Wishes around the Web ~ Part 3 with Mary of Capturing Magical Memories

If many of you are like me you don’t have many photos of the Wishes firesworks but you still want to capture your memories of Wishes in a scrapbook.  There are ways to do this without having many (or any) photos and I am going to show you a couple of ideas.  I am doing these digitally but I have made them simple enough that traditional scrapbookers should have an easy time recreating them.

This first page is with a photo from the night my husband asked me to marry him.  He asked me right before Wishes started in the rose garden outside the Swan Dock.  It was magical and slightly embarrassing as I heard the round of applause when I said yes.

The photo that was taken minutes before he proposed is the focus of the page.  I then journaled the story of that evening to preserve the memories.  It is a simple page but a very meaningful one.

Another idea is when you have no photos at all.  I googled up a Disney photo of Wishes and the lyrics to go along with it.  It is ok to use an official Disney photo in your personal albums – you just can’t sell it.  To complete the page I also added one photo of us from that day and voila we have a cute Wishes page.

I hope these gave you some ideas to capture those memories from Wishes or other events where you may not have many photos to work with.  Remember the purpose of the album is to capture our memories.  It may not be perfect but down the road they will be there to share and remember.
