I do like to scrapbook regular layouts too, and I like them more than the Smash pages, but this is so much better way to show how our vacation was, I have kept a vacation journal for several years.. once I even made space for the pictures in between my journalling.. wrote what picture I wanted to use.. but the pictures never got printed and that is over 3 years ago now..
So a travelling printer like my Selphy is so great to have!!
And I think taking pictures of the layouts is the hardest thing to take picture of...
I didn't like so much pink/purple background so I washi'ed over most of the first page..
