The Journey

I loved this week's Frosted Design sketch!  I chose to use it to scrap some photos that I've had for a while with this layout in mind.  My husband and I like to hike up a local hill.  We go quite often since it is basically in town.  There are a few ways up it; there is the main way and then there is a side path.  The side path is longer, but I think it is much prettier!  The main path is a wide loose gravel path and the side path is more of a hiking trail.  There are fewer people on it too.  The two paths join together and reach the same vista, which is gorgeous, so to me, it's all about the journey and we will all enjoy the same destination.

My husband and I seem to part ways on this.  For him, it's very much the finish line and how fast can we get there.  Did I beat you?  Not me in particular, just whoever.  For him it is about the destination.  He doesn't even like to hike trails that don't have some sort of end event like a lake or a waterfall.  Never mind that it was a wonderful hike, there was no bang at the end.  I am ok with having a different point of view.  I think that is what make life interesting!

I used some great paper I got while on my crop last month by a new company called Authentique.  I love this paper!  I only hope someone around here carries it soon!

And because I love double pagers!

Great job on making it a 2 pager! I love that paper line from authentique! I bought awhile ago and have been saving it but seeing this layout has sparked an idea for me to use it :) thanks!
