Make | 8×8 Layout – Road Trip to CA

8x8 Scrapbook Layout | Road Trip | Blackbird Darlin

This was the first photo I took on our California trip, so I liked the idea of making it be its own layout. Sets the scene and all that. I have a lot of photos from this trip, so most of them will end up in pocket pages…though the arrangement of them is driving me to BLEEERRGG right now.

The title placement bugged me at first (okay, fine, it still does), but I really wanted the geotag to sit above LA, so I decided to just get over it and stick it all down…stickers always feel so intimidating and permanent to me.

On another note, I love the Open Road collection.

    Love this layout! My motto with deciding on placement is “If I don’t decide in 5 minutes, I stick it down.” Scary, I know, but that’s life!
