2 Broke Girls Sketch #23: A Travel Themed Album in the works!!!!

Hey there gang!!!  It's that time again for another wonderful weekly sketch from 2 Broke Girls Scraps!!!! 

(If you're here for the GIVEAWAY, click HERE!!!)

"The Trouble Found Me" with Heidi Swapp "No Limits" Paper Line
Here is this week's sketch:

And here is my page:

My family and I went on a cruise back in April and stopped at Grand Cayman along the way.  There is a town there that is actually called "Hell"!!!! Literally!!!!  We sent post cards to our friends and family while we were there so they would receive cards from us postmarked from"Hell"!!! Hahahaha!!!!  I have to admit... There are many places that are on my to-do list but this was certainly a surprise!!!!! 

Any who... about the sketch:  I turned the sketch a quarter turn clockwise to accommodate my photos and then went to work!!!  
I am making an album of this trip for my Father and Stepmom as a Christmas gift and chose to use the Heidi Swapp No Limits" paper line because it is absolutely AMAZING!!!!!  There are soooo many different cut-outs and pieces to make your own embellies with!!!!  The "title" piece was cut from the paper pad, and the chipboard arrow is also by the Heidi Swapp line and was colored with a Spectrum Noir alcohol marker.  I added some various embellies from The Little Yellow Bicycle, Recollections, and some Tim Holtz metal and rub-ons to complete the look!!!  

"Top Ten" with Heidi Swapp "No Limits" Paper Line
I have completed another page for this album using the Sketch N Scrap Sketch #42 and the same paper line!!!  Here's a look at the sketch:

I changed this one around a bit... Here's what I've come up with:

See what I mean?!?  Isn't this paper AMAZING!?!?  I LOVE it!!!! Of course, I pretty much LOVE anything Heidi Swapp!!!! 
I swapped the order of the sketch, putting the top on the bottom and vice versa, but kept the layout on each part the same.  Make sense?!?  Again, most of the embellies were cut from various pattern papers including the chevrons, tags, and compass.  The coordinating letters that come with the paper pad are teal and dark blue but I wanted to change them a bit so for the word "Cayman", I added a bit of distress ink to match the colors of the page.  I added some wooden stars from Recollections, also colored, another "colorable" arrow that was inked with Evergreen Borough Distress ink, a little glitter glue, and twine.  That's it!!!! Another fabulous page created using almost ONLY papers from the collection!!!!  

Well gang... Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)
