Looking for Adventure

One of my favorite pages from the Album Retreat is 'Looking for Adventure' which includes a photo of my husband on his month-long bicycle ride from California to Florida along with some of my son and grandson's adventures. 
Looking for Adventure
The color scheme for this layout really appeals to me and goes so well with outdoor/nature photos.   

Looking for Adventure (left page)
Patterned paper from the ProPlayer kit is combined with stamped images from Geometric Backgrounds and the My Life stamp set, which is included in the Artbooking Bundle.  

Looking for Adventure (right page)
Included on these two pages are a few pieces of patterned paper which you may not recognize from a CTMH kit.  These are from the My Crush Best Day Ever Assortment and are a great way to include some additional variety to your scrapbook pages and cards.  Even though each assortment is designed to be used with the My Crush books, they use  CTMH Exclusive Colors and coordinate well with other Close To My Heart products.  Four different assortments are available, and each includes more than 20 4"x4" double-sided pieces for only $4.95.  The letter stickers spelling 'looking for' are also from the same Best Day Ever Assortment.        

All of the pages for the Album Retreat were designed by the CTMH Art Department and include multiple cuts from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge as well as papers from different CTMH kits with a mixture of embellishments and stamp sets.  Even though each page is very detailed, it was fun and challenging to create each of them.  Click on any of the photos for an enlarged view. 

Be sure to follow my blog to see all of the completed pages which I will be sharing throughout the month of November. 

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

  1. I love the color combo in this page too! Shades of blues and greens with browns. Heavenly!

    California to Florida on a BIKE? Holy cow!
