Sorry I'm just getting back to you. It was a LONG Labor Day Weekend!

I'm not really picky about titles. We have done both Halloween and Christmas at Disney and my youngest still trick or treats and I have lots of pictures from previous years to scrap. We also have lots of hayride/pumpkin pics and tons of Christmas to be done......so I guess what I'm saying is "anything goes". That should make it easy.

How about you? Anything in particular you would like me to focus on? Do you want your pieces to be just general holiday stuff, or do you want them to be Disney specific? Can you tell me a little about the Disneyland halloween party activities? Name of parade, fireworks, is there a song? I did manage to squeek in a little retail therapy this weekend and picked up some great fall stuff. Now to get crackin!

Have you done Disneyland or WDW at Halloween and Christmas time? Have you done the Halloween party at either, or the Christmas party at WDW? I'm excited to get started on these titles for you. I have a couple of new cartridges that will be perfect for this time of year.

As far as for me, we are attending the Disneyland Halloween party again this year. It is called Mickey's Halloween Party. The special fireworks for the party are called Halloween Screams, the special parade is called Mickey's Costume Party Cavalcade, and they have special trick or treat stations as well as photo ops with costumed characters that we do. We also go apple picking every year at a apple tree farm, and we go to a pumpkin patch to get our pumpkins each year. We carve pumpkins each year as well. My kids don't go trick or treating (except at the Disneyland party), but they do dress up for the party. I scrap mostly Disneyland, Disney Cruise or WDW pictures, because that's what we do most! I do have some pictures that I still need to scrap from last year's party with characters. We had pictures with storm troopers; Phineas and Ferb; Captain Hook, Peter Pan and Wendy; and Perry the platypus. Hopefully that helps you out. If you need more info, don't hesitate to ask away.

We have done both the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party and the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Disney World. Loved them both. Hallowishes (fireworks) is a favorite of ours, as is the trick or treating and the Boo to You Parade. We also love the different christmas trees/decorations and I have some fantastic pictures of all three boys sitting on the lap of the best santa ever at last years christmas event. Just some ideas.

I, too, basically just scrap Disney Trips. I have one book for each of the boys for their special occasions, but I don't typically scrap everything. I include Christmas and Birthdays and stuff like that. The everyday stuff gets labeled and put into a photo album. If I scrapped everything I would need three extra days in the week just to work on scrapping! They each also have a book for their years and journey in scouting. Maybe someday I will have the time to do more, but for right now that's about all I can get done (and even then I'm having a hard time keeping up )

Can we make sure that favorite colors are included in the questionnaire?

Thanks. They are really cute and they look like lots of fun to make. One other question. The first six titles were for fall and halloween only? Will we make Christmas ones later or were they just forgotten in the listing?

Yes, There will be some later on... I wanted to do banners- but thought 2 wasnt challenge enough and 4 of 1 type might be too many so I split it up.

Oh no! No rush, just wanted to make sure it was on there, so we know what colors to use in our handmade items (Favorite characters would be helpful too).
