Scrap Your Vacation Photos!

These girls are so creative! I would have never thought to use a Christmas line to do vacation photos, but check out this layout by Tracee, GENIUS!!

Holiday themed papers don't always mean you have to use them just for that specific holiday.

When looking at the Elf magic collection I could see right away that they could be used for those vacation photo's with the postage stamp details. I layered some embellishments and punched circles over the top of the Xmas related text, they then fit perfectly with my holiday theme.

Add some sparkle to your title by adding a few jewels.
I used the large bracket sticker to draw attention to my title & popped it up using foam dots to add extra dimension to it.

San Francisco 2004 - Megan Gourlay

It seemed appropriate to finally scrap these photos of the trip my sister and I made to San Francisco in 2004 with the America's Cup being on in the city at the moment smile.gif

I had been married a year at the time had to do some fast talking out of a sticky situation when I realised I was going to miss our first wedding anniversary! The tickets were non-refundable, but thankfully I had a very understanding husband! 

 Because I wanted to include as many photos as I could I kept the pages as flat as I could and kept embellishments minimal. I created a flap on one page so that I could add more photos and tucked an envelope into the back cover to store additional photos.

Designer tip: change images to suit your needs - the pennants on the bird cage have been altered by layering the 'amazing' pennant over the top of the original design hich said love.
