Cali Anniversary Trip Layout

I am a Design Team Member at Let's Scrap and today starts a new sketch challenge.  I just want to say that being on this Design Team I have scrapped a ton of layouts that go right in my scrapbooks!  If you are trying to get or stay on top of your scrapbooking, consider joining us for our weekly sketch challenges - you could also win some great prizes!

I took several pictures in California on our 22nd Anniversary Trip in September.  We went to Disneyland, Sea World and the San Diego Zoo - without the kids!  I used my cell phone to take the pictures, and my Zink Happy to print them off.  The widest the pictures print on the Zink is 2 inches, so these photos were perfect for this week's sketch!
I had too many photos that I wanted on my layout, so I adjusted the sketch to accommodate!  That is the beauty of sketches - they are flexible!

I used Dylusions Ink Dirty Martini and Heidi Swapp Teal Color Shine to ink some white cardstock.  I trimmed these papers to 7 x 9 to mat the photo collages.  I used black cardstock to mat them and adhere them to my Heidi Swapp and Glitz Designs papers.
I used Beacon Quick Grip Permanent Adhesive to glue the lace trim and flowers to my layout.  The lace ribbon was curling and I needed a glue to grab it quick - this worked perfectly!!   
I tucked in a few flowers and some journaling.
I used my Silhouette Cameo for my titles.  I used muted colors in the background because my photos were pretty busy.  I like how it turned out!!

Come check out our new BLOG (we just moved from our ning site this month)!!  We have members from all over the world!!
