Animal Kingdom Lodge

We absolutely loved our resort!  Here are the last of the pictures from our first day there...lol.
The views were amazing!  The animals were fun!  And the kids were exhausted!

Here is the view of the grounds.  Love all the beautiful foliage!


I used this sketch from Stuck?!


This is view of the savannah from our balcony.  The giraffes were very active every day.  We spent a lot of time sitting outside watching them run around and enjoy their lunch.


I used this sketch from Sketch N Scrap for my inspiration:


Walking around the grounds was beautiful and so relaxing.  We managed to find quite a few little spots to sit and relax and just enjoy our time together.


I played along with Authentique's sketch challenge for this one.  
My banner was handcut and tied together with jute.


Just being silly and making sure the kids knew they were being watched by Disney Security.
I've (luckily) never seen one of these cars before.  I just had to add it to the scrapbook!


I flipped a fun sketch from Scrapbook Steals for this one:


After an early start leaving the house, a long flight, unpacking and exploring our resort, the little ones were all tuckered out.



The clock from this sketch from Creative Craft World was my starting point for this page.  I added a few little elements from a Nikki Sivils collection.  The doily was painted with a fun paint dauber.


Now I think these are the end of the pictures from THIS resort...lol.
We are ready to get a fresh start and enter the Magic Kingdom.

You have been forewarned...there are LOTS of pictures to come...and that's just from Main Street and the Entrance.

Looking forward to sharing our magical trip with you!

Have a magical day!
