This was our first stop on our trip to Wyoming, and I’m trying to scrap it somewhat chronologically, so it was also my first LO from the trip. I wanted to go through CostCo for the pics, but due to random mishaps, had to use WalMart instead. Oh, ugh. I am not happy with the pics at all. :-/ The color is really bizarre, especially because I restrained myself and didn’t bump the saturation like I am wont to do. Geezalou, what would have happened if I had? Anyway, I digress. I used some 4×6 pics, but also used Picasa to make an 8.5×11 collage, then cut up the individual smaller pictures so I could arrange them how I liked.
There wasn’t enough room to squeeze them all in, so I arranged some extras on half pages that easily slide out the top of the page protector.
And it was a very *plain* layout, even for me (it was hard for me to just let that ticket stub be the title), so I added a scattering of some Architexture tiles Neith RAKed me at least 4 years ago (ridiculous that these were still there, no?). I liked the tone-on-tone with the cardstock, but they still needed some oomph, so I added little bits from a set of 7 Gypsies rub-ons. That worked out well, because I was able to add those to the pull-outs, too, to tie it all together.
