The Happiest Place on Earth

Seven years ago, we had a family vacation to Disney World. Ignatius was 5, and his cousin, Amy, was getting married in Orlando. After the wedding, we spent some time on the grounds. It remains one of my all-time favorite trips we have taken.

When I returned, I "digiscrapped" the event in a Power Point for the web. When I saw Cathy Zielske's sketch that required nine different pictures of various shapes and sizes, I knew what I wanted to do. I picked certain representative shots from the Power Point, resized them, and... voila!... a layout for Week 9.

This layout focuses again on line as a design element. I like the layout a lot. In real life, the photos are really large and dominant. Once it's photographed, the pictures look smaller because they are on 12 x 12 inch paper.

Of course I had to find some fun Disney font for the page. I still have other stickers and such, so more Disney pages are in the future. Maybe they can wait for Max's turn.

I remembered how much I hate setting eyelets... grr. But I tried to get a visual triangle of them on the layout. The journaling card was a download from Cathy. It is slightly bigger than the photos around it, and I like its look on the page.
