I got out the photos and materials for this layout right as I was finishing up the Green Lakes layout. I wanted to do something that looked completely different, so I challenged myself to find photos with a new color scheme and theme. I think it’s pretty amazing that these two layouts are made from the same kit!
The title is cut with my Silhouette using the font Wolf in the City, using some aqua cardstock I had in my scrap drawer. I’m getting pretty low on embellishments from this kit (Studio Calico’s “Mind the Gap”), so I added in some from my stash. I added the decorative tape, the rhinestones, and the 3×4 cards (decorative fillers from the Project Life Jade edition). The roller coaster stickers were something that came in a giveaway box I received years ago…I never thought I’d use them! I rarely use such themed product, but they were absolutely perfect for the story (in which my screaming on a roller coaster and similar rides figures predominantly. I am NOT a roller coaster fan!). I’d been watching some of Shimelle’s “As it Happens” process videos and they really helped me get over a mental hurdle I had in composing the embellishment clusters.
There is a hidden pocket that opens behind the journaling for the park map.
Again, I’d had the sketch drawn from the (Pagemaps book, page 15), journaling written, and photos printed and waiting, so it was just a matter of constructing the actual layout.
Funny story: it took me a while to actually finish putting the layout together, because I completely ran out of dry adhesive. I scraped by with glossy accents and (gasp!) rolled-up pieces of acid-free cellophane tape! Oh my. There are still loose bits that I will secure once I get my refills… I just couldn’t let a little thing like no adhesive stop me! Haha.
