In July, we went to Annapolis, MD to visit Uncle Matt.  While we were there we went on a pirate ship.  I LOVED it.  The kids thought it was cool too.

Thanks to the quick shot feature on my camera, I took 1,900 photos in an hour and a half.  I did my best to print out the ones that really showed all the activities the boys did on the ship.  My 2 page layout turned into a 3 page spread.

The last 2 pages will be together in the scrapbook.  All the pictures of the water cannons ended up on 2 pages and I even cut a picture.  For me, that is a big deal.

Here is a closer look at the first page.  You can see the boat, the pirate dress, their 'tattoos,' my older son helping to hoist the flag, and my younger son with the coveted coin for the map.

Page 2 shows the treasure they found and part of the water cannon photos.  It also has a really cool pirate ship I cut out with the Cricut and 3 different cartridges.  The brad creating the Jolly Roger flag is awesome!

 Then the last page of the spread.  This shows the boys squirting the scallywag in another boat, getting 'groggy' from the soda and group photos.

All my favorite stuff is on this layout.  It has photos of my family during an awesome adventure, brads, eyelets, and my Cricut.  The only thing it's missing is Stickles.  I know this layout doesn't have a bunch of papers or techniques, but it's still one of my most beloved layouts.
