St. Augustine Pages


There comes a point in scrapbooking each year when it suddenly dawns on me, I don't have that much left.  This is one of the marevlous moments of scrapbooking!  If I just did this section and another page in that section, a title page and something to end the book with, it will be done!  That's where I am with 2009.  I've been doing pages here and there along with 2010 Project 365; I'd just lost track.

This layout is part of our trip to Florida in the winter of 2009.  One more double page of this trip and I can move along to the other large event of the year - a big birthday for my hubby.  All of the smaller events and everyday stuff is complete.  I could conceivably have this ready for our anniversary next month.  Yippee!  I love the process of making albums yet there always comes a point, not only that I realize it can get done, but I want to get done.  There are always more albums to make...

Project Notes: 
  • The photo collages were done in Photoshop Elements and printed on 2 8 1/2 x 11 sheets.
  • This left only the titles, a little journaling and a couple of borders.  Since the subject matter for the photos was very busy I kept the embellishment to a minimum.  The "&" is cut from vellum.
  • ART is cut out of Basic Grey DSP and then cut again with the Shadow option from Really Rust cardstock
The subject matters of most of these photos is the Victorian art and collectibles at the Lightener Museum in St. Augustine.  Housed in a former 19th century luxury hotel, the architecture is almost as interesting as extensive of collection Mr. Lightener acquired for pennies on the dollar during the depression.  It's definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Ingredients:  DSP and stickers:  Background by My Mind's Eye; Maraccesh by Basic Grey; 365 Degrees from Pink Paislee for the journaling
Fonts:  Lucida Calligraphy, Bremen BD BT
