Travels Abroad Layout

I'm sharing another layout today inspired by the Timeline materials in the Hello Story workshop. This one is pretty much a direct scraplift of Ali Edward's layout - the circle design, the pie shaped pieces with portions popped up, and even the travel theme.

Journaling reads: Robbie's job at jNetX required him to travel abroad & I was lucky to get to accompany him on three trips. We both enjoyed our time together on these trips and miss it now that the company sold. But, we'll go again some day.

I scrapped the stories and photos from our travels abroad in a 12x12 theme album several years ago. I had some extra photos that I filed away in my Category Drawers, so it was easy to quickly pull a photo from each trip for this layout that while go in our Places We've Been Library of Memories album.

What a great design it is: it really hints at the different parts of a trip all coming together
