|Remember the old Shimelle 4x6 Photo Love? I went digging looking for a sketch to help me put these 3 photos onto a layout and ended up back at this post with my focus on the Photo Booth Love layout that led me to create this layout of my own.|
I wanted to be able to incorporate a lot of different patterned papers so the layout wouldn't be all brown and green (the primary colors in the pictures). I love how the little blocks of several papers brings some pop of color to the whole piece without overwhelming the photos.

For the title I didn't have any letters in the color I was looking for but the Basic Grey white chipboard alpha set worked perfectly when combined with a little Copic marker coloring. It's hard to tell in the picture but they actually came out a little uneven in the coloring so it mimics the look of water. Perfect!

I'm determined to get the photos from this vacation we took as a family back in 2010 (oh my) put on to layouts. Not sure how I neglected to take care of them sooner but they obviously got overlooked - or maybe I just wasn't inspired at the time. Needless to say, they are getting taken care of now.
I have noticed that many of the pictures from this trip aren't fantastic and maybe that is what dissuaded me from putting them into my books. In hindsight, I don't really care how good the pictures are, it's more the story they tell that I want to hang on to. It was a great trip seeing some amazing sights, spending lots of time with my siblings, parents and uncle and those are the things I want to be reminded of when I look back through my scrapbooks.
