Take a Hike TN Layout with Simple Stories

Standard

Hello there and happy Wednesday to you all!  Sharing a layout I created for my Travelers Notebook with a special picture of a trip my youngest Son and Hubby took to Philmont Scout Ranch Last summer.  This is their second trip but I don’t have many pictures of them together as my Hubby is usually the one taking pictures. So for this trip they travel by train from Michigan to New Mexico and spend 10 days hiking and camping in the mountains. They hike 100 miles and they love every step!

Of course I’m using Cabin Fever by Simple Stories for this very outdoorsy picture. And my own handwriting which is a big step outside my comfort zone but I’m determined to document these pictures.

I’m kinda obsessed with the tabbed topped labels with perfectly coordinating sentiments for this layout.

Little word stickers here for balance. I added a dash line and a doodle border to help frame the pages. I would never post a layout with pictures of other peoples kids…but sometimes you can’t avoid getting them in the shot so my tip for this is to use cut aparts or stickers to cover them up like I have here with the large explore sentiment.  It looks intentional and removes the child from the image.

I used the Cabin Fever Collection from Simple Stories for this layout .

Wishing all of you a happy and productive day : ) G

  1. Beautiful layout, Ginny! Brings back memories of when my hubby & sons went on BS trips, including Philmont & Sea Base. They had wonderful memories & I had a nice little vacation while they were gone. Lol I guess I should place them into albums. 😬😬
    Thank you for the inspiration!

  2. You’re about the only one I know that could get away with a doily on a decidedly guy project! Plaid works perfectly, too. Nice!
