Sarsparilla Class Layout

On to the next one! I quite enjoy planning class for our scrapbook group, it's kinda like a puzzle, what to do here, what goes there. I also like to do different layouts for different papers, case in point, our next class I used Close to my Heart Sarsaparilla paper pack. Sarsaparilla has some great cowboy elements, I tend to like the flourished that are through out the papers.
This layout if from the CTMH layout book called Imagine. The name of the layout is Role Play and it boasts 8 photographs. I actually had a hard time finding my event that had 8+ pictures in it. But once I found it, everything fell into place. We ended up going to Evans Mountain in Colorado which, I believe, had the highest point in the Rockies that you could drive up to. This river area was near the top. I did happen to get some great pictures of our little trip and loved the way they play with the paper.
To keep with the 'natural' photos and theme I added these great twill ribbons to lighten and add some horizontal lines to the page.
I was looking for something fun to put on the page to capture the eye. I have the matching CTMH Acrylix Stamp called 'Western Flourishes' and stamps those great stamps in some of the white space.
Next I broke out the Cricut and cut a fun title from the Country Life Cartridge and chose 'Cool, Clean Water', to reflect the water in the pictures. I really like the way the layout turned out, of course after the class is done I will add some extra embellishment to make this layout uniquely mine.
