Nothing ever feels as good as home. We took about two weeks and hit the road, venturing to Montana and briefly, Yellowstone. It was a fun family getaway! I’m sure you’ll be seeing a lot of pictures and details later. But because I don’t have any prints back yet, I decided to set to work on this page.
After accidentally stealing one of the hotel keys the first night, I realized that this might be a fun page to use up all those number stickers that plague me. I’m sure I’m not the only who who has an abundance of used alphabet sets with the numbers remaining behind taunting. The grammar rule to spell out any words under then number ten in letters that Mrs. Malcolm firmly beat into our little 7th grade brains will forever haunt me. I simply cannot bring myself to using a number rather than the word if the number is less than ten. I can’t believe that even to this day, Mrs. Malcolm haunts me. Sigh. Why couldn’t it have been one of the nice teachers from Middle School to still linger in my thoughts as I scrap. Oh well. That little complication though often adds to excessive use of letters and an even greater abundance of numbers for me.
Then it hit me, my hotel keys with the room numbers would be great on a page!! So that’s what I did. Because I had so many different patterns going on in the keys, I wanted to keep the page ultra simple.
Supplies: American Crafts (Thickers), Core’dinations paper, October Afternoon (paper), Misc (button, floss, cardstock)
Design Tip: Grid Using a grid creates consistency, definition and an easy to understand visual.
Price Per Page: $$$ ($3-$4 per page) Despite the use of the “left over” numbers, there is still a large quantity of Thickers used on this page and if purchasing the supplies to make this page, it would be costly.
