Mackinaw Island hotel



This was a first for me.   I used two totally different sketch challenges and put them together to make a double page layout.    I knew I wanted to scrap all these pictures but wanted to be able to enter challenges too and not just make my own design for a double.
So I started looking thru the sketches I had printed to work on for challenges this month and came up with these two that would work out for the layout of the picture I had.   Even though the two sketches didn't have the same type of elements to them.    I used matching background paper and then matching patterned paper and card stock mat colors to tie it all together.

We had an awesome huge waterfront room when we stayed in Mackinaw Island for 3 nights so wanted to get these pictures saved on layouts.

For the page on the left with the interior room pictures.   I used the Flashback Friday sketch #197
at   "SCRAPBOOK CHALLENGES'     then for the right side page and two exterior pictures I used
the Sketchy Friday sketch from 3-11-16 at   "SCRAP MUCH?"
