Mining Tour Scrapbook Layout

I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t had much time to do any of my Crafty Canada stuff, and realized I hadn’t done a post in quite some time.  Seeing as I haven’t made anything recently, I decided I would put up one of my scrapbooking layouts I did a while back.

This layout is of the Mascot Mine tour we did in Hedley, BC with some friend of ours.  It was a long and windy drive up a mountain to get to it, but once there, it was amazing to tour around the buildings that were clinging to the mountainside.  Be warned if you ever decide to tour it though, you have to walk down about 500 stairs to get to the buildings, then walk back up them to get back to the bus.  There was also a short tour inside one of the mountains, which was nice for cooling off on a hot day!

My oldest son and I are afraid of heights, so going down the stairs was a little slow, but he enjoyed getting to the bottom and putting on the mining hat to tour around.  My youngest son had no problem getting down those stairs with my husband though.  And neither of the boys had any troubles climbing the stairs back up to the top…I wish I could say the same for myself however :(.

To do this layout I used my Cricut machine to cut out the letters.  I used a couple of different fonts from my SCAL program (Sure Cuts A Lot).  I layered my pictures on top of some papers that had a vintage look, and pinned on some paper flowers with red and purple brads.  I also used brown ink to distress the edges of my papers to give an old look.  I found corner tabs from the Craft Edge website, as well, that somebody was nice enough to  post there as a free svg!
