Jaidyn's Disney Memories/Autograph Book

We are taking our very 1st vacation as a family this October to the "happiest place on Earth"...Disneyland!!!  Many years of personal hardship have not allowed us to take any vacations.  I had already planned on making a memory/autograph book this summer but when I saw that Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge was "All About Disney" I just had to get a jump start on it.  I've been working on this for a couple of days now and am so pleased about how things are coming along so far.

I used a (2 bag) Cap'n Crunch Berries box to make the front and back parts of the book.  I cut 4 pieces of the box at 6 1/2 X 10 1/2 inches.  I attached 2 pieces together to make them more sturdy.  Then I just covered them.  Then I added a ribbon to the front.  I used Disney Mickey Font and Disney Mickey and Friends for the front cover.  I used Martha Stewart glitter on the letters and Glossy Accents on the heart and Minnie.  I then began constructing the inside pages.  Each page measures 6 X 10 1/4 and  has a 4 1/2 X 6 1/2 piece of cardstock to place a picture and an autograph in it.  As I get more Disney Cricut cartridges, I will be using my Cricut to cut coordinating Disney characters for each page.  I used ribbon to close the book.  I purposely did not finish this project for the simple fact that I know I will have to make more pages for other characters after we have gone on the vacation.

Here are the inside pages so far:

I will be creating more as I said earlier, this is just the beginning!

Besides the Getting Cricky challenge, I am also entering this project in the following challenges:
