Trekking...

One of my new year's resolutions is to get caught up on the rugrat's scrapbook. He turned three in October, and I am still way back somewhere in June and July! So, I'll be posting a few of these new layouts -- scrapbooking and cardmaking are two different animals that share a lot of traits, so if you are one or the other, I hope you find some inspiration in both kinds of projects.
For this layout, I focused on a day we visited Arches National Park in Utah. It's breathtaking, and it was the little guy's first park adventure. I had a photograph that I was sure I wanted to use as my main picture, and the rest unfolded around it. We usually take a million photos, so the most time-consuming aspect is choosing and printing them to fit the design. I am trying to keep my layouts clean and am employing some journaling, which is new for me. I printed directly onto some vellum, and included a quote from Aristotle: "Adventure is worthwhile." -- I would have to agree with that!

Regina, what a great page! I'm getting ready for a crop end of the month (first time for me -- the planning ahead part, not the going part), and this just may go with me as a sketch idea! TFS!
