Hello all! Can you believe that the year 2022 is nearly half over? Time is flying by at breakneck speed, isn’t it? For us here in the desert, things are heating up and Summer temps will be here by the end of May, so I’m preparing myself for the onslaught of Summer. I’m not a lover of the heat, so I won’t be going out as much. Fall and Spring are my favorite months!

Since I’m going to be in hiding soon, I thought my theme of the day would be travel, or destinations. I found so many that it was hard to narrow them down, but here are 6 from different galleries across digi-land. As always, please take some time to give these artists some lovin’ on their pages. They work so hard and it means so much to be noticed!!!

TrishD Some Kind of Wonderful

I was drawn to this page because of the bright contrast of the white building and I had to click to find out more about this building. I didn’t find out about the building, but I was treated to a wonderfully blended page. I like how she made the edges of the photo be as if it were gesso paint. Her title work is beautiful, and the text stamp is perfect for the page.

*gina* Enjoy Every Moment of Your Life

This page by Gina just screams life!! The joy in the pictures, and the beautiful photo treatment makes my heart glad! Her little splashes of paint, the very tasteful elements, and the star of the show, the photos, make this a fantastic page!

Oldenmeade Impressions of Cyprus

What a fantastic way to remember the trip to Cyprus. The sepia and golden colors are perfect for the main photo of the ship, and to blend it into a paint splotch is wonderfully creative. I love the font choice of “Cyprus” and the artfully chosen few photos to tell a story of ancient times. The autumn leaves are a perfect touch – and yes, I spotted that adorable butterfly!

OKate Photography 1

This page is deceptively simple. It may be just one photo, but the angle in which it was taken just draws one into the story. The treatment of high contrast makes it warm and inviting, and the text ghosted around the page is perfect to bring texture into the page. I love the ghosted photo frame as well!

Stormchaser Mesa Arch

What a beautifully scrapped page about our world! The Mesa Arch is a beautiful place and The photo angle was absolutely PERFECT! They captured the scenery in the opening under the arch. The flowers are wonderfully shadowed, and the photos are just enough to show the story. I love the sweet little blue butterfly that ties in the flowers so beautifully! On thing I noticed that maybe others won’t is the rickety ladder. I climbed one of those in Mesa Verde National Park, and I wonder if they had a spot where they climbed one too.

LynnG Route 66

Lynn chose the perfect colored background to showcase these fabulous photos of the famous Route 66! The photos are really fun, and they show the joy of vacation stops! I really like that she left the photos to tell the story, and has just enough elements to complement the photos. I like also how she made the Route 66 photo in the middle look like a stamp!

Well, looks like I’m through living vicariously through all of these amazing layouts! I hope you enjoyed the little trip around the world with me too!

Until next time,
