Disneyland was Magical!

Just wanted to jump in real quick and let you all know that Disneyland really is the Happiest Place on Earth! There is just something about it that makes you want to just have fun...or better yet - refuse to be anything but happy.

My kids were superbly behaved...and as a result, hubby and I enjoyed every single moment of the trip. So much so that when we left - we were already planning the next trip back.

I have done two disney digital scrapbook images so far. And I do look forward to doing more...but time is a bit of a gonner for me as I bring in my birthday, the flu and my son's upcoming birthday.

Now it's time to start thinking HALLOWEEN again.

(My son's birthday party is always Halloween Themed).

There weren't a lot of Scrapbook Products at Disney. (Other than stickers and a few charms). I was quite disappointed. But that aside....I have to start collecting as much Jack Skellington decorations as possible as well - since my son has fallen in love with him since leaving the Tower of Terror (crazy ride by the way).

If you happen to know of any specialty stores where they would sell Jack Skellington party supplies, please let me know.

Ciao for now.

Disney Halloween!

Oh my goodness! I am so excited.

I just booked (yesterday) the tickets, hotel and all the extra's for Disneyland! We leave Friday! But guess what...they are celebrating Halloween there now! Imagine that, being a part of the fantastical land of Disney during Halloween! How spooktacular is that!!!

I have not even been to Disneyland yet! And now I get to go for Halloween.

But here's why this is soooo much more enthralling for me: First, I am a scrapbooker - which makes Disneyland all the more exciting and adventurous, I love photography (I even purchased an amazing new digital camera before my Australia trip 2 weeks ago) and I love Halloween! (I even have a Halloween Games for Kids website - if you didn't already know that).

The funny thing is, because I travel so much for my profession - I didn't really feel the excitement of this trip until just now! We were talking about it and researching our options for a few weeks. But all the while I was sort of taking this backseat journey through the motions as if this were "just another trip"...

But NO! This is NOT just another trip! It's Scrapbooker, Photographer and Halloween Enthusiast heaven! I am totally freaking out all of a sudden.

If you have anything to share with me about your experiences in a scrapbooker, a photographer or Halloween Enthusiast, please let me know. I want to be CERTAIN that I get to see everything I should while there. (We have the park hopper passes too - so we will be bouncing between Disneyland and California Adventure parks the whole time).

If you have ANYTHING to share...any tips on MUST SEE, MUST VISIT stuff while there...please let me know! I have less than 2 days before I get there now!
