Yes, Carole – but life has a way of doing just that! Well, I did change all the cars to the red car just so the story would have continuity in the elements. I really have learned a lot from you and so appreciate it as do all of us!!!!
This is page 6 and the story will continue – the corn cob (singular) did come from a Thanksgiving group of clip art I think from Corel at some point in time. I combined 3 of them into a group and colored them each differently before grouping them together and then merging them so that I could shadow them. This was fun. The font, papers are the same throughout. The next page will be in Mitchell, SD also, but across the street – at the time we made this trip it was a doll museum which of course we had to go and see also as Victoria was only 7 at the time. I won’t get to the postage stamp and postcard until we actually arrive in Spearfish – clear across the state and next to Wyoming. But — the story will continue after that as we visited a lot of places in that short time in and around Spearfish, Rapid City and even into Wyoming — before heading back to Memphis. Whew! I think we only had 10 days total time because both my daughter, Anna, and I were working full time.July 1, 2021 at 7:20 pm #59879
Laurie your travel tale is most interesting. You put a smile on my face when you said you were disappointed with your leather tag … I cannot begin to tell you how many times some of mine have gone into the rubbish bin, lol! A lovely page my friend, keep on keeping on and a perfect leather tag will just pop up one day. ;DJuly 1, 2021 at 9:14 pm #59882laurie solaasParticipant
Today I worked on stamps and a postcard.
I experimented with the text. I wanted to try and give it a stoney, 3-D effect. I generated the rock in Filter Forge. My background was created using the Reflection/Pattern effect.

As everyone has said…beautiful creations here! I have enjoyed your trips and creativity. I have been in a slump and just couldn’t get going. I did manage Day 1 and Day 2. After that there was no motivation, no mojo, no nothing. Yesterday I created each days’ addition, date stamp, post card, stamp, leather tag but I still can’t seem to work up the interest to finish the trip. Perhaps it is because I have created many pages about the trip already. Any way…here’s what I have.July 2, 2021 at 9:33 am #59896July 2, 2021 at 9:34 am #59899July 2, 2021 at 9:39 am #59901
Here is the stamp…I added a pink background…otherwise it would have blended with the Campus background. The leather tag above is the logo of the clinic we attended.July 2, 2021 at 2:03 pm #59915
Bonnie – beautifully done. Yes, you need a color behind the stamp or the edges don’t show! The leather tag is really great – a lot of the element to “embed”.July 2, 2021 at 3:53 pm #59916Lynda DiGregorParticipant
Everyone is doing such a great job. Wonderful stories and places.
Sorry I was not able to participate this time…moving is a real pain in the tush! Sore from head to toe. We’ll get through it and I’ll be back. Keep up the good work everyone. 😉July 2, 2021 at 4:31 pm #59918
Here is page 7 – still in Mitchell, SD but at the Doll Museum. New stuff: arrow from PS-Marissa Lerin, spray of flowers from PS-apJessJuly 2, 2021 at 9:11 pm #59929
You are welcome Laurie. This page turned out really well … the text is amazing, well done my friend. ;DJuly 3, 2021 at 4:26 pm #59942
Page 8 – the purple frame is from PS-Marissa Lerrin (it was blue originally), the pasque flower is the state flower and I extracted it from a photo and now have it as an element (png). The mask I made with the eraser tool (don’t quite remember how to do it with the paint brush???), the 3 bottom pictures are in masks also but I put the 3 of them on 1 mask (didn’t know it but that is how you put a picture through 3 masks) and so I had to shuffle the pictures around so that they didn’t overlap each other! This one has been quite a learning experience about masks. I decided to put the SD leather tag with this picture.August 12, 2021 at 12:35 pm #61692
Well, it happened again. Once and a while, when I edit a post, it disappears… Sometimes, it reappears, and then there are two posts if I repost. Anyway, I will write it again.
I am late, but I want to acknowledge all the lovely and creative layouts added to this challenge. Every page is unique and a source of inspiration. Great work, Everyone!
Hi Lynda, I hope that you are feeling better by now! We are missing you here. 🙂
A few days ago, I finally finished the layout for this challenge. It is a first that took me so long, but many things were going on, and I didn’t have much time to work on it.
I used Marisa Lerin Day4 layout.
Background paper: PixelScraper 2019Feb blog train from Rush Ranch -“A Walk in the Wild ” – “rr_feb19_wildside_solid18”
Edge Trims: Solid Color —- PixelScrapper – Melo Vrijhof “ps_melo-vrijhof_162542_textures-painted-paper2-paint-paper-08_cu” —- HG Designs – “hg-cu-messyheartsoverlay” – and played with the Blend Mode.

Cristina, you should have asked me. I just checked and sure enough, it was caught in the spam filter.August 12, 2021 at 1:13 pm #61699
Thank you, Carole! I know you deal with so many different things at the same time (sometimes I wonder how you manage it) that I didn’t want to bother you with this minor thing. 🙂
Update: I also used Cassel’s Lifted Photo Script!

My goodness, two outstanding pages. I can see you have put a tremendous amount of time and effort into them. I have one word for you Cristina, kudos!August 12, 2021 at 1:41 pm #61704
My dear friend, Sue, thank you ever so much! Your kind comment does means a lot to me! <3August 12, 2021 at 5:22 pm #61713Corrie KinkelParticipant
Cristina you have made a great travel tale!!! So nice to see all those pictures because many years (12 to be precise) we planned to go to Portugal and Lissabon, everything was booked and 2 days before departure my husband became very ill and I had to cancel everything. Since then he cann’t travel anymore, so we never made that trip. Nowadays I travel on my own but somehow never made that trip.August 12, 2021 at 10:05 pm #61720
Terrific work on this one dear Cristina and super colours. Well done my friend, a joy to peruse. ;DAugust 13, 2021 at 9:52 am #61722
Dear Corrie, thank you so much for your kind comment! It is very much appreciated. <3
Sorry to hear about your husband getting ill before the trip and that he cannot travel anymore. As my mother-in-law always tells us: “Enjoy while you can”…We are well aware that life can change in a split of a second.
Last year, we were planning to go back and get to know the North, Porto, and surroundings, but that was not possible, of course. And although both of us are fully vaccinated, I don’t feel comfortable yet traveling.
Portugal has become a tourist destination, and one can see/hear tourists from all over. In the South, Algarve, the British are the majority since ever. At the hotels, living there during winter, having their local places to eat, and even free newspapers at bigger supermarkets… But you also see many motor homes from France, Netherlands, etc…
Maybe one day you can plan a trip there, as it’s also not far from where you live. 🙂August 13, 2021 at 9:54 am #61723
Dear Annie, thank you so much! Your comments are always very much appreciated, my friend! <3August 13, 2021 at 10:35 am #61727Lynda DiGregorParticipant
Thanks, Cristina, much appreciated. Love your pages. Don’t know how you keep track of all the things you use to create them.
Mary, South Dakota, a great place to visit. Love your Corn Palace photos. They actually change the murals on it every year. Pretty impressive!
Again, everyone is doing a great job.
We are in the process of selling our home and it’s pretty unnerving. We have to pack ourselves up and our very old dog and get out while there are people are looking at the house. Still don’t really know why but it is what it is. Cuts into my creativity. I don’t like it one bit!
Keep the projects flowing. I love seeing what everyone comes up with. 🙂
This photo is for Mary. Corn Palace from 2016- 2017 and they were working on it at the time I took this photo. Thought you might find it interesting.
