Where's Nemo?

I have a thing for anything Disney. Love Disneyland, love Disney cartoons, love Disney characters. Love Disney. So I make it a point to go watch Disney on Ice whenever they come to Brunei.

When Ty was almost a year old, I brought him to watch one of the Disney on Ice shows and boy was it an ordeal. He cried and cried when the lights went out and would not stop until we brought him outside. My dad had gotten us front row seats dead centre and he spent the whole time sitting in the foyer of the Indoor Stadium with my dad.

This time round, I figured he must be old enough to enjoy the show properly. Again we managed to get front row seats. Unfortunately, we were running late and by the time we got there the lights had been turned down and the show had started. Ty was not pleased. He refused to go down to our front row seats and wanted to leave. But this time I managed to convince him to hang around at the back and eventually I got him to sit on my lap at an empty back row. During the interval, he allowed us to get to our seats and we watched the rest of the show at our planned seats albeit with him sitting on my lap. For me, this was a successful outing! Progress!! But I think a visit to Disneyland proper might just have to wait awhile. Hee.

Materials: Textured Cardstock: DCWV; Patterned Paper, Acrylic Paint, Fish Buttons: Making Memories; Chipboard Alpha: Queen & Co; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Cloth Tab: S.E.I, Pens: Zig and Ink: Cat's Eye Chalk

I decided to scrap our tickets to the show straightaway as I'm a bit of a procrastinator and have a tendency to lose stuff if I leave them around for too long. The photos were taken at the spur of the moment at night and printed on my Epson photo printer. It was an ordeal in itself to try and get Ty to wear the Nemo hat, hold the programme book and stay still for the photo to be taken.

I didn't want to glue the tickets for the show down onto the LO so I made pockets from strips of patterned paper which had been cut with the Cutterpede Wavy blade. Two pockets for two tickets and the last pocket for some journalling. The B-Mobile top up cards were given to Ty from my mum and dad and were just too cute to leave out. I'm just loving the Queen & Co chipboard alpha as it is just the right size. Not too big and not too small. And by that, those who know me well will have already guessed that I've gone and bought meself another pack of the same chipboard alphas. Tee hee.

Love the layout! Did you actually hand-stitch them?

Good to know you've not lost your scrapping mojo :p

Hehe nope. I used the Zig pens (orange and white) for the mock stitching.
