Each spread in this album is picture-heavy, and that's how I like it. I did include quite a bit of journaling, and I may go back and add more later as I remember things.
I started the album by pulling together a "kit" of items to use. I thought that this might help streamline the process as well as keep the pages of the album cohesive in colors and patterns.
Here's a shot of part of the items in my "kit."
And here's my album:
|I love this cover page. The stamps are from past Studio Calico kits and I inked them with my Chalk Edgers in Coltsfoot Stemens, Garden Grass, Raspberry Pie, Blue Jay, Rusty Keys, and Teal Damask.|
|We surprised the boys with this trip. They had no idea we'd be going to Disney this year, much less TODAY! Seeing the look on their faces was priceless.|
|And then we surprised them with their first plane flight! They did great! Most of the items on this page are from October Afternoon's Travel Girl line.|
|The little baggie contains some journaling from our first day at Disney World.|
|The yellow polka dot baggie contains our creased and ragged Magic Kingdom Map that we carried in our pocket the whole day as well as a Times Guide.|
|This bag contains some confetti we collected after a parade.|
|This envelope contains several of our receipts from the trip as well as some extra fast passes that didn't make it into other pockets.|
|Had to have a Mickey Balloon. Isn't that a given?|
|More rainbow stamping using the same colors I used on the first page. Stamp from Studio Calico.|
|Keeping it real, folks, keeping it real.|
|I had to include this epic quote from Wilder. We still repeat it throughout our days at home. He is so funny. As a side note, Fantasmic was an utter disappointment to all of us and Bowen couldn't figure out why it wasn't a "Happy Show."|
|Used the fabulous Studio Calico Thataway line for this spread.|
|This bag contains maps of each park along with the Times guides for the week we were there.|
