Disney Project Life Epcot Day 2!!!

Hi guys! Oh I have such a fun layout today in my Disney Project Life album! Here, have a look at my process:

So a few weeks ago you may remember I hosted a give-away, and Claudine was my lovely winner. Well, she surprised me with the most awesome pocket letter ever, filled with delicious Disney-themed embellishments! I had to use them as soon as I opened them. Here is the layout I began with, using my photos and journaling cards from Sahlin Studios Project Mouse:

Here is the completed layout, embellishments courtesy of Claudine Fitzhugh:

I began with this fun filler card from Sahlin Studios, and simply added a visual triangle of embellishments to decorate the card.

I still pulled from my own embellishments too, including this circle from an older Gossamer Blue kit:

Simple words and circles here, plus a touch of washi tape.

I absolutely adored these little Mickey footstools, and love the capture of their little feet. I journaled a bit about the magic of seeing these four children playing together, enjoying each other's company, no competition or one-upping, just having fun.

Look at this sweet face, you guys.

On the opposite side of the layout is more of the same place and the different activities they participated in. The piggy banks were most definitely favorites.

They became attached to their piggies along the whole process, and then they had to give them back. So they paused for one moment right before saying goodbye. They are seriously so cute.

This grey The Magic Begins card might be one of my favorites in the entire Sahlin Studios collection. I added the tiny red and white polka dot washi (I am so in love with that washi!) and a tiny bit of journaling.

They looked so cute moving back and forth on this activity. I wish I had made notes of what these activities were, and if we went back tomorrow I would take the time to jot that down somewhere (Disney traveler's notebook, anyone?!). They probably remember, if I were to ask them.

Here is where I wrote about how special it was to see them all together having so much fun. This was our first trip together as a blended family of six, and we honestly did not know how it was going to go. I mentioned how at LEGOLAND there was some negativity and a bit of struggle, but on this day and in these photos that all disappeared. I am so thankful because what will happen is that these four will end up becoming best of friends for their whole lives. They are learning to be the type of people who can adjust and bend and move when they need to, and they are finding that taking risk on relationships is so, SO very worth it.

So my most favorite pretty embellishment in Claudine's lovely pocket letter was this special Disney pin. I don't have any Disney pins, and she included two (!!!) and I decided this one needed to go right here. I snipped off the back (please don't come after me, Disney pin police!) using tin snips, and then adhered it with pop dots cut around the base. Safety precaution if you decide to do this: wear safety glasses or your eyeglasses, and snip it downward into a dish or tray so it doesn't fly off into your eye!

Here is one last look at the layout. I am so much in love with this layout and I think Claudine should select all of my embellishments from here on out. (Or maybe Claudine can show us some of her Disney layouts, pretty please with cherries on top?! For real, Claudine has her own YouTube channel and she has some December Daily videos up that are really awesome, so go check her out and show her some love: CraftyClaudine.
