    Summer Vacation 2012

    Hi Everyone, I am finally back home from my week road trip vacation up to Virginia. My family & I had a fantastic time up there. As much as I really didn't want to come back, I am happy to be home.

    "There is no place like home. There is no place like home."

    Wow, don't know why I have that line in my head. Isn't that the line from Wizard of Oz. Lol. Anyway, Now it's time for me to get rolling with scrapbooking all the wonderful photos I took. The hard part is deciding whether to use Studio J to drop my photos in the layouts online or make my own layouts with the awesome pattern paper CTMH has to offer.

    Well, while I try to decide on how I'm going to do my layout, below you will find a couple of photos I wanted to share from my trip.
