The Great Outdoors by Valerie

Here's another "Great Outdoors" layout, this time by Valerie Mangan. Valerie says, "I'm not much of a camper or outdoors-person for that matter. So, when I decided to make a 'Great Oudoors' themed project I wondered if I'd be able to find some subject matter among my photos that would be worthy of the task. Thanks to the SRM Outdoor-themed stickers, it was a breeze. The variety of sentiments on the Say It With Stickers & Express Yourself sheets were perfect for the photos I did have; from an outing with my husband in the Muir Woods near San Francisco."

"Layered underneath my photo is a glassine envelope with a stamped sentiment. The envelope contains my journaling and a few extra photos. I added a stickers from the Express Yourself - Outdoors sheet to the patterned paper under the envelope, the kraft background and also as part of my title."

"I was very excited when I noticed this quote from the Say It With Stickers - Outdoors sheet was by John Muir. The woods where I saw these giant redwood trees is named after John Muir. (The Muir Woods National Monument) I love when coincidences like that happen!"

SRM Stickers used: Express Yourself - Outdoors #42030, Say It With Stickers - Outdoors #39045, Sticker Numbers - Small #48086.
