Crazy Roads of the Wild Atlantic Way

I love that scrapbooking helps me look at how I take photos differently than before I scrapbooked. When we were on our recent trip to Ireland, so many of the roads were scenic, but also really crazy. It's something we'll never forget, but I'm not sure I would have taken photos of some of the crazy street signs if I wasn't a scrapbooker. In fact, I had enough crazy road photos for a 2 page layout all about our drive time on the Crazy Roads of the Wild Atlantic Way.

I actually printed these photos out and took them into A Walk Down Memory Lane to wander among the papers and find the right ones. I walked past Simple Stories Life Documented and decided the colors would be perfect.

 Lots of miles of grey, so the grey in the collection complimented it nicely. The reason I really picked the collection, though, were the pops of blue and yellow. The bright colors really help the photos pop, and even make the yellow road signs stand out more.

Most of the time we were too busy staring at the scenic views, being slightly terrified over the narrow roads, and laughing about the cray road signs (seriously, the picture below shows the Irish version of a caution sign. It's just a big exclamation point!) to take photos, but then I remembered I might want to scrap about this later.

I'm always in need of places to jot down some journaling. For this layout I created my own journaling card from  a piece of striped paper that was part of the collection. 

I also used a few stickers form Life Documented to create some journaling space as well. 

Does scrapbooking help you look at the world in a different way?
Thanks for stopping by!
