This and That in Disneyland

Being a lifelong fan of family trips to Disneyland, I try to journal and collect memories of each trip we take. This time—rather than use a simple notebook— I thought I’d look no further than Stampin’ Up!’s This and That Journal. We have a trip to Disneyland coming up in a few weeks, and I love the planning and preparing as much as the trip. (Well, not AS much, but close!)

Being a “stamping-challenged” guy, I tend to use whatever is handy, and two things never are: 1) directions (well, they’re handy but I somehow ignore them); and 2) a Stamp-a-ma-jig. For the journal, I simply laid out whatever came into my head. And that’s the great thing about it . . . plenty of pages for ideas—good and bad!

The journal will eventually have a page listing everything from the snacks we plan to take, the music and DVDs we plan to listen to and watch, weather forecasts, favorite rides, and events we won’t miss in the parks.

I’ve really liked using the This and That Journal because the pages aren’t too large and they don’t challenge my “limited creative skills” in laying out my ideas. I plan to go back later and use the designer stickers as a fun embellishment.

I have to admit—I’ve had a lot of fun putting this together! I’m looking forward to completing more pages and creating a book of fun and special memories.
