06/13/13 - SIWAS: "Cruise"

"Heidi-ho there, neighbor!"
Do you remember what show that's from?!
I don't even know why it popped into my mind cuz I haven't watched "Home Improvement" in forever but there it was and I chose to use it.
Today I am sharing w/ you the latest challenge over at "Scrap It With a Song".
This weeks challenge is "Cruise" by Florida Georgia Line and Nelly.
Never heard of the song or group before this!
But luckily the title of the song works for scrapping pics of the Disney Cruise we took in October 2011.
"Disney Cruise"
Journaling: "October 2011. Our family goes on a Disney Cruise. Fun was had by all!"
I have tons of pics from that cruise but they are all tucked away in a nice "Disney Cruise" themed photo album. And since I couldn't scrap every pic even if I tried, I decided to select 2 pics from the cruise that 'summarizes' the event: a picture of the ship and a picture of all of us taking a picture w/ a Disney character.
So I summed up a 7 day cruise in 2 pics! Which is much better than scrapping 200 + pictures!!! Yikes!
The colors on this layout are a litle...ummm... "weird", for lack of a better term.
I mixed bright colors w/ dark colors and alternated them to go w/ the bright colors of the top pic and dark colors of the bottom pic. I also carried on the bright/dark colors theme w/ the yellow letters on the bottom pic. The yellow letters spell out "us" to go w/ the "4" therefore spelling out "Us 4". Then to break up the mass amounts of colors, I added some white elements: the journaling tag and the heart. And finally I added some self-adhesive Mickey Mouse embellies to help round out the whole Disney theme. 
Okay that's all from me today.
Please stop by the SIWAS blog and share w/ us how you were inspired by this weeks song pick!
