I had a little free time this week so decided to get my scrappy on!
***Echo Park For the Record collection***

This sketch from GrandDiva's Creative Corner really inspired me.  I came across this pic in my remaining Disney photos and then also found the actual newspaper that she autographed in my memorabilia stash.  Creativity was starting to flow!

I really loved the filmstrip and just HAD to include one on my page.  I think you can see the basic core of the sketch on my layout although some things were changed a bit for aesthetic reasons.  I needed to make sure that the newspaper was still accessible so I made a large pocket with the patterned papers behind the photo.
I included a Polaroid frame to fit the challenge at Through the Eyes of Rochelle Spears.  It's a "This or That" challenge---use a Polaroid frame or chipboard frame on your page.  I thought about using a large Polaroid frame for my photo, but in the end I went with a wood veneer Polaroid accent.  Hopefully that's okay!

A close up of the actual letter that she submitted and her autograph:
And the Mickey detail that I like to include on all of my Disney pages:
I really love how this one came together.  Kind of vintage but with some whimsical elements.  This old Echo Park collection really came through for me!
