First of all, I realize the pictures on this layout are not all actually "geysers," but that was a much better title than "geothermal areas," don't you think?
Anyway, I copied this layout pattern from Linda Rodriguez's layout titled "Tea Party" in the Creating Keepsakes book Fast Scrapbooking with 4x6 Photos. I used the CTMH paper pack "Buzz and Bumble" because I thought the colors brought out the colors of the minerals in the photos.
The left page is pretty simple. I used a zip strip from one of the papers and then cut a couple more strips the same size from another of the papers in the pack. The flourish is from CTMH.

I used a CTMH alphabet stamp set that must have came with a special offer, because I can't find a name for it. I can tell you it was not fun to cut out the letters. Why didn't I use my Cricut for the title? Because I'm not that smart. I just don't use my Cricut that much, and the thought never occurred to me until I was half done cutting out the stamped images. argh.
The journaling element idea was also taken from Linda Rodriguez's layout. I used three tags and glued them together. Then, I wrote across all three tags. I altered my handwriting to make it look a little more vintage. (I wrote short letters and stretched out the space between them.) I distressed the tags with brown ink. I didn't really have anything to journal about, so I described the different geothermal areas at Yellowstone. I hope Wikipedia's info was accurate.
