We're Cruisin! Paper Trail Blog Hop)

Welcome to this month's Paper Trail Blog Hop! If you're Cruisin' along (wink, wink) you've probably arrived here from Linda's blog. If this is your first stop, don't worry - this hop is circular. Either way we're glad you could join us! This month we are featuring the Cruisin' paper pack.

Here is the layout I created using this fun paper:
I chose to document a sad memory - the closing of one of my hubby's favorite hang outs.

I liked the subtle effect of the patterns just peeking out. (Although I really wanted to use the scrabble and map paper, they just didn't seem to work here.)

I left space for him to journal on the light pattern about what he liked about Clark's. (More likely, I will ask him questions and then record what he says.)

In addition to the Cruisin' papers, I used the coordinating Bottle Caps which were perfect in theme and sentiment for this layout.

I also created a stamped border on the background card stock using my new favorite stamps set - Super Powers.
This skyline stamp caught my eye when the idea book first came out, but I held off since I wasn't sure how often I would use it, or if I would use the other stamps in the set. I was so pleased with the effect on this layout that I think we will all be seeing more of this stamp!

I'm glad you stopped by! Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think before you cruise on along to Mary's blog to see what she created.
