Going to see Mickey

It's Spring Break here and we are off to Disneyland for a quick trip to see Mickey.  I love, love, love Disneyland and California and try to go whenever I can.  I am so excited to be leaving behind the rain for a few days, hitting the sunshine, riding Pirates of the Carribean and seeing Mickey!
We have a few friends going the same week as we are (minus hubby he has to work) and my youngest wanted me to make him an autograph book.  I decided since I was all ready making one, making a few more would be easy.
To make them I cut up some old patterned paper and white cardstock to 4"x 4" (I tried to get colors that went with the Characters, red for Mickey, blue for Donald, orange for Tigger, pink for the princess etc.). 
Then I covered the chipboard for the covers in Core'dinations cardstock and cut the Mickey heads out of black cardstock with my silhouette. I also found a Disney font online and cut out the first initial of all the kids going and added it to the centre of the Mickey head.
I added some Washi tape to just one side of the cover for some texture and fun.  I bound them together with my Bind-It-All.
For the perfect finishing touch I added some twine and an Epiphany Crafts charm with their names to the Owires.  Square for Linden and hearts for the girls.

I hope you have a great week I know we will.

Thanks for stopping by.
