I will need to make a lot of pages with 4x6 photos for my cruise album, so I've been bookmarking suitable sketches when I see them but don't have enough time to use them immediately. This page is based on one of the September sketches from ScrapMuch?

It also incorporates this month's Stash Challenge from Scrap Our Stash, one to create a layout using stash items for each of the letters of the word INKS. Mine are Inked edges, Notebook border and No Limits paper, the title Killybegs, Star Sticker and Stamping.

I used two photos of the town of Killybegs in the Republic of Ireland, the first stop on our cruise. The top one is the view from our ship's berth; the bottom one is a view across the bay as we walked into town.

I'm planning to make introductory pages like this for each of the towns/cities that we visited, to act as dividers in the album and to make it clear where each set of photos were taken. The stamped circle on the right isn't very clear, but it reads 'Entry Date'. I'll repeat this on each introductory page, and then I won't need to date all the intervening pages too.

  8. Oh this look great - and kudos on meeting the challenge. It is always fun to scrap 4 x 6 travel photos - I might have to use your idea of bookmarking appropriate sketches too - so I can add some 12 x 12 full pages in with my pocket pages.
