Vacation Anyone??-BBTB2 Challenge

Hi my crafty friends, it is Monday so that means another BBTB2 challenge.  This week our talented and sweet design team sister Carole picked the challenge "vacation" since we are in the summer months.  I started an "interstate" vacation mini the other month so I decided to do another page or two for in that.  I have lived with all guys, there are 7 in my family and I'm the only girl, so you know what that means don't ya?!  Yes, it is all about the guys even when all but 2 of them are gone out the house. lol  Hubby and I got into the car and drove west, just the two of us.  It was a kinda' spur of the moment trip.  I created this little mini to hold our pics from that get away.  To see the cover and first page go here.  For toady's pages I used Sports Mania, 50 States, and Art Philosophy.  Our first stop was Canton Ohio to see the Football Hall of Fame, this is where the guy stuff comes into play-this trip was all about my man seeing stuff that interests him. lol  I will have to admit the Football Hall of Fame was pretty amazing even if you aren't into football. Did you know that Pro Football begain in my state of PA?  Who Knew??  Ok football fans probably knew, I did not. lol  Even the hubs learned some things from this amazing stop.  So the first page starts our stop and the second and many more pages to come is about the Hall of Fame.  Because of the size of the mini I can't get to much embellishments (or pics) in there so I have to keep it pretty basic and simple.  I hope that you will go check out the rest of my design team sisters at BBTB2, they have some awesome projects on vacations and while you are there please read our simple rules and join us in this vacation challenge!!! Please note that starting with this challenge we are going to one week instead of two weeks to get your project linked.  Happy vacationing!

Oh, this is so cool, Brenda. I can't believe I've never bought that 50 States cartridge. I should definitely have it since we live in an RV and travel all the time. I'm sure hubby will understand that logic if I buy it, don't you think? We've driven by that Hall of Fame on numerous occasions and never stopped because hubby is a hurry up traveler. Get where we're going then be a tourist. Fabulous job. I hope you share the rest of the project as you go along.
