Jayme Loge here, with some Tuesday with the Team inspiration!
Summer holiday time has arrived, but going anywhere significant does not look likely this year for my family. We may take a few day trips within our province, but that is the extent of what we feel like we can plan. Lucky for me, I was on a trip of a lifetime last summer and have many great memories that need scrapbooking. If this is as close as I get to some travel, then I acknowledge that this is not too shabby an option!
I picked up a bunch of items from Echo Park Paper Co.’s Scenic Route line. They were perfect for scrapbooking photos from my trip to the UK last summer. These layouts cover less than 24 hours of our almost 3 week trip; I think I will need to pick up some more. It’s been a delight pairing my photos and memories with this fun line! I started off using the July 2020 sketch from Creative Scrapbooker, but because I had several photos I wanted to include, I stretched the sketch into a two-page layout. I incorporated some hexagonal details to echo the iconic shape of the basalt stones at the Giant’s Causeway heritage site with a Tim Holtz die and an Indigo Blue stamp. I also scrapbooked some photos that we took at the ‘Layde Church’ ruins. We discovered them quite by accident as we were driving from Belast to the northern coastal area of Ireland. We had picked up the rental car that morning and were stumbling around on the ‘wrong’ side of narrow roads, trying to find our way. A wrong turn brought us to the path to the deserted ruins. It was out of the way, unmonitored and absolutely delightful. It was easy to see why this peaceful little valley became home to a religious retreat. Finally, I had just a few scraps left on the table that I couldn’t bear to leave unused, so I created this quick layout. It is just a photo we took as we traveled the Northern Coast. The sight of sheep grazing by the ocean was beautiful to me. One of the goals I had on this trip was to see if I could find out where in Ireland my maternal grandfather’s family originated. I didn’t solve the mystery, but I certainly did feel the countryside pull at my soul. I’d love to spend more time there. Happy scrapping everyone! Even if you are sticking close to home, I hope you are creating new summertime memories of a lifetime!
