What a Bunch of Monsters

Why yes, I am still scrapping my Disney vacation.  When will I be done?  I’m honestly hoping to get done before the next decade.  I make no promises.  This is what happens when you only go on vacation every 15ish years.  You take far too many photos.

This is one of my favorite layouts so far.  It isn’t super creative.  I think it has more to do with the subject matter.  Monsters Inc. is a special movie for my husband and I.  He is my Sully.  So meeting Mike and Sully was super important to me.  (We won’t talk about how it was hot in line and my own personal Sully had a bit of a short temper because of the heat.)  Instead, we’ll concentrate on the super cute pictures.  Look at how Sully completely engulfs me!

What a bunch of Monsters

The other reason I love this layout so much is the color scheme.  Teal, purple, and lime green are just beautiful together.  Obviously, the characters themselves were my inspiration.  I knew that I wanted the focus to be the teal and purple of Sully.  Then I went for a brighter pop with the lime green from Mike.  I purposely chose to go with a lighter brighter shade of green.

If you are like me, you struggle with having a horizontal and vertical photo on a page.  Normally I would line up the bottom of the photos and put the title above the horizontal picture.  This time I decided to shake it up and offset the photos.  The title was placed at the bottom.  I’m honestly not sure about the white (well, teal in this case) space above the landscape photo.  It’s a little larger than I would like.  I tried putting something small, like a boarder on it, but then that was too much.

The best part of the page is the stitched semi-circle.  I really do love hand stitching on a page.  It just takes extra time and patience that I don’t always have.  It was fun to decorate with a variety of older embellishments that I’ve had for years.  Each piece is from a different collection, and yet, they work beautifully together.  I’m so happy with the final result.

Disney tip:  Character lines can get long.  If you have little ones, you may want to start your fast passes an hour or two after the park opens and get in line for characters at the beginning of the day.  You will miss out on shorter ride lines, but it might be a good trade off if you have a super fan.  Make sure to check times when you arrive at the park, as some characters may not be meeting at park opening.
