I really liked this first page when I finished it but the more I look at it the less I like it. It’s too busy and the text color is funky. The text started out ok until I tried to write on dark blue paint with a blue pen and realizing it wasn’t going to show, I used black. What was I thinking? I have other more suitable color pens. Why choose one that won’t show up and then replace it with one that stands out like a sore thumb? OK it’s not for sale and it won’t get published and except for a few eyes it really won’t be seen much. So why does it bother me so much?
On this next page, it’s a topic I’ve covered before but I can’t quit thinking about it. I really want to travel. I mean I really want to travel. My Guy and I were planning a trip to Europe for our 20th anniversary but we hosted our daughter’s wedding instead. We loved every bit of our girl’s wedding and had a blast helping her plan it. OK, ok, she planned and we paid but you know the real joy is in writing those checks. ;)
However, when it was done I was left with wander lust. Yeah, I’m still lusting after a trip to Italy. Do you know of anyone who might be giving away a free trip to Portofino? NO? Shoot!
Since there are no free trips I am willing to work for the trip. I can carry your bag for you (purse size) should you need help. All you have to do is pay my way. :) When do we leave?
I suppose by now you’ve noticed that’s the Eiffel Tower on the journal page and you know it’s in France not Italy. Honestly, I’m not really so geographically (is that a word?) challenged that I think it’s in Italy. I just didn’t have a picture if the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Thanks for visiting. If you have a moment, leave me a note. I’d love to hear what you think.
