VACATION BLOG HOP - MAY 20th - 22nd - DAY 2

Welcome back everyone!

Hope you've enjoyed hopping along so far.  Lots of inspirational ideas to be had by all the particiapnts,

Thank you to everyone who has left comments about my creations, very much appreciated.

So, for the 2nd day, I have more 8x8 scrapbook pages from my Portugal holiday.  I should have explained yesterday in my first post that I don't do scrapbooking that often.  I have done a couple of individual pages for various things, but never a whole book.  So if you find that the pages get less and less interesting, I'm so sorry, put it down to my lack of expeerience!

Again, the pages have been made up with 8x8 backing papers, paper cut to 8x8 size, my xcut cutting system, cuttlebug and various embellishments and of course my trusty double sided sticky tape.

If you wish to take part and re-live a favourite holiday you've been on or a dream holiday, then click the following link and that will take you to the right place. 

If you've been hopping already, you should have arrived at me by visiting Gill at , if you have, brill, if not, hop along to Nancy's blog at the start and see what she has made.  You'll be amazed!! There's so many talented people taking part in the hop, I really recommend you have a look at their blogs and what they have made for this hop.  Oh, and remember to leave a comment on each blog, you could win a great bundle of Blog Candy!!!

  1. Great layouts!!!!!I love this blog hop---
    Hugs, Anita

  2. I think your pages are just fine. Sometimes simple is best and lets everyone focus on the pictures. By the way I love the picture of the liquor bottles. I have a friend that takes pictures of all kinds of stuff like that. She took one picture of the moisture drops on her drink really close up and it was the neatest thing.
    Great layouts and look forward to seeing what you post tomorrow.

  3. Love the LOs Lisa - i forgot about when you went to cliff richards winery!! i will need to show my mum your pages tomorrow as im sure she will like them too.
