USA Bound

February 20, 2021

My Dad was stationed in the United States for a period of about 18 months when I was only 8 years old. These pictures show us saying goodbye to our grandmother and also a photo taken on a refuelling stop at Honolulu airport. I cut down a Basic White 12″ x 12″ page and attached it to a Basic Black 12″ x 12″ page (retired). I embossed a strip of Basic White card with one of the Greenery Embossing Folders and attached it to Basic Black card. I attached the embossed panel across the Whisper White card, only using adhesive on the sides and across the bottom edge.

I attached my photos to Basic Black card and positioned them underneath the embossed panel. I cut the title from Basic Black card using the Playful Alphabet Dies and attached them on the left hand side of the page below the embossed panel. I stamped two hibiscus flowers from the Timeless Tropical stamp set onto Basic White card using Flirty Flamingo ink. I stamped three frangipani flowers from the Timeless Tropical stamp set onto Basic White card using So Saffron ink. I coloured the hibiscus flowers using the Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blend and the frangipani flowers using the Dark So Saffron Stampin’ Blend.

I also stamped four leaves from the Timeless Tropical stamp set onto Basic White card using Smoky Slate ink. I coloured the leaves using the Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend. I cut all of the flowers and leaves out using the co-ordinating In The Tropics Dies. I attached some flowers to the top right hand corner of the page and some beside the title. I printed my journaling onto Basic White card and attached it to Basic Black card before attaching to the lower right hand corner of the page. I made the journaling panel a lift up one, so that I could add some more details when I get them from my Dad. I am reminded of so many memories when I look at these photos, which is why I love getting onto pages so that they can be enjoyed by myself and also my family.

Bye for now,

Kris
