Scrapping the Magic Kingdom: Jungle Cruise Contest

I would like to thank Debbie Neace for sharing her layout with us on last week's post! She did not use Linky, but did leave a comment with the the to her layout.  I want to share that with you all now!! Click on the image to go to the original post at ScrapBookBytes. Her inspiration was castle.  (Do not fear Linky!)

Our tools for this week are a little different!! I will be providing you with the color palette for the Jungle Cruise and the font (called Jungle Fever).  I will also be providing you with a free word art that I created using this font and some elements from Connie's Animal Crackers Zoo Pals elements.

Your mission, should you accept, is to create a layout using this word art!  Okay.. I know everyone hasn't been to Disney yet (why not????) so I am going to throw in some of my photos from the Jungle Cruise ride.  You may feel free to use these photos for this contest. (Using my photos is NOT a requirement.) 

Once your layout is created, you can upload the link to our post using the little Linky tool.  If you have any trouble at all, please feel free to drop me an email at coyotelady(at)  You will have all week to work on your layouts. Once Linky turns off, no more layouts will be accepted.  One lucky winner will receive a $5 coupon to Connie's store!  

The winner will be selected using the random tool.  I will include all of your layouts in next week's post.  Both Connie and I are really looking forward to seeing some participation this week.  So let's get started with those tools!

There are two Jungle Fever fonts available at The top font is Jungle Fever Regular NF. The bottom font is Jungle Fever Inline NF. They are on the same page so I would grab them both while you are there. Click on the font sample image or the words A new window will open for you to download the fonts.

The color palette for the Jungle Cruise is next up. It is not absolutely necessary you follow the color palette, but it does give a great starting point.  While this color palette works great with the sign, you'll find lots of greens and animal shades on the ride itself.  (Right click on the color palette and select the save as option to save the color palette.)

While we are talking about the ride, I would like to interject that there was a time this was a very serious ride based on Disney's True Life Adventure Series.  Since Animal Kingdom has opened, and there are "real" animals at the park, Jungle Cruise has fallen from serious to downright comedic. Jungle Cruise is believed to be the funniest ride in DisneyWorld. The boat narrator will go through a number of jokes during your ride.  You can read many of these "jokes" here.   Bad jokes included, it can be a nice ride and the displays still hold merit. Jungle Cruise is one of the Fastpass rides and does operate in the evening.  Actually, I want to ride it in the evening some time if only to see how it is handled. Guests in wheelchairs or ECVs may remain in them for the ride. The ride itself is just a little over 9 minutes long.

Now to share some of my photos.  To download a photo you would like to use, right click and choose save as option.  This works for both PC and Mac users.  

Lastly, the word art! The preview is 600 x 600. The download will be the full size and contain both shadowed version and no shadow version.  Click here  or on the image to begin your download!
This is so exciting!  I can't wait to see your layouts!! Until next week........

I see I used Linky correct and I took a liberal amount of thought into the word "cruise". Thanks for fun challenges. Debbie Neace

Yes, Debbie, you used Linky correctly! All you really need to do is click where is says add link here. :) Awesome, huh?
I love seeing those thumbnails, too. Better than just the links.
