Art Challenge: Recording Memories

Journal Prompt:  Taking the Road Less Traveled

The journal prompts for June were perfect for me.  As a committed traveler, I have an endless stash of goodies to use, and I am in a "Use It Up" mode.  Cleaning out my files, I found my written journal for my trip to Paris in August of 2004.  The prompt, Taking the Road Less Traveled,  was perfect given that I was traveling standby on a Continental pass, always unsure where I would end up.  This trip started off as a jaunt to Rome and changed to a sojourn in Paris when I found the flight to Rome full.  Our trip came to an end when we saw on CNN our home town posted as the target for a giant hurricane.  I tried to simulate the original journal page by pasting old ledger paper in my journal and transcribing the entry.  My handwriting is unfortunate. 

In my stash, I found a lot of old scrapbooking supplies that I planned on discarding...too cute, but I decided just to stick them to this page.  I added a vintage postcard to capture the scene. (I couldn't save it forever)


  1. Love it that you hit the perfect combo - the need to use it up, and a journal prompt that fit your need. Great page.

  2. This spread looks very good Linda!
