We Used to Travel {CSI Case File No. 160}

Here's our latest Case File at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. It's open for the entire month:

And here's my page. Clues I used...Evidence: map print, travel elements, textured paper, frames, transparent items, resin accents, decorative border, chevrons, stamps; Testimony: Journal about a trip; 3-line poem.

Here are some details.  The globe and banner for the title are Silhouette cut files. That little airplane is from an old Studio Calico paper. Striped paper is Echo Park, I think. The ticket is by My Mind's eye, and the transparent ticket is by Maya Road.

I backed the little resin frame with another ticket (sei). That numbered border tape is super old and is by Collage Press.

The pointing finger stamp is by Purple Onion Designs and points out the fact that my thoughts are on the back of the page (see journaling below). The Thoughts Dymo-tape looking sticker is really old, by Pebbles, Inc.

Driving the Coastal Highway from Los Angeles to San Francisco. Long weekend drives to Florida to visit Gram. Spur-of-the-moment road trips to New England or Niagara Falls. Flying to Paris to visit Farzad's brother. We used to travel. Since Farzad opened his own business, our days of globetrotting have slown down, except for a couple of anniversary weekends to Atlantis and Las Vegas and one road trip to Chicago to see Farzad's niece.

I have become quite a homebody these days, but I'd still fancy seeing the world beyond Maryland. I've got lots and lots of spots I still want to visit. For now, I suppose I'll have to just reminisce and wait until Farzad retires.

We've got an incredible reveal for this Case File. And we have 4 main sponsors plus our permanent sponsors. Lots of awesome prizes to win this month! Come see!

Love this page! I had to go download that globe right away! I love to travel and hope that you get to again soon! Cheers! BTW, thanks for answering that last question about printing white on dark cardstock.

Such a pretty page. Love the silhouette cut bits. I just bought myself the cameo for Christmas. Hopefully after all this wedding madness I will be able to play with it all... I love to travel. My first time overseas I was 45. I hope I can still do it for a while to come <3 thanks for all of your inspiration Debbi.

Fabulous page, Debbi, and it struck a chord, as we used to travel too, but my DH is simply too old nowadays.....one day, maybe I will get to go again. And this is such a fab 'classic' photo shot! Love the way you incorporate your stash, too:):)
