Part of a Perfect Day

My husband has asked me several times already, "Where are we going this year?"  "When are we going....?"  It's funny that I was always the one who traveled and had to talk him into taking time off for a vacation! The first long trip we made together was to California in the early 90's.  I thought he would faint when I told him what the plane tickets cost.  I think they were about $350 each.  He had only ever been on one or two vacations in his entire life.  He soon found out that travel was one of my passions and he has apparently gotten the bug, too.

I'm still the travel planner so I guess I'd better get busy planning some things.  We are very fortunate to be able to take some trips.  So with travel in our minds, I got back to our California pages.  I'd done the lead in for this wonderful day a few weeks ago.  These photos and journaling provide the details.  When I read my journaling, it seemed like all we did that day was eat and drink!  I hadn't even mentioned the ice cream.  We enjoyed the scenery, company, weather and browsing stores, too.  It was just lovely.  It inspires me to plan our next adventure.

For these pages, I used Basic Grey's Marrakech collection.  The photo frame is cut on the Cricut from a frame I found in Photoshop Elements and imported into SCAL software.  I stamped it with a woodgrain stamp and painted on Glossy Accents.    Some rub-ons and stickers helped finish up the two page spread.

The date is written inside a stamped frame.

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure and visit tomorrow; there is a special opportunity...

  1. I love so much about your layout - the variety of photos, the journaling, the BG paper, all so lovely! I'm also the travel planner in the family. My husband will want to go somewhere, and ask me where we're going!

  2. this is a great layout lisa-I have that basic grey dp as well-couldn't figure out how to use it on a card so it sits in the stash-laughed when I read you comments about hubby and the first vacation trip
