On our travels east to the beach each summer, we inevitably hit gridlock, as traffic nears the tunnel in Mobile. Recently we found a little detour that takes us through the old tunnel and keeps us moving towards our destination. My journaling describes the excitement we feel on our way to the beach and contrasts it with our feelings one week later as we envy those traveling the opposite direction.
Here is my layout, created with one of Scraptastic Club's April kits, Eight Days A Week, main and add-on:
The cityscape is supposed to represent Mobile, but it also kinda reminds me of a sandcastle! After all, it is a page about our travels to and from the beach. One layer of fussy cut buildings popped up over the other creates a nice little niche for adding all those flags.
I loved the silhouetted building so much that I created a card with a similar design, using a washi tape banner in place of the flags.
Before I go, I would like to share one more page, also created with Eight Days A Week. On this layout, the bright colors of the kit give life to a very old, underexposed, pre-digital age photo.
And have you noticed? This month at Scraptastic, we are culling many of our page titles from songs. It's sort of fun to go through the music of favorite artists, picking out titles that work. "There And Back Again" is a song by Daughtry. "Come Away To The Water" is by Maroon 5. Have you ever used a song title or song lyrics on a layout?
