I've never scrapbooked before, but feel like I need to for this trip. Something special to pull out and remember the magic. The problem is...I'm soon not creative. Help!! I need ideas or a point in the right direction.

I would go to a craft store and see if they have a pre made Disney scrapbook so all you would have to do is put the pictures on! You could probably find the kits online too.

According the the GKTW alumni site, there is an organization called Crops of Luv that offers a free scrapbook for wish kids.

Scarp booking isn't as hard as it sounds. I have a scrapbook for the the first 3 years of Alex's life, but im not so good at remembering to snap pics all the time so now ill have to do a book for her 4/5 years bc I only snapped pics of her first day of school, bday and Xmas last yr.
Anywho, all you need to do it look around your hobby lobby or michaels and find Disney pages you like, they typically sell them by the page, or you can buy a page pack that will probably be cheaper but you might not be able to find Disney themed that way, it will have to be plain or prints you like. Then just go up and down the sticker aisles and find ones you love!!! Typically these craft stores have a clearance wall so check there too, they usually have super cute 3d type stickers for pretty cheap!!! And don't forget your coupons to save some money!!! Hobby lobby has 40% off one item coupons online or in the Sunday paper on the back of the comic pages, but you can only use one per visit, and the scrapbook ing stuff there is typically on sale, just make sure you pay attention to which brands are on sale!!! And michaels has coupons on their website as well and an email club u can sign up for that will automatically send you weekly coupons for usually like 20% off your entire purchase!! Sometimes on their clearance wall you can find stickers for a penny!!!!! Then just come home, lay out your spread and try to stick to about 4-6 pictures a page. Use stickers to hold up some pics or make it seem that way, but glue it down as well, buy a tape runner and plenty of refills!! And don't forget to include your park passes, fast pass stubs, and any little souvenirs you may want to include!!

And yeah crops of luv will do it for free if you want them too!!! Just look up their site and email the main lady, you'll send her your pictures and any souvenirs you want included and they'll churn out an awesome looking scrapbook for you to cherish!!! They were featured in last months issue of Woman's day!!! Ill probably send my stuff to them once we go, I've seen some of their work online and it was amazing!!! Far better than I could accomplish!

Hope this helps!!! I know it's a lot of me rambling!!! Lol

I can't believe after a year of planning Trevs wish trip it is almost here!!! We lea e next weekend!!! We are getting SO excited! I can't wait for sunny and warm weather as it has been cold and rainy here.

Now to start making a list so we can start packing soon. The kids are excited about their first plane ride...I'm hoping they will sleep part of the 6 hour trip!

Our chapter does do a full scrap book for the wish kiddos. Might want to check and see if yours does too. I also did a hard cover picture book from Piccaboo for a way to save the memories. It turned out great and will be a wonderful keep sake for Carter!

Yep, we are excited!!! We, too, leave very soon. Our adventure begins on Thursday!!! We arrive at GKTW on Friday. I hope everything goes well. We are pretty much packed except for daily essentials and my dh's clothes (of course) ! The boys are missing the last day of school, so they really feel like they are getting away with something. I am ready to go!

I was looking through our packet and noticed it said we could get a free stroller rental at the parks... For those that needed a double stroller were you able to get one? My twins are 4 so I am sure they will be using one during the day as well as Trev at some point. Can't believe we leave in a few days!!

Looks like the money situation won't make it to where the whole family can go. We're now tryin to save up enough where they can at least go one day. We figured it'll be about $1000 to drive there Friday night. All go to Magic Kingdom on Saturday then my husband and the other four will drive back Sunday. My mom, myself, and my three will stay for the week. It's not what we wanted but it's better than nothing. Hopefully we can come up with the money to make at least this happen. :-(
