Hike to a Glacier - page 1

(1) As we drove past the gorgeous scenery on Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park,
(2) we didnít stop very often to take pictures because we had a long hike planned that day.
(3) With each of us carrying part of our lunch, we set out. Dad was in the back, taking pictures of our behinds. When Mom complained about the unflattering perspective, he moved to the front.
(4) I was nervous whenever we crossed small streamlets.
(5) We hiked past three lakes, always climbing up.

Photo changes:
All of the foreground photos are 40 years old, so I tried to make them brighter and closer to the original colors.

The background photo is a stock photo that I expanded to fill my two pages and altered a lot so it didnít compete with my older, less sparkling photos. I used a couple of papers from various kits (see below), changed them to B&W and/or re-colored them, then used them on overlay or multiply.

Reflections Of The Heart Value Pack (frames,modified; berries, fastener, leaves, paper mini 3 used as background overlay) by Jen Reed
Swim Like A Fish Paper Biggie(paper 15 used as background overlay) by Jen Reed
Butterfly Kisses (both alphas, gold paper behind title alpha) by Jen Reed

    I really like the framed titles and the journaling with the numbers to explain. Great two page LO.
    I can't believe the photos are that old. You did a great job with them!
    Wow, this is just wonderful! I so enjoyed your journaling and your work on the photos is super - in no way do they look 40 years old! I love how you arranged the photos and stretched a pic across both layouts. Really a gorgeous two-pager! :)
    I'd love to go there! Beautiful photos and love your journaling. I really like the format overall!
    What a fabulous walk the scenery is breathtaking :) Good job with the photo manipulation :)
    What an awesome experience this must have been. I love the photos. You did so well with recoloring. I could not tell that the photos were taken at different times.
    Great photos, the color is amazing. What a wonderful adventure that must have been!
