Caribbean Crawl Layout from El Morro

El Morro
So I am slowly but surely getting my photos from this epic trip documented. We refer to this trip as the "Caribbean Crawl". We started in San Juan and went all the way to Barbados- hitting 16 islands on the way. It was amazing y'all! Anyway- there were so many photos and so much to document that I pushed it aside for a bit.  This was out second day into the trip- we were in San Juan and spent the day exploring El Morro- which is a beautiful fort that looks like a castle. Check it out if you ever have the chance.

Paper Rose dies
I saw this fabulous dies by  Paper Roses at Creativation back in January. I LOVED THEM! They had such an amazing collection of dies and some stamps too.  This set is two different dies (sold individually) and I picked mine up at Scrapbook.com.  The top layer is Quatrefoil Background Layer 1 and the bottom layer is Quatrefoil Background Layer 2.  Now y'all know I am not much of a card maker- but I really wanted to use these dies so I worked them into my scrapbook page.  I used the new Cobalt/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper from Rinea for the bottom layer and Arctic/Gold Glossy Foiled paper or the top layer.

Rinea Foiled Paper
Look how great they look when they are layered together! I love this die y'all! The Cobalt color was perfect for this layout where I wanted to show off the view of the sea.

Travel layout
I adhered it to the background then added my photos and embellishments on top. The sticker here is from forever ago- I am not even sure what company it is from.

Travel blog
Do you use maps and other materials from your travel on your pages? I used the front panel of a handout from the National Parks Service for the title on my page.  I always try to include these kinds of things on my pages.

Be sure to check out the Rinea blog and Facebook page for amazing ideas to spark your creativity.
