CWC Crops of Love Hop - Day 1

Welcome to the, Crops of Luv Blog Hop. This month our designers chose to create layouts for the Crops of Luv Organization. If you came here from Larelyn then you are in the right place, if you need to start from the beginning, then just head over to CWC.

Crops of Luv works hand-in-hand with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and creates scrapbooks for families who have children facing life-threatening illnesses. Our hop will focus on creating 12 x 12 Scrapbook double page LOs using these themes: Princesses, Pirates, Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, Summer Fun (e.g. swimming), Christmas (yes, they have Christmas every Thursday at "Give Kids the World"), or general Disney themes.

Crops of Luv has some specific guidelines for the layouts. They need to include a journaling block or tag and mats for 3 4 x 6 pictures on each page. They also do not want the photo mats permanently adhered to the page. That way they can flip them whichever way they need to.

We hope you will enjoy our creations! We would love for you to participate. You can make a two-page layout following the parameters outlined above and mail it directly to Crops of Luv c/o Roberta Baker, 11424 S. Pawnee Circle, Phoenix, AZ 85044. Since this blog hop is also a challenge, be sure to link your project to CWC/PCW.

Today I made this 2 page Mickey Mouse layout. I LOVE Mickey.. he's my absolute favorite and no trip to Disneyland/world is complete without a visit to the mouse that started it all!

I used yellow textured card stock for the background pages. I cut black textured card stock into 4.5x6.5 photo mats. The red tag and red rectangle are both for journaling.. the block is 2 x 4.5 inches and the tag is 2 x 2.5 inches and has yellow bakers twine attached to the opening. Mickey was cut on my gypsy so I'm not positive his exact measurements but I'm pretty sure he's 3 inches tall. The Mickey head boarders are all cut in the same red card stock as the journaling tags and is cut with the boarder setting on the Mickey & Friends cart using my gypsy. The shorts are done the same way. The large Mickey in the corner, the red Mickey head on the bottom corner of the first page, & the red Mickey head boarder on the 2nd page are all on pop dots.

The title says " THAT MOUSE" and is on Mickey & Friends cart also. This too was cut on my Gypsy. It was cut at 2 inches tall.

If you get lost along the way, please be sure to head back to CWC and start from there. Be sure to head over to CWC and leave a comment for a chance to win some blog candy and to link your own Crops of Luv creation. Now you can head over to Natt's blog. Thanks so much for being a part of our hop.

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
