Life is Full of Ups and Downs

Still working on finishing the old Club Scrap kits. Proud to say I decimated Natural Resources with this layout. Now on to another October kit.

I was inspired by Ali Edwards' Story Stamp layout using tags. I'm just not at that place yet where I can make a no-photo layout. I've been itching to use my new Ellipse dies from Spellbinders and they "sorta" replicate the tag shape so...there you go. Die cut feathers and an arrow from Tim Holtz. Ali Edwards Get Real Story Stamps stamps used to tell my story. Photos taken in the Badlands last year on my South Dakota trip with Mom.

I hope to get to a point where I'm REALLY telling stories with these inspirational stamps but I'll have to work my way there with baby steps. This is just a trip layout. The story here is that we went in and out of the Badlands National Park numerous times on our way to Wounded Knee. Now THAT'S a story!


  1. Very cool layout. I love the repetition of the shape and the paper choices.

  2. Whether you intended the "rear-view mirror" look or not, it really looks like reflections of all the fabulous things you saw on that drive. Your LO is a knockout!
