A Very Punny Ride

These are just some pictures from the Jungle Cruise ride line at Disney World.  It's one of our favorites - it's silly and relaxing.  The journaling is about how the tour guides used to be able to ad lib their spiel.  That must have been funny if you had a guide with a great sense of humor.  I guess this became a problem at some point so now there's a Disney approved script they need to follow but according to one guide, there are several options for each "joke point" so the ride is different each time.  The passengers play a part too - if there's someone a little outgoing on the boat, they might interact with the guide which also makes the ride unique.

Use it or Lose it Challenge #15 - The Jungle Cruise

There is My Mind's Eye and Die Cuts with a View patterned paper and Bazzill cardstock.  The title is anchored on some grey polka dot washi tape, using Jillibean Soup chipboard letters which I outlined with my trusty sharpie pen along with Simple Stories letter stickers.  I punched out some circles and stars and added some Oriental Trading pearls to the corners.

I can't say that I am pleased with this layout.  At first, I liked the wood grain with the blue paper.  It needed something and I thought it the red border would help but I think it looks too heavy.  I choked on embellishing and went with stars but I think they look western although looking at it on my screen it actually feels Christmas-y.  I don't know if I should pop the whole thing off the blue paper and put it on kraft or something else.  Of course that means there's the risk of messing up the whole thing because the blue flowers are glued down to the wood grain.  To get out of this challenge, I'll leave it for now and maybe reconsider it in the future.

What do you do when you really struggle with the final product?
