|With my personal photos.|
|The white photo mats are not included in the kit, but are meant to represent a suggested photo layout.|
|The title was inspired by the Cricut Nifty Fifties cartridge, with the asterisks being cut from it.|
I have to tell you, I struggled with this layout. I've worked on this layout for the past three days. Well...not really days, but rather evenings...after work. I think I struggled, because normally when I make layouts for my workshops, I start with the Workshop-on-the-Go layout and then generally make my second layout without having photos in mind, so I'm more free to design without constraints. However, the first time I saw this paper pack, I instantly knew that it would be a perfect fit for the photos I had of part of our trip to Dollywood in 2002. (Yes. I'm behind.) I spent the first afternoon surfing the internet looking for sketches and layout ideas. I just needed some spark. After a while, I found this layout at one of my favorite sites, Scrapbook Genrations.
I'll work on the second one this weekend and post it as soon as it is done. :)
Since the pages are dimensional, my scanner casts shadows and creates blurry spots. Here are some close-ups to show you the details.
