UTAH BOUND - May 2010 - Utah

JOURNALING:  May totals:  2,912 miles in 45+ hours of driving

SUPPLIES USED:  K&Co Road Trip papers and embellishments

TECHNIQUE TIP:  There are times when a scrapbook page does not need any photos at all to tell a story, but a map and good journaling will do the trick.  On this layout, I wanted to show an overview of our trip from the very southern tip of Texas all the way into Utah and its beautiful National Parks.  The K&Company Road Trip paper and embellishments were a perfect match for this travel themed layout.  The background paper that I used was very busy so I needed lots of "white" space to come from my embellishments.  A very simple daily calendar sheet and colorful but simple title helped add interest without making it too busy.  A small map to outline our journey took the place of where I would normally put a photo - Don't be afraid to substitute maps and other memoribillia for spots normally reserved for photographs.
