Summer Mini Album- Blog Hop July 29th

Happy hopping ladies and I certainly hope you have been inspired by the mini's you have seen so far.. You should of arrived here from Melisa Waldorf's blog !
The mini album I chose to work with is a 6x6 light weight chipboard mini.. You can check this out by clicking HERE..  There were lots of pages to work with and I also chose one page element and it was the film roll.. I  was only able to incorporate one onto my mini album because I chose so many different dye cuts to decoreate it with..

so, here is the mini I created for out hop:
The cover.. 
Since this mini is mainly of my boys, I wanted it to look masculine and fun.. there are no flowers in this mini..LOL (I can hardley believe it myself...LOL)

On these pages I have added the photos of us first leaving the dock.. we sat outside and watched the scenery.. It was a beautiful day out that day, but as always a bit windy on deck..LOL

the photo on the left is of my boys and my niece Kristiina.. then I have just photos of my boys that I took while we were on the cruise..

On the very top floor of the ship, was a play area for the kids.. they had a pirate theme Guitar Hero challenge going.. all the boys stood in line waiting for the chance to play.. This was the first time my boys had ever played Guitar Hero!!  these photos are of Aaron
and these are of Adam.. 

it got boring standing in line waiting for your turn.. so, I got lucky enough and snapped a funny photo of Adam pretending to be pouting and then some more of him playing..
and then finally some mixed matched photos that I really wasnt' sure what to do with it, but wanted to add them to the mini album anyway.. My mom is on the right and behind her photo is a pull out tag with a photo of Aaron on it playing...
Well ladies.. Thank you all so much for hopping on by.
