Yet another layout of some pictures from my high school trip to Sweden. I am bound and determined to get this album done. It works out so well when I can create something for the album to meet a challenge or two, like this layout. It is a 12"x12" layout. The background cardstock is from K&Company and I thought it was perfect with those little bikes on it (they are kind of hard to see though - just take my word for it). I cut a piece of shimmery orange cardstock at 6 3/4"x8" and a piece of ivory cardstock at 6 3/4"x7." I adhered them together and then adhered them to the page. I added the picture and the bus pass. I then used Going Places to cut out the bus and the bike, using the regular and shadow features on both. The bus is cut at 2" and the bike is cut at 1 1/2." I used Don Juan for the title, it is the under pressure creative feature. It is cut at 1 1/4." I then attached all my cuts and added some faux stitching to the title. I finished it all off with the journaling.

I made this page following the sketch at Papercraft Star. I also made it to meet the challenge at My Sheri Crafts. The challenge there is "transportation." I thought a bike and a bus met that, plus that WAS my transportation in Sweden (for the most part).
