Eight more days summer vacation.  I can feel it, taste it...I need it!  Hard to see so many Facebook posts of those who have started summer.  But I will persevere, hang tough.  It is only a matter of days.

We are hoping this vacation is full of family time...I know the pool will play a huge role in that. A trip to Washington, DC, beach outings and my annual trek to Chicago.  It looks promising!

I created this layout to celebrate vacations.  I take so many photos of day trips or week long adventures and then get too overwhelmed to scrap them.  Bad habit that I want to change.

So here is my start.

I used the Palm Beach collection by Webster's to make this layout.  I love that yellow chevron.  Since I am a themed gal....I started a brain flow.  Ships equal sails.  Sails equal triangles.  I must use triangles.  Because when I first laid this page was boring.  When faced with a boring page, just give the mind a few minutes.  And it will come. 

I decided to tilt my titlework a bit too to go with the idea that Nathan used a bunch of wood blocks to build a ship.  He had criss crosses, diagonals and X. 

Eight more days and hopefully I will do a lot more imagination-flinging with my scrappy things!  There are vacation photos to be used.
