A Mouse and a girl

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

It's Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday challenge again and this week we have another temporary twinky. Eight year old Jameson Ednie is this week's featured Twinkie, Rebecca Ednie's little man and he has issued an amazing inspiration challenge!

Yep! Mickey and Minnie were his inspiration! But he did not stop there! There is a sweet story that goes with it:

Mickey is a Park Ranger working in the national forest. One day on his patrols, he hears a cry for help. He sees a beautiful girl mouse with tears on her face because she has fallen while hiking and broken her leg. The gallant Mickey comes to the rescue of the lovely Minnie, administers first aid, drives her to the hospital, waits for her to be treated and drives her home. They fall in love and the rest is history. However, a few months later, when Mickey goes to pick up his tuxedo on the morning of their wedding day, they have accidentally rented out all of the mouse-sized tuxes! So Mickey shows up anyway in his Ranger uniform. Minnie starts up the aisle and is surprised to see Mickey wearing his uniform but she doesn’t care because that is how he looked when she fell in love with him!

How stinking cute is this?! I will admit that I was a little freaked out at the challenge because Disney colors on a card are soooo not me, but then I thought about the Disney trip our family took last year and how I've only completed four pages of that scrapbook album. So I created a scrapbook page instead!


I have sorely neglected my scrapbooking since I discovered the fun of coloring stamped images, so this challenge has helped me see the fun in it again. Usually the kind of pages I did took me hours but this one took no time at all! And I really, really like it! I think it shows off the photo really well and the added embellishments don't detract from the image at all.

This photo was taken by me and is probably one of my favorite photos from the trip. My little girl was sooooo giddy at meeting Mickey and Minnie Mouse. Mickey had insisted Syd kiss him on the nose and it started a tradition that lasted the whole week we were there. Syd kissed EVERY character on the nose! Her reactions totally paid for the trip. :D

Ok, so if you think you'd like to play along with our Twinkling challenge this week, all you have to do is upload your card or creation to SCS or PCP and use the keyword MTTSC16. Then leave a comment on this Twinkling blog post linking back to your creation. I'm excited to see what the other Twinkies have created for this challenge and if you want to check them out too, links to their blogs are in the left hand column.

I with ya about neglecting my scrapbooking due to my new obsession with coloring images. I did a page the other day and it was totally awkward for me. I keep telling myself to focus more on the scrapbooking since they will be kept for a long time. It's a sickness, I guess, this card/image thing I got going. lol
