NYC! Pages 4 & 5

 We made it to NYC! As soon as we got there, we set up camp. Then we started exploring.  These 2 pages show a little of the action. :)

SWEET: NYC Pages 2 & 3

Here is page 2 of my NYC & DC trip. We stopped in Hershey, PA and and went to Chocolate World. It was a pretty cool place to spend a few hours.  We loved the little tour! Cute!
I included a postcard from Hershey, PA and our parking ticket.  Great way to include things from the trip! :)
Page 2: Chocolate World
 I love the picture of Noah & Chloe in front of Chocolate World.  The picture had to be cut to 3" x 4" to fit in the pocket.  I didn't want to cut it at first but I think I really like it like that! <3 br="" it="">
Page 3: Chocolate World
 I think the Hershey's bar is as big as she is!  LOL!
Page 3: Close-up of the "Sweet"
The "Sweet" was cut from Tim Holtz Block Talk and pressed into an ink pad!  I am getting lots of use out of that die!  (I was so super excited to find that die at a Joann store for $10!!)

NYC and DC Title Page

 I have been SUPER busy in my scrap room.  I printed the pictures I wanted for my NYC & DC trip and ended up with 202 pictures! How am I supposed to get all that to fit in a scrapbook album?  I decided to use pocket pages. While at Michaels, I came across a Project Life kit on clearance. Hmmm.... Maybe this is what I need for the album.  So, I bought the Maggie Holmes Core Kit and got started.  This is the first page in my album:

Together in New Mexico from 2010

This page is from our trip to visit friends in New Mexico in 2010.  This is the first time I have ever added the burlap ribbon to any pages.  I kinda like it! :)
