More "white" space

I always admire pages that leave a lot of white space.  Yet, my pages overflow with photos, journaling and large titles. So I thought I'd give Shimelle's sketch a try this week  Shimelle's Sketch.  The "white space" was to show off a great piece of pattern paper.  I oohed and ahhed over this piece from the Stampin' Up! Greenhouse Gala pack when it came in and knew I had to use it for our California trip.

Also, for this page, I worked with border stickers for the Products Every Which Way class at Two Peas in a Bucket.  I've layered some stickers.  Also, I recolored one. The red sparkly border was really white until I inked it with some Staz-on in Blazing Red and Timber Brown. The glitter still shows through.

This is a rare page for me.  I didn't use the computer for anything!  The journaling was done by hand, the photos were printed at Wal-mart, and I used stickers for the title - no Cricut.  I learned that you can use smaller letters for a title and still get the point across.

This is the first page in the California trip and it was one of my favorite days. Lenny and his friend Susan are in the photo when we were at a wine and food pairing at one of their special vineyards.  The weather was gorgeous; our friends, excited to show us their new community; and the food; delicious.  I remember being so relaxed, pain free, and happy that day after several stressful weeks before the trip.  It just felt so good!

One of the great joys of scrapbooking is getting to relive a wonderful day when you are doing a page.

Thanks for visiting!
