Fun Smiles


  The final couple of days was just about having fun with Mr J in the parks. We arranged two Character meals at Cape May Cafe and Crystal Palace because he had still not turned three yet and it was most like the last trip where he would eat free. We also did it [...]

Party Time


  Towards the end of this trip we were all about just having fun.  We also had a chance to meet up with my Aunt and Uncle for lunch at Sanaa at the Animal Kingdom Lodge.  They had also been here running the Wine and Dine Half Marathon. That same evening we headed to [...]

Young at Heart


  One of my favorite projects is a poster print I did recently (which I still have yet to get printed….) showcasing pictures of Fred & me throughout our various Disney trips.  I love that it showcases all the “young at heart” moments we have at Disney! Kit Used: Unknown   [...]

Hanging With Mom


  One of the luxuries of my husband being a Disney travel agent is that their annual conferences are held at Walt Disney World or at another Disney property.  That means I get to go as a spouse and relax while he is in meetings all day. On this trip I got the chance [...]

First Haircut


  This page is one of those memorable childhood memories – the first hair cut. It took Mr J over 2 years to finally have enough hair to cut and we purposely waited for our Disney trip so we could have it at Harmony Barber Shop in the Magic Kingdom. It was magical. The [...]

Warm Hugs


  We are back at Disney World today with some more miscellaneous photo pages.  This page has many photos of Mr J post first hair cut at Crystal Palace on Main Street USA in the Magic Kingdom hamming it up for the characters. He actually was lucky enough to be asked by Winnie the [...]

Fun in the Magic Kingdom


  After Thanksgiving in Epcot we took the time to play in the Magic Kingdom. Some of the fun things we got to experience: Taking photos of the boys on Astro Orbitor.  I have a fear of this ride and was thrilled when a cast member told me I could go up and just [...]

Castle Pocket Page


  Great layout using pocket pages to make a huge title page for your album.  This one is just a full page of cards that make up a full image of Cinderella Castle in teh Magic Kingdom. Kit Used: Unknown  

First Sight


  My favorite traditional page? It’s currently this one about my 4 year old’s first glimpse of the Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom from atop Dad’s shoulders. Kit Used: Unknown  

Cinderella Castle


  Disney photos are usually full of bright colors and can be a little busier with all the background, etc, so I try extra hard to make sure the focus is on my photos and they don’t get overwhelmed on the page.  This is evident on this page where Cinderella Castle in the Magic [...]

Character Meets


  These page layouts come from some miscellaneous photos we took during our 2013 family vacation. As you can see they have a lot of characters… Our family tradition is to visit the Crystal Palace on each trip. We get that early morning breakfast and it is how we know we are really on [...]

Holiday Festivities


  The holidays at Disney World are so much fun.   There are so many things to do and here you see some of the high points.  Wandering the World Showcase in Epcot to see the decorations and hear the story tellers.  Getting in a Mickey's Holiday Party in the Magic Kingdom.  Seeing the Candlelight [...]

runDisney Boys Weekend

Vroom Vroom


  No parent is ready for their child to take the wheel but if it is one of the Tomorrowland Speedway cars in the Magic Kingdom it may not be so bad (except the whip lash from hitting side to side). Kit Used: Unknown  

Princess for a Day


  Girls love Disney princesses. So in 2011, we decided to splurge and take them to lunch at Cinderella’s Royal Table.  My mom, our own personal Fairy Godmother, made sure their hair was just right for meeting “royalty” and we headed to Cinderella’s Castle.  As each and every princess made their way to our [...]

Time with Grandpa


  Special memories are always created at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.  Some of the best memories are those when little ones go for the first time or multiple generations of the same family are there.  Watching Grandpa with his grand kids warms any heart. Kit Used: See an Elephant Fly Digital Kit   [...]

RunDisney Boys Weekend


  This page spread is from Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend in 2013. My husband was supposed to run but an injury stopped him. But he did not let it stop him from going. Instead he registered Little Man for a runDisney Kids Race and off they went for a boys weekend. Little Man [...]

Very Merry Party


  Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom is absolutely wonderful.  This party is filled with holiday cheer.  From the decorations, to the castle dripped in icicles, to the cocoa and cookies.  Did I mention it snows!!  Rumor is that there is a parade too but someone keeps sleeping through it! Kit(s) Used: [...]

Holiday Fun


  On one half of the spread I focused on the Christmas aspect of our trip. Since we were there after Thanksgiving Christmas was in full swing. We got to see the Osborne Family Festival of Lights and attended the first Mickey’s Very Christmas Party of the year. On the the other side I [...]

Just Past These Doors

Fancy Bathroom


  Disney is known for their attention to details but this may just take the cake.  If you are in the Magic Kingdom you need to head toward the Tangled themed bathrooms.  This really is over the top.  From wanted posters of the ruffians Rapunzel encounters to the ever popular frying pan weapon.  And [...]

Sweet Serenade


  Magic can happen at any time when you are at Walt Disney World.  In this case it is right in the middle of Liberty Square in the Magic Kingdom.  This cast member in colonial attire serenades this lovely woman. Kit Used: None Software: Adobe Photoshop Elements   [...]

It’s About Time


  One of our favorite things is to get to the Magic Kingdom before park opening to enjoy the opening ceremony.  It starts with a 'Good Morning' song/dance number but the excitement really starts when you hear the train whistle.  Then all of those wonderful characters get off the train to start the day.  [...]

In From the Rain


  Rain at Disney will drive you indoors pretty quickly.  So looking for the nearest show is always a good idea.  The Hall of Presidents in the Magic Kingdom is always a good option as you may pass it up on a regular basis otherwise. Kit Used: Unknown  

Icing on the Cake
