Snap 3 - Completed Layouts

Last week I spent two days in Austin at my friend Amy's Annual Craft Retreat, and I completed my first scrapbook layouts of the year - 2 double-page and 2 single-page layouts!


I am very pleased with each of these layouts, but my favorite is the Bow Falls layout because I used papers that I probably never would have chosen if I hadn't been limited by the few things I quickly threw together when I was packing to head to Austin.


These papers work really well with the green waters of the Bow River (although the photo doesn't do it justice!). Here's a closer look that (somewhat) better illustrates the colors.


The other single page is a collection of photos from July of 2014. The chipboard embellishments came in a pack of goodies that Amy gave me as a gift when I arrived at the crop!


The two double-page layouts showcase photos from our Texas Spring Break vacation last year. For both of these layouts, I cut pieces from the memorabilia/brochures I had saved from the trip. I still need to add journaling to the Battleship Texas layout, but I want to wait until I put together a few more layouts from this trip so I can decide which stories to tell on which layouts.

 

Have you scrapped any layouts yet this year?

Joining in today with Helena's meme - Snap - a visually linked set of between 2 and 4 images.  The set can be based on colour or shape or subject.

I've made a few pages this year: but I certainly haven't done such a good job of including so many great pictures!

Waterfalls are some of my favourite things to photograph. Your photos & layout of Bow Falls is very good. Great Snap catch.

Oh I like the Texas holiday layouts - always enjoy ones with lots of photos.

Yes, I've been trying to do a page a week and managed a couple of pages last weekend. I'll share 'em on the blog soon.
