Shop til you drop

It's coming up to the end of the month, so as usual I have been rushing about like a blue bottomed fly trying to get this month's Disney CJ layout completed....and by the skin of my teeth, here it is!

This month's book was so much fun to work in - I really liked the layout of Maggie's book - here's the front of the CJ - she has bound the journal itself (on the left, horizontal) and the sign in book (on the right, vertical) on the same back cover. So when you open it up you can see each person's sign in tag next to their layout:

Genius! I am soooooo going to be stealing this idea for a future CJ round :)

Maggie's theme is "Shop til you drop...Disney style", which was fun, as it meant I got a chance to document my antenna topper habit :) Yes, I'm a topper shopper, and proud!

Here's my layout plus sign in, in full:

Closer look @ the LHS:

and the RHS:

I gave the Cuttlebug a bit of a workout on this one, as you can see from all the embossing.....nothing else particularly clever going on here, a few of the topper heads have been decoupaged up on foam pads (you can see that clearer in the pic at the top of this post), the wording was either Cricutted (title) or stamped (the rest), and I made a couple of little accordion books for the journalling.

th-th-th-that's all folks.

Another one next month....

I couldn't resist and had to peek! That looks fantastic Sarah - can't wait until it gets back home to me so I can see it in real life.
Thank you so much for such a fab entry.

PS We collect antenna toppers too - we've got the mickey bat one and the Jack Skellington (but with a Santa hat) as well.

That CJ looks really great. Haven't played with paper for ages. I am sort of stuck with fabric. I miss paper and playtime, but I love checking out what happens here ;) Hope you are well. Thanks for the comments on my blog. I am glad I I've got around to doing that with more regularity lately. I am enjoying it again.
