Disney Cruise Scrapbook: Part 3

Better late than never....I had much better luck early this morning!

Sadly, at least for me, this is the last of my Disney Cruise album.  I have loved sharing it!  I will be working on another album that goes with this trip, but no promises on when you might see it.  I am going to use all of the laser cuts that I got at the Scrapbook Expo, so I am really excited to see how those pages turn out!  If you missed the first two parts you can catch up here: Part 1 and Part 2.

On to the project at hand....

(L) Mom and Dad all dressed up....formal night and a special dinner at Palo.  Delicious adults only have to make reservations and there is a small surcharge to dine there, but TOTALLY worth it! (R)  When we went to pick Zach up after dinner in the Oceaneer's Club, he was hard at work on the computer...foreshadowing of things to come! :)

Our last Port of Call was Disney's own Castaway Cay.  They own a private island in the Bahamas. There was a little damage from a recent hurricane, but all in all it was fabulous day.  There was some light rain that threatened to put a damper on things (you can see by a couple of Zach's pouty faces), but things eventually cleared up and all was well!

Our last night the show was "Until We Meet Again" and then there was the Farewell Party were all the characters were out and strutting their stuff.  It was quite the experience!

I captured as many pictures as I could of all the Disney details all over the ship.  I also added a 6x12 insert and included even more photos...this was a really fun layout!

I can take no credit for this gem.  I totally scrap lifted it from Pinterest - I wish I could give proper credit, but I didn't pin it.  Since I didn't have this Cricut cartridge, I figured that I wouldn't ever be able to make it.  I happened to be at a crop where there was a plethora of cartridges and luckily I stumbled upon this one.  I just love how it turned out!  I put our final on board bill, dining tickets and keys to the world  in the "pocket".

These are front and backs of three 6x12 inserts that I used to add some extra photos.  The first goes with the Pirates in the Caribbean night.  The second is more "Diney in the Details" and the third is from our day at Castaway Cay (that picture of Zach with Mickey, still just melts my heart).

These final two are fronts and backs of some additional inserts I used from the small variety pack. Large one is from Castaway Cay when we met Mickey - the back is one of the laser cuts that I got at the Scrapbook Expo and I still plan to add something to this card even if it is only lettering.  Top right is from the Character Breakfast morning.  The bottom is from our morning in St. Thomas.

That about wraps it up on this one for now.  There will eventually be a bit more, but I am so relieved to have this part documented for us to enjoy.  As always, if you see a layout that you love, feel free to add to a Pinterest board...just click and pin!

I am already signed up for a crop on National Scrapbook Day and am going to participate in this workshop through Big Picture Classes.  Fellow scrapbookers - it is totally free to register and they are going to have some big names sharing techniques and ideas.  The goal of the workshop, besides having fun, is to post 10,000 layouts to Instagram over that weekend.  There will of course be a special hashtag.  If you join in the fun, please let me know!  Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I'm sad to see it end!! I love the page you scrap lifted from PInterest. haha! All of it just looks amazing! What a keepsake!

  2. Awh, I'm sad that it's over too. This has been quite a journey :) Love the pocket page and that is awesome you were able to find the cartridge at that crop!!

  3. This is a treasure that Zach will love as he gets older! I wish i had something with both of my parents but i dont.

  4. I'm sad that this is over :( I was loving seeing this book!

    That pocket page is AWESOME! I am so so glad that you found the cartridge so you could make it!

  5. I love your album! It is full of good memories and I love that fun pocket!
    I am totally thinking about signing up for that free BPC workshop. Not sure if I will actually be able to participate much since it's a Saturday and we are just so busy usually. But I want access just in case! I may just set it aside as a day to scrap.

  6. I like the mix of layouts and divided pages :)
    Looks like a wonderful vacation and Zack with treasure this album.
    I am going to have to check out this class…free sounds good to me, teehee.
    At first I thought 100,000 layouts in a weekend impossible…then realized it is for everyone to add, not 100,000 layouts each…duh, lol


I love meeting new bloggers and love reading your comments....each and every one!
