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.
