Journey to Ireland & Canada

I published this month's Scraplift Challenge a couple of days ago, and I chose my Olympic Park layout because I wanted to do something similar as the title page for our holiday album this year. We cruised from Liverpool to Canada and Ireland this summer, and I wrote a post about my album preparations yesterday. 

My original page featured an A4 photo, but this one actually has no photo at all. I received a sheet of map paper in my March/April Quirky Kit which I thought would be perfect as part of the title page for this album and which I'm using instead of the photo. I've used tiny brads to mark our port of departure and our seven ports of call and added a ship to the Atlantic Ocean.


I'm basing this album around Heidi Swapp's No Limits collection from which I have the 12x12 paper pad and the wood veneer pieces. I decided that this would be my best chance to use the 'Journey' word so incorporated it in my title. I placed the rest of the wording on a tag to help it stand out from the map paper. It's made for a larger title cluster than on the original page, but there's nothing important on the map paper behind it, and this is a title page after all.

If you'd like to give my Scraplift Challenge a go, I'd love you to join in. Please post your version of my page somewhere online, link back to my blog and link up via the gadget in my sidebar.
