Santa Cruz Mini Album

Hi everyone!! :) Hope your week is off to a great start!
It is SO nice to be feeling good again and getting my MOJO back. Hes been lost for a long time while I went through some hard times. But its made a good return and I have been busy busy creating with Project Life, a Mini Album and designing some new stamps that you will be seeing in the next month or two. I have some BIG announcements coming in July and August and I can't wait to share with you. It's eating me up holding them secret. lol

Today I am sharing a Mini Album I did of our trip to Santa Cruz, CA area. We had so much fun on our trip. We visited Santa Cruz, San Jose and San Francisco. 

All the supplies I used will be listed 

Album Cover:

I used the album from October Afternoon 9 to 5 collection. I love this album. 

Travel Record. We are heading to Santa Cruz RV Resort in Felton, CA.

Our Pomeranian Prince was having fun driving us to the yard to pick up our trailer. LOL! He was so sleepy he passed out! (We were parked for this picture)

The second day on our vacation we drove to San Jose to visit the Winchester House. While my daughter and hubby toured the house I went to a local Scrapbook store. It was a great day!

For dinner on this day we went to Buca di Beppo! YUM! Was so good!

Third day we hung out at camp all day to check out the campgrounds. I went for a walk around the camp while hubs and kid went to get her a scooter since we forgot our bikes (oops!)

Fourth day was the BEST day! We took a trip to San Fran!! It was so much fun!! We drove over the Golden Gate and then we drove around and checked out the town. We had lunch at The Original Buffalo Wings ... omgosh it was SO SO good!! We drove down Lombard St. and it was so neat! Then we headed to Pier 39 to check out the shops and sights. The pups got the most attention at the pier! We stopped and picked up Joes Crab Shack for dinner then went to the park and ate. While we were stopped me and my girl spotted some super cute Owl hats and we HAD to have them!
LOL! Such a blast!

Fifth day I stayed at camp to rest my back from all the fun in San Fran. I was so sore. So hubs and kiddo went to the Roaring Camp and road the train. So fun!

Then they went down to Santa Cruz and played at the Santa Cruz boardwalk. They had a BLAST! I wish I could have gone too. The kiddo got a bracelet and rode a TON of rides over and over. She had so much fun! Then they went mini golfing. And for dinner they brought me fish and chips and clam chowder from the boardwalk. It was so amazing!

The next day we headed back to Santa Cruz to do some antiquing and shopping. I found an AMAZING art store called Palace Art Supplies. It was HUGE and had so much great stuff. I got some great goodies there. Then we drove down to see the lighthouse and the ocean. We had dinner at a little greek restaurant, it was amazing.

Almost everyday my hubs made us pancakes, he makes the best! They were so good! We watched some movies together and relaxed. Enjoyed some smores over the campfire YUM!

It was just a great, great vacation!! We had so much fun! So sad that its over but we were all also homesick. Kinda glad to come home! :)

I hope you enjoyed my mini album and thanks for letting me share with you my fun and amazing vacation with my family!

Next, when I get time, I want to do a mini with this daybook. I just love Amy's stuff.


I will be back soon with some Project Life updates. Trying to get caught up after vacation on everything! Missed everyone and will be getting around to visit tonight and tomorrow.

Off to blog hop and work on some art!

Thanks for stopping by!
