Dimensional Cruise Layouts

It's currently week seven in the Dimensional Details workshop, but the last few weeks have been extremely busy around here and I'm just now sharing my layouts inspired by the week four materials. These three layouts are for our 10th Anniversary Cruise album.

This first layout showcases the photos we took at home on Christmas Day before we headed to Galveston.


Once we were on board the cruise ship, Robbie purchased yellow roses for our stateroom. I pressed some of the petals between the pages of a book when we were packing on our final day at sea. I included those petals in a clear envelope on this next layout. (I was scrapbooking with friends when I created this layout and just had to use a strip of that lacy ribbon that Frances had in her embellishment container - thanks Frances!)


And finally a layout that shows our New Year's Eve fun (& quirky) activity.


I'm hopeful that I'll find time to catch up on the last few weeks of Dimensional Details materials soon, but first I'm off to visit blogland and see what everyone else has been up to!

Hi Melissa! LOL! I responded to your comment about my favourite/non-favourite colours, and I laughed just now seeing your gorgeous yellow layout :)I find this class I do refer back to every now and then to get inspiration.Your layouts are fantastic (I remember that story about the Poseidon Adventure!).

I signed up for Becky's class and I just signed up for Elizabeth's photo challenge class.

Love those first 2 layouts...I'm a big fan of 'photos across the page' designs...and the yellow looks great.

Cheri said...

looks like you are becoming quite accomplished at clustering embellies!

Could that lacey ribbon look any more perfect with the roses? I don't think so!

I was thinking about you last night when it was announced on the news that the new series of Dallas would be arriving with us soon!

The rose layouts are so pretty and how clever of you to save some of the petals in a clear envelope for this layout.

What gorgeous pages Melissa - the roses one is really beautiful - especially with the addition of the petals themselves.

Tammy said...

Fabulous layouts! I love the last one with the blues and yellows. I also love that you saved some petals from the roses. So sweet! :)

What a lovely idea to use the pressed petals on the layout. The colours are just beautiful.
The choice of film made me smile! How inappropriate!

Both these pages are lovely: how lovely to use the rose petals, and I love that colour combination in the second one. Every post just makes his niceness shine!
