I really wanted the pictures to POP, since they were the main attraction of the layout.
Since I don't have a 12x12 printer, I cut a 12x4 piece of Kraft and printed my journaling on that and then trimmed it down to fit in the space to the left.
The "Passenger Ticket" was a Maya Road Kraft ticket. Since it was the same color as the background, it didn't stand out very much. I needed another pop of red, so I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist. The chipboard letters were also kraft colored, so I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist too for the perfect match.
The small flag pick I made myself. I found a flag image and printed it out on light weight paper. I wrapped it around a toothpick and tied ribbon around it.
The last small detail was the hand drawn line around the edge of the layout. It just added a little something to hold it all together. I fit 12 photos on here and they were all originally 4x6 photos with all of them trimmed slightly. I had too many pictures I wanted to use, which happens a lot. :)
I will share another layout tomorrow. Have a good Saturday, and stay warm!
