When I got home from our weekend away, I couldn't wait to start scrapping our holiday pics . . . Especially those taken from the boat when we went to see the whales . . . A very memorable and exhilarating first for me. . .
After a day and a half of "holiday", we walked away with just shy of 600 pics, if I include those taken from my cell . . . Yikes, even I was surprised! . . . Below are the first few pics I scrapped. . .
First a thank you card for my wonderful hubby . . .
Then my favourite pic of one the whales. . .
The paper and tag are from Michelle's Cast Me Away kit (a freebie on her blog)
And my favourite layout so far:
I used the sketch Linda provided for her challenge at the Crafty Scraps Forum,
. . . And Michelle's Cocoa Mint addon kit. . . with the tag (where I wrote Graceful Giants on) from the Cocoa Mint kit. . .
