Create the best Disney storybook of all

by Brian Bennett

Keep those Disney vacation memories alive and fresh forever by creating a one-of-a-kind scrapbook detailing your family’s one-of-a-kind magic vacation.

All your dreams did come true. Disney was amazing. A kingdom filled with princes and princesses, Mickey and Minnie, Tigger and Pooh, Lightning McQueen even Hannah Montana. Smiles and rides and treats and thrills. And for that brief, shining moment, your family was magic too. If only you could put all into a storybook and bring it home.

Well, why not? You can preserve that magic and your memories in a one-of-a-kind Disney memory scrapbook. A scrapbook detailing all the magic that was your family’s. Think of how fun it will be for your family to relive the fun and excitement for years to come.

So gather up the “stuff” you’ve already got – ticket stubs, passes, napkins, autographs, matchbooks, guidemaps, passports, postcards and all those pictures. Don’t hesitate. Don’t organize too much, wait too long or wait for the right time. Just do it. There is no wrong way to scrapbook.

Scrapbooking is one of the fastest growing craft activities – one in three homes has someone involved in scrapbooking.

Now for the basic supplies – background paper (Disney, of course), glue, stickers, rub-ons, alphabet letters, ribbon, scissors, art pens, photo corner mounts and page kits. For the more experienced, there are die-cut templates, craft punches, stencils and so much more.

The scrapbook itself usually uses 8-1/2 x 11 pages with clear page protectors, like those in traditional photo albums. Get one, then pick from the thousands of available themed stickers, stamps, rubber stamps and embellishments. There is a wealth of material that makes scrapbooking easy for even the newcomer.

To make your scrapbook really say “Disney,” there’s so much Disney scrapbooking material out there – whether Mickey and Minnie, Winnie the Pooh and friends, the Disney princesses and “pixies” like Tinker Bell, the characters from Cars, Toy Story, Monsters Inc., It’s a Bug’s Life even Hannah Montana.

Sit down with all those supplies and your memories, and watch that scrapbook come together like, well, magic! When you’re finished, look around and you’ll see how many other one-of-a-kind scrapbooks are just waiting to be made – vacations, hobbies, sports, pastimes, the good-old-college days, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, friends and family (weddings, babies, birthdays, holidays, pets) – and even your family’s own heroes.

If you want that scrapbook, but just don’t seem to be able to find the time to put it together yourself, just send your material out to a company that provides “custom memories albums” and relax!
