Zippity-doo-da! Zippity-Ay! My, oh My... What a wonderful Day! Plenty of sunshine...

Um... it's been raining and snowing EVERYWHERE, even here in "Sunny" Southern California! and I'm only about an hour away from Disneyland!!!

Anyway... We've needed the rain SO bad, so really... I'm pretty glad (plus I love SOUP, and it's totally that kind of weather!)...


Back to my post... ahem... So... I still can't find my cord (for my Cricut Explore [either one of them] from back in NOVEMBER) so I'm doing a blast from the past... totally still Disney related!!!
Way Back in 2012 it wasn't THAT long ago, We took a little trip (only an hour away...). To Disneyland! Marissa wanted ALL of the Disney Princess Autographs and hell if I was paying their high prices for autograph books... So, I took the Mickey head and input the word "Disney" and the year (from the Mickey Font). I welded the year together... but was careful not to weld anything else...
This, my friends... is a cardstock-covered double cereal box concoction! Yes! You say THAT fast 5-6 times...
I even made sure I lined the inside and signed it... Maybe I should've signed it "Mom" but I didn't... obviously...
I used the We R Memory Keepers Bind-It-All. (It really, REALLY does!) I've had it for years and love it.
The characters loved it, too! Here are two special signatures she got that day... those lines are WAY longer than anyone really wants to stand in, so that's mostly what we did that day...
Can YOU figure out whose beautiful script this is?

As you can see... I've been a repurposer and "responsible crafter for years now... Yes... I'm totally rationalizing my hoarding and my expensive habits... Don't judge, Judy! No matter what, I'll always be a recycler, too. Again... rationalizing my pack-rat habits and saving everything habits...  One day, I'll even get those pictures in there, too! I just have to locate them, first...

 Up next is Sarah! Where she'll splash a little more Disney Magic on YOU!
Here's our line up in case you get lost:

  9. great project! how did you lose your cord?!?!? oh my! You need to find that sucker!


    1. Haha, Alicia... I went to a crop/craft night, took all my machines, and am still searching for the right "bag" that I may/may not have placed the cords in...

  10. This is great. I had this plan when we took our daughter to Disney for her 7th birthday. I ran out of time, luckily one of her grandmothers bought her the autograph book. I added a photo of her with each princess on the opposite page from their signature. She loves it.

  11. I love this autographed book . I made one for my little next-door neighbor when she went to Disney

  12. Cool job. Great idea. TFS and for being part of this fun hop. Good luck.

  13. So awesome to come up with your own autograph book!! Way nicer than those cheap ones you can pay a fortune for that fall apart the minute you get home...yes I did that! And what a waste! We ripped the autographs out anyways and put them in our album! LOL! Thanks for joining this hop! Hugs!
