Road Trip Layout

This layout was created for our family road trip pictures.  I used the Summer Celebrations cartridge for all of the die cuts.
For my layout, I added a coordinating border to the center of the solid card stock which had a road trip theme.
The photo mats had three layers to give them some dimension and to coordinate with the center border.
For the handle of the suitcase, I wrapped some Berry Red Trendy Twine and added a sentiment to the front.  The suitcase was also inked on the edges to give it more of a rustic appearance.
All of the sentiments came from the Fiskars "Away We Go Road Trip" stamp set.  I hand cut the flags to use for the sentiments and also matted the stamped images on coordinating card stock.
For the car and camper tires, I used the Herringbone Cuttlebug embossing folder and added a brad to each of the tire centers.
