A better look at some of the details:
The globe and the black arrow were raised from the layout using pop dots. I used papers from two of BasicGrey's collections on this layout because they worked with the theme and the colors in my photos: Wander (in both 6x6 and 12x12 sizes), and Urban Prairie. I added a bit of Distress Ink to the edges for interest. The chipboard "go" and the letters for "explore" are also from BasicGrey. The "travel" stamp that I used for a journaling block is from Hero Arts and the globe in the title is from Jillibean Soup. The cityscape was cut using my Silhouette machine and I then pieced the windows back in:
I also got a bit of mileage out of some of my StudioAE travel stamps on this layout, as I used them to create some mini flags ("travel" and "sightsee") and collage elements ("destination"-- visible in full layout above).
I loved recalling this very special trip and assembling this layout. Thanks for looking!
