We're going to Disney World!

YES! It looks like my oldest daughter is healthy and we can go on our trip to Disney World! I'm so excited! When she was first diagnoised (bilateral Wilms Tumor), we put our plans on hold, not knowing if she'd be up to going. But since she had her surgery in November, we decided we NEEDED this trip. Something that was NOT hosptial, chemo or sick related!

So, I've been preparing for this trip since we got home in December. Not a whole lot of time for the planner in me but I'll take what I can get! I created a few things for our family.

Here's the first one:

This one is Samantha's Autograph book. I didn't want to buy the hard bound book at the park, yet I still wanted something cute but easy to take apart and place each signature with the picture of my daughter and that character. I used plan white cardstock for the pages, cut out a Mickey head using my Expression, printed Samantha's Autograph Book on the 'puter, cut chipboard to place at the front and back (to stabilize it) and then used my Zyron to laminate it. On the inside there is my information and resort so that in case it gets lost, it can still be returned to us.

Each girl has a favorite color. Can you guess what Samantha's is?? So after I bound the pages with my Bind It All (from Cindy at StampinScrapin), I added each girls favorite colors to the wires to dress it up. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out.
Here is Emily's:

Her favorite color is yellow but I was afraid if I printed out Emily's Book in yellow it would be too hard to see. So I compromised and used Purple but used yellow ribbon. She loved it.

Now of course since it's not hard bound, they needed a clipboard to have a hard surface right? Here they are:




Each girl picked their colors to paint the clipboard. Then I made Minnie, Mickey, Goofy at 5" and Daisy, Donald, Chip, Dale and Pluto at 4" on the Expression. Each girl then took the sheets of Disney stickers and decorated to their hearts content. They're pretty cute, I think. Not bad for a day's work.

Of course that's not all. I also made personalized t-shirts for the WHOLE family. Since my MIL is coming with us, I did one for her too. I didn't take pictures of all of them before I packed but here are a few:

I can hardly wait to get on that airplane and go! It won't come soon enough for me!
