Cruise Pictures - Mexico

This is the last of the pages I have completed, so I'm going to have to get to work and do some more.

For this layout, I borrowed photos from the Internet again and used my Silhouette software to create a photo collage.  I learned this trick from one of my Silhouette gurus, Lisa G who has posted some great Silhouette video tutorials.  (Click on her name above to go to the video) The software allows me to size my photos however I want and print them all as a group or singly - whichever I choose.

My title was also die cut using the Silhouette.  I downloaded a free font from the Internet (Taco Modern) and used the node editing feature of the software to remove some of the tiny details that would have been too small to cut well.  I backed my title with black cardstock and added some brads as an accent.  I didn't have the color I wanted for my brads, so I used white ones, colored them with a Sharpie marker and then used clear embossing powder to seal the color.

I added a charm from The Girls' Paperie (got this in a kit from Tuesday Morning with TONS of other stuff), a flower from Sassafras and some stickers from October Afternoon.  The patterned paper is from Basic Grey, and the journaling sticker is from Colorbok.
