Nine Candles at Disneyland


Our family’s favorite place in the world to celebrate their birthday is Disneyland.  We can’t do it every year, but when it happens, it brings us ALL together, near and far.  This year we celebrated Raiden’s 9th birthday at Disneyland!  We all had a wonderful time getting together as a family, even waiting in line, and battling the crowds at times.  Seeing all of my children together, hugging and wishing Raiden a happy birthday warms my heart and makes me proud.  Raiden appreciated it and enjoyed his magical day.  The picture of him above really caught my eye when I went back to look at our Disneyland pictures.  At first, he looks as if he’s not having a very good time at all, but I assure you he definitely was having the BEST time.  Saturday evening, we took a break from walking through the park and wading through the crowds to sit and watch the Pixar Parade at California Adventure.  This little guy had been up and out everyday when the parks opened and wouldn’t go back to our Hotel until after closing time.  I think the look on his face is sheer exhaustion AND happiness rolled into one.  The watch he is wearing is a Mickey Mouse wristwatch he wanted on Main Street in Disneyland for his birthday.  He wears it everyday and will randomly let me know what time it is throughout the day.  I’m glad he does—it reminds me of his magical birthday at Disneyland!  EVERYONE should have a birthday at Disneyland at least once in their lifetime.

I like using the digital versions of Project Life because it gives me more bang for my buck.  I’m able to fill shapes in Silhouette Studio with the filler and journaling cards from the digital kits which will shape them into other elements I may need to supplement a more traditional look on my layouts.  Sometimes I just want to step outside the basic shapes of project life and the digital version allows me to do that. 

Here’s a peek at the Celebrate Theme Pack I used on the above layout.
