Scrapbook Layout: "just relax"
This page started with an older photo I have from the beach when Ryan and I went over Spring Break for a day. It was just a random photo with no specific "story", but it was pretty and I wanted to scrap it! The patterned paper (from Recollections) reminded me of beach towels. I'm not sure if you can tell in the photo, but they have a subtle texture to them. So I laid them out like towels on the beach! I was kind of stuck about how to do the journaling, but with some help from the ladies at Two Peas, I decided to break out my old typewriter (an electric, not a pretty vintage one, unfortunately) and journal on these little kraft paper strips. I love how it came out! If anyone can identify these letter stickers, please let me know! I picked up the nearly-full sheets on a trip to Scrap for $0.75 but they don't have any kind of brand or name on them. Anyway, I really like them, and they matched this page perfectly! The location was actually a big part of the memory, because it was nice to visit Crystal Beach again with Ryan. This is the beach I've been going to since I was a little kid, because my grandparents had a beach house there (before Hurricane Ike washed it away, at least). So I included a little strip with that down here, under the photo. And that's it for now! Thanks for taking a look! xoxo Emily
