Scrapbooking with Maps

by Cheryl
(Dolan Springs, Arizona)

When we take road trips, especially long road trips, I like to use the road maps of where we go on some of my scrapbook pages.

Last year, we took a 3 week cross country road trip and stopped in many different states, towns and points of interest. Of course, we took lots and lots of pictures. I find that when laying out my pages for the pictures, it's fun to use a map of the area as background on the page. It's also very helpful when you are in as many places as we were on our trip.

What I do is just scan a part of the map I want in my layout; sometimes having the name of the city, town or point of interest as the focal point. Other times, the whole map is just the background for the page. After I have scanned the pertinent part of the map onto my computer, I print it out on acid free scrapbooking paper and attach it to my page.

I find this really helps with journaling as well as keeping track of what you did where.

Private Security Companies

Private Security Companies - Do you need a contract security provider to ensure the safety of your home, business, or personal valuables? If so, you’ve probably encountered several private security companies while attempting to narrow down your choices. But what exactly is a private security company, and what are some advantages to hiring a private company instead of relying on local law enforcement?

There are lots of cool ways to include maps in a scrapbook. The Page Maps idea book has to be one of the best that I have seen.

What a great idea, a photo of one of the pages would have been worth at least another 500 words if not a 1000. Pictures help sell the idea and I think thi is a great one.
