WT168: Pack it Up!

For today's Ways to Use It Challenge, we were asked to use packing supplies on our project OR have a project related to packing and travel was brought up as a potential theme for one's project. I thought about an upcoming trip to Florida which of course made me think about all of the wonderful experiences I had with Madeline on our last trip. I decided to make a scrapbook page which is really unlike me! I printed a couple of pics from Madeline's first trip to the ocean and just went from there. I decided to use my own handwriting only because the journaling I had typed out and printed with my photos ended up not working out with the layout I ended up using. It wasn't my original intention to have the page laid out this way, but it's how it all came together. I had trouble with the journaling the first time I tried writing it and so I covered it up with the smaller pic and tried again over to the left. The second time, I used a wavy line template that I had in order to help keep my writing to look a little neater on the page--I thought the waves worked with the ocean theme, but I think I would have preferred straight lines. Oh, well--I'm just happy to have a scrapbook page done and seeing that this one was completed pretty quickly, I might have to make another to go with it in my album.
Materials: Sahara Sand, Basic Black, American Crafts DSP and Thickers (vinyl), Zig

The first thing that caught my eye were the wavy lines. I love it! Make another page to go with it. This is what I need to inspire me to get going with scrapbooking again! Nice job.
