Me and Mickey's Birthday Hop!

Hello and welcome to 
Me and Mickey's Birthday Hop
You should be arriving from: 
If you are catching us in the middle or have gotten lost along the way please head back to 
Michele @ www.michelegreen.com

Today we are celebrating a fellow crafter's birthday, along with Mickey Mouse's birthday! Rexann's birthday is today, November 19! Mickey Mouse's birthday was yesterday, the 18th. I have seen some great work from the crafters on this hop, so enjoy & 
Happy Birthday Rexann!!
Love the swirls on the Tim Holtz embossing folder.
I just got the chance to go to Disney World for the Not So Scary Halloween Party and we had an amazing time. My daughter and I were joined by my cousin, Allison who also recently celebrated a birthday. I made her this fun album with memories from our day at Disney World! I started by picking the color set I wanted to use and cutting a bunch of Mickey heads from Mickey Font.
After getting all the Mickey's I started putting pictures on pages and making a list  of other cuts I wanted to add to the pages. The Mickey Font head with the Gypsy Wanderings pumpkin face (thanks hide/contour button) was perfect for the inside cover page.
I added the fun need for speed cut off Sports Mania to the Tomorrowland Speedway photo and Designer Calendar hearts to this moment when my daughter squeezed Flynn Rider (From the new Tangled movie)
The Tinkerbell page had to have a little Tink shadow and the fun "Halloween" cut is from Word Collage.
I had so much fun working on this book. It is my first YourStory project. I bought the machine for a steal and have only used the laminating function so far, but I really wanted to make this fun book so I had to try it out.
I was so pleased with how well it binded my pages (about 19 of them). I had the YourStory photo and did not feel it binded as well (plus the larger one does bigger sizes.) What a fun fun fun hop, plus I linked this up over at Craft Junkie Too T.G.I.F. Link up. Tomorrow The Hot Scrap Assistant takes it down to his final 4. I hope you will check back in for that.

  3. your projects are always amazing! I love these books. We took the kiddos to Disney this year, but I just didn't think they were ready for the autograph books. We are going to take them again in 2014 (at ages 6 and 7). I am so looking forward to that trip!

  16. What an adorable book!!! I'm really glad you mentioned that you made it with a YourStory. I JUST got one of those this week, and I laminated something to make sure it was working, but haven't tried a book yet. I'm really surprised you were able to fit 19 pages in! The book spines look so tiny, I was scared they wouldn't hold more than a few pages. Thanks for the info!
