Summer Time Fun a Page from my Mini Travel Scrapbook!

I don't scrapbook, but I do like to  Smash book and make mini books. I have been procrastinating making a book for our Family Vacation to Georgia from last year. I was able to make one for my In-Laws but mine has been sitting in a box, so today I thought I would make one of the pages! I won't actually add this page into the book until I complete all the pages so they end up in the correct order. You can see a similar travel book I made here! It is about 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 in size.

We stopped at a place called Priester's Pecans which is famous for its candy and super large Waffle cones. They have all these rocking chairs out front so I was able to take a fun picture with kids and Grandmas all lined up eating ice-cream!


I made sure to grab fliers, notepads, and anything else I could find that I would be able to use in this book during the trip. I hid the YUM under one of the Priester's Customer surveys!
