Travel Challenge and Pregnancy Update

Hey everyone!  It's time for a new challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2!  This week Pam has selected a travel theme.  All you have to do is create a card, layout, or project using a Cricut cut and a travel theme.  
I knew exactly what I was going to do for this challenge.  We just got back a month ago from our surprise Disneyworld trip.  I wanted to create a layout for the beginning of my Disney album.  I have three photos that show the surprise box I put together, what was inside, and our decorated van.  We had so much fun surprising them!  Click here for that post!

For my layout, I got my inspiration from Pinterest.  There are so many great Disney layouts on there.  I used the basic look/background from a site called The Scrapinator.  I really love how it turned out and how quickly it came together!

As always, I used Cricut craftroom to help me layout the design:
Then I just hide all the mats that I will cut by hand, rearrange all the cuts to cut on a sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock:
2 -12 x 12 sheets black cardstock
Red background mats - 11.5 x 5
Yellow background mats - 11.5 x 4.5 (Recollections Basic Bolds Pattern Paper)
Red pattern mats- 11.5 x 1.75 (DCWV School Stack Pattern Paper)
Title and Mickey Hat - Mickey Font 
Hand Border - Mickey and Friends
Journaling Tag - Plantin Schoolbook
Solid cardstock-Recollections

We hope you will join us this week over at Bitten by the Bug 2!

So onto baby news...I am 38 weeks and I go to the doctor today to find out some more news.  He has been telling me this would probably be the week!  My last day of work was last Wednesday.  We had an early birthday party for my son this past weekend, so now I feel like I'm ready.  I know my body feels ready!!  So I'll post some pics or updates soon!

And if you are interested in making any good grilling suppers, try these:
