Hi! It's Katie Scott and I've just returned from a colorful week in Washington DC. I took 1,875 photos on our trip. I don't expect to scrapbook or even print most of the photos. When scrapbooking a trip, I try to think of the story I want to tell first and then select the photos. Here, I am telling the story of our last walk through our neighborhood, Capitol Hill Historic District, which was alive with fall color.

12x12 / Materials: patterned paper (Allison Kreft) + chipboard (Crate Paper) + wood veneers (Crate Paper, Studio Calico) + journaling card (Studio Calico) + paper die cut embellishments (Amy Tangerine, Crate Paper) + stickers (Amy Tangerine) + glitter stickers (KI) + mists (Heidi Swapp, Studio Calico) + letter stickers (Basic Grey).
If you'd like to create a layout like this: 1. Choose a group of photos and print them out in a collage with a white border. I used Google's Picasa program to make the collage. 2. Pick a neutral background paper. 3. Use whatever is out and on your desk to embellish in a downward diagonal.
I really did just use what was out and on my scrapbooking desk to create this layout. If you'd like to see how I made it, you can watch my real time scrapbook video on You Tube:
If you do make a layout inspired by mine, please leave a comment and a link - we'd love to see what you've created!
