Joy, Alaska

This layout is from a trip my mom, my husband, and I took when my mom was visiting us while we lived in Alaska.  We went with a tour group up to the Arctic Circle and on the way we stopped in this tiny little town called Joy, Alaska.
This double layout is 12"x12."  The background paper has a woodgrain pattern to it and I just love it!!  I used Extreme Fonts for the title and the text for my little "sign."  I created the "sign" to read exactly what the actual sign on the door of the general store said.  I thought it was hilarious....and very true.
The mountains are from Paper Doll Dress Up and the trees from Plantin Schoolbook.

 The bears are from Campin' Critters and my journaling spot was created from Elegant Edges.
 For the sign, I cut my text out of the green cardstock and matted it with brown cardstock, using the negative images.  I thought it was a pretty cool look.
I added black enamel to the noses of the bears, gave them black pearl eyes and added some yellow Stickles to the badge of the ranger bear.  I also added white enamel to be the "snow" on the mountains and I inked up the forest.  The forest and both bears are adhered with foam tape.  The "sign" is held up with two brads.
