Hi Fellow Scrapbookers!
Today I am bringing you a layout featuring some of October afternoon’s Travel girl collection. I Have been going through some old photos as of late and I had always been frozen by the idea of needing to scrapbook chronologically. Because of this I didn’t get much scrapbooking done, especially for my two boys who in this layout were 4 and 5 but now are 13 and 14. I finally gave myself permission to scrapbook photos that spoke to me in that moment. I can always arrange the pages in albums in whatever order they need to be later. If you have that holding you back too, let yourself scrapbook something from yesterday or 5 years ago, whatever story you want to tell today, tell it.
Enough of my pep-talk… I absolutely LOVE the Travel Girl Collection that October Afternoon created. Even with the softer colors I still thought that it would make a great first flight layout for my boys. Here is the finished layout;the retro feel of the collection is so fun! I used some American Crafts foam thickers for the “Let’s Go” title and the rest of the embellishments are from the OA Travel Girl collection.
There are all sorts of fun Travel girl items in the Whimsical Twist shop right now. Click HERE to see all sorts of adorable pieces from the collection! Make sure you also check out all of the wonderful pre-orders that just went up in the shop!
