Disney Memories

I have so many great memories of Disney World.  I grew up in south Florida, so going to Disney was a common 3-hour trip for me.  I remember my first visit to see Mickey was with my cousins, the next one was with my junior high-school class, then my senior class, then several college trips with friends, and then, of course, taking my boys.

As a teenager, the rides were the best part...but after having my boys, the best part was watching their faces light up when they saw the characters.  I would have the camera ready, and Jack would walk Jordy and Rian up to meet Mickey, Donald or Pluto...autograph book in hand.  The boys would smile and hold out their book.  Getting those Disney friends to sign their book was so exciting for the boys when they were little.

These memories prompted me to create a scrapbook that combined autograph cards with photos that are taken when getting the signatures.  I first created this design when I worked for Archivers.  So if those of you who know me from the store think this design looks a little familiar, it is.  My philosophy?  Why mess with success?  I loved the idea of combining autographs and photos in one album so I decided to recreate my original design for Artsy Albums.

I will also do "Disney Princess" albums or other character albums (Winnie the Pooh, Nemo, Cars, etc.) for anyone who wants a custom design.

I miss our trips to Disney...may have to plan a trip for this year....
