Family Tradition - Better Living Through Scrapbooking

This week's challenge at BLTS is to scrap a Family Tradition. Check out the challenge details!

“Family Tradition” challenge

Create a layout about a family tradition, event, or something your family regularly does together that is not holiday related.

Choose at least 2 of the following:
1. Use three or more photos from a family event, cropped to fit your page design.
2. Use paper or supplies on your page that are at least a year old.
3. Use the word “tradition” in the title of your page.
4. Use hidden journaling in your page design.”

As a military family several of our traditions have come and gone with the changes in our lives, where we are living and if Rick is home or deployed. The kids and I have had several "traditions" but coming up with one that has stuck for a long time is difficult. There is one thing though that Rick and I started a few years ago and I don't see that one ever changing, at least not in the near future. Every summer we take a road trip on our Harley and little Lucy even comes with us (that's her in the pouch wearing the doggles). For this challenge I chose to use options number 2 and 4. I have had this paper collection for quite some time and I still think it is just adorable. It was perfect to incorporate the adorable owl button from our sponsor Charlene's Button Box.  I tucked a journaling tag inside of an envelope and placed it behind the picture. It just talks about how we started taking trips, where we have been and where we plan on going next summer.
