Number of Photos Blog Hop




Hi & welcome to our Number of Photos Blog Hop! We each picked how many photos we wanted to use on our layout. There are 2 people designing for each amount. If you didnt arrive here from Adele's blog,  you can go back to Amanda's blog & start from the beginning.

I picked 2 photos because thats what I primarily use on my layouts. Sometimes I will use 3. I have started to participate in more challenges lately so I decided to use this layout for 2 different challenges & the blog hop.

This layout was created from a sketch at Let's Get Sketchy. I turned the sketch sideways since I was using horizontal photos. The sketch showed using vertical photos. I also changed some of the elements & left some out.

Lets Get Sketchy

The other challenge was from Lasting Memories. They want to see something from your Hometown. My photos are not very exciting or I should say I could have come up with something more monumental of my town. The top photo is one of our historical landmarks though. The rock on the bluff has a Native Indian story. It is called Sugar Loaf. The body of water below is our East Lake. We have 2 small lakes that are called the East & West lake because there is a road that runs between the 2 lakes.


The bottom photo is an area that people sometimes have their Senior/ Graduation pictures taken. There are trails to go hiking on if you go back into the trees more. There is another area that is called Stone Circle where you can sit & have a small fire. I took this photo just to capture the different shape of this tree. We probably should have waited 1 more week & then we could have captured more vibrant color changes on the trees in the bluffs.

Supplies: Brown cardstock, LYB's Hello Fall paper, clear cuts & corrugated shapes, Prima Say It In Pearls centers, Recollections Pearl stickers, My Mind's Eye decorative brads & Basic Grey letter stickers.

Tools: Martha Stewart Traditional Eyelet  Edge Punch

Hope you enjoy the blog hop! Your next stop is Becky.
Happy Scrappin!
