Perfect Day for a Drive

I love road trips, long or short, driver or passenger, it doesn't matter. Cruising along with the windows down and the music turned up can be so freeing. The hubs shares this love and so it's not uncommon for us to just take an afternoon, head out west and enjoy a drive.

I've really been trying to use up my stash and so pulled out the Basic Grey {Carte Postale} papers and stickers I had on hand to go with my photo. The supplies had been on my desk for a couple of weeks and I had a page design in the back of my mind. It all changed when I sat down to work and felt inspired from the last couple of Glitter Girl Adventures where she worked on the top third of her pages. It's a shame that those were the last two, but thankfully Shimelle will continue to be a source of inspiration!

I enjoyed using a variety of supplies and finally tried out an embossing folder that I had picked up with my starter set of goodies for my Big Shot. I also used a couple of dies, some Freckled Fawn washi tape and pearls, and inked the edges of most of the paper elements. I am digging the Jillibean Soup Beanboard Chip Alphas and have a feeling I might be picking up a couple more colors.

Has there been anything you're loving lately, scrapbooking or otherwise?
