Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge #19

I am excited to share the main challenge and my layout for August from Scrapping Everyday Miracles with you.  First here is the challenge

So this month the challenge is to create a layout about one of your favorite vacations

A vacation is a time when we can be free from the responsibility of work, duty or activity. Vacations can be one of the ways God blesses us with times of rest, relaxation, and refreshment.  To many of us the first thing that may come to mind is "family vacation"...but a vacation can take on many forms. It could mean a romantic getaway with your husband, a church retreat, a yearly camping trip, or a fun weekend of scrapbooking with friends. It could also be a child's summer vacation from school and a chance to capture (and scrap) all those fun summer memories at home. Whatever the "vacation", share with us why it was so special to you, and maybe even how God used it to "refresh" you!

SCRAP TWIST: You must use a stencil/mask on your layout. Don't have a stencil or mask? Create one of your own using cardstock and your punches!

Here is my layout...

This was just little mini cruise to Copenhagen for two nights... Here is the story about how God blessed my husband and I.... We were just so excited to finally get to go together.  a few months before this we tried to go but we were turned back and not allowed on the boat because I didnt have my passport with me.  See we were running late to the ariport to fly to Oslo and realized that I didnt have it with me.  We figured we would be okay since we were only going to Denmark and most Norwegians only travel with their drivers license and mine with me.  We were wrong!  We were both so sad when we couldnt go.  But as sad as that situation was God used it for good and it made this trip even more special!!! I have and always will love spending time with my husband... even if it was just a couple of days it is a very special time!

I included my ticket to our room on the layout and a little passport to remember the passport mishap...  I used a mask to spray the red lattice pattern... and then cut it out and glued it to the page for the scrap twist.


  1. Hi Nicole! This is beautiful! I love the navy look! Great job!!!TFS!

  2. How lovely that the Lord revealed the silver lining to the loss of that first cruise so that you and Lars found this trip even more special. What a wonderful LO!! Love the masked and fussy cut photo mat and the paint splatter combined with punched mini circles is such a great accent!! ~ Blessings, Tracey

  3. great layout and I love that you included all the ephemera from the trip! Here's a tidbit for you...My Grandmother was to come to America via the Titanic and her papers weren't ready and she was turned away. Isn't it amazing how God works!

  4. I love the photos,and that little mini passport.


Thank you for taking you time to comment. I really appreciate it!
