Sunset on the Island Layout

Last month I got to take a vacation with my sister to visit my grandparents in one of my very favorite places in the US: St. Simon's Island, Georgia.  I got to relax a lot, make some lovely memories, and of course I spent a little time photographing the beauty of the island.  Today I have a 2 page layout of photos I took during a sunset walk.  This is Sunset on the Island:

Echo Park's Summer Adventure came into A Walk Down Memory Lane about the same time I got back from my trip. The nautical themes and rich colors seemed like a nice fit for my photos.

This photo of the bridge at sunset was too lovely not to enlarge.  It's not very often that I scrap really big photos, but since it takes up so much space, I decided to keep the rest of the page fairly simple.  I layered the picture of resident pelican in front, and if you take a close look at that photo, you can see the same bridge at sunset behind him.  

I echoed the colors of the paper collection with my alphas for the title, and added half a sun sticker to make it look like it was setting.  

 The other half of the layout is more of the photos I took of some of our favorite places at sunset. 

 It was definitely a struggle to keep these pages from feeling too overworked between the patterned paper and large photo on the left side of the layout, but in the end, I think I struck a pretty decent balance.

Thanks for stopping by!
