The final layout I completed with photos and memories from our 2015 Spring Break vacation is actually the page that will appear first in the series of layouts from that time. Last March, Robbie's brother and his family joined us in Texas for a week, and we enjoyed lots of FUN and adventures . . . some of which I've shared previously (like the Huey UH-1 helicopter ride, the lemon story, visiting Spindletop Gladys City Boomtown, the Terminus BBQ, and Galveston Beach). Here's a look at some of the other places we visited.
San Jacinto Monument - I was having trouble with this layout until I moved the middle photo up and placed the journaling underneath. This format helps emphasize the height of the monument.
I included a little handwritten journaling along with the printed information from a brochure about the monument.
Kemah Boardwalk - There were tons of colorful photos from our time at this waterfront amusement park, so I narrowed them down by choosing ones that best reflected the stories I included.
Frontiers of Flight Museum - We've been to this museum several times, but we were surprised this time to find out there was an outdoor exhibit (as well as the helicopter rides!).
Johnson Space Center - I used a divided pocket page to showcase photos and memorabilia from the space center. There were several new exhibits since Robbie and I first visited back in 2011. The Boeing 747 shuttle aircraft carrier and the shuttle replica Independence were being installed in a new plaza outside the Visitor Center. The plaza wasn't open at that time, but now visitors can tour the plane and the shuttle. (We just might need to make another trip to Houston soon!)
There was one exhibit that Robbie was particularly excited to see - the Galileo shuttlecraft! This is the largest prop from the original Star Trek television series - so FUN to see this piece of iconic sci-fi history. (Of course, Robbie had a trading card that I could use on my layout!)
I also created a pocket page to hold maps from the space center and showcase our group photo.
And, finally, the last page I created. I had saved this Scrapbook Customs Texas themed paper specifically for the title page. I added two random photos of the six of us, a few stickers and a short paragraph of journaling.
