There aren’t enough finallys in the world for this project! Finally I ordered the pictures (months ago!), and finally I am getting around to making the pages. I love this travel themed paper, and I just added a few things to it. Eric suggested that I tilt the pictures slightly to make them look like they fit into the layout. Good idea!
Those little planes are maybe my favorite thing ever. Eric found these little paper punches for me at the Depot, and I’ve been hankering to use them. I love how they look here.
This second page captures a few sights from our arrival. Our building had the most amazing view from the roof, and we went up there bright and early to see the sunrise (ah, jet lag!). I used a big border sticker on this page, and I like the way it looks against the orange.
One of the things I love the most about international travel is the immediate sense of being in another world. Even before we left the airport, the gate agents’ announcements were in Turkish, as were the exit signs on the plane. It’s such an amazing reminder of how big a place the world really is. I loved recognizing a few words on this menu, and I loved the little introduction to Istanbul at 35,000 feet. More adventures to come!
