Story Scrapbook Challenge: Visits

Holidays, trips, vacations – well whilst we might not be doing any tripping whilst in isolation and social distancing – how about we at least TALK about holidays, trips and vacations.

How about grabbing a fun photo from a previous trip and revisit it, the sights, the sounds, the foods, the company, and just enjoy for a brief moment whilst you take that trip down memory lane and scrap a page.  Are you dreaming of your next trip when life gets back to normal?

Or maybe you would like to document these times amongst your precious family pages.  Have you been disappointed that a long awaited trip has had to be cancelled?  Or are you on tenterhooks with the timelines – is it/or is it not going to happen?  Have you been caught up on flights being grounded and trying to get yourself or a loved one back home to you?

So whether you story is a happy one or a sad one, let’s talk about holidays, trips and vacations, any way you’d like.  Buckle up your seatbelt and lets get scrapping!

The creative team have jumped on board with some terrific example pages, each of us diving into the subject from a different angle, which is what I love about the story challenge.

Firstly Shannon an intrepid traveller has had to cancel so many of her trips this year.   There are so many people like Shannon with plans both cancelled and up in the air.  I’m sure many will relate and this may spark something to scrap about your own cancelled plans, as sad as that is.

Supplies Shannon has used:  Watercolor Sketchbook Kit,  Watercolor Simplicity Layered Template No. 02,  Vintage Artistry Natural Stack Layers,  Let’s Do This Brushes and Stamps.

There was no travelling for Amy for her birthday this year, one I’m sure she’ll remember.  She documents beautifully how whilst her traditional birthday celebrations were out the window, that she had a lovely birthday anyway due to the beautiful friends and family she has.
