Off to Disney and GDC Product Testing...

We are off to Disney today for a family vacation! I can't wait for the sun, sand, and Mickey! So think of me laying on this very hammock on the beach at The Grand Floridian! I took this photo the last time I was there and plan on planting myself on it with a good book!

I just wanted to share these projects I did for GCD Studios as a product tester. Heidi requested I do a boys room decoration using the Vintage Boy line. I made this pencil holder and photo block for my nephew. This is another one of those homemade Christmas gifts I am bound and determined to make.

With all the extra's I also did this layout.

Here was my review of the products:

As a mom to two boys I jumped for joy when I saw all the boyish goodness in the box filled with the Vintage Boy line and a set of black glitter alphabets. I just love the texture of the GCD Studios paper, it really has a very rich, luxurious feel to it. The bold patterns and designs are totally original and really are fun to work with. It is totally versatile. Even though this is a "boy" line it worked perfectly on a beach layout...I also think these paper would be fabulous for some fall layouts. I love the look of the glitter alphabets as well. They have just enough sparkle to make them special. In each package are 5 sheets of letters and numbers. Plenty to last for quite a few projects. You can't go wrong with these products so be sure to add them to your wish list, happy scrapping!

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you in a week with lots of pictures and hopefully a bit of a tan!
