I'm back from my trip and ready to show you how the mini book turned out!
The folks at Bay Lay Tower thoughtfully left a big wooden tray on our sofa, and I quickly claimed it to lay out all the supplies I had brought, to lay out the book, and to drop off things I picked up at the parks during the day. I worked just a tiny bit on it every night.
Here's my cover. It used to be the cover of a Little Golden Book, but I cut it all apart and punched holes in it with a cropadile. At the time I intended to add some more to it but I haven't.
On the inside front cover, I added some Mickey/Minnie plastic washi tape around the edges, a big Cinderella sticker, and wrote in Disney 2010 in case I forgot when this trip happened. The first page is from the cover of a VHS I bought that had the wrong version of Cinderella in it. It was some low budget animated version, not the Disney classic. I threw everything away except this insert.
I know Cinderella is not the princess who said this, but it seemed very appropriate as I counted down the days until we left.
On the back of the Cinderella cover I wrote the details of how the trip came to be, and added some 3d Disney stickers from Walmart. The next page was a blank vellum page. I was digging that when I made the book.
A tribute to my favorite part of 101 Dalmatians, The Twilight Bark.
On the back of the Dalmatians page I added another 3d Mickey.
I cut I cut a square out of Disney scrapbook paper to add a bit about our bags and another an inexpensive Mickey sticker for the next page.
Hannah waiting at the airport with an Ariel sticker on the left. That's all I have for that day.
I used a book page to separate the trip days. An office sticker gave me a spot to write which parks we went to each day. I used a Mickey head punch to get those little Mickey heads. I wrote the day number on those, then used a glue stick to attach them to the page. On the right is the start of Day 1!
