The Third Day -- Traveler's Page

“How often do you get to go on vacation with like-minded people,” my husband asked as we discussed the viability of taking our first trip west together. “There won’t be any drinking, smoking, or cursing!” He was right. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with the 37 other people we would get to know in a relatively short time. Most of these pictures were taken at a ranch near Cody, Wyoming. As I put them together, I found myself most impressed because I could actually fit the pictures to the names!

I added the photo mats after I designed my original page because the “map” paper seemed to overpower the photos. This unexpected change called for vertical organizational as opposed to horizontal. It still worked and everything fit! I love it when a plan comes together.
