I have more projects to share with you using the January WIP kit. I really adore the combination of the red, black and cream. I thought DH's red shirt plays very well with these papers and embellishments from the kit.
This second layout is a little info about Franklin Court in Philadelphia. I started scrapbooking to document the photos I take on trips. In my opinion, travel photos are the most difficult photos to scrap... I mean if I take a picture of a scenery, exactly which part can I trim out? Yeah... One thing to "combat" that is to print them into smaller photos, even then, I think they are more challenging to scrap.
However, I'm always happy with layouts like this one. I went on the trip, I took the pictures to remember, I have journaling, and the design isn't half bad. This is a huge part of me as a scrapbooker: long before it was a creative hobby or an artistic endeavor, it was about 'what, when, and why the photos...'
I love scrapbooking!
