Happy Victoria Day!

Happy Victoria Day or Memorial Day for my American readers! I thought I would share with you the layout we did at last weeks scrapbook club. Keeping with my plan to scrapbook only photos from our recent trip, I chose the photos from our stay at the Caribe Hilton hotel. I'm finding it a lot easier to journal doing it this way. Because all the details are so fresh, I seem to have a lot more to say.
Because I had a few too many photos for this layout but didn't want to create another page, I used one of our glassine envelopes (from the Occasions mini) to create a pocket and just tucked them in there.
I also had one photo that really didn't turn out very well. But because I had already printed it, I didn't want to throw it away so decided to use it in my title. I used the Serif Essentials Big Shot alphabet (113464) and cut out the S and J from the photo. Looks pretty cool eh?!
There are so many fun new products on these pages. I didn't take close-ups of everything but the red circles on the journalling block on the left page have the words Caribe Hilton stamped on them with the Rough Type alphabet from the Mini. I used the 1/2" punch to punch them out. This is one of the sets that is on special this month - check it out here. Another accent on the right page are the three Bitty Buttons (118761). I used the coordinating punch from the Punch Pack (118309) and punched a piece of real red cardstock to tuck behind to make them stand out a bit.
I hope this gives you some ideas to incorporate on your pages! Thanks for stopping by!
