All the Disney Princess' and al the Disney characters have their arch rival/villain -- the puppies in 101 Dalmations has Cruella DeVille, Ariel has Ursela, Sleeping Beauty and Maleficent, Alice in Wonderland with the Queen and Hearts, Peter Pan and Captain Hook or the Evil Queen with Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs.....

Which Disney Villain will be displayed today to cause you to cringe and cheer is what our hop is dedicated to. Sit back, get ready to hide your eyes when the villains appear!!!

If you just happened to stop and visit me today, I'm thrilled but would love for you to start at the beginning of our hop as not to miss a single villain! If you arrived from then you are on the right journey!

Mary Poppins Just a spoonful of sugar blog hop

Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down in the most delightful way . . . a strong gust of wind sends allt he prospective nanny's helter skelter cue Mary Poppins to float gently down to the front door with her umbrella to fill the position of a nanny for 2 cantakerous chidren whose father is a banker! Add Bert to the mix of characters who sells kites, cleans chimneys and has a "tea party" where everyone floats to the ceiling with Bert's uncle and his infectious laugh ..... and then the magical carousel that takes them on a fox hunt! What wonderful sparks of imagination.

Mary Poppins was based on the book series by P.L. Travers and in 1964 Disney made this into a full-feature musical film with Julie Andrews as the starring role of Mary Poppins who stays until the wind changes direction and Bert, Dick VanDyke, sells his kites.

We will showcase projects both from the book along with Disney's interpretation of Mary Poppins as who wouldn't want a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down! If you just happened on my doorstep by mistake as the wind set you here, I wouldn't want you to miss a single adventure and would love for you to start at the beginning with Lynne ( You should have arrived from which means the wind is going in the right direction and you floated down gently!

In the immortal words of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, we have some wonderful sponsors that are giving a spoonful of sugar to help you on your way be posting a comment on each of the hops along the way!
I did this layout from a trip to 
Disneyland a few years back.
(I am way behind on scrappin')

one picture.

As the wind changes, so does Mary Poppins visit ends on my blog but I want you to see more wonderful scenes of Mary Poppins thus I'm sending you off to

4th of July Blog Hop

Welcome to our 4th of July Blog Hop! What comes to mind, when you think of the 4th of July? Being with family, barbeques, picnics, and fireworks? That's what comes to my mind.  But, few know the actual reason we are celebrating this holiday. We know it has something to do with America, the flag, and independence.  On July 4, 1776, United States of America declared its independence from Britain.  So today is America’s Birthday! Happy Birthday, America!

Today we have a lot of wonderful, talented women wanting to celebrate this holiday, with you. In case you get lost and want to start at the beginning, go to Pamela’s blog
