Vaca Scrapping

I cannot believe I got this page done. I just kept the materials on my work table, refusing to put them away until they were in a book. Woo hoo! I guess that worked. It was annoying, but it worked.
Much of the materials for this were either purchased prior to or during our trip. The background is either Bazzill or Stampin' Up!, something I had in stock. The patterned papers were from Making Memories. I have been waiting to use some of these shapes, and when I saw the interstate sign, I knew it would be perfect. I bought the self-adhesive chipboard accents at Michaels while we were in Reading. I was drawn to the one that said, "Swimming at the hotel pool," as that is always a favorite of my sons. I also liked the bracketed "family vacation" title. I have to laugh because, as I was showing this to my husband, I realized that i placed the frame on the picture in the bottom left upside down. How very fitting that is when driving 1700 miles with a 3 and an 11 year old! I kept it that way... I'll just tell people it was planned. Oops, I guess that won't work now, eh?
In all, I love how it came out. There was an adequate amount of photos to sum up the week. I wish I would have had more pictures at my niece's house... I even had my Nikon with me. I must have been too enamored with her cute house to realize I should take pics.

I really like all the "road trip" pieces you incorporated along with the journaling. Such cute kids! :D
