Happy Monday everyone. Dorlene here to share a layout I created using the Far and Away collection.

My mom, sister and I went on a road trip to Tucson, Arizona earlier this year and I wanted to showcase the difference in the landscape between the two states...from California poppies to Arizona Saguaros...both beautiful!

The first thing I did was sort through the Far and Away papers to select a base page. Then I cut down a piece of the border strip paper to create a large bottom border. I love using these multiple border strip sheets since they give the look of multiple layers without all the cutting and extra work.

Each piece of paper was inked around the edges with either Deep Sea, Bermuda or Tropical Punch PowderPuff Chalk Inks.

The chipboard words were part of an earlier Club Q kit and fit perfectly with this layout. I inked "life" and "good" in Deep Sea and "is" with Bermuda.

This was a pretty simple layout, so to add some pizzazz, I used a splatter background stamp with Bermuda PowderPuff Chalk Ink and other travel/adventure stamps with Tropical Punch and Sandy Shore PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

It was a great trip with two of my favorite ladies!
