House Boats

Every now and again, I pull out some of my "leftover" travel pics. I still have photos from Italy, Bermuda, and an Alaskan cruise that I'd like to put on a layout. I go through my old photo envelopes with no real purpose other than hoping to match them up with papers from my stash. These colorful pictures of houseboats in the harbor at Vancouver jumped out at me, as did papers from October Afternoon's Boarding Pass collection.

 

But you know me, I had to mix in a few tidbits from elsewhere...like the Echo Park viewmaster reel cutout. See that strip of ship wheels on the bottom right? That paper has to be over 5 years old, but was perfect in color and theme. Just goes to show you...everything seems to find a use eventually!

I forgot to say, I'm so sorry to hear you didn't get to save any of your "Nancy Drew" books! Believe me it was a stretch for my mom to afford them also. I think she only kept it up because they helped my school work so much, because we didn't have much cash either. Love Penny
