4 for a $

The first journaling challenge at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking was someone you miss. I couldn't think of anything for the longest time until DH and I were over at Disney Hollywood Studios at the Beauty and Beast show and while sitting there waiting........and waiting.........for the show to start we got to talking about how much we missed the pre-show, "Four for a $". They are an acapella group that came on stage dressed and acting like stage crew. It was believable to new guests that hadn't seen their show. We always enjoyed them and were so disappointed when Disney canceled their performances.

field day

I did this layout for the ad challenge at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking. I was inspired by the radiation design that made me think of this Lily Bee paper. I also turned it on it's side for the title. Added some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist "Coffee Shop" to the background and the little bird is a Glimmer Chip also by Tattered Angels.
