The hop starts with Kimberly of KP Kr8tions Bringing Memories to Life. You won't want to miss a single calendar event not to mention the weddings, graduations, birthdays -- ok, you get the idea!!!! 

I chose to create for Mickey Mouse Day which is celebrated on November 18th.  I just love everything Disney, don't you?

I decided to alter a composition book that I purchased at Staples.  I covered the notebook with a retired Close to My Heart paper called "Giggles and Grins".  I thought it was just perfect for this project.  Mickey was cut out using the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge.  Mickey was cut at 7".  I stamped the diamond shape on the spine of the notebook using a retired stamp set called "Ticket to Ride".

The line-up for November includes:

Kimberly -
Anita -
Lynne -
Lucy -
Jearise -
Janet -
Miriam -
Edwina -
