I love taking family road trips.   This was a trip with my husband, Dad and brother back in 2011 when we drove from Missouri to DC to visit my daughter.  We had several stops for sightseeing planned along the way.    One of the big ones was The Biltmore Estates where we spent most part of a day.   We had all been there once before each except my Dad so it was so great to be able to take him.
He loved it.

I kept this layout really clean and simple with just the 3 pictures and a heart drawn around my Dad and brother.   Then I used memorabilia I had saved for the title and the journaling.
The sketch I used was the sketch #221 at  "USE YOUR STUFF"   perfect for using memorabilia or lots of journaling.    Check it out    HERE.
