Project Life 2013 - Vacation!

Tuesday, July 16, 2013


This is Part 2 of Weeks 25 & 26 - we took our first long RV trip! We went to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio for a couple of days, then to Niagara Falls, and took a couple of days to make our way home through New York, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. I did a two-page spread for the trip and added a 12x10 insert (Becky Higgins Design G).

The  left side and front of the insert: I concentrated on documenting our journey on these two pages - our truck and camper, our route, the states Joe drove through, what we ate, and how we spent each day.


I used a Honey title card and added October Afternoon alphas to spell out 'Road Trip'. I added the dates after I took the picture!



We had a ton of rain one day while we were driving home, so I added an Amy Tangerine sticker and a Heidi Grace felt cloud to a free printable about a rainy day.


I used a Blush card to document what I did while Joe drove us everywhere.



I messed up the journaling that was on the bottom of the US map, so I cut the bottom half off. I centered it on top of a Studio Calico arrow card and added 'here we go' to the map.


I took a screenshot of our route and printed it out 3x4. I added little tags for the locations and cut a 4x6 card to 4x4 to mount it on.


I used the Rhonna Designs app to make this 4x4 photo! I used a little hashtag on Instagram and wanted to remember it. I took a screenshot of those pictures and added a mask with Rhonna Designs. I used one of the great fonts to spell out our hashtag. I LOVE how this card turned out!


The front of the insert:



A simple sticker made this filler card super cute!


The back of the insert and right side of the trip: Here I concentrated on the things we did and things we saw: Cedar Point, Niagara Falls, the heat, the Super Moon, and the New River Gorge.


The back of the insert: I used Diptic to make a little collage of some of the Cedar Point rides. I took pics of the campground and our campsite (look how close we were to one of the roller coasters!). I had a cute 4x6 Ferris Wheel card that I used for journaling.


The right side of the trip:
