Hi guys! It's Disney Wednesday and today I am continuing to document our dinner with the Princesses at Epcot. Have a look at my process video here:
I decided to rearrange a few things in the album, and so that meant changing up the last two layouts just a bit. For this layout I changed the right hand side to show some photos I took while we were shopping, which we did a lot of at Epcot.
Here is the layout complete:
For the next layout, I decided to move the photos of the girls with Belle to this layout, and I also showed our professional portraits that are now safely housed in a Becky Higgins 12x12 pocket.
That pocket will actually probably live in the back of the album, so this is what the entire layout looks like, all together:
It has given me so much joy to document these Princess layouts! But first, let me show you details of the shopping layout. I was captivated by this nutcracker turning in the window. I really love him and all the lights and magic surrounding him.
I wrote a little about the shopping we did at Epcot. I really loved the shops and stores in all the different countries and even though I did not get many photo graphs in that part of the park, this little nutcracker will tell that part of the story.
These stars are simply perfect right here, as are the fun balloons. What ties these all together are the similar colors. It is like scrapbook serendipity, where everything just comes together unexpectedly.
But when you have such a handsome and delightful nutcracker, how could it not come together like magic?
I did manage to save one of the bags I got and so I folded it neatly and placed it inside this pocket here. No embellishment needed.
And speaking of magic, when we walked into the Akershus restaurant, Belle was waiting to take our portraits and introduce herself to us. It really was magical. Just look how beautiful she is.
My connection to the Disney princesses actually begins with Belle. We did not grow up watching Disney movies and when I visited Disney 20 years ago we never saw any princesses (can you imagine?! I remember seeing Feivel and Donatello!). Beauty and the Beast was first released I guess right about my sophomore year of college, and I immediately fell in love with the whole movie. Completely, hopelessly in love.
I loved bringing in the yellow from Belle's gown into the layout using the yellow damask from Sahlin Studios. The color palette of navy, yellow, pink, and light blue suits me wonderfully.
The professional photo is in the lower right hand corner. It sort of cracks me up, how Belle holds her hands.
The other two photos are my own, and I love capturing the small interactions between my girls and the princess. Just little ways these princesses found to connect with their tiny princess fans. Magic.
I hope you find some magic today in some of your own photos. Then create something pretty with those magical photos, ok? See you tomorrow for TBT!
