Writing on the Wall

Finished another page for my Peru book last night. Ever getting closer to finishing! Most of the pages I have left are just ones that I want to do to include a few of the scenery pictures we took while we were there. This page is one of those. DH had fun taking shots out of the bus windows as we went around Peru. He caught a few good ones that tell stories of elections and history past. I picked three that I found interested and included them in this page.



For a page that is almost considered a "filler" page I wanted the pictures to still have center stage. What helped me for this layout though was a pretty neat sketch over at Scrap and Stamp Saturday. I found it interesting to have the main elements at an angle. Stamps used are from Autumn Leaves (both the alphabets for the title and the journaling lines). For the ScrapFIT #19 challenge, the challenge was to Use Your Stash - Nothing New. I'm especially trying to do that for my paper...I have WAY too much. And by using my stamps I'm going through many less alphabet stickers (but I like to hoard those anyway...lol!).

Thanks for stopping by!

The colors that you chose go very well with the pictures and I like how you put the pictures at an angle with the paper. The stamped letters keep with the feel of old buildings and blend well with the whole page. Great job!
