Once Upon a Time in Mexico
This is a fun layout with a siesta theme. Insert your digital images for a quick page, or print it out and embellish with souvenirs from your trip. You could add adhesive-backed gemstones to the sombreros, or add a pattern to the person's outfit with paper or rub-ons. Give the setting sun some extra oomph with clear glitter glue.
South of the Border Template
Use this cactus-themed layout to include a photo and some journaling about your trip. If you're planning to print the page you can make the title stand out by embossing it, then adhering some sand from your trip to the beach to the letters.

Scrapbooking Tips for Your Upcoming Trip
Make creating your pages easier by remembering to take a few items when you travel. Include a small notepad and pen, and take a few minutes each day to write down a few thoughts about what you did or saw. These notes will jog your memory when you begin planning your pages.
Take plastic storage bags to help corral and protect memorabilia. Save ticket stubs, postcards, menus, napkins, maps and brochures. These will not only help your memory, but can be used as page embellishments.
Does your trip include any of the many water activities available? Mexico not only has beautiful beaches, but there is a variety of boat tours, scuba diving, snorkeling, rafting, and fishing. If any of these are on your list, be sure to include a waterproof camera in your bag.
Preserve a Piece of Mexico
Vacations to Mexico are always memorable, and you can preserve and display your memories easily using these handy layouts. No matter what activities you enjoy on your trip, you'll have almost as much fun reliving the holiday while browsing your Mexico scrapbook.
