The Long Journey Home – Simple Stories Let’s Go – Amy Kattenbelt
Hello Magpies, Amy here to share another travel layout using Simple Stories Let’s Go collection. You may remember a few weeks ago I shared a layout that was to be my first in my holiday 2022 album. Well today I am sharing what will be the last layout in that album!
I don’t know about you, but when I am on holiday, the journey back home often gets forgotten about. I never think about taking photos. All the excitement of the impending vacation fun has gone and the journey home can seem somewhat of a drag. When we go to The Netherlands, we travel by car. So it’s a very long journey home, hence my layout title. But this year, after 3 years of not having a proper holiday, I made a conscious effort to take snap shots along the route home. I took photos out of the front window of the passenger seat and have used these in this layout.
I printed out these photos in very small square format so they would all fit into the one 12×12 layout. They weren’t amazing quality photos so the small size worked well.
I placed my photos in the order they were taken into my layout, and then worked out my title and journalling placement. I thought it would be fun to record how many miles we travelled and how long the journey took us.
I love how the busy layout ended up. A great way to record the end of our holiday and something I will be doing for future vacations!
Thanks for coming to take a closer look at this layout. I will be back with you on the 1st October as it’s my turn to set the next Hey Little Magpie Monthly Challenge, so until then take care!
