Let's Scrap - Lightening McQueen

On our arrival to Florida, Disney Springs was promoting the new Cars 3 movie, it was the first day of the event and after checking into our hotel we had a half an hour to visit with Lightening McQueen and friends. I hadn't told the kids in case we didn't get to Disney Springs in time to see it all, so they were excited to see the life size Lightening McQueen waiting to greet them! 

The pics of the meet and greet were perfect for the Let's Scrap sketch!

Check out the sketch:

To create this layout I used:

Stampin Up: Regals Designer Paper

On our walk down to see the It's a Bugs Life attraction there was so much to see - all the animals carved into the rock that lined each side of the pathway. It was amazing. To scrap the couple of pics I managed to take I used a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy
