For years, I've been saving up to take my Mum on a special holiday to thank her for all the amazing things she has done for me.  In January, it finally came together, and we set off on our first ever cruise trip!  Now I've started to put together an album to capture those memories.  I imagine it will take me a long time to finish, but that's part of the fun too.

DCWV Watercolour patterned paper
Washi tape
Graphic 45 Come Away With Me - Vintage Voyage patterned paper
Creative Embellishments Out of this World chipboard frame
Kaisercolour Spearmint acrylic paint
White photo corners

The design of my page was inspired by:

More Than Words ~ The MEMORIES theme is a wonderful one, and this layout certainly brings back memories of our departure day.

Creative Embellishments ~ I used a circular CE frame, muted colours, and this will become a Ladies Home Holiday Journal!  I included a vintage image as my journalling card.

Thank you for visiting my blog!
