    I have had such a hard time deciding where to start after coming home from our first trip to WDW with over 300 pictures!

    Finally a decision! My kids got a picture taken with 25 different characters so I have decided to dedicate a whole page to each picture. All are really good 4x6 prints and most are vertical orientation.

    Here's where I need your help: How would you "jazz up" these pages? I want the picture to be the main focus obviously, but what little touches would you add to enhance the page without distracting from the photo?
    For instance, the Minnie Mouse pic is with her in her red polka dot dress so I am placing it on solid red paper layered over black, edged with decorative scissors. It looks great and really pops out at you, but it still needs something.

    Your creative ideas are most appreciated!

    I would go to www.stickerplanet.com They have some great disney border stickers and stickers in general. And as an added bonus they are having a great sale on stickers right now.

    How about also buying a mickey punch to use on some of the pages.

    My LLS has a some great new Disney scrapbooking stuff by www.mypapergarden.com - they have a cropping block package that has some neat mats.

    Hope this helps some.


    I still have a trip to do with over 25 rolls of film so I do feel your pain.

    I'm doing the same type of character pages. I try to find something in the picture to go on. Like sorcerer Mickey, I am cutting out gold starts and moons to put on the page, Jasmine and Alladin, I am go to glue some jewels onto the page, cinderella I am going to use light blue and white paper and eyeletes then string ribbon through the holes. Thats all I have come up with so far.

    CM has a Disney snap pack which includes lots of character stickers. It comes with a book that has ideas for many pages using materials in the snap pack.

    I thought the ideas were great inspiration for many of my cruise scapbook pages. The only downfall was that the pre-cut paper was produced for a small book, not my 12x12, However, it worked pretty well and gave me many great ideas.

    Good Luck!
