Journal to use at Disney

It will be my kids first time to Disney. So I started this journal for my kids to be able to fill out (well, me transcribing their words into the journals) <grin> That way we are able to remember this trip for quite some time.

I worked on this with my heart to make for my kiddos... and definately thought many others would be able to use this themselves to create their own memories. A thank you to rumblytumbly for helping with the cover. (I put a couple options in the document)

Here is where you download this file:
http://www.4shared.com/office/XMIEs2...-designed.html for you to download it and change whatever you'd like to, to make it yours. It is a Powerpoint document (I am SO NOT a designer and do not have any advanced knowledge at Photoshop...so I felt Powerpoint was easy/user friendly) If you would reather have jpegs, I will list them after this log.

I printed this a major office supply store here in town for about $28 for 2 books (one for DD, one for DS) They printed, trimmed, cut, bound and put covers on the front and back for me. I had a bit of trouble at first about printing "Disney". I told them, that I was a stay at home mom, making this for my 2 children, I used clip arts online, that said it was ok for personal use...that it was not able to SELL anything. The mgr decided to do it. Although, he said it was just cause the store was a BIG name. Any local/smalled print store probably wouldn't even question it. Oh, one note about printing centers, they may not have the "Disney" fonts in their computers, so they automatically get changed. I found out AFTER printing. But they still turned out great.

Here are some pics of the finished copies:

Oh one more thing... I made two areas for pockets, one is on the Epcot page, you can slide in your passport. Another is on the second to last page. Print TWO pages, glue and cut around the picture and slide things in. Did I explain that well?? See pictures below:

I had them printed on both sides of 28lb paper. I bought a package of paper at Staples and brought it in with me when I printing, they used my paper. (Saved alot of $$ that way) (i.e. regular copy paper is 20lb weight) 28lb paper is perfect, it does not show or bleed through on the other side... perfect for printing on both sides. Krista
