Sharing a layout - You Are Here

Today, I thought I'd share a quick layout with you that I made over the weekend. I found an old snapshot of me and my friends on a school trip to the University of Kentucky back in the '80s. Since I don't remember much about the actual photo, I didn't have a lot to say. I def didn't want to lose the pic, so I decided I'd make a layout about it just for fun.

I started with cardstock which is rare for me these days. I layered on some older patterned paper that I had that kind of has a travel theme; I liked the rather retro looking bus embellishment for example. I also thought the cassette tapes patterned paper was a great match since those were the days of the mix tape, after all. :)

Here's a closeup of my quick and simple journaling.

And here's the layout in its entirety.  I mixed older products with new ones and still maintained the vintage vibe of the layout. Hope you like it!


  1. This is so cute!!!! Very funky and whimsical!

  2. Love how you managed to use older and new goodies.. I am always trying to find ways to use my older stash so I don't feel so guilty!! ♥

  3. i like how you used the retro cassette tapes paper & that van reminds me of the mystery machine van on scooby doo. remember those memorex tapes when we had to tape songs from the radio or record them from another tape, or record album? i guess now they call them vinyl. we're so spoiled now.
