Travel Collection for at Home Event

You don't have to leave home to use those travel papers.  Just Skpe.

Early in the morning a couple of weeks ago, my stepdaughter called for a favor.  She needed someone to Skype with her class and play a 20 questions type geography game.  She was planning to do this with another class somewhere else in the world but it fell through. That's what parents are for, the fall back plan.

We were happy to do it though I had to hurry up and put Skype on my current laptop.  I didn't realize when I agreed that I hadn't Skyped anyone since getting this computer nearly 2 1/2 years ago! DH was the person the kids had to 'find' by asking yes or no questions. They started with "Are you in the Northern Hemisphere?" and went from there looking at maps when they got things narrowed down.  The question of "Do the Appalachian mountains run through your state?" sent them through several states before they got to us but they did find us.

It was fun and is captured on this page using a Basic Grey travel collection generously sent to me by my friend Mary.  We don't travel as much as we used to so I was thrilled to put these papers to good use.

Here's the video:

The sketch is from my first sketchbook.  All the sketchbooks are available here.

Thanks for watching!

  1. Great page Lisa and what a fun thing your step-daughter did with her class. I think you've inspired me to pull out my BG travel papers! That's a really great design too! I like how you cut out bits and pieces of words too.
