I first saw ScraptoberFest on Scrap Our Stash, and their challenge was straightforward enough - use two different washi tapes.
Challenge YOUrself asked for a layout with YOU in the photo. At this point I was thinking that my entry would be another cruise page, but ...
My Scraps and More gave us a colour combination, and this was not going to work with the aqua, orange, cream and grey of my cruise album so far.
Finally, The Memory Nest gave us a sketch, a fairly simple sketch, so open to interpretation.
I focussed on the requirement for me to be in the photo, but I didn't really have any unscrapped that would fit both the sketch and the colour combination. However, we've been talking about our holidays (vacations) recently, and planning where we'd like to go next year and the following years and I decided to get my thoughts down on an 8x8 page.
My annual family albums and my holiday albums are all 12x12, but I sometimes make 8x8 pages which are more about thoughts and feelings, rather than the 12x12s that document our activities.
I used a photo of me in one of the photo spots on the sketch and used the other for my title.
I worked on white cardstock, matted on navy, and used several of my travel stamps to make the background. I've written the names of all the countries I've already visited around the edge of the page, and also written a little about some of the places I'd still like to visit. At the moment, I think we'll be returning to Austria next year, but after that, who knows?
