Layouts for Crops of Luv

Happy Weekend!  Welcome to Cooking with Cricut's monthly blog hop. 
This month the designers have chosen to create layouts for the Crops of Luv Organization
If you've arrived from Suzanne's blog, Cricut Craftin Grammy, then you're in the right spot.  If you were just visiting my blog and would like to start at the beginning, you'll want to click HERE to go to Cooking with Cricut.
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 blog hop features 12 x 12 double page layouts using these themes requested by Crops of Luv: Princesses, Pirates, Animal Kingdom, Summer Fun, Christmas (yes, they celebrate Christmas every Thursday at "Give Kids the World"), or general Disney themes.
We were given specific guidelines for the layouts.  They requested a journaling tag or block for each layout and mats to hold three 4x6 photos per page.  We were also asked NOT to permamently adhere the photo mats in case they needed to be moved or flipped.  I used double-sided repositionable tape to adhere my mats to the layouts.
Here is my project for today's hop.  Remember, this is a two-day hop with entirely different layouts being shared on Sunday (so please come back tomorrow!!)

I've been hoarding Disney papers and stickers so it was so nice to use my stash for such a worthy project.  The tags are cuts from the Mickey Font cartridge.

I hope you enjoy all the Design Team's creations.  We invite you to participate.  You can make a two-page layout following the guidelines above and mail it directly to Crops of Luv c/o Roberta Baker, 11424 S. Pawnee Circle, Phoenix, AZ 85044.  This blog hop is also a CWC challenge to be sure to link up your project HERE.  And while you're at CWC, leave a comment for a chance to win some great blog candy.
