There are as many travel scrapbook ideas as there are places to travel to. Travel is a theme that will have you scrapping anything from snowy peaks to coral reefs, golden beaches to neon lights.
In my case it was sitting on an elephant's back in Goa. In fact I remember getting my first travel scrapbook ideas for this layout while the elephant was taking aim!
Incidentally, you too can have a sun tan like mine - if you never go outside!
CAPTURE THE MOMENT.....
I've included my 'elephant page' here because I don't think I've ever made a layout with photos taken within a 10 second period before. Actually, 'Power Shower' is what the Indian elephant-handlers call this particular tourist attraction!
But your photos don't have to be taken almost simultaneously to belong together. If your travel scrapbook photos create an emotion in you when they're grouped together - then scrap those photos on the same page!
MATERIALS USED IN THIS TRAVEL SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT
This group of photos lent themselves to 'mirroring' the photo content in the layout. I used a grey 'trunk' of Bazzill Basics cardstock, and made my white
letters appear from the trunk, adding a few Wedgwood watersplash punch motifs for added effect.

HAVE YOU EVER HAD 'SCRAPPERS' BLOCK'?!
Every time I think about making a layout I um and ah for ages, not knowing how to start it. I might have some great photos, maybe even some great embellishments but I can't get a handle on the 'big picture' - literally. I am therefore hugely grateful to Jen Gormley's superb book '
500 Scrapbooking Sketches
', that has a ton of great layout frameworks that bust through my scrapper's block every time! What a lot of time I might have saved. Hey ho.
