(This post is part of my Onwards and Upwards Blog Event)
This hour I want to continue the adventure theme. I do dream about going to far off places to explore, but in the meantime I need to keep moving onwards by discovering new adventures near home.
Sometimes this can be as simple as going for a walk around the block – I let my son lead the way the other day and he discovered an alleyway I didn’t know existed, and at the end of it was a beautiful tree full of blossom. I need to do this more often and make sure I don’t put the blinkers on!
Days out are a super fun way to have adventures close to home though. Here’s a layout about one such day out last October, when we went to Lyme Regis with some friends:
I had so many photos and memories to record from that day, so I made it into a double-page layout. The photo collage was created in PicMonkey and printed 8×8″ by Photobox, and then I matted it onto white cardstock and then blue cardstock to give it a frame. The supplies are almost all Elle’s Studio Serendipity – this collection is so serene and joyful (and it’s part of the Grand Giveaway)!
I had fun including lots of details to remember how I felt about the day:
And of course lots of gems for a bit of sparkle!
I hope to go on lots more adventures like this!
