Mexico 2011... Project Life style!

News Flash.... I am finished scrapping photos from our 2011 family trip to Mexico!! Yay!!!! I did about 10 12x12 full page layouts and the rest of the photos I scrapped using the Project Life format. It was SO much easier to get all of those photos scrapbooked. It would have just taken up too much time to do all 12x12 pages! I love this!

This was the title page I used to open up to the Mexico pages! I just have my Mexico pages in a book with the rest of the stuff in time around it!


I used my Cameo a lot on this page and added fun little bits here and there. 


We took quite a few of the "professional" pictures while we were in Mexico (where a photographer comes around and takes photos and you can buy them -- for a huge price). Turns out I bought some ..so it was nice to be able to put them in the protectors this way!


The photo of Ryan and I in the scuba gear was a very big photo.. almost 8x10 and I just cut it down to fit. 


This format made it SO EASY to get these pictures scrapped.. and I love how it looks! 


More large photos that was easy to put in these Stampin' Up page protectors. 


I have been using my Amy Tan stitching templates and I love them! :) I also found some free printables that I am really enjoying too! 


And the last page!


This was a lot of fun to do! I have my honeymoon photos to Cozumel all scrapped because I made a mini book, but I will totally do this in the future with other vacations, in addition to mini books. I also tend to add in 12x12 pages as well! Think about doing this sometime.. it is a time saver and fun! :)
