Back from our very first trip to WDW!!!

I just wanted to let you all know that my family and I returned from our very first trip to WDW!!!! (on Friday night)

We were there from May 27 - June 5th! 10 Days!!! We had a great time and are now trying to rest from a very busy 10 days with very little sleep.

I will try to post pictures of our shirts and other goodies in the next few days.

I met a very nice DISer and her family in the bus line at POP century (sorry, I did not get her name) and also met and visited with Bayou Mickey and his wife while in line at Magic Kingdom. They were both very nice and it sure is nice to put a face to a name. (I hope your adult only trip was fabulous!). On our very last day, I actually saw a man and his daughter in one of my designs. They were in the lobby of POP and I tried to catch up to them to introduce myself but couldn't. It was very cool to see one of my designs in person. (It was on the 5th at around 2:00 pm and it was a man and his daughter with my lego Star Wars design on the front and my Star Wars name fill on the back - if it was you please speak up.)

We did so much over our 10 days - it is almost a blur. I will try to hit some of the highlights over the next few days. I will be working on my Photopass CD as well and hope to be back designing in the next week or so. I just wanted to let you all know!

Thank you all for your kind words. I have never done a trip report before and since I only post here, I will just post a little info here. I am not sure how much information you all really want to hear.

For today, here are pictures of all the things we made for the trip!

Here is a picture of the window clings we made... I was sure to paint them with the white (vinyl? - I'll need to find the can to let you know for sure) spray paint so that the white areas were white and not clear.

Credit for the license plate design is Telynn, the DIS design and Star Wars Weekends design is Dom13, the nametag is ImTooExcitedToSleep, the family at the top is Leonsmom (now Tracie is customizing these), the group one at the bottom is one of my former Disney designs and the remainder of the designs are donatalie.

Kid's Journals - Cover was made my orchjoe (I did personalization) and the back cover was using Joe's design and Andrea Mosaic software. It was a mosaic of all of my favorite Disney pictures of the past. All of the inside pages were Natalie's (Thank you so much for working so hard to get them done in time for my trip!)

These were the mints we made to share in the park. Credit goes to Telynn for the original mint matchbook idea! I made one (the ones on white and tan) to give to the Castmembers that went with the celebration theme - some graphics were 'borrowed' from Natalie. The second set were the dalmatian ones. We made these for a sort of scavenger hunt. The mints said "you have been spotted". Anytime we saw any designs from the boards, we would give them a mint. More on this later...

Our penny tubes and DIS badges... We made the large tubes but I would suggest if you have more then one child to make the smaller ones. They were so heavy that I only carried one at a time. The badges were just printed to paper and covered with clear contact paper, then hole punched and attached to my bag. Credit for the designs go to Natalie.

Mousekeeping Envelopes - Credit goes to Bayou Mickey and Natalie. The only one that I am unsure of is the one on the top left. This belongs to someone else, please speak up if it is yours.

Epcot passports - credit goes to Natalie

Planning Book - Credit for cover design goes to Natalie. I had it sectioned off in general information in the front and then individual parks in their own section. It included all planning information and numbers, Some tips I wanted to remember from the boards, maps, dining suggestions and menus, blank pages to keep some notes on the trip, etc.. It was the size of 1/4 sheet of paper.

Shirts in next post...
