I have been in such a card-making frenzy lately so I thought it was time I shared a layout. I am determined to finish scrapping last summer's vacation before we go on vacation this year. Wish me luck on that one. LOL! Anyway, today's layout is based on Nichol Magouirk's Scrapbook Stamping class from March. I love how Nichol uses lots of pictures on her pages and she has inspired me to keep my stamps handy as I work on a page. Here's Nichol's sketch:

And here's a layout of one of my most favorite days from our cruise to New England and Canada:
As you can see, I stretched the sketch to include four small pictures on the top half of the page. I also balanced the circular title mat with a circle for journaling. The bicycle was stamped four times with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig and heat embossed. Since I don't have fringe scissors or a grass punch, I created the grassy border underneath the four small pictures with the help of my Martha Stewart Icicle Punch!

For the title block, I cut the circles using my Spellbinders Nestabilities. After stamping the leaf, I added some of the Basic Grey stickers on foam dimensionals. The leaves from the Basic Grey elements sticker sheet were a perfect fit!

I typed the journaling and ran a piece of patterned paper through my printer. Then I cut the circle using the same Nestabilities. Finally I added the Basic Grey elements sticker as a subtitle. I used element stickers and glazed brads to add more circles and finished off the layout by stitching a border around the top half of my page.

The journaling reads: The Sweetest Memories. It was a 1-mile ride on the scenic carriage roads around Acadia's Eagle Lake and Jordan Pond for Sal, Melissa and me. Add a couple of extra miles for Mark who kept riding ahead and doubling back with words of encouragement for those of us who "lagged" behind. Oh to be 15 and in incredible shape!
