Scrapbook Pages

So I am finally getting back to work on scrapbook pages! Can we believe it?! I did this 2-page layout of our honeymoon trip to Italy. This is going to be the start of the book, it shows the best pictures of the two of us with some of the most notable sights to see. We didn't get a ton of photo ops with both of us together - you have to be really careful who you give your camera to - so I thought that would be a great way to start the memories.

Here's the left side of the layout, I did the title on the computer. The colors for this layout are a dark brown and a very light blue. The patterned paper is from Hobby Lobby, the cardstock is Stampin' Up White, Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip. For those who are interested, the top pic is looking down on the Roman Forum (DH was just fascinated with this area - if/when we go back he wants to spend more time here, there is so much to see). The second one is taken in Siena. Oh we just *loved* Siena!!

On the right the second page of the layout. I stamped on some window sheets and laid them over the photos to give a little extra to them. Unfortunately that makes them very hard to photograph a second time and they look all yellow. Bleah. But you get the point of the layout and rest assured the photos don't look THAT bad in person! I used White and Timber Brown StazOn ink for the overlays. The first photo has white swirls from Rhona Farrar/Autumn Leaves, the second is the word "Roma" using the LizzieBelle Alphabet set from Purple Onion Designs, and the last one has the word Journey from the "Cool Dude" set at FireCracker Designs by Pamela. The tags inside the little envelopes pull out for journaling. The photos are (top to bottom) the Spanish Steps, the Coliseum in Rome, and Pisa.
