Journal 52

We got our theme early this week in the city....and I hunted high & low for some photos of Barcelona but I just could not find 2 of our albums, how weird is that! 

So I had to go with Paris because I got an Air France magazine from a friend recently, she acquired it on her return flight from staying with us at the chalet in august.

A map of Paris, a piece of card that I coloured & embossed (TH) a tag with the arc de triomphe & some writing....

And the rest of the map with a TH stamp on the flip side

DLP is going to be more difficult as it requires us to use 3 colours that we never use.....I use most & most of the time but I managed to work out that navy, brown & olive are the ones I use the least....sounds a bit on the camouflage side so I need to think of a way for it not to look like army issue!

Maybe my beer consumption today will help, we were supposed to be at a brewfest in Maine today with Nicki & Joe, on a beach in the sun! We had our own version here with some bottled beer and bangers on the BBQ but it was not the same without the family & I guess now is as good a time as any to tell you that I shall not be visiting the USA this Fall due to ongoing health issues for Bill. He is getting his hip operation on the 20th of next month & hopefully that means that he will start to improve 9 months after his fall.

Keep watching this space for updates to inchies, twinchies,tags & pages....:-)


  1. Hi Sally. Great journal page. Love the collection of images and stamping.

  2. Great use of maps on your journal page, as you know, I love maps. Hope you enjoyed your beer fest and hope all goes well for Bill.

  3. WOW I love all the different shades on your page here, maps can add so much interest to a project Sally, gorgeous!! Sorry to hear of the impending op but hopefully it will help long term, they've improved the operations immensely, getting you up soon as poss and keeping you moving goes a long way to recovering sooner, best wishes to you both :D Gay x

  4. A great journal page Sally. Hope everything goes well for Bill, that fall sure gave him on going problems, fingers crossed, this will mean a full recovery.
