My husband loves TV so I knew whatever involvement I was going to get needed to be quick and to the point. I emailed him 4 questions to answer regarding the trip. I knew his view point would be different from mine as he as been all over the world and I have not. So sit back and Enjoy The View.
Naturally this was a big event totally worth scrap booking with a bazillion photos right? RIGHT? However every photo, for me, doesn't warrant an Oscar some are just supporting photos. This helps with the after vacation overwhelmed factor. I felt his point of view is just that, no photo needed to convey a feeling I have the feelings in writing.
Lets break it down.
I wanted this to be a fun, boy girl kinda page since it was both our thoughts about a tropical location. I gathered my supplies and got busy.
|Supplies: Stash cardstock, wood grain and cork board and dots. Heidi Swapp and Fiskars Travel stamps , wood veneers, paper clips, Momento and distress ink|
At first too bland I was missing something...duh girl color..PINK! Ah much better.
Once I got the base layer down time it was time print out my answers which in this case took the place of my photo and got busy!
To embellish the responses I added a few embellies and stamps but kept them in the boy girl theme of pink and blue.
I used my silhouette to cut out the country of Costa Rica remember the best way to not forget about you die cutters is to use a die cut on every layout/card.
I use Momento ink on the top and bottom portion of the wood cut title. Love how it turned out.
Looking for other ways to get family involved try these:

Email a list of questions as I have done here
Simply Ask-record answers on a device or type them down
Create a lists of prompts.
