Old Vacation

I really wanted to try this last of the summer challenges at  "THE MEMORY NEST"   but I had to
find a picture.     My photo printer had run of one ink color last week before I went out of town so decided to be cheap and save money and ordered a generic brand instead of the regular Canon ink.
Put the ink in yesterday to print a picture and, the colors are not even close to right, everything had a dull grey look to it.    So I ordered the right ink last night from Amazon but had to go into the Archive of pre digital picture and find something to use.
I found this picture of trip we took to Cancun early December almost 25 years ago.    I thought it would be perfect because I knew I wanted a picture that I could use a heart with and this one was great with the kids and their Dad.  
Instead of a pocket like it shows in the sketch I found this great PL card that would work with the picture.    The card is what made go with the black and white scheme for the papers and then the red heart I cut and one pop of color with the check paper in red worked well with the poinsettia tree that there are standing in front of.

Here is the sketch and check out all the details and Design Teams take on Make it Monday #70
You still have till the end of the month to enter the weeks challenge or any of the ones from July and August for the summer grand prize.     I got them all completed, it was my goal to do it.    With being out of town for 8 days and then this week having my Dad and brother here, this is just my 2nd layout in two weeks.   But glad I stuck with it.
