Last Month my husband and I took a trip to Costa Rica. We had a blast! But I wasn’t the only one on the trip nor was I the only one that would have memories from the trip. I began to ponder how I would get his input…..Got it.
My husband loves TV so I knew whatever involvement I was going to get needed to be quick and to the point. I emailed him 4 questions to answer regarding the trip. I knew his view point would be different from mine as he as been all over the world and I have not. So sit back and Enjoy The View.
Naturally this was a big event totally worth scrap booking with a bazillion photos right? RIGHT? However every photo, for me, doesn’t warrant an Oscar some are just supporting photos. This helps with the after vacation overwhelmed factor. I felt his point of view is just that, no photo needed to convey a feeling I have the feelings in writing.
Lets break it down.
I wanted this to be a fun, boy girl kinda page since it was both our thoughts about a tropical location. I gathered my supplies and got busy.
At first too bland I was missing something…duh girl color..PINK! Ah much better.
Once I got the base layer down time it was time print out my answers which in this case took the place of my photo and got busy!
To embellish the responses I added a few embellies and stamps but kept them in the boy girl theme of pink and blue.
used my silhouette to cut out the country of Costa Rica remember the best way to not forget about you die cutters is to use a die cut on every layout/card.
Looking for other ways to get family involved try these:
Use Social Media-tweets, FB posts, pictures they’ve taken.
Email a list of questions as I have done here
Simply Ask-record answers on a device or type them down
Create a lists of prompts.
If you have anymore tips please share I’d love to hear about them.
