Weekly Layouts

I thought I'd share two more recent layouts and my inspiration for each. 

The first is a layout from when we visited the world famous Maroon Bells a year ago!  It was our 21st anniversary weekend and we stopped to hike and enjoy the most photographed spot in Colorado. 
The sketch I used is from Scrapbook Generation.  When I saw the trees, I knew it would be perfect.  I absolutely love their sketch books, but you can also find some free sketches to download here:
I used the 3" x 3" photo blocks to showcase one panoramic photo.  I love taking panoramic shots and I sometimes find them hard to scrapbook.  So, I had to move the journaling strips, and that upper rh dead space was just begging for some embellishments!
And, no, I didn't hand cut all those trees.  They were done in a snap on the Silhouette Cameo.
We stayed at the Maroon Bells long enough to do some hiking.  So I had lots more photos of our day.  I decided another two pay layout would be perfect.  This one is a bit different for me.  The rh side is a 12" x 12" diecut from the Silhouette Cameo.  I'm loving these!  They are so easy to make.
There is solid cardstock backing the title box, and the trees are backed with a green wood grain patterned paper.  These brightly colored papers really complimented the photos!  No matting necessary.
The rh side is simply 4" x 6" and 3" x 4" photos placed in a straight grid style.  I didn't have a lot of room for embellishments, but added the compass and the mountains with pop dots.  The subtitle, word strips, and the hiking boots are stickers. 
Ever so slowly catching up.
