I felt like it was fitting to end this challenge with photos from the last day of school.  It was a bittersweet day as my kids not only ended a wonderful school year, but also had to say good-bye to their friends (because we’re moving in a couple of weeks).  My daughter, Maci, had the hardest time saying good-bye. When I went to pick her up, I found her surrounded by her friends.  Everyone was crying…including her teacher…which then made me cry.  In the past two years that we’ve lived here, she has been blessed with two amazing teachers (both pictured in this layout) & a wonderful group of friends.  I had a hard time watching her say good-bye, knowing that she would be starting all over again.  This will be her fourth school she’s attended since kindergarten, as we’ve moved every one to three years since she was born.  She’s been a trooper, but I think we’re all ready to be done with moving…

Here’s a few more pages I created from my sister’s blog: TWELVECOUNTRIES.COM.  I can’t get enough of my adorable nephew, Carter.  His chubby little cheeks & legs are the cutest!  They just finished their month in Australia & are off to a new country!  Check out their blog to see where they’ll go next!

If you’ve been following this challenge, you’ll have seen previous layouts from my sister & brother-in-law’s trip around the world.  This past month, they’ve been living in Australia, so of course they had to play with some of the native animals.  They had so many cute pictures of kangaroos that I just had to create more than one layout to showcase them all.  You can read more about their experiences on their blog: TWELVECOUNTRIES.COM. They have some great advice for traveling, as well as lots of amazing pictures of their adventures. Check out their blog to see what country they’re headed to next!

Today’s layouts showcase some new templates I’ve created that are great for larger pictures. Tulum was so beautiful that I really wanted to showcase these photos.  I’ve also included some information on the second layout that tells about the history of Tulum. This is a great way to quickly add journaling to your travel layouts & it’s educational for anyone who’s flipping through your scrapbook.  If you don’t know a lot about the area off the top of your head, all you have to do is google it (make sure it’s a reliable source).  Copy the info from the website, paste it into your layout, & you’re done!
