Take Out Tuesday : 5.31.11

Today’s Take Out Tuesday is all about making that stack of event photos you have hanging out on your table just a bit smaller.  This two page layout uses six photos and has plenty of room for journaling to insure you get your story told.
Ironically, my event photos are from last year’s Bratfest – and I just attended this year’s event yesterday.  Bratfest is a bit hard to explain because you think about it, it’s a bit ridiculous.  Basically it’s four days where people come to enjoy eating bratwurst, hear live music and perhaps enjoy a few carnival rides.  It’s a spectacle, but it’s for charity.  And my husband happens to think it’s the greatest event ever.
LEFT PAGE | On this page, I used two tags simply as placeholders and design elements and used the third to actually contain information, in this case, the date.  I love how versatile these tags are and never take away from your personal style but instead always seem to add to it.
RIGHT PAGE | I’ve become a big fan of the Handmade Layers Large Journaling Tags.  After this page, my love for them has grown even larger.  I had this small Journaling Tag strip leftover from a previous project and it worked perfectly here to contain my title.  By cutting a notch from the right hand side of the strip, it looks more like an embellishment rather than an afterthought.
Other product used : Studio Calico’s Metropolitan kit.
