Like the crazy person I am....I've gotten myself in WAY over my head!!! LOL I joined a bunch of swaps right away last fall for the March Stampin' Up! cruise to Bermuda. One of the swaps is a 12" x 12" double page layout....that sounds pretty cool, I think.....but I have to make 26 sets of the 12" x 12" double page layouts!!!! I told you....I've lost my mind!!!!!!!!!!!! Here's the GREAT part - I will be coming home with 25 double page layouts - this will fill 2 scrapbooks!!!!! Once I get my photos know, some time in May.....I can just pop them into all my completed pages!

So - I figure that since I have all this work to do and SAB is coming up - which has me booked to the hilt (not complaining - very happy about this) - I better get my butt going. That's kind of my New Year's try and get things done before the last possible minute! I know Cindy will be proud of me! (that's a little inside joke) LOL

Soooooooooooo, last night I came up with the pages below for my Bermuda scrapbook swap! I wanted to use colors that were fresh and bright - that's what I figured a tropical vacation page should be!

You can click on any of the pictures to blow them up and get a better view.

Here's both pages together:

Here's a closer view of the left page:

Here's a view of the right you might ask....what is that vellum doing there? I plan to blow one of my photos up to 5"x7" and place it directly under the vellum.....which I'm going to run through my printer with my journaling on it!!!!! How cool is that???? I did this for a layout with my daughter and her puppy (Rudy). Those pages are on my blog someplace last year. It's a really cool technique and I can't wait to show you the pages loaded with photos!

Page Details
