Back to Scrapbooking

lumberjack

I’ve been working on what I love … home decor, upcycling and mixed-media, but I still found time to do what I love most — scrapbooking. Here are a few of the pages I completed from my recent trip to the Upper Peninsula. The page above is of the Lumberjack Tavern in Big Bay, Michigan. This is the site of the murder the story and movie, “Anatomy of a Murder,” was based on. We were the only ones in the bar and the self-proclaimed town drunk, and bartender, filled our heads with all sorts of details about the murder and the filming of the movie. It’s a really cool place — and is currently for sale, if you’re interested in owning a piece of history in a very small town.

camping

I was excited to finally use this paper collection from Bo Bunny … I’ve been holding onto it for at least three years! We camped on the shores of Lake Superior.

trail

Two of the trails we explored … one was all boardwalk. The other was through a sandy woods along the lake. It used to be a beach. There was something really strange about being in a forest and hearing the waves lap along the shore! By the way, if you know what this lichen or fungus or whatever it is in these photos, please tell me. It is beautiful! I spent an hour online, but couldn’t identify it. It seemed to occur only in areas that had recently burned.

sasquatch

A highlight of our trip … this was the cutest Sasquatch I have ever had the privilege to meet. The sculpture was extremely well done.

pottery

We found this pottery in Marquette. I fell in love. We talked to one of the artists for quite some time and she let me take a few photos. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen on a piece of pottery!

flip page

This one uses a flip page from Close to My Heart …

flip flop open

Here’s the open flap. The paper is from a new Bo Bunny collection … I love the foiled vellum deer and bear!
