My Love of Modern Family & Downton Abbey

One of my favorite shows on tv right now is Modern Family.  I absolutely adore that show.  And when a reference was made by one of the characters to the show Downton Abbey (probably my favorite show EVER), I immediately typed that little quote into the notes section of my IPhone.  Seriously. 

So as I was scrapping away one day and stumbled across this unscrapped picture of the sign leading into the now defunct Toontown at WDW, I decided to put that quote to good use and make it the title of my layout, despite the fact that Downtown Abbey and Modern Family have absolutely zero to do with the photograph, with WDW itself, or the overall layout (other than my reference to both!  hehe

It's Toontown, Not Toonton...

I love, love, love the Abroad collection from Studio Calico.  It is by far one of my favorite collections ever!  The background paper on this layout is from said collection and works so well here on so many levels.  It just makes me smile.  Otherwise, there is a broad mix of manus in this layout...some Pebbles, a little Bella Blvd, Echo Park, and of course, October Afternoon.

I honestly have no idea what manufacturer the arrow and circle stickers are from...but I feel like if I sit here staring at them long enough I'll figure it out.  I'm very tempted to say Echo Park.  If you have any ideas, please let me know in the comments!

Much, much layering of stickers and a little die cut from Jillibean Soup (Smiles Look Good On You).

Supplies:  patterned paper - Bella Boulevard, Crate Paper, Echo Park, October Afternoon, Pebbles, Studio Calico;   letter stickers - October Afternoon, Pebbles; vellum die cut - Studio Calico; stickers - Echo Park, October Afternoon; washi tape - Bazzill, Cosmo Cricket, Freckled Fawn; die cut - Jillibean Soup
