Kicking Horse (layout #27)

This was a trip I went on BK (Before Kids), so it must have been 2001 or something. I went white water rafting with a group of people I didn't really know. I've had the pictures forever, but I didn't really know what to do with them. There were so many, I wanted to include a whole bunch, but not do more than one layout. Then along came the Close to My Heart Flip Flap Memory Protectors. These are 4x6 pockets with their own adhesive flap, and I just stuck 2 of them right on top of my page protector. So this layout has 11 4x6 photos! How cool is that? (I apologize for the glare, but I had to keep the pages in their protectors so you could see how the flip flaps work.)

For this one, I used a page design from the Creating Keepsakes May/June 2010 edition and colours from last week's Design Dollies colour challenge (pink, orange, and cream). We went away this weekend, though, and I didn't get it posted in time. I wanted orange letters for my title, but didn't have stickers, so I embossed them with clear embossing powder and then cut them out with a craft knife. I really like how they turned out! I also stitched my ribbon on with my sewing machine - that is so much fun!

Supplies (all CTMH): Hollyhock and Colonial White cardstock, patterned paper (pink) from Boom-di-Ada Level 2 paper pack, Giggle Caps My Acrylix stamp set, Flip Flap Memory Protectors

Other: American Traditional Designs patterned paper, Versamark ink, Creative Memories pen, unknown clear embossing powder, ribbon, and orange patterned paper
