I love seeing everyone’s creations!  Thank you for the kind words of encouragement to all.

DeLoris, your layout really captures the cell block spirit of Alcatraz.  I visited Alcatraz many years ago when there were still US govt-guided tours.  One thing that stood out for me was the prison menu posted on a big black felt board with white plastic letters on the way into the cells: turkey with gravy, mashed potatoes, buttered peas and carrots, fresh buttered rolls, coffee, tea, milk, orange juice, pumpkin pie with whipped cream (and it was not a holiday menu) — they put out a nice spread for the prisoners which was calculated to quell mutiny.  I found that of interest.

Here’s my Day 3.  I struggled with getting the option for reverse path to appear (it was greyed out almost every time I tried it) but once I got it I was able to finally finish the postmark.  I plan on getting good use out of that postmark too since it took me so long to create it!

I am still using Elif Sahin’s “Heatwave” papers and elements from Pixelscrapper.  The two Tahitian stamps with the Chapeaux en Polynesie were scanned from an old postcard mailed during this trip.
