Just the right
distance from home... length of stay... vacations for us in 2013.
Typically we make one trip per year to someplace we have never been. We had planned to go visit my friend in D.C. where we have visited several times and then drive on into Delaware which would have been new to both of us. My sudden onset of sciatic problems stopped that. We ended up traveling mostly within our own state plus our usual beach trip to S.C.
The trips were the perfect length in both distance and length of stay for us this year. Things have a way of working out.
This page will be my last page of our travel album for the year. I used a technique from my Art Class at Two Peas on the maps. I used several layers of Modge Podge to adhere and finish the torn pieces of mostly NC and SC maps. One layer had some white paint as our instructor Wilna had suggested as a way to tone down the color and soften the look.
I'm trying to get my 2012 albums - one for everyday stuff and one travel - in order to show my husband for Valentine's Day. He has seen many of the pages already, but not all. It is nice to go through them together. I won't have quite every page in there. Since I started doing American Crafts albums rather than Creative Memories, I don't feel so pushed to have everything done. It is easy to add some more pages later.
Do you add more pages to your albums later on or do a whole album before moving on to the next one?
Thanks for stopping by today!
