Pixie Plate #296

One of my favorite things about designing is seeing how it was/is used!   When I was selling, I loved getting emails from customers sharing their latest project with something of mine.  I also loved being able to go through the store's gallery to see how customers used my product.  It gave me great joy to see those projects.  Pixie Plates always gave me the greatest enjoyment as I'd look through the gallery thinking "that's my template?"  and then be wow'ed at how the scrapper took the template and made it their own with altering the template by removing/adding photos or cluster differently than I had imagined.  That was probably my favorite memory about being an active designer and selling in a store--seeing how my designs were used.    So if you have used Pixie Plate #296, consider emailing me or posting her the link to your layout so I can see how Pixie Plate #296 gave you inspiration on your layout!!
I wanted to scrap with this template,
so I grabbed In the Stars Collection by Amber Shaw
When I saw this kit, I knew I needed to have it and scrap my daughter's 8th grade formal.  As I scrapped, the layout kept evolving and changing from one direction to another.  Originally I had four photos along the bottom, but I wanted to journal, so I removed two of those photos.  At the end of the night, this was my finished layout using Pixie Plate # 296
I love how this layout come together.  I love everything about it!
How have you used Pixie Plate # 296 or another Neverland Scraps product?

MouseScrappers Blog Hop

Welcome to MouseScrappers Design Challenge #21 Blog Hop! 
You probably came from Chef Minnie Mouse's blog.  Thank you for playing along in MouseScrappers Design Challenge Blog Hop!  I'm so excited as this is my first time participating in the Design Challenge, much less the Blog Hop!! 
Basically how this works is a handful of people came together, using the monthly color swatch and created either a template or a mini kit.  I had originally planned on doing a mini kit, but time ran away from me and so I asked if I could do a template instead. 
This is the color swatch that we were given for this month's Design Challenge:

Once we've completed our portion, we uploaded it to host of the challenge.  She went through everyone's submissions and gave each of the participants links to each other's creations.  After that was done, everyone's submissions are being hosted at MouseScrappers Store, where you can purchase the entire collaboration.  Your purchase, helps keep MouseScrappers running, so please consider purchasing this month's collaboration!

This is my submission for this month's collaboration:

The ONLY way for you to get this Pixie Plate and all the other submissions is to purchase the collaboration kit at MouseScrappers!
All proceeds of purchase of this kit will be used to keep MouseScrappers running, so help your fellow Disney site running! 

However, since this is a blog hop and you came here for a matching freebie, I'd like give you Pixie Plate #296 to thank you for stopping by my blog and supporting MouseScrappers.

Template Challenge

I'm hosting another Template Challenge at MouseScrappers!  All template challenges run for two weeks, giving you plenty of time to play along in the challenge.  Since MouseScrappers is a Disney-inspired site, we ask that your layout be related to Disney whether it's from a recent vacation, going to the Disney Store, or even photos of something Disney (Mickey Mouse, Ariel) in your home!  Once your layout is completed, upload your layout in the MouseScrappers Template Gallery.  Find the coordinating forum about your layout and post the link/image to give others Disney-inspiration!!  After you've done that, come back to my Template Challenge Thread and post the link/image of your layout with the coordinating forum link to be eligible to win an extra prize at the end of the challenge!! 

I know, you are asking, what does this template look like?  I'm glad you asked because this is the Pixie Plate #291 that you will be working with for the next two weeks
And here is how my best friend, Dawn (Aussiegirl) used the template to create a Disney Cars layout
