I hadn't seen this week's challenge on Fantabulous Cricut till last night. When I did, I was so excited because I had actually sketched a layout of my road trip while on my road trip! It was saved in my Gypsy (I so love my Gypsy!!), see...
So last night, when I got to my scrapbooking room, I started looking for the papers to make this layout happen. I found the perfect paper of a road map in an old K&Co stack that I had used for my cruise album 2 years ago. I started printing pics as my cricut was making the cuts (gotta love those layers on the gypsy!). I love that I can use a variety of cartridges and have them cut all together. On this layout I used a bunch of cartridges, particularly Summer Vacation (lots of great stuff on there!), Going Places, and Everyday Paper Dolls.
Here is the final product:
I'm really into embossing lately, so all my titles were cuttlebugged!
I wrote in the price of gas that we paid to keep record of it because gas prices have changed so dramatically through the years, I want it documented in my scrapbook!
This cut started out as just an embellishment. Then it took on a life of its own as I put dots for our stops and then decided to include all the journaling on there, too. Luckily for me, I can make my handwriting fit in pretty much any space (some of my friends hate me for it, LOL!) and so I did. I really love to journal and in my own handwriting because I think its important.
I had fun making this layout and I hope you like it too! Be sure to leave a comment - I love those! Thanks for stopping by!
