Higher Place

Good morning and happy Monday!
I've got another layout to share with you from the July/August issue of Creating Keepsakes!


This layout is in the "Music of Summer" article that features all kinds of music-inspired pages. 
This layout is about a spring break trip my husband took with some friends in college.
"Higher Place" is a Tom Petty song that kind of became the theme song for their trip. 
So it became the title for my layout!

Here's the left side of the 2-page layout...


And here is the right side...


Since this is supposed to be a "manly" layout I tried not to get too fancy with the embellishing!
But I did use some chipboard leaves and brads to add a little interest to the layout. 
And I hand-stitched a border around the title & journaling block. 



Supplies: Patterned paper (Bella Blvd, 7gypsies, Basic Grey), Chipboard (Bella Blvd, Cosmo Cricket), Stickers (Bella Blvd), Die cut photo corners (Sizzix), Brads (Basic Grey)

Have a great day!
