Simple and Quiet

Being that Blogging is still fairly new for me, I have made many layouts and cards and things that were created way before my little blog ever existed. And I want you to see them! Ok, maybe not ALL of them, but some. I’ve got a few faves that I thought I would share with you when I didn’t have a new project to share.

This is one from one of my many trips to Salem, Mass. It takes place in one of the graveyards there. No, I don’t normally hang out in graveyards, but there is just something about this one that I love. Maybe it’s the Salem Witch Trail history that lies there. Maybe it’s that insanely beautiful Oak tree that I make sure I climb when I’m there. I don’t know, but it’s one of my favorite places to be while visiting Salem. Looking at this layout makes me wish I was there right now…


Click on the image to see it bigger. This is by far one of my “simplest” layouts. Not a whole lot going on as far as different papers and embellishments. I wanted the photo to speak for itself. And although the title is “Quiet,” I think this picture speaks volumes.



The background paper and rub-on is from Basic Grey. Solid cardstock from Prism, letters from American Crafts.

I love this photo. And I thought that since we are in October (my FAVORITE month!) -which is when I usually visit Salem- I would share this layout with you. The only thing missing from this picture are a couple of orbs… ;)
