Grand Oaks

For our Branson trip, I only took two photos of our hotel room. Normally, I take a lot more photos of where we stay (because I’m a scrapbooker, of course!), but there wasn’t a whole lot to our room. The best part was the giant tub so I made sure to get a picture of that.

Having only two photos worked out, because I paired it with a lot of journaling. I journaled about the hotel room and about the trip package we had. I doubled matted the journaling card with paper that matched the background paper.

I used silver stickers to make the title, but I thought it didn’t stand out enough. I tried around the letters with a black Sharpie pen to fix that.

Background paper and green mat paper from DCWV’S The Stack 5, yellow mat paper by Me & My Big Ideas, letter stickers from Michael’s.

Uptown Cafe

After our very long road trip to get to Missouri, we checked into our hotel and then drove close by to get something to eat at the Uptown Cafe.

Outside of the Cafe was a yellow taxi, and I based my page around that yellow color and the teal of my outfit. The Martha yellow bubbles paper was great for this, and I used fuzzy teal letters with it.

Obviously, everything is better with Washi tape so I added some Washi on the top and bottom, and put it on top of the images.

I matted the photos with blue paper and the two colors really came together through out the page.

Paper by Martha, mat paper by Recollections, Washi tape is Recollections brand, journaling done on free download card, rub on letters by Zipatone, fuzzy letter stickers by MakingMemories.
