I decided to do a special album of our month long trip to New Mexico. The boys and I (and Martel occasionally) did so much stuff that I have enough to fill one! After spending way too much time trying to figure out the first page of the album, I came across some of the pictures of the "funny" things in New Mexico. Then I remembered a layout by Jennifer McGuire and for the life of me I cannot find the link to share her layout with you.
One of the places we went was this GINORMOUS scrapbook store in Roswell. (see the picture of the alien street light?) I gave Martel the whole "I bet they have specific New Mexico things that I won't be able to find anywhere else" speech and he fell for it. Actually, he's really supportive of my scrapbooking. He saw this very bright paper with the colors and symbol of New Mexico and wanted me to buy it. I have to say, that it's perfect for this page.
