Scenic Route...

Hello, today I would like to share a page I did for Bird is the Word Scrapbook Challenge Blog. I just fell in love with the sketch by Heather and knew I had just the picture to scrap. My husband and I just got back from Gatlinburg Tennessee. Tennessee is one of my favorite places to go, I just love the mountains and all the waterfalls and streams! 

I chose to challenge myself and reconstruct a pre-made layout. I purchased a book of  pre-made layouts and thought how easy it would be to get my scrapping done in a jiffy. Well I just can't bring myself to use them, so I decided to cut it up and make it my own! The first thing I did was cut out the frame and mounting. I then decided that I needed to trim it up a little more so I took off a bit from all sides. You can see from the picture above how the camera is popping off the mat.

If you look at the page above you can see I used just about the entire page except for the stars. 

I cut out the journal space and used my punch and moved it to the top of the page.

Some embellishments!
