Here's a bit of history behind some of the layouts in Ethnic Scrapbooking. You will find this layout on page 86 of the book and one I'm sure many can relate too.
I'm just back from a mini-excursion to New York City where I got a huge dose of cultural diversity, but this trip was a bit different because I was with my globe-trekking sister, this was our first time experiencing Manhattan together.
The bit of history/trivia about this layout is that those are actual bottle caps on the bottom of the page (which makes it very heavy and lumpy) which is not a good thing for scrapbooks, so use them very sparingly. When my husband saw me making this page, he finally said, "Well, you've got entirely too much scrapbooking stuff!" To which I replied, "Just like that entire garage full of stuff you have!"
