Such Characters!

This week over at BettyBee's Buzz our challenge was to use a character of some sort in our projects. It could be in the form of a Cricut cut, photo, stickers, stamp, or downloaded image.... whatever inspiration we wanted. In keeping with my personal goal of doing more scrapbook pages this year, I used my Mickey Font Cricut Cartridge to cut the EPCOT letters and the ticket on this layout. I also downloaded the free Disney "Waltograph" font from, so it was easy to do the lettering on my computer. The blackout image of Mickey is a Cuttlebug die cut called "TaDa", and I handcut the white shadow, which gave the right "POP" against the Echo Park background paper. I also used the Cuttlebug for texture, with the Seeing Spots folder on the red strip on the left.
It was a freezing cold day, but sharing the day with such warm friends made it wonderful! We had lunch at the Japanese restaurant, rode a bunch of rides, and walked the entire circle! I think Spaceship Earth was my favorite. I can't wait to have the opportunity to back again.
I must admit that after doing cards for so long, doing a scrapbook page was a challenge. I am really happy to have done it, and am very happy to have the memories of the day at Epcot with my friends saved for all time!
I hope you will pop over to BettyBee's Buzz, and see what June, Beth and Roe have done... then create your own characters to share! There is a prize this week, too!
Happy creating ~
