Project PageMaps 1-8

It's Wednesday already? My how time is just flying by this week. That's okay because the faster time goes the faster I will be visiting my dear friend Beth!!

This week for Project PageMaps I worked from the first book, eighth sketch. You can find the sketch on page 22. This week the sketch was a 7-photo 8 1/2 x 11 double layout. HHHMMmmmm, doesn't work so much for me. So, I totally modified it to suit me. That's one of the great things I love about sketches, you can either follow it exactly or just use it as a jumping off point. Here's what I did with it,

I pretty much stuck to the right side of the layout and just tweaked it a touch. These pictures are from a Harley Road Trip that Rick in I took in 2009. We stopped at a lookout point called Goat Lick. We were able to see some of the goats that live there, super cool. Even though these pictures were not taken in the fall, I wanted to play up on the orange tones in the tree and on my scarf. I kept wanting to add something to the top right corner of the page but nothing looked right I left it alone.

I'm really enjoying this project and it's so fun to see my scrapbook filling up! The next sketch is a 12x12 double 7-photo layout. I'll be honest, I'm not a huge double layout fan for my scrapbooks. But, like this week, I'll think of a way to modify it.

I'll be back on friday with a project for Challenge 36 at Papercraft Star!

Have a great day!!
