Our Trip To Bernkastel

Hey there fans, friends and family!
My hubby and I recently took a trip to Bernkastel, Germany (along the Mosel River).  I thought I would share some photos with you so you can see just how gorgeous this village is!  Keep scrolling.  I felt like I was in Epcot, only it was even cleaner, the food was good and it was a LOT cheaper.  Hehe...

My first layout features my youngest son, JJ (Jeffrey) and the kit Camping Out.  I love taking different twists on kits.  This layout has nothing to do with camping, but still shows off the lovely papers, textures and splendid elements you can find in the kit.  There is even an alpha for a title, sentiment or journaling.

And here we are camping out in the backyard with my two, darling nieces.  The boys go crazy when they come over and they provide a nice balance to my rough and tumble boys.  I used a glow effect on the photo frames, moon, stars and light beam.  Cool, eh?  I also ditched the "s" in Outdoors and added the other word art, adventure, provided in the kit.  The dragonfly helps cover a boo boo I couldn't fix with my c…
