Homeward Bound

The piles of photos from my Vancouver 2012 vacation are getting shorter by the day. There may be light at the end of the tunnel after all. :)

I decided to jump to what would be the last page in the album. This last page was to mirror the first in the album so it would also feature the outline of the province I was travelling to, its provincial coat of arms, and my airport and aeroplane souvenirs.  I changed the outline and button to Ontario, sent the plane flying west and the departure airport photo to Vancouver. It just all came together for me.

I played along with two challenges with this layout.
The sketch was the August 3rd sketch from The Memory Nest. It fit the horizontal stretch of my items to a 'T'. The Memory Nest has several challenges a month. They are released on Mondays. I only recently discovered this site but will definitely be back to play again.
The other challenge was #253,  "Sky High", the week one August challenge from Lasting Memories. Each week they will have a challenge based on the "Sky High" theme so check back. This week it was to be something that signified "Sky High". I thought my aeroplane flight would be just the ticket (pun intended).

When I put the first and last pages together I was very happy with the 'start' and 'end' of my albums.

Off to Vancouver
Back to Ontario
