Walking Right Down the Middle of Main Street USA

To finish out our Disney trips as kids, I continued with the same idea of using events, not worrying about dates. I'm really proud of how these pages turned out! I asked all of my family members for short memories of going to Disneyland with my family, and I left a couple of journal areas open so mom can go back and add her memories!

We all loved Dumbo, especially when Michelle and I became old enough to go by ourselves. Di-cuts came out of same Disney packet.

I love this page! I used a square punch to cut out the squares, and cut a border off a page for the Mickey heads and stars. Black ribbon is under the cutouts. I also love that all pictures are backed and that it shows some great pictures of us on different rides

I tried really hard to use similar color themes with both of these pages and I am happy that I could use colors to tie two different "events" together.

I love the stickers on the ribbon here! I feel like these pages are relatively simple, yet are very visually appealing! I love all the different pictures as we grew up, especially our matching outfits!

To close off Disneyland from when my sister and I were really young, I did some random funny pictures that didn't really fit anywhere else. This "catch-all" page is something I normally do not like to do, however, I'm very happy that I was able to show all of these things. I love the paper(also out of Disney packet) and how great the white lettering looks.

Well that ends Disneyland section from when we were very young. I'll add pictures soon of more Disney trips!

Just a Bunch of Characters!

Dun dun dunnnn...Drum roll please. The long awaited pictures of the Disney scrapbook have arrived. I know. It's taken way too long. Life has been C-R-A-Z-Y. But enough about me. Here are the pictures of the first 5 sets of pages. Be prepared to see awesomeness!

The fist double page shows my family with different characters throughout the years. I love the way the "film" effect turned out and love the di-cuts and stickers I got in a Disney stuff pack.

These pages highlight some special moments when my sister and I were very young at Disney. The left side has pictures of some of our very early encounters with Mickey, and the right has us showing off Disney tickets. (I decided to go with the theme of pictures, rather than date. My sister is two years younger than me, so obviously this made more sense for this book).

One of our favorite rides was autotopia. I didn't necessarily want to dedicate two pages to this ride, however, we had tons of pictures of my sister and I with different family members through the years, and I thought it was appropriate.

I love the far left side of these pages. I like how it used ribbon, paper, and a di-cut of mickey. These pages were very special to my mom because all of the pictures are taken with one of my great-grandmothers. They didn't get to go with us to Disneyland very often and everyone remembers these special occasions.

I think these pages turned out really well. I was able to fit lots of good pictures with characters, but also make the pages visually appealing. I love the picture of my dad with Tweedledee and Tweedledum. I love that we have so many great pictures.

Well for now that's all. There are still plenty more pictures to come! If you have any questions about how I made the pages or if you are interested in having some pre-made pages made for your family's Disney vacations, be sure to comment!
