Disney Social Media Moms Celebration Highlight Reel

Thought I'd make a little video to tell the story of our weekend at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration! We had SUCH an amazing weekend and are so grateful to have been able to attend!

Disclosure: Our family was invited to the 2014 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. In exchange for a conference fee, I was provided with room accommodations, park passes, several meals, and admission to conference events. I was not asked to write about our experiences at the conference or about sponsors at the conference. While posting is not a requirement, we had so much fun we just want to share some of the magic with you.

When Maggie asked me if I'd contribute to her class Photo Connections - about photos and how we connect to those photos I couldn't say no! It's no secret that I LOVE photography and it's not just because of the gorgeous images - it's the emotion the photos evoke!

DIY Autograph Books

DIY autograph books - attach a marker with string/ribbon and you're good to go! - from All for the Memories

Disneyland THIS WEEK! We are so excited to be attending the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration this year. The boys have been busy planning their time at the parks (P even has a "to do list" going). 

They both wanted a new autograph book and we talked about just bringing 4"x6" cards so we could use them afterwords for artwork or to slip into my Project Life album. We decided that would be too hard to have the characters sign and keep track of so together we made these!

They are 4"x7" so that one inch on the left can be trimmed off to a 4"x6" size if wanted! The pictures on the front they chose from the Annual Passholder calendar from this year (sorry no downloads on those) but you can use any photo you want!

I have the front image adhered to chipboard with scrapbook paper to the inside and on the white foam board on the back (for a more sturdy signing surface). I applied a coat or two of Mod Podge over both sides of the front and back covers.

It's easiest to create a template for the holes (just punch holes in a piece of cardboard or chipboard where you want them and use it to punch the rest of the holes). I trimmed out 4"x7" cards from plain cardstock (just a pack from Target or Walmart).

That's it! We'll attach a Sharpie to each one with ribbon/string on the bottom ring to hopefully prevent us from losing it. I'll have to share it once it's completed!
