We made a trip to Disneyland 3 years ago. We went at the end of September, just after school had started. Mason was in grade 4, and Madelyn had just started grade 1. The trip was awesome. We were a little bit hesitant on whether or not we'd go, and it ended up being one of our most memorable trips with our little family of four.
When I came back home, I created a small 8x8 album of our trip. It was an idea I had gotten from a Simple Scrapbooks 'Short Cut Albums' magazine. Do you remember Simple Scrapbooks? Man, it was a sad day once that magazine went out of publication.
Any way, it was this mag [and shockingly, yes, I must have paid $23.25 for it...] Though, there was a time at Micheal's that you could use a 40% off coupon on books and magazines... And I put my name on it, because there was a time we used to get together, a group of us, and scrapbook. But I digress.
Here is the album layout idea I copied, from Rebecca Cooper. I absolutely loved the simplicity of the pages, with lots of photos, and just a tiny bit of journaling on each page, to keep the reader up with what was happening.
And here is the album I bought. In Seattle, at Target in 2005, with my clothing club gals. I knew ONE DAY, we would take our kids to Disneyland. I adored this embossed Mickey 8x8 album. [Miss Madelyn was a mere 4 months old when this was purchased]
So I created a very simple album, to capture some of my favourite photos and moments.
Since then, I have become a creative team member for Sahlin Studio. If you don't already know, Sahlin Studio and Britt Design have collaborated together to create a bunch of different digital Disney themes. Check out all the Disney themes out by clicking here:
It has been so much fun to work with these bundles, and every time she releases something new, I go through my photos and select pictures, and reminisce again about our trip. Here are some of the layouts I've created with the latest kits:

What I know, Disneyland was awesome. We had a fabulous time. At 6 and 9 the kids were the perfect age, to be on the move, all day long. With every release from Sahlin Studio, of new Disney themes, my album gets more and more full. I simply can't wait to go back another time. Imagine all the layouts I can create from another trip. Dreaming of Disney...
