Even More Mexico Layouts

Hi Everyone!

Blogger is finally working for me again - yippee!  It's super slow, but at least I can post pictures now.

I have another layout to share with you from my Nov 2009 Mexico trip.  I know it doesn't look like it, but there is a Cricut cut on there. . . it's the red border cut from Paper Trimmings - a Cricut Circle Exclusive cart.

The paper is DCWV - I love the value of their stacks, especially when they're on sale at Joann's.

Since I had way too many pictures I wanted to scrap from this vacation, I really tried to narrow them down and maximize where I could.  I think I did pretty good by putting smaller sizes at the bottom of the page so that I could fit 13 total pictures on this 2-page layout.  My record is 19 photos. . . on one page, which I just realized I've never posted, so I've included it below.  That layout is also from my Nov 2009 Mexico Trip

I trimmed all of these into 1.5x1.5" squares.  Some day I'll have to learn how to work Photoshop and save myself some time.  All cricut cuts are from Pack Your Bags.  Paper is mostly DCWV.

Blogger Issues

Hi Everyone!

I was hoping to post a project or two, but unfortunately I can't get Blogger to upload any pics.  Hopefully it will be working this weekend.

Riviera Maya

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I've been MIA for a little while.  I was actually on vacation in Riviera Maya (Mexico) for 10 days.  It was great to relax in the warm weather, but by the end I felt like I was moving in slow motion and was ready to come home.

We stayed at 2 different resorts - Barcelo Maya Palace and Azul Sensatori - which really helps to break up the trip.

One of the days we went to Maroma (rated one of the most beautiful beaches in the world) and did some snorkeling and drove the speed boats.  I was terrified during the speed boat, can you tell in the picture below how hard that I am holding on?  They said it could not possibly tip over, but with salt water splashing in my face during the sharp turns, my 6 y/o taking turns driving it and being jarred every time we hit a big ocean wave, I didn't believe them!

Hmm, for some reason Blogger won't let me add any more pictures. 

I hope to have some projects to share with you soon!
