My girls LOVE their Disney characters, especially the princesses. So when I was planning our Disney World vacation I knew they would be into getting all the character’s autographs. A standard autograph book is a good option, but I was looking for something a bit more fun. Something that could become a treasured souvenir for my girls. I decided to go with a photo mat that could be framed after we got back home.
I started with a trip to Hobby Lobby to buy an 8×10 white photo mat that set me back $1.99 (I got two, one for each of my daughters), as well as a package of multi-colored Sharpies. While we were are the parks I kept the photo mats in my backpack in a large Ziploc bag to protect them. The girls had so much fun trying to see how many characters they could get to sign their photo mats.
When we got back home we took another trip to Hobby Lobby where I let the girls pick out a frame to display their autographs in. We were able to find this sparkly dazzler in the clearance section that my glitter-loving oldest girl fell in love with.
The girls had so much fun looking through our vacation photos to pick out the one they wanted to display in the frame. They turned out so cute, and my girls really love them! It’s a great way to create a keepsake the kids can treasure for many years!
