South Carolina is for Lovers

Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya. I don't know about you but I do love the beach and I sure do love Folly Beach which is in Charleston, South Carolina. The hubby and I love Folly Beach so much we were married there a couple of years ago. It was the most perfect sunny day in March, out of a not so warm and perfect week of cold, icky and bad weather. But hey...I got my wish of being able to stand barefoot on the beach with the man I love and say our I does. :-)   

I would like to share a page of a recent trip we took. I used the AP 211 State of South Carolina printable and a piece of cardstock that I cut down to 5 5/8"x7 5/8" from the Glitz Uncharted Waters Paper Pad from Altered Pages.

The page was very easy to put together. I used ephemera I had picked up from the hotel and trips into Charleston.

I have a Instax printer that I took along on the trip and was able to print photos that I took with my phone. I added a map of the area that I had pulled from a magazine, printables and a postage stamp that I found of a lighthouse. 

I picked up these over sized business cards at the Music Hall that is located in downtown Charleston.  I knew I had to create a pocket to hold these cards in so I can pull them back out and look at them when I wanted to. 

There you have it a very simple page of vacation memories. If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Come back again tomorrow to see where the design team will take you next as we travel across the USA through art.  Please comment daily to share the love with our artists and be entered into the random drawing for a package of vintage postcards and a vintage map.  (value 17.00)


  1. Truly wonderful composition. Like how you integrated the tourist map and personal items, making it very special.

  2. Such a great composition using your holiday souvenirs and memorabilia Tonya, beautifully done! xx

  3. This is such a great layout. I love the retro feel and the pocket you created to keep all your extra stuff in!

  4. Very nice project. It's a great way to store and display vacation keepsakes.
