Are you ready to build a SNOWMAN? Let it go!!

We went to Disney World in November.  Tanner turned 9 the day we left.  Last year when we went to WDW, he only wanted to see Phineas and Ferb and the characters from our meals.  I was surprised that he wanted to see Elsa and Anna.  Of course, we did not book a fast pass months in advance to see them because he was more into riding rides than waiting for character autographs.

So, we got to the Magic Kingdom right after breakfast with Lilo and Stitch and he wanted to see the wait time.  Mind you this was our first full day at MK and he had a list of rides he was hoping to ride.  Well, the wait was 90 minutes 20 minutes after rope drop!  He insisted on waiting.  Mike and his parents went on a few rides while the boys and I waited.  His brothers are 19 and 24!!!

When we were two families from the front of the line, Tanner asked me what was my favorite part of our vacation so far (on day 3 of our trip) and I said taking Mimi and Papa to eat at Teppan Edo for their first time last night.  He smiled at me and said seeing for Elsa and Anna was his favorite part of the trip - TOTALLY made it worth the 90 minute wait!!!

I spent two days looking for the perfect papers for my post!!!  I did not have the right blue in my 3,000 pieces of paper!!!  This was my third grouping of paper!!  I loved the glittered snowflakes on the paper!!

Because I had such good photos of Elsa and Anna, I did not want to cut them out of paper.  I did add Olaf though!!

Here is my little Olaf!  He was a black and white image that I traced.  I got creative with the details, cutting him out in brown and trimming off the white arms and hair.  I also cut an extra eyes and nose in orange and trimmed his nose.

I used fonts on my computer to cut out my title on my Cameo.  The photo of Elsa and Anna came with my Memory Makers download.

Look at the smile on Tanner's face!!

I added a little Let it Go!  I had to let the 90 minute wait go!!!
It was great to see Elsa and Anna - I am glad we waited!!  Here are a few more pictures:
Look at that grin!

Tyler and Elsa.
Kramer and Elsa.

Anna blushed and told me Tyler was GORGEOUS!!

Up next is the lovely and talented SARAH

Here is our complete line up in case you get lost along the way:

The cold never bothered us anyway!

What a terrific layout! I know what you mean about trying to find just the right shade in your sea of papers. Your final choices are perfect. The layout is perfect and not too "girly" either. I love your little Olaf. I am your newest follower and look forward to seeing more of your creative work.

Thank you so much for sharing your story! I love your lay out!

Ellen Jarvis said...

How much FUN it must have been to have your "boys" wait in line with you to meet Anna and Elsa. (P.S. -- Anna is right; Tyler is GORGEOUS, and Anna looks positively smitten!) Those memories are worth a lifetime! And I'll tell you what -- I bet Anna and Elsa were very pleased to meet a young man (Tanner) rather than yet another costumed princess. Your layout -- gorgeous!!!!

Thank you for sharing your story, Lori. It made my day.
