Mia introduces Princess to Minnie Mouse - a moment to remember.Read More
Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, is our own personal happy place. It’s no wonder I have so many spreads of the island! The bright colors and playful papers seem a perfect match for Pluto’s silliness and the palm tree is a nod to the setting.Read More
Boy were we surprised to find Jiminy Cricket at Rafiki’s Planet Watch! Mia loved posing him for pictures and then posing with him for my camera. He was so dashing and debonair - Mia said he was just like her daddy. awww…Read More
Lots of different blues and blue-greens going on. The images were all different colors so I used the frames to tie them together and got lots of texture in the glitter curve, title, and paper.Read More
This is one of my favorite layouts! I love the way it turned out - the title, the palm tree & sun, the little bit of patterned paper, the photos, and the memories. I adore the shuttle and its reindeer’edness and the page turned out just perfect.Read More
“I don’t give a Ravencrap” That pretty much covers it!
Our first time at Aventura Hotel and we had a Kids Suite - LOVE! We adore Universal Orlando and I’m a Harry Potter girl so cancer or not, we were going to The Wizarding World. MiaMouse got a picture of me in my house colors #Ravenclaw and off we went.
Choosing a simple template and keeping all the elements in the same set made it easy peasy to complete quickly. #alwaysRead More
I like to take a photo that’s representative of the story and then write about it… the memories, the feelings evoked from the photo. Here, you can see the joy on MiaMouse’s face as she poses with Mr. Kevin - she’s giddy! And he’s smiling like the saint he was. ;)
Mia adored Mr. Kevin and followed him everywhere around the ship. He was so patient with her constant questions and giggles and “Mr. Kevin… Mr. Kevin… Mr. Kevin…” and never once showed frustration or that he was too busy to spend time with her.
She’d be bummed when he had to work somewhere other than where she wanted or needed to be and was thrilled to stumble across him at the Mickey Pool when we’d finished eating after our day at Castaway Cay where - of course - she hounded him mercilessly in Scuttle’s Cove.
Mr. Kevin has the patience of Job and I’m so thankful for his care and kindness to our MiaMouse. She’ll never forget her Mr. Kevin and how he treated her. Pure Disney magic!
What’s your favorite journaling/storytelling method?
“Oh, I could never do that… I’m not creative, I don’t have time, it’s too expensive, I don’t take good pictures, I’ll never get caught up, blah blah blah.”
I’m here to tell you that you CAN do this, you DO have time, it’s NOT too expensive (oh wait…), you DO take good enough pictures, and you MAY never get caught up but you’ll have these memories preserved.Read More
