Disneyland Album Done! Whoo!

We went to Disneyland in early May with my in-laws.  I've been working on my 12x12 Disneyland album off and on ever since.  It was a lot of fun, but I'm happy to be finished now and be able to show it off!

I knew I wanted to devote a 12x12 album to the trip (as it was our 3-yr-old's first time there and we took tons of pictures).  I had several 12x18 poster prints made up at Wal-Mart (about $10 each) and then cut them to fit the entire 12x12 page (the tea-cup layout uses the entire 12x18 photograph).

I went a little crazy with the bling on this album (Disney is the magic kingdom and nothing says that quite like rhinestones), and saved lots of time (and money) by purchasing paper piecing die-cuts of the Disney characters on eBay.  I found Mickey, Pluto and Goofy for $.99 each!  I couldn't have made them myself for that price and that saved me having to purchase the Disney Cricut cartridge, too.

Thank you so much for sharing my vacation memories!  Hope you enjoyed the journey!
