Epcot Flower Garden

OK...back to my Disney pics! Our trip was almost a year ago, and I still have so many good times to document. Immediately after our trip, I went through and edited all my photos, compiling the best into a photo book that told the story of our trip. My 11 year old son helped me compose the captions that went on every page! It took the pressure off of me, as I knew I didn't have to scrap every single memory since they were preserved in the book. (I used one of those Winkflash coupons which allowed me to add up to 100 pages for free, so the entire 100 page book was around 30-something dollars! Can't beat that!)

We arrived at Epcot after the International Flower Festival was over, but there were still signs throughout the park. This topiary display of Lightening McQueen and Mater met us at the entrance to the World Showcase.


I loved this paper collection, This & That Graceful, by Echo Park. It had so many great florals and I wanted to use them all! So as not to be overwhelming, I punched large circles from several of the sheets to add to my page. I then cut others out from the patterned paper to layer over the journaling spot, which was used more or less to ground the embellishments, and not for journaling. 


Expect more Disney pages in future weeks as I still have an envelope filled with photos for me to scrap.

So, so pretty!
I am loving that collection more and more!

I like the idea of making a photo book with photos at least. I really need to do that for some of our trips that I still haven't scrapbooked yet!
