2013: Road Trip: Kansas
This is the last spread in our road trip across the United States. By this point I had been driving for 4 days and I was pretty exhausted. I was forgetting to take pictures, and frankly there wasn’t too much to take pictures of in Kansas anyway!
But I did remember to take a picture at the Welcome Center at the border of Kansas, and the attendants inside gave me a packet of sunflower seeds! So that was about all I had to put in the scrapbook.
I was trying to figure out what I was going to do with this spread when I discovered this wonderful sunflower background paper and just decided that this whole spread would be themed in yellow. Don’t be afraid to use a full page picture like this, especially if it helps to drive home the point of your theme.
On the right hand page I attempted to create a feel of a basket which also served as a holder for the Kansas map. I put the entire packet of sunflower seeds (including the seeds!) on the page and glued them down. They are now in Sweden so I hope that I didn’t break any international laws about seeds!
Scrapbooking tip: Welcome Centers and rest stops often have free maps of their state and local area. So they make nice free ephemera for your scrapbook, and serve as an educational tool for others who are viewing your scrapbooks.
