Hi! I am a relatively new scrapbooker and had some questions. i made a complete scrapbook of our trip fram last year. This year I want to make dd a special autograph book for the characters to sign in. I guess it would be like her own mini scrapbook. We have several of the different kinds of autograph books disney offers. This year I wnated to do something different.

So my questions are:
Do you deocrate the pages before hand or once you get home?
What kind of pen is best to use on the blank scrapbook pages?
How do you best proctect your books while on vacation?

Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance for your help!

I am pre-scraping my daughters autograph books this year. This is something I never thought I would do but I found some really cool ones on Twopeasinabucket and just fell in love with them.

If you aren't familiar with that site do this:
twopeasinabucket . com (don't know if we are allowed to post a webpage)
Go to Peanut Gallery
Go to search gallery
type in "disney autograph"

That should give you many examples. :)

I am doing mine on 8x8 spiral scrapbook.

I thought about scrapping it after but I really wanted the characters to sign the finished page. I couldn't keep track of which scrap is supposed to Cinderella's and which is Belle's.

I used to just use the disney ones and trace the signature onto vellum for our scrapbooks. I am excited about doing something new. :cheer2:

excellent advice! 2peas is great. Check out the work by disneydreamers. They have done some amazing autograph books--and they share.
Go to Peanut gallery, then search gallery,then put disneydreamers into the "by username" slot.
Have fun!
