I'm here with another travel challenge for you! Last month we traveled far away to some place we'd like to go, but one doesn't always have to go far. This month, your challenge is to scrap a page on a trip close to home. It could be some place in your hometown that you like to go to for fun, or a place not too far away. Many times we forget how fun traveling in our own neighborhood can be, or how far others have to come to visit for their own vacation.

I happen to live just outside of Tokyo and I remember the first time we "vacationed" here from Korea almost four years ago. How strange it was that that was our "one time" to visit and make the most of such an exciting city. Now, it's fun to just go out and see the city for the day, explore a new neighborhood. Last week we did just that!

I used "Well Read" (kit) and "Well Traveled" (add-on) by Sugarplum Paperie. The map paper is in the Well Traveled add-on, it was perfect for this page since I could point Alsace with the arrows on the top left corner!

Thanks for the "great", but I have to admit I had the advantage of knowing this challenge in advance for the "fast"! LOL I totally agree with you, this challenge is great!

Here's my version.....a beach that's our day-trip beach in NC. Uses "Altered Bohemian" kit by Joyful Heart Designs and the template is from TDC's collab kit "Someone Like You."

Here's mine, a lovely park within easy walking distance of my home. And another 1/4 mile away is a fabulous seafood restaurant, a beautiful waterfall, and walking paths that will take you to the Mississippi River!
