Summer Road Trips

Nothing screams nostalgia as much as a summer road trip. Driving through small towns, and seeing all of the local history and historical buildings-I just love it!

My family just returned from a road trip to South Dakota-a beautiful drive to a very beautiful state. It was a quick trip, but we certainly will return as there is so much to see!

Of course, top on our list was a visit to Mount Rushmore, and this year Mount Rushmore is celebrating its 70th birthday. Its just amazing, and the kids loved hiking around the base seeing the monument from many different perspectives.

To document our visit, I made a layout using the Vintage Camping kit. I just love the colors and textures included in this kit.

This little tag pocket was made using the vintage photo page that is included in the kit. I simply cut it in half (thereby creating 2 pockets) and sealed up the bottom and side with my Scrapbook Adhesives MyStik runner-it really ranks up there with sliced bread! The bottom of the pocket was further trimmed with Tinted Tape Numbers.  I adhered the vintage ledger paper to the tag to create an area for journaling.

For the side of the pocket, I added a row of vintage film (also included in the kit) and black twill for an interesting border. So in cruising the office supply area of my local store, I found a package of clear file folder tabs-how fun are these??? I simply added a tab to the back of the pocket, and punched the date out with my Dymo. I really like how the tab is clear-adding texture but not creating a distraction.

We visited Mount Rushmore on a cloudy day, so this layout needed just a hint of color. To create it, I trimmed the top of the vintage postcard also included in the kit, and used it to edge the top of the pocket.

Linen Tinted Tape adds a subtle decorative touch to the top of the layout. You can really see the texture of the tape against the black cardstock! I used Cut and Paste Alpha Tiles for the title. Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares create the additional dimension on the letters.

Summer goes by so fast, but I hope you get to take a little time away to enjoy it-maybe with  a quick road trip, or a weekend camping.

Also, Happy Flag Day!!!
