WE’RE OFF – May 2, 2010 – South Padre Island, Texas – A 12×12, single page, 2 photo travel based scrapbook layout.
SUPPLIES USED: Roam papers by K&Co, Cricut Expression, SCAL basic shapes, Flamingo svg file, Vellum letters for title, Journaling cards
TECHNIQUES TIPS: For those of you who don’t know me well, you may not know that besides my hubby and myself, we have a pink flamingo, Pinkie, that travels with us across North America. I can’t say enough how much I love my Cricut and use it at least once on almost 95% of my layouts. I wanted this layout to showcase our silly travel companion and an even sillier outfit that a fellow camper dressed her in. I did not have a flamingo embellishment so I set out to look for one on the internet for a svg file that I could create my own flamingo.
JOURNALING: Pinkie’s outfit here was actually a dog’s outfit. Sandie surprised us one day! Although we have really enjoyed our stay in South Padre Island, it is time to start the trek north. We left early on May 2 and drove over 700 miles to overnight in a rest area just east of Van Horn, Texas.
