Scrapping More Holiday Photos

Although I am completely up to date with my Project Life pages, I am about twelve months behind in my "normal" scrapbooking.  So this week I tried to get a couple done.  I am still slowly making my way through our photos from Phuket - April 2012- but since I have PL spreads from that trip, I don't feel the urge to scrap every single photo- just the ones I think have a story to tell.

For this first one, I pulled out my Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic by American Crafts collection and went to work.  It's quite a girly collection but I think I was able to pull out some elements that worked for this layout for Master 6.  This layout tells the story of how despite there being a really awesome Kids' Club at our resort, Oliver hated going and just wanted to swim in the pool and hang out with Chris and I all day.  Initially we wanted him to persevere in the hope that he would grow to love it.  We also wanted some quality time together without the boys.  But eventually we decided that we didn't want him to be miserable- after all, it was his holiday just as much as it was ours.






For my next layout, I grabbed the Snippets Collection from Studio Calico and went to work on this layout of Samuel and I in the pool.  He had a ball every day at the Baby Club and the staff were absolutely wonderful with him.  Every afternoon we would collect him and bring him back up to the pool for some family time before getting changed for dinner.  I was so grateful that the Baby Club was there and was very happy to take him each morning, but I was always excited to go get him and find out about his day.







I don't think I'll ever get completely "caught up" but that's ok, because it is lovely re-live our holiday memories twelve months later.
