Silver Moon Charters - Cruise 2013 - Barbados

As part of our caribbean cruise back in 2013, we booked a snorkel tour while we were in Barbados.  Silver Moon Charters was the company we used - they were great!  The trip started out with a snorkel with the turtles.  That was AMAZING!  Then, after some sailing, we stopped off shore for lunch.  We swam to the beach and explored while the staff prepared lunch.  The trip ended with a nice sail back to the dock.  I would recommend this tour to everyone.  The catamaran we were on had our family and 2 other families.  Very private and very fun!  This page is just one layout for the tour.  I found this great sketch over at Scrapbook Challenges. Sketch 428!

The second page is for a color challenge I found at Scrap Much?.  I have never done a color challenge before so I'm not sure if I did it correctly.  I only used a few colors from the palette.  Anyway, below is the page.

And here are the two pages together, as they were intended!

Fishing and Eating - Puerto Rico

While we were in Puerto Rico a few years ago, the guys went deep sea fishing. They caught all kinds of fish: big ones and little ones.  The mentionables are the King Mackerel that my son caught, and the Jack fish that my husband caught.  After fishing, they took the fish to the marina grill, El Varadero Seaside Grill, and had some of the smaller fish cooked up for dinner.  The girls joined them for a nice fishy dinner!

I scrapped one page of my two page layout using the challenge (LM #229) at Lasting Memories.
The layout doesn't make tons of sense yet since I don't have the first page done, but hopefully, you will get the idea.  The complete quote for the title: Teach a man to fish, and he will EAT IT!
