Mosaic Monday: Travel

IMG_2380

It’s Mosaic Monday! Each Monday I bring you inspiration using the Mosaic Moments system to create fabulous scrapbook pages.

This is one of the pages I created following our recent trip to the Upper Peninsula. Had this not been part of it’s very own book with tons of layouts, I would have journaled on the blue rectangles. However, since this is my fourth layout about this lighthouse, I left it blank and let the photos speak for themselves.

I used a postcard I purchased as one of the photos, matting it just like I did the other large photos. I used scraps to fill in the small squares.

This was probably my favorite evening on our trip — we took shelter from the wind and rain (we were camping in a tent) in a bookstore/coffee house/restaurant. It was quaint and fun and I realized how “old” I have gotten. The 20-year-old me would have thought this stupid and rolled my eyes, but I enjoyed listening to some older folks sing and play instruments and another group play board games. Oh, and the coffee was amazing! We may have been the only two people who didn’t work there who do not qualify for the senior citizen discount, but I felt right at home.

On this page, I turned 1-inch squares to a diamond position to journal on — just something a little different.

When traveling, be sure to take photos of things like rocks, the shoreline, the horizon, leaves or even coffee cups … these become perfect accents for your page when cut into 1-inch squares.
