Summer Boat Ride

I really loved the challenge posted I saw yesterday over at the American Crafts Blog. What is it about? Ink pads and that means Stamping! I love incorporating stamps onto my layouts and whenever I see an opportunity to do so, I take it and this one is no exception. I actually used 4 stamps on this layout and also used our sketch this week at Scrapbook Challenges.

These photos are from our first family Boracay trip back in 2007. I remember we had to take a 2-hour bus ride to get to the docking station that will take us to the island. But now, there are already flights that take you directly to the boat station. It was a fun family trip (Gio's side) because the entire family was complete - grandma, parents and grandkids.

Close up of the title work and the embellies I used. The question "Are we there yet?" is a 7Gypsies stamp.

Close up of the gelly buttons and tag from a local store here. And the 2 stamps on the side of the photo's are Tim Holtz Stamps. The big flourish is stamped using 2 colors of distress inks.

One more stamp here...

That's how much I love stamps! Four in an LO and I think this is the most stamps I've used on one LO. We want to go back to the island again sometime soon but it's hard to get everybody's schedule in sync nowadays. That's why these memories are to be treasured...

Alpha: AC Thickers
Embellishments: Jelly buttons, Chipboard and Tags from LSS
