I've been out of town and away for almost a week. I am so thrilled to finally be home! I feel like I haven't had a chance to be creative lately - at least not for myself. So I decided I would sit down and work on a project that was all about me today. I put together a double page layout of my first day hike at Red Top Mountain. I took my baby girl Lola with me and we had a great time.
The title "Great Outdoors" was cut from - you guessed it - Graphically Speaking. Apparently this cartridge and I were meant for each other because I had no idea it had these wonderful outdoor theme sayings and cuts when I started designing this page. I also cut the circular "Fresh Air" as well as the tree from this cartridge.
The Red Top title was cut using MTC software with a ttf I have installed on my computer.
The hiker is from Going Places, and I found a place to put both the negative and positive images. I backed the negative image with a circle cut from Lacey Labels and then matted to a scalloped circle cut using a Spellbinders die.
The sign post is from Everyday Paper Dolls and is an image I have used several times before. It's hard not coming back to our favorites! I added a picture of the trail sign to it. I wanted to make sure I could remember exactly where I was when I was on this hike.
Last but not least, the journaling is handwritten on paper cut from Spellbinders Reverse Wonky rectangles.
Thanks for stopping by!!
