Disney Autograph Book

I decided that I wanted to make a special autograph book for the girls to take to Disney.  Love how it came out!!  I had a 6X6 album from Stampin'Up! and I cut out all the cardstock from my stash, used the same format on all the pages and just tried to color coordinate with the character.  All the stickers inside are from EK Success Disney , I got at local craft stores. 
I did one side for the autograph and the other for a picture, which I'll put together after.
On the front cover I used a laser paper embellishment from Paper Wizard I found at a local craft store. 
I had fun putting it together!!

Disney Calendar Countdown

We are very excited around here.  At the end of the week we are going to Disney World in Orlando. 
My two girls are so excited! It will be their first time. 
I saw this idea of a countdown calendar in Pinterest and loved it. I decided to make one:

Took a big Elmer Project board I got from Michael's and traced the Mickey face and cut it with a exacto knife.  I covered it with black cardstock and embellished it with Disney Stickers.  Got the clothe pins at Target. Print the numbers on my computer using the Disney Font. I punched them out and also used my scalloped punch from Stamp It up to make the borders.   Glued it all together and tied a little matching ribbon around each pin and Voila!!  The girls love it!!

The Paper Shelter Design Team Call
