  1. I love how you made the pictures span over more than one space. Great Display Tray.

  2. Wonderful, Nancy! What a lovely reminder of your trip. The Chantilly papers are perfect and whimsical -- without being "traditional" Mickey Mouse stuff.

  3. Great job Nancy. You are inspiring me to use the frame I bought.

  4. Love what you did with this frame. What a great reminder of your vacation. I love all the little touches.

  5. so much fun! i love how you made the ears!

  6. Love the Mickey in buttons! Now I want to go to Disneyland. Really like that you used Chantilly for this project and not the more traditional Disney colour.

  7. I am SO stealing the Mickey Mouse head button arrangement for a friend of mine. :)

  8. Great tray, love the Mickey button creation.

  9. Very nice reminder of your trip! I love the Mickey ears made out of buttons :)

  10. Love the content. Do you think circular rugs would go with any of this? I just bought a whole ton of them and have been placing them in every room of my house :]

  11. I never thought of that! haha. Actually, i love the idea of setting the month of April as a Home Decor month. <3
