Road Trip Layout

My daughter and I traveled to see my best friend in Myrtle Beach. We had so much fun making this a "just us" trip. Here's what my hidden journaling reads about the first part of the trip:

Kallie and I loaded up in the car on Sept. 23, 2009 for a trip to visit our very good friends Jennifer and Jon Dale in sunny Myrtle Beach, SC. Heavy flooding in and around Atlanta changed our course. Instead of spending the night in downtown Atlanta and visiting the Aquarium we traveled the back roads and stayed the night in a wonderful Holiday Inn Express right in the heart of historic Savannah, GA. Kallie was thrilled the entire trip and never complained, even when our AC went out. She loved stopping at the Lane Peach Orchard right outside of Warner Robbins, GA. We bought two peaches, toured the shop, tried out every thing on the playground. The morning in Savannah was spent touring the river walk and the shops along. We saw tug and steam boats, and pet a horse. Kallie’s two favorite things about Savannah were the clock and bell tower on top of their city hall building, and the cobble stone streets. We watched and listened for the bell chimes throughout the morning. My favorite landmark was The Lady and Son’s restaurant. Kallie only ate the bite in the photo, but trust me everything was delicious. We then moved on in a very hot car ride to our destination.

I bought this paper and coordinating accents at a cute store in Myrtle Beach. This is the Abby Road collection from My Mind's Eye. the fibers are from Adornment. the Eyelet and the two tags Scenic route and adventure are from Making Memories. All embellishments are from CTMH. The LO is based on a sketch from the June 2009 Creating Keepsakes (High School Junior by Suzy Plantamura).
The two beach pictures printed too dark and will have to be reprinted and replaced, so forgive them, I just couldn't wait to post it. Hope you like it.
