At The Barbershop

On the bus ride back to our Disney hotel from the Magic Kingdom, my mother in law oohs and aahs over this precious little boy. Turns out, he had just had his first haircut that day at the Walt Disney World's Harmony Barbershop just off Main Street. Long story short, my mother-in-law gets it in her head that my baby girl needs to get her first haircut at Disney's Barbershop...a barbershop. My Princess + Barbershop = Really?! Absolutely!! The very next day, we rearranged our plans and we were at the Magic Kingdom's Harmony Barbershop without a reservation. After a few minute wait, Michael covered my little princess with stickers and handed my husband the bubble machine, I took the pictures and just a few minutes later, our little princess had an adorable haircut. Michael handed us a curl (for the scrapbook, of course!), a certificate, then crowned our princess with a "First Haircut" Mickey eared hat. For more Disney magic, he removed her hat and plastered her head with glitterized confetti and hairspray. WOW! Did she sparkle!! I can't tell you how thrilled I was when Natalie decided to release a Barbershop kit. Finally, the perfect kit for those wonderful first haircuts but the colors, papers and elements in this kit also look fantastic with Main Street and Liberty Square layouts.

Here is the layout I did of our older daughters first haircut. With the aid of Photoshop Elements, I transformed one of my pictures to a "colored pencil" affect.


Of course what you did for one child, you (hope and try) to do for the other. I couldn't resist adding in Disney's newest Princess that also has only had one haircut.


You have to check out the other layouts the ladies on Natalie's Creative Team put together! They also have really fantastic freebies:

MJ-AJ Designs (here, at Linda's blog, is where you can also grab template #10 which is the one I used for the layout with Rapunzel on it. Thank you Linda!)


For even more goodies, hop on over to Natalie's Place Designs for her latest kit - At The Barbershop.

Here is one I whipped up. Obviously, Rapunzel is not my design but I included her as part of the download ONLY to make things easy for you. I thought I would include the flower cluster and let you decide if and where you want to place the flowers. Bevel and shadows are only for the preview.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
