The Everything ABC Blog Hop - Letter M for Magnifique and Mickey!

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter M.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their M element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

My letter M is Maginfique and Mickey!
 So all my pictures from Disney are during last year's Close to My Heart annual Convention!  This year's convention is coming up soon!  Be watching my blog and Facebook page for updates and new products!

My whole family including my parents came and they did Disney while I did convention and I spent one evening with my hubby going to the Boardwalk area and having a nice dinner at the Flying Fish Cafe without our 4 kids!!  Of course it poured down rain right before we went and was very humid! I looked through my papers and found the lovely retired Magnifique papers which seemed to work perfectly with the pictures!
 Now how to incorporate the Disney part of the layout since my paper didn't say Disney at all! So I thought about using a Mickey head with the word Disney in the middle of it!  It worked perfectly and added the Disney element I wanted while still leaving the pages with the elegance offered by the Magnifique papers!
I also used the Cricut Craft room to weld the letters together to make them easier to attach to the page!  It also helps to figure out sizing of the words!  

I also entered this in the Heart 2 Heart June 2 challenge of Rhapsody in Blue!
