September's Blog Class - Week 2

Hi Friends! Welcome to week 2 and Layout #2.
Just a reminder that these awesome pages were designed by Lynn Shokoples.

I've been at the Mall of America in Minnesota for Archiver's Scrapfest event
this week and picked up a lil somthin somthin in the air, so imagine my voice as
raspy and stuffy.  ha ha, I just didn't want to suffer alone.

 Again, the original layout above was made by Lynn and has her cute kids at Disney
on it.  LOVE!  The altered layout below has few changes, but they were needed in order
to get one more layout out of the product for next week.  The 2 biggest changes are:
The blue arrow noteworthy piece going up the right side and the BLOSSOMS....
We still don't have those availiable to purchase so I just switched that up a little.
 Reminder: The sizes of the papers you need to cut are on the supply list, 
located in the top right hand corner of the blog.

Lynn distressed most of her edges, and I sanded all of mine, so use your favorite technique and
shabby up all the edges of your pieces.

Start with the Boarding Pass paper as your base. Add the big icon piece to the page.
Cut the points on the end of the long icon piece next and add to page.
Then find and cut out the cream bracket from the cutout page and adhere on right of page.

Next, adhere the backside of the 6 x 9 stripe piece to page.
From the "Home Sweet Hotel" sticker place the 'let's take a trip' sticker
in the bottom left corner. (Using an exacto knife, I cute out the inner bracket,
then used popdots on it and placed it in the center so there was a little dimension.

Adhere adhesive on 3 sides of the Coffee Vintage Dot piece (top, right side and bottom)
and adhere to page.  Place brad of your choice in Travel Log Noteworthy and tuck inside pocket.

For cluster in bottom right corner: 
Using combo sticker alphabet, place your destination on the "My Contact Info" noteworthy and adhere as shown above. Then place Family Trip sticker (from the 'without a map' sticker set) on bottom right corner of photo mat. (I used pop dots on this piece) 
Then from 12 x 12 chipboard and using pop dots adhere sign post to age.
Add layered chipboard piece 'detour' on top of sign post.
Adhere Trinket to chipboard suitcase piece and using pop dots adhere it to bottom right of sign post.

Now go on vacation and add your photo!
How quick and easy was that?  Don't you just love it!!!!???
