Wisconsin Dells Family "Mini-Trip" 2009

It is often joked about in my family that I scrapbook like I am sending "thank-you" notes from a wedding...I technically have 1 year to complete the task. Well there is another trip to the Dells planned for this year so I am in a mad rush to get last years pictures in a book...however, we did go to the Dells in 2008 for our first "mini-vakay" and I thought those photos were lost...turns out they were put in a sleeve album temporarily until I found the time to actually scrapbook them. So I don't count the year for those...and then there is the BIG Disney book from our trip in 2007...we are going again later this year and I am trying like the dicken to get all of those photos in...I was actually disappointed with my pics from that trip...I videotaped more than taking photos...this year I swear to be different...we will be there when the Christmas decorations will be out and I expect to bring home at leat 6 SD cards filled with photos.

So her are a few layouts I have created for our last trip last year...

I used Basic Grey's Eskimo Kisses Line from this past holiday to focus on the deer aspect of this day-trip. I didn't even journal this one...I thought the pictures tell the story of the day. The one thing I have as my "fall back" technique is tearing and distressing...I absolutely love the look it gives and what you can realy do with it. I have also started using staples on my pages (there are 2 here in the corner). I also try to get as many photos on a page as I can...and many times I do not mat photos on paper...although there are time I may.

This was a really fun day. The deer were so very friendly (of course because we dangled food in front of them...:)) But the girls had a great time walking around and naming all of the deer. I recommend the Deer Park if you are going to Wisconsin was a great way to spend the morning after breakfast.

Great layout...I love the idea of giving myself one year to scrapbook the photos...perhaps I wouldn't be sooooo far behind!
