Final Cozumel Layouts

Over the past couple of years, I've been steadily working my way through the photos we took on our 10th anniversary cruise and creating scrapbook pages to fill an album (which has expanded to two albums!). Today I have the final layouts for our day in Cozumel to share with you. Since I kept a daily journal on the cruise, I'm not journaling on all the pages in the album. However, there are some stories that simply have to be told again . . . like the one on this first layout.
Journaling reads: When we walked into the first store in Cozumel, a salesman looked at Robbie and said, "Hey Superman, I have a super deal for you!" We laughed and continued strolling through the various shops along the waterfront road . . . and EVERY salesman greeted us with "Hey Superman." By the end of the day, Robbie vowed never to wear his Superman T-shirt in public again!

I also wanted to share a FUNny story from lunch that day.

Journaling reads: After a couple of hours of walking & shopping, we were ready for lunch. I was surprised that a coke cost $29 . . . until the waiter explained that the prices were in Pesos!

This next page showcases a couple of photos we snapped as we were pulling up to the dock.

And finally, I used the front and back of a divided page protector for photos of Cozumel taken from the ship and those taken as we shopped & strolled along the waterfront.

I love working with these photos because each time it brings back all the great memories from that trip, our first cruise and the celebration of ten years together!


  1. What a great collection of pages commemorating the "little" memories of your trip. Those are the things you'll look back on and remember with a smile!

  2. Ah that story made me smile - was thinking of Robbie whilst looking at the dealers list for World Con LonCon3 which is in a few weeks.

    I do like the combination of your daily journal, stories in the book and the divided page protectors. Such a FUN album.

  3. I agree. Scrapping vacation photos bring back all the wonderful memories. I love your pages, and love the way you added the pocket pages at the end.

  4. Awesome layouts! Love the mix of traditional plus the pocket pages. Loving the superman story! That is just too funny. :)

  5. Love all of these Melissa! Such fun photos and fun stories. Well done!

  6. You can just tell how much scrapbooking is your passion, your gorgeous layouts are so inspiring


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
