Let’s have a look at one more layout from my 2017 album! I was inspired to document a day trip we took to Asheville, NC and decided to share it here with you!
Here is a look at the completed layout for 2017 Week 45.
For this layout I wanted to document a really fun day trip we took last fall to Asheville, NC. Asheville is about 2-3 hours from here, located in the NC mountains. It’s a fun little college town with a very active downtown life and is lots of fun to visit on a Sunday afternoon!
I am working with the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane collection, and am in absolute love with the color palette and the brush stroke icons. I began with my date card, using the rose gold Thickers, wood grain washi tape, and the numbered cardstock stickers.
I cut apart the cut-apart sheet and used those elements as layering pieces across the layout. To add places for journaling I also brought in some white cardstock. I really love white space on my layouts, so the white borders on the photos + the white cardstock provides an excellent unifying element across the pages.
I love simply photographing the kids as they are doing their things! The Children’s Museum had just opened up, so we went there to visit. Our kids have almost outgrown these places, but they were intrigued by the science lab and all participated in making a windmill. Such crafters! I also loved the reflective globe in the reception area, and snapped the photo below. That is me in the coral shirt and Alan peering over my shoulder.
For the right side I made a sequin pocket using the sequins from the Auburn Lane collection, and I have added a few wooden hearts from Felicity Jane. I had more photos from the weekend, including this really awesome blue-toned one of Natalie! The museum had an awesome rock and crystal display and the room was black-lit. That was so much fun to photograph!
The museum had a 3-d printer, and the photo with Alan shows him watching the printer do its thing. It’s so cool to document new technology in these albums. One day we will laugh at that machine!
As I always love to do, I created a journal card with one of the thin washi tapes. It has been layered on white cardstock and then again on the B-side of one of the patterned papers. I have also repeated the pink paper that I used for the date card on the left side.
We also found the city’s best ice cream parlor, and the kids are so cute eating their ice cream and hanging out together! They are such good friends and care about each other so much, and I am eternally happy for them and grateful for our life together.
Let’s move on to the final process video!
