Shedds Aquarium

Our grandkids went on a road trip for a quick summer vacation with their parents to Chicago for Dads work conference and also some time together for sightseeing.    One place they went was Shedds Aquarium and the kids absolutely loved it.

I will use this layout in two different challenges.

I used the challenge #450 at  "LASTING MEMORIES"  They have weekly themed challenges and the June theme is 'Summer Fun & the Outdoors'  and week of June 9th the theme was 'Vacation Photos'   So these photos and layout were perfect for the challenge.   Her is more info and the link to

It's time for our second challenge of the month - are you ready? Our theme for June is "Summer Fun and the Outdoors" and this week's challenge is something I'm sure we all enjoy - vacation photos!

LM#450 - 'Vacation Photos'

Your challenge this week is to scrap those wonderful vacation photos. Anything goes and if you don't have vacation photos, then do a 'staycation' layout.

patterned paper  and I also used numbered patterned paper and then have the date in my journaling also for more numbers.
