Look!! I acutally got the list done before the end of the month. Aren't you so proud of me? haha
Now remember, while the list is Disney-inspired YOU CAN TOTALLY TAKE ANY TYPE OF PHOTOS WITH THESE PROMPTS. THEY DO NOT HAVE TO BE DISNEY RELATED!!!!!!!
Basically all you have to do is use the daily prompts to take a photo and share it anywhere you'd like - Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, your blog, etc. Wherever you like to share your photos and make sure to always tag your photos with #disneyfanphotoaday.
The point is to challenge yourself and have fun. So you missed a day (or a week or a month), who cares! Catch up if you want or just shoot today's word!
Think outside the box!!
Make your shots purrrrdy.
Hope lots of you will play again, and tell all your Disney Geek friends to play too!!

The gallery is bustling these days! I can see that many of you were BUSY over at the MouseScrappers Speed Scrap marathon. I'm so happy you came and posted your LOs in my gallery too!! I wanted to take a quick minute and show you guys some of the beautiful creations that have popped up in the gallery in the last little while.
Before I get to the layouts - I just wanted to let everyone know: I updated the gallery so you will receive email notification when someone comments on your work! FINALLY, right?? I couldn't get it to work like that before, but with a little coding tweak I finally figured it out. So now you'll finally know right away when someone comments on your page! Yay!
Ok - some highlights . . . (all images are clickable)
I LOVE this layout by Susan. I'm a sucker for blocked pages and this one is a beaut! And what cute topiaries! I would love to see those. Look how she's used the flowers and leaves and strings to sort of frame the center photo. SO adorable.
Well what first caught my eye were these ADORABLE photos! I don't think I've ever met Captain Hook in the park, but I hope I get to!! I LOVE all the layering Lindsey did and the title with three alphas! SO CUTE!!
This was done by one of my awesome Britt Girls, Jan! I LOVE this page. Obviously I LOVE pages that are filled up corner to corner, top to bottom. That's why I have done so many "Fill 'Er Up" templates lately. And this totally makes me smile!! The Haunted mansion gate in the corner, the cool glowy effect on the photos, the title right on top of the main photo. LOVE IT ALL!
Is this page not the cutest? Stacy has some FUN Christmas pics of her kids and she scrapped them up so cute! I just love that alpha - it adds just the perfect touch of sparkle.
Now, mixing all the Pooh characters onto one page doesn't always work, and sometimes comes off as really jumbly, but Karen ROCKED THIS!!! It all flows from character to character. I put this in my faves to scraplift someday.
This last one is from one of my Britt Girls, Justine. I LOVE the entire look of this layout from the clean blocking, to the adorable color scheme, the perfect mixing and matching of kits. And what cute photos with the blocks spelling out Happy Birthday and his age!!! I am so totally gonna log this away for a birthday photo idea.
I'm happy to see so much awesome scrapping getting posted in the gallery!!! I hope to continue seeing lots more.

Hi everyone! I'm excited about my new release today. I've got an all-new pack of templates in my "Fill 'Er Up" series. And a pack of little calendar card templates too! So let's get started, shall we?
"2013 Calendar Cards"
These Calendar Cards are unique to the Britt-ish Designs shop! Each little card is a template, so you can add your own colors, papers, textures, even styles to create the perfect custom card for your layout, P365 pages, weekly layouts, or digi-journals. I made them for an upcoming project (that I've yet to reveal. . . heehee), so I figured I'd package them up and see if you would find them useful too!
Ok - here's the page I created using one of the new Fill 'Er Up Templates 4 pack:
And here's what the Britt Girls created! (I'm so excited for my new girls to be debuting their first official Britt Girls layouts!)
Amazing, huh?!! I think the new girls have injected ALL of us with an extra boost of mojo. This week's work was outstanding!!!
Ok. Time for the Show Off Slideshow! Enjoy . . .
All of the Show Offs this week are getting my new 2013 Calendar Cards. I hope you can all try them out and see how you like 'em!! The Show Off email won't be going out until Saturday morning, so please be patient.
(find out more about Show Offs here)
I hope you all have a happy weekend! Happy scrapping.

Ok, I know you're all going to think I'm biased because I'm a part of the site, but the Capturing Magic blog is quickly making its way to the top of my must-read blog list.
There are so many amazing articles written by fellow Disney moms (and a dad), photographers, scrappers, and just plain Disney NUTS all from the amazing Capturing Magic Team! A fabulous new post pops up almost every day that I'm inspired by!
Some of my favorite articles recently:
"How to Carry Your DSLR to Disneyland" by Katrina (all Katrina's articles are amazing)
"Capturing the Cast Members" by Steph
A Photo Scavenger Hunt: Getting Teens Involved In Capturing Memories" by Kim
"Personalize Your Disney Home Movies" by Krista
Of course the Capturing Magic podcast that I get to co-host is still going strong. I hope lots of you are listening and enjoy it! Our latest episode (out yesterday) is all about the recent Photo Walk through Disneyland that Steph got to do with Katrina. Katrina is full of amazing photography tips, she's such a knowledgable and talented photographer.
I definitely recommend listening to this episode if you've ever wanted to take more magical, beautiful photos on your Disney vacations. You'll find all our links and show notes on the Capturing Magic blog too.
I hope this post doesn't come across as too much of a lame "plug". I really am passionate about this blog and think everyone should read it! Put it in your RSS reader and give it a try. I think you'll really enjoy it and have more success creating and documenting your magical Disney memories.

Well, it was a long and painstaking process. But . . . *deep breath* I'm ready to announce my new Britt Girls!!!
I am so thankful to EVERYONE who applied for my team. I truly mean that. I took time and carefully read every single application and spent hours pouring over hundreds and hundreds of beautiful layouts. I'm amazed at the talent out there! I sent emails out to every applicant, so if you didn't get an email, PLEASE let me know.
Wayyyy too many talented scrappers applied to be Britt Girls! So, in addition to these new Britt Girls, I also have some Guest Britt Girls scheduled throughout the coming year. Thank you to all of you who accepted Guest Spots (you know who you are). I'm looking forward to working with everyone!
(Hope I see you all at my Speed Scrap tonight!)

Hip hip hooray!! I have a new kit today! I'm so excited, so let's get right to it!
"Hot Mess: Pixie Stye"
(Be sure to read to the end of this post! I have a cute little add-on freebie for you guys.)
I'm really happy with how this kit turned out. It's so happy and bright and sparkling with magic. I hope you all like it too. It's obviously inspired by everyone's favorite fairy. But its so fresh and bright and cute, it can be used for so much more!
I scrapped a couple pages with the new stuff.
Next up, I have a Show Off slideshow for your enjoyment.
Everyone who sent in a Show Off this week is getting my "Hot Mess: Pixie Style" as their gift. Be sure you send in a layout for our next Show Offs in 2 weeks.
(find out more about Show Offs here)
And lastly, I have that add-on freebie I mentioned earlier. Hope you guys enjoy it!
Hope everyone has a pixie perfect weekend!
