And now on to a page I posted on 2 Peas yesterday...

I love family vacations. Showing Nico different parts of the world, relaxing, exploring and just spending time together in different places - these are some of my favorite memories.  I keep a travel journal and fill it with stories about our adventures. And some day I'll get every single one of those stories down in our scrapbooks. For now, I like to do highlight pages that cover an entire trip in a 2-page spread.

October Afternoon's Boarding Pass was perfect for the generic travel theme I was looking for. Even though these stories are from our recent cruise, I wanted to keep the focus on the photos and travel diary theme instead of the "nautical" theme - that page will probably come later.
I thought this camera and polaroid would make a great focal point and a place to ground my title.
Lots of journaling with some of Nico's firsts (dolphin swim, playing in a real fort, learning how to shoot a 
cannon, learning to snorkel, exploring Old San Juan) - lots of random things that he experienced. I want to remember those things and with this layout I can!
