I have to say for this particular layout, I pulled out ALL the pictures!!! It is my "taste of Puerto Rico" page and includes pictures from most of our adventures!
I played around with placement of the photos until I has happy with the flow, and then I started to add embellishments! The bottle of rum, palm tree and the Puerto Rican flag are all from the collection. I felt like I needed a rum drink to properly accent our visit to the Bacardi factory, so I pulled that sticker from the Cruise 2 cardstock stickers. "Destination" is a Fancy Chipboard Word from Want2Scrap and I layered it on top of a tag. Perfect!
|We visited the Bacardi factory and made a trip to Vieques Island for a Biolumenescent Bay tour.|
I should mention that I added foam pop dots behind all of the cardstock stickers because I just love dimension!
|We walked all around El Morro and Old San Juan, enjoyed a zipline tour in the rainforest, and hiked to La Mina Falls.|
There is an excellent title element in the cardstock stickers! All I added were palm leaves die cut from cardstock, foam pop dots and a 3D hibiscus flower. Super easy!
Oh! I almost forgot! There is an unofficial mascot in Puerto Rico, the Coqui. It is a tiny tree frog with a big voice that sings after the sun goes down. There is actually a cardstock sticker of a Coqui in the collection, but I used that on a different layout which you will see later this month. So to pay homage to the little Coqui, and to include that memory on this page, I added a little frog sticker on one of the palm leaves. Can you see him?
Creating this page brought back so many great memories that my husband and I are thinking about another trip! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
