Big Swamp Harley-Davidson Scrapbook Album Page!

I am happy to say that I survived a Luau Sleepover Party of 17 this past weekend! This marks the end of my girl's birthdays until 2014! YAH!! And with only 3 days left of school I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel! I have never looked forward to Summer Break like I am this year, the 5th and 6th grade homework really took it's toll on me LOL!! And I am really looking forward to having my evenings back to spend crafting and not googling how to divide fractions!!

I am trying to complete my 2011 mini Album from our family vacation. So I decided to work on one of the pages.
Back in the day.... (pre-children) My Darling and I used to ride his Harley all over Long Island and when we moved to Arizona we used to go on all the runs to Nevada. We had such great times. Every state we visit we always make a pit-stop at the Harley Davidson Motor Cycles to grab a souvenir. We stopped off at the Big Swamp in Alabama they had a great mural painted on the wall so we stopped for a quick picture. I kept the tissue paper and a box one of the gadgets came in and used them both on my page.
