We interrupt the travel posts.....

Today, I interrupt my London travel update for breaking news!  I wanted to be a part of a challenge I have not done before.  The JOT magazine is having a little challenge and I decided I needed to post this layout to participate.!  The Challenge was to use "Something Stripey, Something BOLD, Something Glittery, and Something GOLD.  I used the new  Heidi Swapp Project Life Gold Stuff to create this page!  This little lady was close to turning 3 and we had a lovely little tea party.  I loved her little Pouty face on this pic!  The rest of the party was all smiles!!!
The elements in this fun Heidi collection are beautiful in shiny GOLD!

Thanks for stopping by to see this little challenge!

I made this little flip-agram with my iPhone pics of Disneyland Paris!  I am such a Disney girl, so this little Extra on our trip to Paris made it so special!  It was so much fun to go see Disneyland in Paris-- something I can check off my bucket list!

OUR travels......continued!

I have another installment of photos from our London/Paris trip today!  I have so many to go thru and edit, that it takes a while to cover the whole trip!  Today I am so excited to share something that was on my bucket list and it was magical!  Those of you who know me, know I am a total Disney girl!  I had always wanted to visit an international Disney- since I had been to WDW and Disneyland alot!  It was so much fun to take a train to DisneylandParis!!!  Here's a few shots from there!  It is beautiful and pretty much the same as the US - only French style!  There was a new Ratatouille ride that was adorable!  So perfect for France!  We had a blast and I am so happy we went!
Of course, Disneyland Paris is PINK!!!! 

Look at these Hydrageas!  Fantastic

First thing on Mainstreet was a dance number- of course!  (sung in English)

My traveling buddy as we landed in Paddington station to meet Ross in LONDON!  

Our Tour guide was excited to meet up with us and get going on our adventures.
We left right away for Paris since Ross had the weekend off from his schooling! 

Took a little walk once we got checked in to the Paris Hotel and saw some amazing architecture -- which is EVERYWHERE!!! 

Saw the Eiffel Tower from afar on the first night- will check back tomorrow! 

This kid has had such an amazing summer- and was so good to show us all the sights!  He made it easy for his Mom and Dad to enjoy his new city! 

This was the street where our hotel was.  I love every little detail!   
Walked past alot of these-- I think I could easily live here!!!
