I was gathering my latest layouts to post them here, and suddenly I realized that they are all from the desert. Methinks my brain is telling me we need another Southwest vacation soon… :D The first three are for Cathy Zielske’s Design Your Life class – most of the assignments are perfect for hiking layouts because there’s room for so many photos while still maintaining a good focal point. Now that’s my kind of scrapbooking!
This one happened because a) I had some leftover photos from our two trips to Zion that I wanted to use, and b) because I wanted to put them in our Places We Go album. There are plenty of layouts from Zion in my old 11×8.5 hiking album and in the Southwest Road Trip album, but nothing in my main albums. Since Zion is our favorite National Park (so far – I have high hopes for Yosemite!), it needed some lovin’ there.
Egads – no patterned paper! Can’t remember the last time I did that.
I never thought I would end up scrapbooking this photo of me looking, ehm, FLABulous and overheated in a COWBOY HAT, but it really does the job of conveying the absolute horribleness of being out of shape and running out of water on the way out of a canyon. So here you go:
This one is a non-Cathy layout from Havasu Falls. Yeah, we’re pretty much going to have to go back there as well. Hopefully it will be back to its beautiful self once it gets cleaned up from the flash flood. The chipboard tree and leaves are from the same CK Kit of the Month as those transparent elements I love so much.
I am still sick (and tomorrow JK is going hiking without me – hrmf), but we had a good Thanksgiving anyway. We made a tasty little feast (including the yam soufflé I’ve been dreaming about since last year) and snuggled up together on the couch with Bobby to watch Dan in Real Life. Love that movie. I hope you all had a great long weekend with your friends and families!
