Title - An Evening With Dick Van Dyke
Layout Inspiration - Story
Design Inspiration - Page Kit
A couple of years ago we enjoyed a fun evening out in Dallas, listening to Dick Van Dyke sing and tell stories as part of a quartet called the Vantastix. One of the members of the group shared the story about how they all got together, and that story became the basis for my layout.
When I attended the Scrapbook Expo back in February, my friend Amy gave me one of the page kits she received because she was attending and cropping at the event for the entire weekend. I decided to use the papers from that kit for this layout. Originally I thought I would create a one-page layout, but since the journaling block containing the story was pretty large and I wanted to include several photos plus the tickets and the envelope they came in, I decided a two-page layout would work best.
Here's a closer look at the story that inspired this layout. (Remember you can click on the photo for a larger version.)
Do you often have large blocks of journaling? How do you fit it into the design of your layout?
