Dream Vacation

Hi you all and welcome , this is it the last layout for LOAD514 it is Day 31 of LOAD 514, that I completed on May 31, the theme is Past times and the prompt:Dream Vacation.The real or imaginary trip from when you were little. As soon as I seen the prompt I knew this has to be Florida and seeing Disney World. This was the best vacation that I went on when I was young. I got my layout done, but will need to do a page 2 for this maybe even 4 pages to complete the trip right.
Pretty busy layout, but then that is what Walt Disney World is, very busy so seems fitting even with all it's confetti :)
I used a sketch for the challenge over at My Scraps and More Sketches: Sketch #81:

This one gave me alot of options for photos and things on the page. I also had Kelly's challenge in mind while doing this and  knew it would be perfect for the Party Popper's challenge for the party at Sketch N Scrap.
This trip was in the early 70s so I was 9 or 10 when we went.
 A couple of pictures from the parade we saw it probably that 1st night there. I received these cute buttons in a swap long ago and knew the would fit in just right on this layout. A frame from CM that was in last month's counterfeit kit and the candy dots from SU that is in this month's kit.
 This section has 2 pictures taken at Cypress Gardens, a lovely place, I see that it is no more and lego land has taken up that spot now.The middle cutout is from a paper from last month's kit but the layer under it is from this month's kit so is the washi arrow tape.
 The top section has 2 pictures and the tag for a title: Dream Vacation that was cut off the paper sheet. A picture of the haunted mansion and a picture of It's a Small World ride.
 A cluster of a sticker a cut out heart, button, candy dots, sequins and some foamies
 My Mom when we were at Cypress Gardens, finished off those adhesive flairs on this layout from last month's kit.

 A picture of me at Cypress Gardens. With more confetti and a say cheese sticker popped up on foam for dimension this is from Simple Stories 24/7 sticker sheet
And this is the stack of layouts I did this month a total of 33 layouts for May and 31 were from LOAD. This was an amazing experience, to get a prompt and to do a layout within one day, I feel accomplished!
Thank you all for the kind comments I have received over the month they were very appreciated and helped to keep me in the game (I love challenges and this one was huge!) they gave me the extra boost when I was down and tired to keep on going and I have to say that Sketch N Scrap's 2nd Birthday Bash was a big help too gave me loads of challenges to work from so I would have some idea what to do with each layout each day. Enjoy your weekend, we have a picnic today to attend so it will be nice to just relax.
