I truly love Lisa and where her creativity takes her. This week she challenged us all to be inspired by maps . And while I was just that, inspired, I had a hard time turning that inspiration into a layout.
A few elements conspired to my block:
a) I "pinned" too many ideas
b) my printer ran out of ink to print the maps needed for this ideas
c) the maps in my stash of memorabilia didn't have corresponding pictures
Ultimately, I was frustrated and against the Sunday deadline with no layout. Then today I just decided to raid my grandmother's "map" collection. She loves maps and collects them from everywhere we go. She also buys them and saves them and uses them. Someday I will put that story down on a layout. But for now I will stop babbling and show you what I came up with.
(these photos are from a time when I was a little chunkier and I avoid using them} but then I remembered these pictures and my face says it all. I am glad I went with the pictures for this one.

Another week and another 2 layouts done. Thank you Lisa. I love all the creations I saw over on the gallery this week. Remember if you completed a project based on this fun challenge, please add it to our Flick'r gallery so we can all ogle over it.
Stay tuned for this weeks challenge.
