This is the first layout I made with the Happy Traveler collection. Many more to come!

Last May we were on vacation in Louisiana and when we were in Lafayette we decided to book a swamp tour. This was such an awesome experience that I had to scrap it and the Happy Traveler collection was just perfect for this! Except for two 4x6" photos, I also scrapped the tour admittance ticket.

For the background I used two sheets of patterned paper and a sheet of white cardstock and machine stitched them together. I matted the photos and arranged them on the map paper, added the journaling card, the swamp ticket, hand written journaling and some embellishments. The layout really didn't need a whole lot more as the paper with the map is so awesome, you don't want to cover it all up.

I love those wood veneers and puffy stickers!! 

Then I decided something was missing and added the hand stitched arrows. For this I used the embroidery stencils from Amy Tangerine and the "I-Score & Pierce" tool. 

I so love this tool and use it all the time! It's really four tools in one: there are 4 tips: a 1mm piercing tip, a 4mm piercing tip, a 1.5mm embossing tip and a 2.0mm embossing tip. Here's what I did:

Imaginisce: patterned paper, wood veneer, puffy stickers (Happy Traveler); American Crafts: cardstock, Thickers, embroidery stencil. Tools: Imaginisce I-Score & Pierce tool.

And here's how the collection looks:
