{crafty} Chic Tags Blogapalooza!

Welcome back for this month's blog hop! This month Social Media Butterflies is joining together with Chic Tags for a Blogapalooza with over 20 projects to inspire you!

You should have come here from Adrienne's page, if not head on over to the Chic Tags blog to start from the beginning!

This road trip collection was so fun to work with! I decided to use it paired with Studio Calico's "Hook" kit for a layout of a recent overnight trip we took. And yes, I completely left the date off that tag! I realized it of course as I was taking the pictures, I still need to go back and add that in.

I couldn't sop with just one layout though! I have a terrible habit of starting minis and never putting any actual content in them. I am working on changing that! While I don't do PL I did recently get two Handbooks from Studio Calico, one that I plan on using as a travel album for our family vacation coming up this summer. I decided to get a headstart on the travel album and these tags were the perfect solution! The pocket system is a whole new world for me, it may take a little getting used to.

Thank you so much for looking! Next up on the hop with even more inspiration is Amy

{crafty} Cambodia layouts

Last August I tackled my first layout to document my trip to Cambodia and since then the rest of those pictures have been sitting and taunting me. I have been squeezing in more and more time lately to craft and create some scrapbook pages and I find that I am reaching for those pictures more often than not. I have started with a few of my favorite pictures but I have so many more! I *think* I might create a few more layouts and then stick them in album together with pocket pages to hold the rest of the photos.

With this layout I wanted to record some of the details of the trip. It is so amazing to look back and recall just how amazing it was to be there and help.

 Thanks for looking!
