Hi friends! Dana here today sharing a travel layout that features some of the breathtaking photos from a friend's Summer road trip through the Southwest United States. She visited several National Parks and the photos she shared along the way are absolutely stunning. I had a blast living vicariously through her! I'm definitely putting these places on my must-see list. Until I can go to these sites in person, I'm documenting them using the gorgeous Sedona Base Kit. The Sedona kit contains all 6 beautiful 12x12 double-sided patterned papers from Prima Marketing's new Golden Desert collection, many with gorgeous copper foil accents. This kit also contains 2 12x12 double-sided patterned papers from the 49 and Market Vintage Artistry Wedgewood collection, which are the perfect shades of blue to complement the browns and pinks in this kit.
I cut two States from patterned paper, Utah and Colorado, and used them for the base of the title spot. I used the two state shapes as maps to show where the three National Parks visited on this portion of the road trip are located. I printed the locations on the pale blue 49 and Market patterned paper and used Prima copper foil die-cuts as place markers. I cut thin strips of dark blue 49 and Market patterned paper to connect the National Park locations with the corresponding photos on this layout.
The foam stickers, die-cuts, and wood embellishments from the kit were a great way to embellish the photos without distracting from the beautiful scenery.
I embellished the top and bottom edges of the layout with simple patterned paper strips, foiled die-cuts, foam stickers, and Sparkletz gems, which are all included in the kit.
What a fantastic way to unplug from life for awhile! There are more than 400 National Parks in the United States available to everyone, every day. While some of the parks charge an entrance fee, fee-free days provide a great opportunity to visit a new place or an old favorite. I'm so ready for a road trip!
