Revisiting our Mt Rushmore trip

This layout came about in such an odd way.    I've had the sketch from Make it Monday #54 at
"THE MEMORY NEST"  since it first appeared on their blog.    I just couldn't figure out what and if I could work with it.   Then yesterday I was shopping at Michaels and saw this package of Heidi
Swapp chipboard frames on clearance and bought a pack because this sketch came immediately to mind.    I haven't ever really used chipboard frames for a picture but now I might be hooked.

I started looking at old vacation albums and I realized I really didn't have that many pages scrapped from our trip to Mount Rushmores back in 2008 so I printed these pictures to use with the sketch.

I'm really pleased when I didn't give up on this sketch because I really like how it turned out.

Here is the sketch below and check out the details for the challenge........ HERE.


  1. I love this layout and what you did with that sketch! It is fantastic! Thanks for playing along with us at The Memory Nest!

  2. Those chipboard frames look quite spectacular, I'm rather envious! And I agree it's a daunting but appealing sketch and gives fabulous results. Thanks for linking up at The Memory Nest.

  3. Fantastic! The layout out is so cool with the frames and how the arrows move your eyes around the layout :) The frames draw you into see each photo too :) Wonderful take on the sketch :)

  4. Barb, this layout it FABULOUS!!! I love how you used the sketch!! the frames and arrows are perfect. And everything pops on the dark background!! Thank you for playing along!!!
