TI"double guh"ER

How do YOU spell "Tigger"? Winnie the Pooh's bouncy, trouncy, flouncy pouncy tiger friend spells it in a cute, unique way: T, I, double "guh", ER. His silly spelling presented me with a wonderfully different title for my layout. Having snapped various photos with every single one of the characters during our lunch at the Crystal Palace Restaurant, and scrapped a few already, I was running out of captivating title ideas. I was glad to have thought of this one! 


Here's the tape and stitching technique I shared a few weeks ago, and used again! In case you missed it:

Washi Tape Heart Technique:
  1. Lightly pencil in a heart shape (or other simple shape) on cardstock.
  2. Place strips of washi tape edge to edge horizontally to completely cover the penciled in shape. 
  3. Using a fairly tight stitch, sew heart shape twice. On the second pass, don't be too precise if you like the carefree, sketchy look.
  4. Peel up the strips of washi outside the sewn heart and tear carefully where the thread perforated the tape.
After layering my patterned papers and photo, I reached way back into my stash for the metal embellishments (frame and flowers) that grace this page. Their bright orange color complimented our tiger friend and the colorful KI Memories papers that I chose.


And look! I have remembered to include a little "hidden Mickey". Can you see him tucked in among the suitcases?

Truth be told, it was tricky finding time to chow down between all the character visits, but this restaurant remained one of our favorites, both for the food and the bountiful photo ops. Can't wait to return one day!
