Dave Smith and Walt Disney Archives

On Saturday, Feb. 5th, I went to the Disney Studios in Burbank for a tour with my friend Kim. Part of the tour was a chance to peek into the Frank G. Wells Disney Archive Building. And guess who happened to be there, but Mr. Disney Archive himself, Dave Smith. What a fun day! We got to see some great stuff, but more on that later!

First, the sketch for this layout was from Sketch Savvy by my friend Susan Stringfellow. Please go to her blog to download a copy of this sketch and to see other examples.

The papers and trim used were Industrial Park from Scrap Within Reach. I cut the title with various fonts using my Cricut and SCAL software.

The pictures above are of me and Kim with a Disney Oscar, and Dave Smith, the original Disney archiver.

The journaling tag is just the chipboard that the ribbon came on. I added paper and tied ribbon through the top and voila!

Dave Smith kindly pulled a few things from the archives for us to see. Among them were an actual ticket from opening day of Disneyland, and the guide book from opening day.

Here is a portion of the Opening Day festivities at Disneyland!
