In April, I did a better job of documenting some of the little things that happened. On the first page, I put a picture of my "view" for one weekend. I hurt my back and had to lay down for almost the whole weekend! I had my phone, iPad, and DVR to entertain me! On the second page, I included a receipt and a picture of an ice cream date with my friend Jamie. Mom and I celebrated our birthdays together. I had a breakfast date / catch up session with a friend from undergrad that month too.
Joe surprised me by suggesting a quick trip to Orlando's Univeral Studios and Universal Islands of Adventure to celebrate my birthday. We got engaged at Universal Islands of Adventure, so it's a special place for us. It was a whirlwind trip - we took an evening flight after I got off work Thursday night and came back Sunday afternoon. So fun! I used a page from a SMASH pad to document when and where the trip took place. I saved a photo retrieval paper and layered it underneath a picture of us in Harry Potter world. Perhaps the best surprise was when Joe insisted on leaving the park early on my birthday. I was annoyed but got over it when I saw where he was taking me - to Tiffany's! I got a beautiful key necklace that I had been wanting for a long time. We ate at Bubba Gump's in CityWalk that evening.
I tried to do something a little different on this page - mostly because I had a lot of pictures to include and not a lot of space. I didn't want to cut any out, and I wanted to include some journaling about the trip to Dollywood. I applied washi tape to the front and back of a piece of scrapbook paper to create a flap. I journaled on the flap and hid the pictures behind it. A border punch on the side of the flap allows pictures to peek through.
I love reading each and every comment!
