My sister came to visit recently and we took some beautiful pictures of the fun times we had in New Mexico. I didn't need to make 8 albums this time, only 2, but decided that I would do both albums at the same time. This way I can get both albums done at the same time and not get burnt out.
|My sister's page - using the Close to My Heart collection|
For my sister's layout, I used a great collection from Close to My Heart, called Balloon Ride, that my mother bought for me once she heard we were going on a hot air balloon. The design and colors were perfect my for sister's taste and look great right?
|Here is my page using BasicGrey|
Both layouts include metal corners on the photo, using We R Memory Keepers Main Squeeze - I love that thing and love that I've found tons of corners at Tuesday Morning for .99 a pack - hello!
I outlined all the photos and papers in black ink, and inked the edges of everything on my layout with a silver ink pad. For my sister's layout I inked everything with blue. There are also some super cute rub-ons on both layouts about the word "bucket."
We've always wanted to take a hot air balloon ride and it was awesome. I used the title "Crossed Off the Bucket List" on both layouts, mixing up the fonts and using foam squares under the "crossed off" title. Too fun. Almost as fun as the balloon ride.
At this rate, I'll have both albums done in no time!
