Thank Goodness for Snow Days...

well it isn't even lunch time yet and I've done some laundry, pulled out something for dinner and finished the mini album I started yesterday. So we had 2 back to back storms with just a few hours break between them early this morning. At about 7am I went outside...shoveled off the back deck & measured the snow...it was 7" at that time. It since snowed all morning depositing a few more inches. Here's a look at the backyard before the 2nd storm...



This snowy fellow is our dog Riley...he's being coated by the 2nd round of snow.



I know enough of the personal stuff, you want to see that mini-album...right???

This is a perfect project for a day like today. The hardest part for me was sorting thru all our Disney pictures. To start your album you need a bunch of these little cards. I have been saving them (minus a few that have gone missing) just waiting for an idea. These are the room keys you are given when staying at a Disney resort.



Punch a few holes, add some pictures, embellies , ring and ribbon ....

Voila! Your own little mini!!!!




I painted and glittered a Maya Road chipboard word and added a Bazzill chip tag with Doodlebug stickers for the front. Here's a view of the reverse side of the cards....



Here's a fun little chipboard embellie I made with some Basic Grey raw chipboard that I painted, glittered, added a Mickey eyelet thru the star, and some MM tiny alphas.



Another chipboard embellie: Basic Grey chipboard, painted, stamped with circular dot stamp and then added some Fancy Pants felt circles to make the Mickey icon.



Lost a room card??? How about using an old photopass card....



So that's my album. I'm planning on adding to it with each new trip.

What do you think????I'm pretty pleased with it :wink:

ETA: I want to say the cool thing about these cards are that they are imprinted with your name and dates of stay. I just picked a corresponding picture for each member of the family and adhered to the appropriate card.

Okay off to enjoy some more snow... anyway blogger was not very happy with me uploading all these pictures(this is my 3rd attempt at this post!)
