Almost Perfect

I don’t photograph well.  Okay, maybe I just don’t like pictures of me at all.  I know I can’t be the only one!  That being said, I LOVE this series of photos from Pandora in Animal Kingdom.  That photographer needs a serious raise.  It’s not that I look super glamorous or beautiful… It’s that he captured the playfulness and joy.  After seeing these photos, I wish I had gotten his name.  I would definitely have sent a cast compliment to Disney.

Though I am not completely in love with the color scheme or papers of this layout, I am still fairly happy with it.  I was inspired by the “You And Me” journaling card.  I felt like the sentiment was just right for these photos.  Based on that, I decided on black, white, red, and kraft.  The polka dot papers are a tad bit too much together.  It would have been better if I went with a solid red, or a red paper with a subtle tone on tone pattern.  Why did I make this mistake?  I am determined to use the papers from the Disney collections I purchased.  In this case, it would have been better to have mixed the Disney paper with something else from my stash.  When will I ever learn that I can’t force things to work?


You and Me

There wasn’t a lot of room for embellishment on this particular layout.  Fitting three 4×6 photos along with a title card was no easy task.  This is why most of my layouts feature only one or two photos.  In this case, I found some flowers that I had cut out from my Silhouette.  Originally those flowers were white and blue.  I simply used some red and black ink in order to make them fit my needs. I also added in some cute little wood veneer hearts.  Lastly, I added in some stickers and gems.

This layout is almost perfect.  It does have a few flaws.  I now see that I need to add in another flower near the “Love this” sticker.  Without that flower, it looks unbalanced.  There is a rule of threes for a reason!  There are also too many polka dots even for me.  Despite it’s flaws, I love it.  This is one of those pages I will really cherish.

Disney tip:  If you get phenomenal service from a cast member at DisneyWorld, you can send them a compliment via Twitter.  You can Tweet to @WDWToday, identify the incredible cast member, and use the hashtag #CastCompliment.  We did this after a cast member went above and beyond to solve a photopass issue.  I was thrilled that @WDWToday responded, so I knew they had received my message.
