  3. Now this is how I think of the lazy days of summer. Your memories of working at Disney must have influenced you when making this adorable tag. I love it! Thanks for taking the challenge with us at the Mod Squad.

  4. Really lovely tag and a fabulous cornet.
    Thank you for joining my Gingham challenge this week at Allsorts.


  5. Not only is the tag adorable, but the staging as well. I bet you have a lot of interesting secrets about working at Disney. Staging is probably a good one! Nice job. Thanks for joining us at Fantabulous Cricut.

    1. Disney was a fun place to work & attention to detail as far as keeping things clean was always important. Hard part of the job in foods areas was cleaning the freezers when I worked closing shift which was most of the time. Kept the silver polished in Silversmith Shop. Spoon rings were popular. Disney provided the costume clothing and you turned in your outfit each day and got a new one that day or next. Have a Bee-utiful day!
