On Tuesday the 24th our 3rd Day in Florida we decided after 2 days in the Parks, and 1 day of traveling we were ready for a Lazy Day at the Beach.  Little did we know that trip would be anything but Lazy!!!

We had decided of our choices to go to the Atlantic Ocean Beaches or the Gulf Coast Beaches which were an hour further away than the Atlantic Beaches we would prefer the Gulf Coast Beaches because they were said to be warmer and calmer than the Atlantic Beaches.  So it was supposed to be about a 2 hour drive away from where we were.  The Drive was about 2 hours away to the Town we were going to but then due to bad instructions it took us about another hour and a half to get to where we were going and then still did not ever end up on the Island we had planned on going to because we got there about 2:30pm the next ferry out to the Island did not leave until 3:35pm and the Island closed at 4:30pm and the ferry would cost us about $70 to take out to the Island.  So we went to another Beach in the State Park System called Honey Moon Cove Beach system.  We got there just after 2:30pm and they started picking up the Beach Chairs and Umbrella's at about 4:30, so Our day at the Beach turned into 2 hours at the Beach, but all was O.K. we had fun there anyway and the kids got their first taste of the Ocean and making sand castles!!!!

Baby Meadow was about 8 1/2 months old when we went to Florida and she thought the most fun part of the Beach was eating the Sand :)  She got all covered in sand and she was the hardest to clean up when we left she was so caked with Sand and had a Blow Out Poopy Diaper under that cute Mermaid Swim Suit.  However she was so adorable the whole time at the Beach who could care about the Messy Mess she was when we left??  :)
Tucker was not so excited about getting in the Ocean he only got in once for a few minutes and he spent the rest of his time playing in the Sand with Grandma Schlatter and making Sand Castles.   About 2 months after we got Home he came running up to me one day and said "Mommy, I am ready to get in the Ocean now Let's go to the Beach!!!"  Ummmmmm Tucker we live in the smack dab middle of Kansas I don't think we can go back to the Beach anytime soon LOL!!!  Tooo Cute! :)

Wednesday May 25th was our Busiest Day at Disney but also I think our most Fun!!!

Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique is located inside The Magic Kingdom in Cinderella's Castle.  The Fairy God Mothers who help transform every girl to their choice of Pretty Princess, Pop Princess, or Diva Princess, come out to get each girl show them their Princess Make Over choices and then they spend about an hour Making them into a Princess at the end they take a magic wand filled with Pixie Dust and they spin them around in circles saying the statement Cinderella's Fairy Godmother said to her and sprinkling them with Pixie Dust Glitter then they show them what they look like.  It was a wonderful experience and the girls loved it.  Grandma Paula and I wished they had picked Pretty Princess or Diva Princess like Willow's Pretty Hair Piece but Piper and Harley both picked Rainbow Hair Pop Princess.  Willow picked Blond Hair Diva Princess.  They also received cool Make Up to take home, fake nails to take home, Jewels for their faces, a gorgeous Bracelet, and lots of cool hair accessories plus their Hair Piece all for about $52 a girl.

Tucker and Darian went over to the Pirates of the Caribbean Pirates League Make Overs for $29 they received a Pirate leather Sash, A Cool Sword, a Pirate Facial Paint Make Over of their choice, an eye patch, fake Pirate Teeth, 3 Tattoo's, a heavy very cool metal Pirate Medallion Necklace, and a Real Pirate Name and Certificate of becoming a Pirate.  Plus they could be in that day's Pirate Parade if they were around at that time of day and wanted to be in the Parade.

So there you have Page 17 to Page 24 of our 52 page Disney Trip Family Scrap Book.
I will add the next 8 pages in a day or 2 :)  Next up Our Character Dinner with Goofy and Pluto, Then our Days in Hollywood Studio's, and Star Wars Weekends at Hollywood Studio's!!!

Here are the next 8 pages from our Digital Scrap Book I made of our trip to DisneyWorld this summer! I am ready to go back already :) - Tomorrow Piper's 4H Scrapbook!

Hi All,
Well as I promised, I am adding 8 more pages of our Digital Disney Scrap Book I spent spare time on making the last 6 weeks.  Now I have slowly started on the Paper Version which will have more fun embellisments and cute papers ect...   I have a feeling it will take me forever to get that done, but it will be fun to do, too!

So here are the next 8 pages out of 52 pages.  If you want to read the journalling on the Scrap Book pages just click on the picture you will be able to see it large.  Then click your back button on your browser and it will take you back to the Blog Post.  Also if you want to see the first 8 pages just scroll down one post they are on Friday Sept. 23rd's post.  I really can't wait to go back because there are so many things we wanted to do but ran out of time and now that I am so much more into Photography on an Artsy Level it would be fun to go and get more Artsy shots I think!!!  I hope you enjoy!

Tomorrow I am posting Piper's Scrap Book she made for the 4H County Fair that won her a Grand Champion Purple Ribbon!!!  She had fun making her very first Scrap Book Album too :)!!

Page #9 and Page#10 were pictures of things we considered to be our favorite things at The Magic Kingdom.  As I was making the Scrap Book on the Disney Site, I realized I had lots of pictures of our Favorites so I made a 2 page layout of things that were our Favorite things to do, see, watch a show, or do the activity, rides,  and even our favorite yummy treats too!!

Some of our Favorite things from The Magic Kingdom Park were, It's a Small World.  That ride NEVER gets old I love seeing all the pretty things in it and I could ride it several times and see new things each time!  We LOVED Fast Passes they saved us waiting in long lines on so many rides.  We learned how to do the parks without having to wait more than 15 to 20 minutes for a ride, and most rides we walked right onto that is totally the way to do it!! Can't wait to go back!!!  Other Favorites were The Mad Hatter Tea Party, Tea Cups ride, Big Thunder Mountain roller coaster, Peter Pan's Flight, Haunted Mansion (another favorite from when I was a kid and my parents took me), Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear ride and many many more!!! :)
 Epcot  Day #2 we went out to Epcot we decided our first Day at Epcot would be spent visiting all of the Countries from around the world taking in the culture and letting the kids get Pass Ports and doing their pass ports in each country.   Our 2nd Day at Epcot later in the week would be more for Doing Future World, and meeting all the Characters.

 And here below are pictures and words on all of our Favorites from the Epcot Parks, we had so much fun on both days there I could easily spend another whold day just doing things we wanted to do but missed!!!

Well next time I will share the next 8 pages from the book which includes pictures of our Day at the Beach on the Gulf Coast, Hollywood Studios, Star Wars Weekends at Hollywood Studios, and many Favorites from Hollywood Studios!! :)

Have a Stampendous Day!!!

The First 8 Pages of our Scrap Book I spent the last 6 weeks making. It sure was fun and I love how it turned out. Also Link to the New Blog! :)

The First 8 pages of a Disney Scrap Book
and all about
My newest Blog (link to it) and Creative Project
Project 365. 

Hi Everyone I came today to write 3 posts.  One to Share the First 8 pages of our Disney Photo Scrap Book I have been working on whenever time allows the last 6 weeks.  I will share 8 pages a day several days this week until I have shared the whole book.  We have been working little by little on the Paper Versions of our Disney Books too so I have more to share of them too! :)

I am also going to share two posts from my NEW Photography / Project 365 Blog.  I joined a Photography Group this summer and about 30 of us from all around the country have started the 365 Journey with our Photography we all started on different days some as early as the end of June, and some as late as October 1st.  We all have different goals for what we want to accomplish with our P365's.
My Good Friend Jess and I have a goal in common we both moved up to the Professional/Semi Professional Camera Levels this last summer and we both want to not just learn our Camera's backwards and forwards and all that we can do with them (They are amazing camera's) but we also want to LEARN Photography and Post Picture Editing in Photo shop CS5 and Lightroom3.

I started my P365 on September 1st which was also Meadow's 1st Birthday so I took 947 pictures of her throughout the day and ended up editing my favorite 80 some pictures and it has taken me 3 weeks to finish editing them so I could do my first post on my new blog.  Heather's Heavinly Photogations.  I have my first two weeks posted now and will be adding more picture posts nearly daily now.
So if you are one that comes to the blog only to hear Family Stories and see Pictures my Photography Blog will now be updated nearly everyday with Pictures and Fun Family Stories, and this blog will have some of that, but more of my 
Stamping / Scrap Booking / Creative Projects Blog.

Our Disney Vacation Digital Scrap Book 
Pages 1-8 of 52

There were about 9 Covers you could choose from and a couple of them were real Leather covers.  I choose this one because Cinderella's Castle and Tinkerbell seemed to be a running theme throughout our Disney Vacation.  Our real cover is personalized in the bottom right corner it is embossed in the same Silver Foil as the picture and it says 

Schlatter Family Disney Vacation
May 21st - May 31st 2011
 Page 1 - How our Trip Came About.
 Page 3 and 4 - The 4 Disney Park Icons,
and the Amazing Views of 
Cinderella's Castle

 Pages 5 and 6 - Travel into The Magic Kingdom, 
and Part of our First Day at Disney

 Page 6 and 7 - Our First views of Cinderella's Castle and,
First Day in the Parks, Journalling and Pictures.

 Well there are the 1st 8 pages I hope you enjoy them.  It took me 6 weeks to make this book so that is a big part of why I have not had much of a chance to Blog in the last month and a half or so.  The Book was a Blast to Make I just deleted Disney's pre created pages and started from scratch.  I choose the "stickers", text/ journalling, picture frames, pictures, backgrounds, and page layouts all on my own and I LOVED doing it.  It only took so long because I had to only work on it when I was not busy with the kido's :)  I also loved that you could choose between 3 kinds of Photo's 1.) Disney's Photo Gallery Pictures (like the old post card pictures)
2.) Disney's Photo Pass pictures you had taken of your family while at Disney World.
3.) Your own pictures you upload from the Internet.  About 75% of the pictures in the book are pictures I uploaded from my computer but I do have a few Disney Gallery pictures, and many Disney Photo Pass pictures of our family.

Well I am off to bed now hope you have a Stampendous Day!!!
