Disneyland Mini Album

I have been working like a crazy women trying to get this finished for my son before we head down to visit him next week. He is such a sweet boy....(man now) and so sentimental. Loves my scrap booking and sends me items to scrap for him! This Disneyland trip was so had been years since I had been and we had a blast!

I used CTMH's buttons, sparkles, My Creations 3 Ring Binder, Cranberry, Black and Sunflower card stock, Ticket to Ride and Thrill Ride stamp sets.

Also, this is my take from a super talented CTMH consultant Tresa Black. She did tutorials showing in detail how to create a My Creations 3 Ring Binder. Check out her blog, it is amazing!
