

Howdy y'all!  It's time for the first August sketch reveal for My Scraps & More Sketches, and what a great sketch!  I opted to dig into more Disney photos and use Simple Stories Say Cheese II - such fun!  (My The Happiest Place on Earth layout uses this collection too, and my Selfie Magic layout uses the original Say Cheese collection.)  Check out my layout below and then head over to the MSAM sketch blog to see all the other fabulous designers' takes!

I started with textured black cardstock and knew I wanted to cut "windows" out using my Cameo.  I decided that rounded rectangles would be fun.  I made sure I had space for two photos above them.

After cutting it, I trimmed different papers from the collection (many from scraps!) and decided where I wanted most of them to go.  I backed the cut cardstock with an offwhite cardstock to match the collection, placed some papers underneath and adhered it all together.  Then I layered some on top of the windows.

I sewed along the middle, around my journaling window, and top left corner with gold thread - it matches the gold in the collection and also looks great with the wood veneer embellishments!

The header section with the photos came together quickly.  I used one of the border sections from the collection and trimmed the natural border out and around the heart on the right.  I inked the edges of the photos with black Stazon ink to help them stand out a bit.  I added a scallop trim from a barcode strip and some embellishments including a geotag sticker, wood veneer star, a gold star sequin, and the gold "happy" (all from the collection except the gold star, which is from Studio Calico).

I made sure to leave one of the larger rectangles as my journal spot and finished it with a sewed border and wood veneer heart.

I cut "Lunch Antics" out using my Cameo and used red stickers from the collection to spell out "Magic Kingdom" sideways to make sure it fit where I wanted it.

Well, that's it for me!  I hope you are inspired to create your own layout to link up at My Scraps & More sketches for a chance to win a fun prize!  Here's the sketch:

Do it!  And make it a great weekend.

Have fun!  See you soon!
