Do I Have To?

And here it is. The last page of my Jamaica 2011 album.   What a pouty face I have.  It was a horrible and blurry photo but I decided I would use it anyway!  This was the first vacation I was truly sad to see end, hence the pout from the bus window.  I was not ready to go home.  Both the hubby and I were sick on this trip so we really only had the day we got there and the day before we left together where we both weren't sick.  It seemed like such a shame to have to go home.  I think if you are that sick that you can't leave the room for three days, your trip should be extended three days.  It's like sick days for your holidays!  Who do I have to talk to in order to get the ball rolling on that one?!

Ok how funny is it that the big sticker in the top right corner says AND?  The whole time I had it I would of swore it said SAND.  Even when I stuck it down I thought it said SAND.  And now that I see it on here I see that it says AND.  That is hillarious, so much so I had to make fun of myself!

I love sticker borders but I have a huge pet peeve that they do not reach edge to edge on a 12 x 12 sheet piece of paper.  Come on Manufacturers ... let's make stickers that go the distance!  To make mine stretch I actually cut them underneath where I have my glass bead (top border) and my date spot (bottom border) so that there was a small gap so that the ends reached the edges of my sheet.

I got this pretty acryllic butterfly from a dear scrappy friend for my birthday (Thanks Dana!) and I thought it worked perfectly on this layout.  I folded up the wings so that they would pop up and then just adhered the butterfly's body to layout.  I'm sure once this puppy makes it into an album he will be squished back down but until then it looks like he just landed there.

What a fun LO, even though you were sad at having to leave. It is bittersweet to head home after vacation. You want to see home again but don't want to leave the nice places you have visited.
(and your sticker does sort of look like the work Sand....hehehe)

Beautiful details & matching of patterned papers to the photo! That's the worst part of vacation it comes to an end!!!!!!
