Disney LO | Disney Gives Back Blog Hop

Welcome to GabyCreates and to the
Disney Gives Back Blog Hop

Hopefully you just arrived from Rachelle's blog, if not and you wish to participate, please start with our host Shawnee HERE

This wonderful blog hop was created out of a desire to give back to a wonderful organization called Crops of Luv. Throughout the hop, you will see layouts from talented crafters who have chosen to give back and help make these children's days brighter.
Crops of Luv makes albums for Make A Wish Albums for families who go to Disneyland or Disney World. Please visit and support each crafter and also if you would like to make layouts for Crops of Luv you can do so by contacting Crops of Luv at http://www.cropsofluv.com or address below.

I created this layout without a cutting machine (a different approach for me...).and inspired by a LO kit by BG
Here been held/displayed on my Scrap'n Easel--
I made sure that each character is only adhered outside of the white mat area so that the pictures can be tacked in under.  I additionally did not add much adhesive to the mats so that if the recipient prefers to not have them or change them, it will be easy to lift them.
I just could not help myself so I stamped the "[picture not available]" image/sentiment (I know, new stamp!)... and why did I have to have ink on my finger and got it on the mat area just before taking my pictures.... I will change tomorrow before mailing it out.
 My intent for this layout is that it's utilized for pictures of the trip there... I remember how exciting it was every time as a kid when our parents took us to Disneyland!  It always started with the LONG! 2 hour drive! LOL  It was almost like Christmas Eve (the waiting part).

Thanks so much for stopping by and hopefully you are inspired to create and mail a 2 page layout to Crops of Luv!
