Amazing Grand Canyon

We took an awesome road trip for 10 days in the spring of 2015 from Kansas City to Las Vegas.   We took the direct western route going out through the Rockies and then coming home we took the southern route through Arizona and New Mexico and one stop was at the Grand Canyon.    I had already made a lot of layouts from this trip.  But I still have so many pictures and also a lot of memorabilia so I have decided to make more for that trip album as we saw and did so much.

I didn't follow any sketch for this one, just worked on a placement of everything on my own.   But I am getting to enter it in two different challenges.  

"SCRAP OUR STASH"  June Tic-Tac-Toe    I used the left vertical row,  the color red, camera and wood.   Red card stock for the punched border on the left,  red matting on 3 of my quotes on page two, one small picture on left matted in red and I used a red pen for my journaling.   I have 3 wood veneer cameras on 2nd page and I have wood veneer title also for more wood.  I always love doing a tic-tac-toe challenge.   So many choices and ways to go with your layout.

"CHALLENGE YOURSELF"  Challenge #42 is 'Inspired by Art'     To me there is nothing
more beautiful than the beauty of nature and the Grand Canyon surely represents that.
I know beyond stand and staring out into the vastness of it all and looking at the beauty I also managed to take probably close to 100 pictures so I wanted to make the double layout and use more of it and always be able to look back on this album and see the art of nature whenever I want.
Also for the challenge you have to be sure and include a picture of yourself in your layout and I have two pictures of me.
