A special thanks to my sweet friend Jinny Newlin. If you've never visited Jinny's blog and soaked up her amazing cards and scrapbook layouts you really need to pop over there. She inspires me constantly with her amazing layout ideas. She also helped me out with some tips for trying to get my pages photographed decently. Not the greatest results but they're better than the first ones I took thanks to Jinny. LOL
I decided to do a two page spread using the photos I took on the trip my mom and I took to the local botanical gardens back in March
Here's a closer look at the first page.
One of the sources Jinny uses for her great layouts is Sketches in Thyme. I was able to find one there that would let me utilize such a large number of photos and thankfully the lady in the camera department at Wally World showed me how to print them out in wallet size so they'd all fit. Here's what the sketch looked like.
Here's the second page.
Same basic construction with two more of the sentiment stamps, the one near the photos and the little "Date Taken" on on the ticket. Used a Kraft Outlet tea dyed tag and added a rub on on it. The journaling spot and the other designer paper elements are from Kaisercraft's "Utopia" collection. I had just grabbed a mix of papers at Michaels that caught my eye color wise and the Kaisercraft papers just happened to match. I found the Sizzix die I did the title lettering with on clearance at Mike's too.
I love these sentiment stamps. They would work so perfectly on ANY layout. Don't you just love versatility. Hope you enjoyed my projects for this week. You still have time to enter the "Blue/Yellow/Neutral" challenge if you haven't yet. Thanks for stopping in!
