Cal Academy Layout

Layout of our visit to the California Academy of Sciences:

I wanted to scrapbook the pictures from our museum visit, but ended up with a layout that I feel like is less artistic. It accomplishes the goal of telling the story, but I have this notion in my head that scrapbook layouts should be works of art. It's hard to get away from that when that's the message I feel like I get from scrapbook magazines.

Anyway, I usually collect various paper things when we travel (brochures, tickets, maps, etc.), but most times don't actually incorporate those things into layouts. I still don't have the map and ticket from the museum on the front of this layout (except those butterflies punched from a second ticket and a cropped tag from a souvenir T-shirt), but I added a glassine envelope to the back where I could stick those things, as well as a tag with journaling.

I should work on incorporating more stuff I collect on outings onto my layouts so that I don't end up with junk (if it's on a layout, it's meaningful; if it doesn't it's junk).
