Expedition Destination

For the first time ever, I am going to try focusing on starting and finishing a complete album. I really want to scrapbook the trip that I went on with Jason and David. This is something that I will remember and cherish forever. The book I am making is for Jason, so that he will have a keepsake for his very first trip that he saved and paid for himself.

This layout was inspired by a sketch from Sketch Support that was created by Allison Davis.  I used a new collection from Reminisce called Expedition Destination.  It is a perfect travel themed line that will work for any trip or destination.

The title was cut out from one of the papers and then I added stitching to make it really pop!

Pennants are really popular on layouts and cards so I carried that theme on to my second page, adding a bit of stitching for some dimension.  I also cut out this compass from the papers and embellished it with some heavy twine.

My photos were taken while we were driving in the car. The trip up the coast is very scenic, especially as you approach Malibu. David had the camera and was snapping photos along the way. He even managed to get photos of himself and Jason in the side mirror of the car. I couldn't resist added these to the page.
