Vacation Memories

Here are 2 layouts that I have done so far of our summer trip to Brooklyn. The first is my traditional layout of Santino and my cousin Peter. I love the way it came. The colors are nice and bright, to match the picture!

The second is from our trip to my brother and sister-in-law's home in Pennsylvania. We went to a neat little ice cream shop called the Purple Cow Creamery. The kids had fun putting their faces in the cow cut out. The ice cream was just delicious too! It was a quaint part of Pa., Eastern, right next door to the Crayola factory that we went too.

That place was fantastic, and instead of a layout I'm going to make a mini book out of little brown lunch bags. A technique I saw on Jennifer Priest's site and at Collective Journey, my local scrap book store.

I used my cricut for the title letters in both lay outs. In the purple cow layout I used some new techniques. I used my new glimmer mist in purple and sprayed the white paper. I love that stuff. It is great and what a fantastic and versatile effect you get from it! I also did 2 firsts for me, one the multi photo, and second, no pattern paper! I have never used this many pics in one layout, and I sure have NEVER not used patterned paper. I enjoyed trying somehting different and love the layout.
Now since it's Sunday I am including 2 you tube videos from a very talented gal who edits them on the site. One is Eric, who I like much better than Bill and the other is a dedictation to Godric. Ever since reading the books, I can not abide Bill. Godric didn't have much of a part, but in the show they made it more integral, sadly not enough. His character was great.

  1. What amazing layouts P! I love the colors. Who is the pp by in the first layout? Great job with the Glimmer Mist and placement of all the photos! It looks great! Really like the way you did your letters too!
    See now I have not finished book one yet... and I thought Bill was the good guy... at this point Eric still freaks me out a little... you are making me want to go home and read!
