Scrapbooking | Houston Space Center 2011

When I got to the photos of our 2011 visit to the Houston Space Center, I happened to have a brand new paper pad on my desk with colors that would work perfect with those photos! However, the theme was vastly different - cooking and recipes (the Ingredient collection from Authentique). 

I ended up using eight of the twenty-four papers in the pad because the "B" sides worked perfectly. Of course, if you turn these layouts over, you'll see aprons and spoons & forks and pigs & cows and flowers.

Since we'd included journaling about this trip on an earlier layout, these simple pages came together quickly. I included additional photos in two 12x12 pocket pages as well.

I even used a few space-themed embellishments that have been in my stash for years!!


  1. I often find the B side of papers are much more suited to my style than the A papers. You had lots of great photos from this visit!

  2. I loved seeing these pages - we have great memories of our visits to JSC.

  3. You have been busy. Great layouts to cover such a fun trip.

  4. I love these pages. I think that I have cycled around back to what I started using when first scrapbooking, i.e., small all-over patterns that are so versatile. I hate to think of all the large scale patterns that I purchased because they are so eye-catching, but then hard to use because they detract from photos. This is such a nice cohesive set of pages, and they patterns work so well with your photos.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
