I was finally able to finish my first project for NSD. I started working on this layout on Saturday. By the evening I was not feeling well — I had caught a cold/flu. My head was so screwed up that I couldn’t focus on anything until Wednesday, when I was at last starting to feel human again.
I made this for the Two Tickets to Paradise challenge, where you are to make a project that represents what paradise is to you. I had these pictures that Erin took during her trip to Palau last year and I figured this has to be as close to paradise as anywhere. Erin not only documents her own travels, but she always has some Disney Duffy bears with her and documents their travels as well.
I had not even heard of Palau until Erin mentioned that it was on her bucket list of places to visit. It is in Micronesia and is famous for its diving. As you can see from the pics, the bears obviously enjoyed their trip.
I think this is my first two-page layout — and it took me a while to figure out where I wanted everything to go. The die cuts are all from Treasure Box Designs – the file is called Two Tickets to Paradise.
The background paper is from the Tahiti stack byDCWV. Most of the solid cardstock is from Bazzill.
I added some Mickey heads to the luggage and put Duffy’s and Shellie May’s names on the tags. I also made sure the bears had round-trip tickets
