I went from one Beatles song to another to another and back to the first. I'm not even a big Beatles fan but I do have some memories of playing my parents' original LPs way back in the day and liking a few.
I really wanted to find a way to use something from "Hey, you've got to hide your love away" but somehow it felt a bit sad and I didn't really want to do a play on words - even though I thought about it. Please, Please Me, Twist and Shout, Help and Love, Love Me Do were all hot contenders.
But Ticket To Ride won out in the end and I came up with this layout.
I used my Counterfeit Kit Challenge March kit, Drift and really wanted to try out a large title using the sequin ribbon. But it's really hard! The R is a bit of a fail and I'm not sure I can live with the title as it is but for now, it's glued down and done! I can't promise that I won't remove it and do something different, though!
The words from the Beatles song really did fit perfectly with the theme of the layout which I've actually been wanting to make for some time and the journalling just talks about how I've been a solo traveller for many years. That's not to say that I don't also love travelling with others. But travelling along is something different. I've travelled both east and west to different corners of the world as well as just "around the corner" here in Europe and each journey is special.
I used some of the gorgeous Martha Stewart kraft doily rosettes that Pam sent me for Christmas and just generally layered and prettied until I was satisfied.
