*NEW* Sign It, a COUPON and a FREEBIE!

Howdy everyone!  I got a couple things to tell you about today!

A couple months ago, my good friend Steph asked me to create a autograph book for her to surprise her kids with on their trip to Disney World over the summer.  I was happy to oblige and got to work.  This project took quite some time but I am VERY happy with the results and I am soo excited to show it to you all!

102 total pages of goodness to mix and match and create your own awesome autograph book!  These pages can be printed in a photo book, printed at home or even used digitally in a scrapbook layout!  And it is 20% off for the weekend!  So fun!

You can check out Steph's post all about the autograph books she made and even see a SUPER cute video of Drizella saying how much she loves it!!

The autograph book pages are sized to work perfectly with the 6 x 7.5 size photo book from AdoramaPix and they were super kind enough to send over a coupon so you can get 50% off your book!  But you have to hurry because the coupon won't last forever!

I seriously love this whole project and I really hope you all do too!

And just so you are aware, LOL, the couple Iron Scrapper kits I released this month are now in my shop and 20% off as well!

And last but not least, a FREEBIE and a COUPON!  YAY!

Use this coupon to get a EXTRA 10% off Sign It:

My creative team member and bestie HeatherW, if you haven't checked out her AWESOME Disney Character Site (she has met over 200 Disney characters!!!) then you really should, made a super fun freebie for ya!  A cover for your autograph book!

Disney Day Trip #9: 6/18/13 - Disneyland!

I literally have over 1000 photos from this day at Disneyland.  Just Disneyland.  LOL!  With my cousin in town from Italy for her sisters wedding, we thought it would be a good time to do a all day trip.  And I mean, ALL day.  So tiring.  LOL!

Thanks to the amount of photos and the fact that I can't even begin to sort through them all without wanting to claw my eyes out, I am gonna use the photos I posted to Instagram from this day.  Have no fear, there are still a TON of them!

First up, the sting of $92.  At least she did it with a smile on her face!

Kelly walking down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A.

I always forget how much I love getting here right after the park opens.  The light is gorgeous and the crowds are light.

I always wonder how well these horses are treated. I like to think they are spoiled rotten!

The mountain of space.

I think it is pretty safe to say that if this is how aunt Donna rode the ride, then she should probably not ride it anymore. Lol!!

Despite having a crazy amount of hair, Kelly loves to try on hats!

In my seat and ready for a voyage

Underwater friends.

Lagoon statue!

Love this view!

The lagoon is always so pretty on a bright, sunny day.

They are no help at all.

It's a world of laughter...

Castle was looking gorgeous and usual.

This was seriously one of the cutest things I have ever seen.  We stopped in Bibbity Bobbity Boutique just to show Kelly and my aunt what the big deal was.  Then we saw this little one.  It was her 5th birthday.  She was soo excited and her face when she saw her makeover in the mirror for the first time was PRICELESS!  Soo adorable.

Ready for our grand circle tour!
