Just a couple of odd layouts from our travels...
One person who enjoyed our train ride at least a little was Dillon. He got to sit next to Grampa the entire time and plan their fishing expedition for later this summer. Right now everything Grampa does is 'cool' (or whatever the current word is). Wonder how many more years this will last? We hope a long time.
For the layout, I used Pink Paislee's Prairie Hill collection. I seldom buy the embellishments that go with papers. In this case, I cut up some of the designer paper that had these kite tales. It took awhile but was very easy. Then I used some of the other patterns to make my own rosettes. I did a video on this awhile back. You can see it here.
On our first morning of our trip , we had a visitor. I spotted this little black and white cat in the neighbor's driveway. They checked out that day. It wasn't long before he took up residence on our porch. He was very, very friendly and tried to get in the cabin at every opportunity. We don't think we were his first vacationers. He stayed with us and the last full day when some new people checked in next door, I saw him back over in their yard. We enjoyed his company for a few days and he enjoyed all the treats he could get.
For the layout, I found these kitty stamps at the $1 store. I selected 3 of the inchies - (one about meowing, one about sleeping, and one about eating) and built a frame around the title, photo and journaling using the inchies and some kitty tracks for embellishment. The Sahara Sand cardstock is stamped with a woodgrain stamp to mimic the deck where Tuxedo (as we called him) spent most of his time.
A little twine added some flow and color. The papers here are Macho Nacho from Jillibean Soup.
I think I'll break from vacation photos for awhile and do some other pages. Thanks for stopping by!
