Meeting Minnie Mouse

Hey there! I turned in my projects yesterday for the final round of the Design Team call at my LSS. It feels great to be done...I am proud of all the work I have created and hope it will be enough to get me a spot on the team. My oldest son asked me the other day, "What if you don't get on the design team Mom? That would be sad." It was the perfect teachable moment. I let him know that what was important was that I had tried my best and that God has a plan for me which may or may not include being a part of this team. Also, that it has been a great experience, that I am glad I tried, and that I am proud of myself and all the wonderful projects I have made.

So, for this final round I was given a huge packet of Disney themed products and asked to make two 12x 12 layouts and a mini album (though not a very small one - 16 - 5 x 7 pages). Only one minor problem...we haven't taken our kids to Disneyland or Disneyworld yet...a challenge for sure! They said it was okay if I just matted where the pictures would be for the mini album (which I did and I love how it turned out). But I had to use pictures on the layouts so for one of the single page layouts I found a picture of the first time I met Minnie Mouse...take a look:

And the fireworks paper was perfect for a 4th of July page:

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July!

I like the Minnie Mouse book because you can add a photo of everytime you meet Minnie...What a great way to see how the family has grown.

You could make these books for each character, b/c I know some people always make it a point to see Mickey, etc.
