Magical Color Challenge - Day 4

Hey there, Peeps!  Happy Wednesday!

Here we are already on Day 4 of the "Magical Color Inspiration Challenge".  Whew!  I can't believe it.  I'm having a blast creating these projects to share with you.
I'm also really enjoying reliving the memories Mike and I made down in Florida on our Destination Date Night.  I think it's helping me get through this long week while he's overseas.  :-)

So here are the photos for today....   I'm sure you've noticed how much I love taking photos of random objects like lights and displays and signs.  Do you do that too?  It's always fun to look back a remember the little details and it's just my way of recording our memories.
Anyway.....here we go....
We left off over in New Fantasyland at Beast's Castle....


This is inside the Grand Ballroom at the "Be Our Guest" Restaurant

The ceiling was beautiful!  There are three rooms you can choose from to eat in at the restaurant

The details inside were just amazing!

Ok....Then we went back up to Main Street for a bit to shop and get a few goodies to take home to the kids...  We had to do something fun while our food settled so we could head off to ride some of our favorite rides!  Here are a few shots from Main Street....




I absolutely LOVE taking photos of the buildings on Main Street USA.  I've been to WDW many times and I STILL find new things that I never noticed before.  It's SO cool!
One of my favorite places!  The "Confectionery"!  Yum!


Disney Cast Members are just terrific and we've had tons of fun talking to so many of them over the years.  This time was no exception.....

It doesn't matter how many photos we have of us in front of Cinderella's Castle.  They all tell a story....

Now THAT'S a Disney sky!




It's always a treat seeing the fun vehicles on Main Street.  Sometimes you can even hitch a ride.  :-)


Now for some delicious Disney treats!!!  Woot!!






YES, PLEASE!!!  I'll take two of each!!  Don't they look YUMMY????

Ok....so for today's project I used two of the photos instead of just one.  This card just makes my heart SO happy!  Here are the inspiration photos.....


AND


...and here's what I came up with.....




With a matching envelope!!  FUN!!

I seriously had the BEST time creating this card and matching envelope.  I'm telling you....get those punches out and USE THEM!  Look at what you can create with just a few scraps of card stock and designer series paper and a couple of punches!  It's so much fun to play around with them and watch what comes out.....

If you haven't looked at the punches that Stampin' Up! has available lately, you need to check them out.  Seriously!  The possibilities are endless.
You can find them at my Online Shop.  Just click the shopping cart above and it will take you right to the store.  Go browse and see what you come up with.  

Remember....Right now  you can get ONE FREE SALE A BRATION PRODUCT for every $50 you spend.  There are some adorable stamp sets, papers, punches and accessories just sitting there waiting to be yours for FREE.

The lights are always on and there's never a line!  What are you waiting for?

Ok....Come back tomorrow for Day 5 of the challenge.  You never know what's waiting around the corner...  :-)

Have a magical day!

Magical Color Challenge - Day 3

Hellooooooo Stampers!
Are you ready for Day 3 of the "Magical Color Challenge"?  If you've missed Days 1 and 2...go check them out.  Here are the next photos from our "Destination Date Night" at Walt Disney World (Magic Kingdom)...
 
 
First stop....Belle's Cottage....Of course her father, Maurice, gave the place a lot of "character" with all of his inventions...


It was SO wonderful seeing the beautiful, flowering trees...in January!!





Love those colors!



Then we headed over to the "quiet, little village" and visited Gaston's Tavern...





Ahhh....*swoon* (ok...not really.....I'd take the Beast any day over Gaston!)  He asked what "Stampin' Up! on my shirt meant.  When I explained he asked if I had mostly scrapbooks filled with photos of HIM!  Brut! ;-)


It's true!  He definitely DOES use antlers in ALL of his decorating!

Then....we made our way across the bridge to one of my NEW favorite places!!  Beast's Castle!!

Throught the gate.......
....Passing scary gargoyles on our way....  ;-)





Ok.....Tomorrow I'll post more from the castle....the "Be Our Guest" Restaurant and LOTS more.
Now....Are you ready to see which photo I chose for my inspiration today???


Here you go....


(Drumroll, please............)

The photo....


and......here's what I came up with....



So.....what do you think?
Now.....are you ready to create and play along?  Come on!  You CAN do it!
It's fun!  Email a photo of your card or project to me at shellsuit@verizon.net.  Tell me the photo you used for your inspiration too!  I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Alrighty....My carriage is back to a plump, orange pumpkin....and my trusty, white steed is back to a fluffy, white pup who is presently snoring quite loudly at the foot of my bed.  I guess it's time to call it a night.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming back again and again to visit with me here on my blog.  You are ALL such a blessing.

Sweet Dreams to you and....as always....
Have a Magical Day!
