Yes, we did make it (and I scrapped the page to record the memory), but it wasn’t pretty! The good thing was that it was pretty when we got there, so it was worth it! Where am I talking about – Hawai’i! Yep, and it was me asking the question Are we There Yet?!
I started out with this sketch from Grand Diva’s Scrappy Friends challenge:
I liked that there were spots for multiple photos and that they were small since I was using pictures from my phone (and that phone did not have a great camera on it.) Also the fact that the photos were divided worked well for my page, too. Then there was the layering and the strips along the top – just a wonderful sketch for my page!
Shall we take a look?
Now, I really loved the fact that artwork that was hanging in the hotel was on our room keys and that they let us keep them when we were checking out. I thought this would be a fun place to display them because it’s when we first saw them (and the artwork.)
In general, I loved how I was able to customize my papers for the die cuts by using the Distress Inks to watercolor and how all Distress Inks seem to go together very well no matter what.
And I’m very happy that Kelly’s Scrappy Friends Challenge:
allowed me to focus on the wonderful oranges and yellows that were in the artwork on our room keys!
The patterned paper and washi tape are from Bella Blvd and I used my favorite Scotch Quick Dry adhesive on the wood veneer pieces, my Xyron Mega Runner for the larger pieces of paper and my Zig fine tip and chisel tip glue pens for the smaller paper bits.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I’ve got more to share in the coming days, so I hope to see you back soon!
