Disney Smash, for autographs...

Next week, we are traveling down to Disney World! We are going with some of Phil's family and are super.uber.duper ecstatic!! Phil and I took the kids once before, three years ago.  I was surprised that trip to realize the kids were as much about collecting autographs from the characters as hoping on rides and be-bopping through the parks.  They LOVED the characters and were totally moto about collecting their siggies.  

I always have a couple extra Smash Books (the small ones) just hanging around.  Cuz Smash books are like toilet paper.  You gotta have a stash.  Ready. Waiting.  It makes the perfect autograph book!  Tiny.  Inexpensive.  And able to be customized.  I left the pages very blank (Niamh can add little details later).  Added pockets.  Covered the prints that wouldn't work with signatures...and, in a matter of 20 minutes, had a book ready for the princesses to add their names to:).  

Now I just gotta make one for the little guy.  
And go buy more toilet paper Smash Books to replenish the stash!


I will make sure I update the blog a couple times (over the next two weeks) with photos from Disney/ our travels:).

I'm excited to share the magic with all of you!:)

  5. Krista, I love your Disney Autograph Smashbook. You are so creative. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful time at Disney. I live about 2 hrs from there and I try to take my girls there every couple of years. It never gets old. My daughters actually took me there for my 40th bday and we had a blast. You are never to old to enjoy the Magic.
    Hugs, Shannon

    Love this - the music was great - it was? Your daughter will treasure this forever - I want one!! We took our children and then in later years we all went back with our grandchildren for our 40th anniversary and stayed at the most awesome house only a 3 minute ride from the park - all of us under one roof - huge pool! Great memories - I have a smash book in my brain forever! Hugs

  16. Absolutely awesome, and I agree, how on earth can you do this in only 20 minutes? It would take me more days to make something like this. But man i just love it, and I´m sure your daughter does too, and I´m really exited to see, what you´ll come up with for your son now too???
    Have a wonderful week-end now and a great trip to Disneyland for all of you, when that time comes. We´re on our way to visit the great USA here in next week, so we´re pretty exited too, even we´re not going to Disneyland, but anyway, it´s wonderful exiting ha ha ha.

  18. Oh what a super idea. We didn't do the whole autograph thing, I wanted to but my boy said he was too old :0( but I want to go back one day and I'll definitely do a Smash book about it, and get some signatures myself, you're never too old...right?! Enjoy it, can't wait to see you pics. Take care Zo xx
