BAS Anniversary Crop, Mount of Beatitudes

FINALLY!! Yes, I finally scanned these layouts from the Bay Area Scrappers Anniversary Crop!! It's only a few months behind..haha. And I never did do the journaling I was meaning to do...I was caught up in stuff..LOL!

After leaving the Dead Sea, we headed off to Tiberias. We stayed at a really nice hotel, Gai Beach Hotel. We weren't supposed to, but plans changed...for the better at least :) I love this picture of Jasmin on the bus. Images like this is how we spent our time on the road. Hours on the bus, driving around from city to city. At least we were able to walk around and not strapped in with a seat belt. I was so proud of the kids. The early morning wake up calls, their not so usual breakfasts, and being up and ready by 7am was not easy. But they did it..they did it for 15 days!! At least we were able to bring along hard boiled eggs..haha!! But they would only eat the white part..haha! Check out the Sea of Galilee in the bottom picture...positively beautiful!!

First stop of the day was Mount of Beatitudes. Here is where Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount and shared the Beatitudes. "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God" Matthew 5: 3-11.

I have a couple more layouts from the crop, but I still need to scan them..LOL!

I love how you put so many pictures in a page and make it look so organized! Do you print them in 3R? Even embellishments are properly placed. I have always been inspired by your layouts. :-)
