Up High

I'm back today with another scrapbook layout.
These pictures were taken at the top of the CN Tower - way up high. Deciding that we needed to show the girls some of the world famous sites in our own backyard, we visited here back in May.

The pictures themselves are not the greatest - but the memories sure are.
All the colors and patterns in our clothes made choosing paper a little difficult. In the end I decided on the Perfect Vacation line by American Crafts. I layered my papers and kept the overall design simple.

I am very happy with this layout and think the papers coordinate quite well despite all the competing colors and patterns in the pictures. While working on this layout, I remembered a tip I once read in a travel scrapbooking magazine - pack all coordinating outfits for your family so that selecting paper for your layouts is simpler; at the time that seemed a little insane to me, but maybe there is something to it since it took me ages to find the right paper for these mishmash photos.

I hope you are getting some scrapping done. The weather here is getting cooler and more conducive to getting onto my pajamas early in the evening and crafting....a wonderful side effect of autumn and the coming winter.
