Creating The Crafty Life "Take Me Away" Blog Hop (Closed)

 Welcome to the CCL
"Take Me Away" Blog Hop!
Thank you for stopping by!

If you have just come from Tiffany's blog you are on the
right track....

Here is the lineup,....I'm the last stop!

Teresa - Scrappin T Place
Tiffany - Maineokie Scrapers
We are to create something that represented
vacations, destinations or places we would like to visit!
So, lucky me, I had the fortunate opportunity to attend my 20th high school reunion in July.  I say that dripping with sarcasm, of course!  The festive reunion happened to coincide with me and my husband's fifteen year wedding anniversary.  And, yes, they all happened in the same city...lucky us!  Killed two birds with one stone on that one!  The great thing about it was we were able to visit the same beautiful place we got married, see the church and experience the same things we did, hiking in the Ruby Mountains of Lamoille Canyon, Nevada.  Despite the sudden rain storm, we enjoyed every minute of it and I put our pictures in a Mini Album to share with all of you!  
I used BoBunny Country Garden papers on the cover and throughout my pages.

 Inside the front cover I added an envelope for all the extra pictures we took...there were so many!  The scenery was so beautiful, it was hard not to take a picture of every tree and rock we stumbled upon.
After our hike in the canyon we made a special stop at the church we were married at fifteen years before.  Still pretty as ever!

I won't bore you with the other other pages that look almost like this one, because you get the idea.  I made this mini out of some packaging from the oil and vinegar bottles I bought at World Market months ago.  See, saving things you'd normally throw away can save you a step or two in the mini album business...
Here's the packaging before the pretty papers! :)
