A few fun memories from Disney - Part II

  • Disney Charm Bracelets

    I love mine. Thanks girls! A special thanks to you, Wren for exchanging my original defective one for the shiny new one!!

  • HATS!

  • Me losing my sunglasses & phone at 2 separate locations within 45 minutes. It was the beginning of a very forgetful time for me. I lost several other items but am happy to thankfully say, I got all of them back. This is not a FUN memory but it is memorable. It was very embarrassing and they said they are going to Velcro things to me next time. :(

  • Jackie's somewhat odd but very adorable infatuation with Donald Duck.

He obviously shares her feelings - I think he is proposing in the above photo! You should hear her giggle when he comes around. It is priceless. I think I might be jealous of their special thing.

  • Aerosmith's Rockin Roller Coaster

    Another not so fun memory for me but it is worth mentioning since Cheryl & Jackie got a real kick out of my reaction to the awful ride. I just noticed in the photo that it is sponsored by Hanes. I find that very appropriate since I needed a clean pair of underwear after the ride. I was so out of sorts afterwards that I took a 3 hour nap and still woke up with a headache. I will try most rides at least once. I know I won't be going back for more next time. AWFULLLLL!! I will admit that the tea cups make me green as well.

Disney Pillowcase

Yes, I said pillowcase....I made these super cute and very easy pillowcases with the help of the Tucson Quilter's Guild and my good friend Darlene. It is called Easy Schmeezy Pillowcase and it is just that. Try one for yourself and you will see how easy and fun they are to make. I am not a seamstress by any stretch of the imagination and these little babies made me look good! The Mickey theme was a hit. We all had matching pillows at The Contemporary as well as Beach Club Villas. Mine now sits on the overstuffed chair in my scrapbook room - just in case I need a nap between projects. Aren't they cute? I love the white on white polka dot fabric. I will be making more for sure.

Scrap Room Door Hanger

I got these out of the dollar bin at Michaels. They were for a little boy's room. I covered them with paper and flowers. I printed the text on my computer and cut them out with my new Spellbinder Nestabilities - I like them & look forward to making some more goodies with them! I tied a bow on top and had a cute little gift when I was done.

Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album - Disney Style

These are fun fun fun to make (and simple too)! I made these little mini albums to give to my Disney girls at our Scrapper's Dream Vacation at Disney last week. I took 3 empty toilet paper rolls and flattened them. I ran my bone folder back and forth over the edges to try and flatten a little more.
Next I covered them with paper and embellished with lots of Disney goodies and paper. This is also a good time to set them under a stack of books for a few hours to flatten them some more.

I made the tags with my cricut Mickey Font cartridge and design studio. As an after thought, I embossed one with my cuttlebug. These tags are good for adding photos or journaling.
I bound it with the Bind-It-All and added ribbon. All done!

I am happy with the finished product and I think they liked them! I am looking forward to seeing them after our great photos are added.

A few fun memories from Disney - Part I

Always laugh when you can. It is cheap medicine.

Having a cold Mickey bar on a HOT humid day!

Playing at Pooh's Thotful Spot even though the sign stressed it was for ages 5 and Below.

Learning new photo techniques from "Click" and "Kodak" (Jackie and Wren).

Laughing our heads off many times and Jackie having to cross her legs to keep from wetting her pants. (You had to be there!)

The Magic Kingdom all decked out for Halloween and the magical weather we were surprised by on the day we visited.

Mickey Waffles!

Four girls and 20 bags.

Standing in our pj's at the Contemporary pool, watching the Space Shuttle lift off over the Florida horizon.
