Sharing a layout - Throwback Thursday "Italian Gelato" + Scrap Reno Spotlight

Today, I'm sharing a layout from a few years ago about enjoying Italian gelato. The pic of our group is a bit blurry, but I still wanted to document the experience. I can overlook a slightly blurry photo in order to include it on my page. I also included a post card of the little town we stayed in outside of Florence, Montecatini. It's a lovely little place and the location of the gelato photos.

I used a PL style card for the title as well as for the journaling space. It's a great way to use up those supplies, and it gives me a finite space for those items on my page. I'm pretty sure this patterned paper and card combo is from one of the ollections by Simple Stories. I'm not sure why I included the tape measure patterned paper though; that's one of the big mysteries on this page I guess. Haha!

A close-up of the journaling -> let's just say I was keeping it real in this brief description.

To draw attention to the middle of the page, I included a cardstock sticker that I popped up with foam dots. I should've been more careful about covering up the last word of my journaling card, "art," but it's easy to peek underneath and see what it says. I'm not going to worry about it too much.

I like including the date of the photos somewhere on the layout for reference at a later date.

Here's one more look at the finished layout.

Single page layout? Check. Travel photos? Check. Multi-photo page? Check. Color/pattern blocking? Check. PL style card and journaling block? Check. This one is still a winner in my book. :)

Also, I'd love it if you'd check out the story that Stephanie did about my scrapbook renovation over at Paper Crafter's Corner.

Feel free to leave a comment there and to share with your friends who might also need a bit of 'encouragement' or 'motivation' to tackle their own renovation project. :)
