Downtown Disney Documented Mini
GlueArts Designer: Grace Tolman

About two years ago, we were going through a very challenging time trying to sell our home. I never liked open houses because I consider it a hassle for me trying to figure out where I can take my kids for a few hours that won’t be too expensive because we had to be out of the house. This trip to Downtown Disney was a good break for us because we didn’t have to spend a ton ( and we enjoyed the time that we were out of the house) and it took the stress out of our situation. It was worth documenting! I also love how the Glue Arts Adhesives and the Simple Stories Year-o-graphy paper pack made this mini an easy and no-hassle process to make.
