Back from Disney

Hi everyone!
We are back from an AWESOME week in Orlando, Fl.
Did I say it was AWESOME?! It was!! :)
We had some rain everyday but somehow we managed to never get wet. I don't know how that could happen since we were in the parks every day!!

Anyway, I haven't scrap my trip yet (you know I will do it though) ;) but I have a page that I made for our trip to Disney last October that I didn't show you yet. It was published over at getitscrapped.com though, so maybe some of you have already seen it.

As you can see, it's a double page layout. I love double pagers when I have lots of busy photos with lots on them!

So for this page I chose my 7 happiest moments and I kind of made a little story around each photo.

First happy moment: Arielle meeting Ariel! Precious. I love how my Arielle put her legs together to mimic flippers. :) So even if this picture wasn't the best one, a little blurry, the light is not right, the colors are off, I selected it anyway. I also like how we can see that Arielle is happy.

Happy moment number 2: Arielle in her first _______ !! She was having so much fun, not scared at all, arms up in the air, smiling!! It was priceless!!

Happy moment #3: We had a character dining with Winnie the Pooh and his friends at the Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom. I love this photo because it's one of the rare photo I have with my parents. And I love that Maya (my smallest) is blowing Tigger a kiss. She was VERY afraid of all the characters but Tigger got a kiss. I was happy. :) Under the photo I tucked 2 Gold doubloons I grabbed after the Jake and the Neverland Pirates show at Hollywood Studio. 

Here's the second page:

Happy moment #4: a photo with Mickey, and the 4 of us TOGETHER on ONE photo!! That's specious!! I like that I layered a fast pass and a Mickey sticker under the photo. Even if the ephemera don,t always match the photos, you know, at the end those 2 things are way more at their place than this Ranger false ticket stub, don't you think?

Here's another rare moment where Maya is interacting with a character. She's holding Minnie's nose. :) Do you see the back of a ticket with the Disney logo on it? And the little golden Micky that I found on the floor? ;) I also used some black and white Disney patterned paper and added the orange patterned paper that I used here and there throughout the whole layout.

Happy moment # 6: the Halloween decoration. It was GORGEOUS!!! I use to see Disney in December or in May. It was the first time that I saw their Halloween decor and I would have photographed every single thing!! Notice my Halloween patterned paper?? On the left page I used some paper with black cats on it. They are from the same collection.

Last happy moment: Arielle meeting Belle. She was SO SO CUTE!!! She was holding her dress like this and putting her hand like that, every time she would meet a Princess. It was awesome! Oh I love her! :)

Finally a word on my title work: I cut out the Disney with my Silhouette. I used the Disney font that I found online. 

Voilà!! :)
And off I go scrapbook a little more. ;)
Ah it feels good to be back home and craft again. :)

I love how happy the kids look!

Random question, is your handwriting always in French? Or do you alternate? How do you decide?

Hi Nat! First, thanks for your comment!! :)
As for my journaling, I think that up to now it was always in French. I don't feel confident enough in English to write a full decent text. Often though I will write my titles and subtitles in English. I will choose English over French when the title is an expression that I cannot translate easily or when it just doesn't sound as good in French. Sometimes I also go for English when I can say it in a shorter way. :) Now I'm just hoping my girls will be strong enough in French to be able to read my texts later on.
