A Layout and a Sketch from Paperhaus Magazine!

Hi there!

I just finished a layout today. It's a picture from the summer of 2001, when my mom and I returned from a cross country trip in my little, red pick-up, from Fairbanks, Alaska, to Montreal, Quebec. 9,700 kilometers in 11 days (plus a few days to visit some friends of mine along the way). My mom had often dreamed about doing that, so it was a perfect opportunity when I had to fly back to Fairbanks to bring back my pick-up. I used to live there but had moved back to Montreal in December 2000. I wasn't going to drive cross country during the winter, so I left it in storage with a friend until the following summer. It was a fun trip back! Lots of beautiful scenery and a good time with my mom!

I used the March 2013 sketch from Paperhaus Magazine's blog.

This is my take on it. I used some pre-embossed Core'dinations cardstock as the base. I combined some old paper with my new Lucille collection from Basic Grey. The blue background paper and the paper embellies are from an American Traditional Designs "Road Trip" paper pack that I've had for a long time. The flowery paper and the alpha stickers are from the Lucille Basic Grey collection. I used some wooden buttons from Prima (LOVE those!) and some chipboard birds colored with Gelatos (finally used them!) I even used my red Gelato to muddy up the pretty Purple Pumpkin fabric button that was perfect for my layout but too pink.

Oh, I added a Bloglovin' button on my sidebar, which is a way to keep track of the blogs you like, as I learned that Google Reader will be "retired" on July 1st. I had seen those pop up on several of the blogs I follow but didn't know why. Now I know... So please follow me on Bloglovin' if you want to stay updated with my scrapping!

Well, that's it for now. Easter break is coming up next week (four days off with the weekend) so hopefully I'll get to scrap a little bit more quickly!

Have a scrappy week!
