Totem Poles galore...

Totem Poles and lots of them . I used my Gypsy and Expressions to plan this title out and weld together. I torn papers and put them in the corners of the pages and then painted with white acrylic on the pics , instead of matting each photo. Also used a few postcard embellies and another 2-page layout is finished.

Up in the Clouds

Up in the Clouds in Alaska while on the train ride- I wish I could of been with my friend on this beautiful journey. Again a lot of 4 x 6 pictures and just using pre bought Alaska papers from scrap my trip. I did make a few clouds and stamped my title in them amd this simply 2 page layout was done.
 While up in the clouds they did take the time to adventure out a bit and take a few more photos. Once again I also used the Alaskan papers (bear pawprints)-and a few laser cut embellies on this layout

Wonderful sites while in Alaska

Oh the beautiful sites in Alaska...but they are kinda hard to scrap at least for me-but I do like the simplicity of the finished pages- and you see those sites in the photos and not all the embellishments that are usually on a layout. So here are 2- 2page layouts of just photos (all 4x6's) which I simply matted each photo and put them on special papers with Alaskan pictures as the background and a little sticker in the middle of the pictures which represents what was going on. A train ride and lots of photographic moments or sites.
 I did have a little more room to add a few embellies on the layout below. I used my crimper on some scrap paper in the colors I wanted to pull out -very earthy and then handmade a few square embellies and attached a button and some twine along with a title cut out with Cricut Expression and covered in Stickles for a little and pop. Behind the title was some distraction from the paper pictures so I painted or dry bruched white paint over the area for the title to go so it would be seen better

All Aboard..WP&YR Route

 This is a 2-page layout that I took separate pics of- I really like how this page turned took me awhile to plan it- but it was worth the time. I took some pages out of a brochure that she had in her supplies and cut out little stuff and the best part was I used the map of the route they were on. half of it on each page.
Also has some R&R scrap paper -but not enough for both pages - Cut out the title with my Gypsy and Expression and put the little compass in the middle of the O in the title


 Liarsville -above was another excursion to pan for of course I used a gold embossed special paper for the background and a few embellies cut out and used part of some Alaska paper for the trim on the bottom. Colors of the Alaska state flag- blue and gold.
Bridges & Tunnels...where some of the sites on their train ride from Skagway, Alaska over 70 miles north and then back again. I did  the banners in the colors of the train- yellow and green- and hand stitched with twine some X X X and eyelets in between
