All Around the Cathedral Layout

I finally got to work on some scrapbooking today after several weeks away, and these postcards from St. Paul's Cathedral were beckoning! I already had an intro page plus a pocket page with some journaling for St. Paul's, so I kept the writing on this one to a minimum. In keeping with my previous page, the title is inspired by the song "Feed the Birds" from Disney's Mary Poppins. The interior of the cathedral was as beautiful as the exterior, and we really enjoyed our tour, but since you couldn't take pictures inside, we had to purchase some postcards from the gift shop. I used my July sketch from Splitcoast Stampers for the design, and adapted it to create a row of arches with silhouettes from the life of Christ in them. I also created a pocket on the left hand page to hold the extra postcards. All the postcards are mounted using photo corners so that you can slide them out and see what's written on the back.

The sketch:

My layout:
Paper Fundamentals Basic Assortment patterned paper
Cashmere, Lagoon, Sapphire, Glacier & White Daisy cardstock
Lagoon & Glacier ink
Gold brads
Photo corners (Pioneer)
Cricut New Testament cartridge: life of Christ figures
Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge: title, arches
Pattern: Splitcoast Stampers Sketch17Jul
Challenges: Heart 2 Heart Oh the Places You'll Go challenge (we went to St. Paul's, of course!); The Studio Challenges No People (although there are statues and die-cuts of people, there are no living people on this layout, quite a change for me)
