CJ Layouts for Scrapping Sisters Swap

Here's the first layout on the CJ from a group of scrapping sisters swap.  This is for Kathi's theme.  Four things you take on vacation.  Hats, maps, family and CAMERA.
I lived in the sun growing up, at the beach and outdoors, so now it's hat time and sunscreen.  Maps, we have enough maps to wall paper a mansion. And yes, we have a GPS.  Family. I need to remember family, and remind them to... well, if you travel with family, you understand what I mean.  Camera.  I promise you, it's the last thing out the door.  I fret over it and all the chargers to everything...camera, cell phones, iPod adaptor, laptop...you get it.  The camera.  Last week, I told my daughter, grab the camera.  "Ok," she says while I take the  dogs out.  We reach her horse show.  "Where's the camera, baby?"  "Oh, sorry."  That's why it's the last thing out the door, swinging on my shoulder.
This second page layout is truly how my brain thinks for a week ahead of the trip.  And poor Bill, he deals well with this "fret" issue.  (He likes to take pictures also.  I think we need to get another camera, but honestly, I would use them both!)
Now I am off to scrap the CJ layout due for next week.  Kathi, hope you get a laugh out of mine!  Stay warm in that Texas snow while I suffer a snowless Connecticut winter.
Happy Valentine's Day to all.

I love how you used the clips with sheets of paper in them. I also like how the solid background provides a perfect backdrop. Nice balance.
