Mickey's Trick or Treat at Disneyland

I had so much fun designing this mini book!  From the minute I saw it, I fell in love with this Authentique Glowing Halloween paper and I knew I just had to make a mini book to hold the pictures from our 2011 trip to Disneyland for Mickey's Trick or Treat Party.
 On the cover I used several Tim Holtz dies and the flower is one I made by melting organza and the black leaves are melted polyester fabric.  The vines are black pipe cleaners.

 For the inside, I traced a Cosmo Cricket chipboard album that I had and made a burlap page.
 I also found a mini pumpkin die cut shape and added that in the middle.  The pictures of Chip, Dale and Donald are from the Piratepalooza - a pirate themed "disco" area where you could dance to 70's disco songs with the characters.  It was a hoot!  One of my favorite parts of the entire evening!

 This is the back of the pumpkin and a picture in front of the Haunted Mansion.  One of the elements that came with the paper was this Top 10, so I listed our 10 favorite things about a Disney Halloween.
  1. Haunted Mansion
  2. Mickey O' Lantern
  3. Jack Skellington
  4. Pumpkins!
  5. Hitchhiking Ghosts
  6. Our Anniversary
  7. Pirates
  8. Hallowishes
  9. Piratepalooza
  10. Ichabod
 I had to dig deep to get up enough courage for a picture with Jack Sparrow.  He's always a little freaky!  And we found some Stormtroopers in Tomorrowland.
 Our hosts, Mickey and Minnie were found back along Big Thunder Trail, and look who wanted to hitch a ride home with us!
 Jack Skellington was hanging out in New Orleans Square and the Castle looked dark and creepy! This page I made from black canvas instead of burlap to change things up a little.
Pirate carcasses were in great supply all night long, and we took our annual anniversary picture in front of the Mickey O'Lantern this year instead of on Splash Mountain.  We are holding up 14!
I left the back really simple.  Just a die cut of Tim Holtz's Candelabra.

This was such an incredibly fun project!  I had the glitter paint, stickles, buttons, organza, pipe cleaners, die cuts, and any and everything I could think of out on my desk as I was making this.  This Glowing line is a classic, amazing Halloween line!  I LOVE it!  Please don't retire it Authentique!  It can be used year after year.

oh my goodness! I just love this and the burlap page is super cool. I think my fave is the 14 photo but the hitchhiking ghost shot is a close second. I totally understand about jack. Those dudes do not even come close unless you get a photo from the distance. They freak me out too.This one isn't bad from the side. That one photo you have by your sister totally looks like him. Its all about how you take the photo. I wonder how many people look at him like "back off freaky jack! I am just trying to get a photo because you are jack but you are freaking the crap out of me~!"
