Tahquamenon Fall - Michigan


This last week I spend a lot of time on layouts finishing up this layouts for the road trip we took from Missouri to the upper peninsula of Michigan back in July 2014.   I had made a lot, but I found a file folder with some memorabilia I had saved from the trip.   So I went back thru my pictures and made some more layouts.   I even have some more to make.   This trip album is going to be nice and full.

For this layout, I used the sketch at  "THROUGH THE EYES OF ROCHELLE SPEARS"   The sketch for April is a page maps sketch (see below) and it worked out great to use these 3 pictures of the falls and some info cut out of a travel magazine about the area and had this information of just where we went.
It was so beautiful there and we walked and saw the upper and lower falls.

I was also inspired by the Photo Inspiration (see below)  at  the  "GRAND DIVA'S CREATIVE CORNER"  so by using it I'm entered twice with the scrappy friends challenge.     I was inspired by the  yellow color of the sun and I used yellow for the top patterned paper in my layout.   I was also inspired by all the colors in the photo inspiration and that is picked up in the bottom third of the layout and that patterned paper.   I also picked that paper because of the trees in it and to pull the trees that are also in the photo.


Here are the links for both challenges.
