I haven't made any cards this week, but over on the PTI forum we've been discussing scrapbooking so I decided to share some pages I made from my FL trip last year. I'm not much of a journaler, I just try to make the pages look pretty. I may have to go back and add some details later.

This is the first page of my album. The flash sort of overtook the picture--there is a sailboat behind us and it's just after sunset at Mallory Square in Key West. I found all of the fun metal charms and the sea-themed paper at Red Lead Paperworks.

Here is a close up the Florida tags. I used Distress Inks and stamped various images for the backgrounds, then for the letters I used a fun alphabet set called Cowboy's Ransom and popped them up on dimensionals.

Next is a page from our stop in Jupiter to see the Cardinals play a spring training game. It was a beautiful (but hot) day and I loved Roger Dean Stadium. You can get so close to the players/field it's a really great experience--even though we lost that day. I {heart} my St. Louis Cardinals.

The last page is from our time in Key West. It has photos of several things I loved about being there, including the chickens. I painted the chipboard letters with acrylic paints to match the theme of the tropical fish paper.

I have never been to a more laid back place where everyone gets along because they're all there for one thing--to relax and enjoy themselves. (I don't think there's a place in KW that you can't wear flip-flops to.) I definitely would like to go back there again.

Thanks for looking. I hope you enjoyed the peek at my Florida trip. I have a lot more pictures to scrap to finish the book, but who knows when I'll actually get to working on them.
