Life's travels...

Tina here with thoughts on the August kit...

When I first saw this month’s kit I was giddy with excitement with layout and mini book ideas for all the recent vacation pictures I have taken.

But then I thought about life in general and all the detours that my family and I have been through, the travels through life itself that take us in different directions.

Like that job change that you didn’t plan on, or how a relationship grows and changes throughout your life. So many directions and quotes that have to do with life in general, I found new directions no pun intended to go with the kit.

Here's a layout I did for my teenage son whose coming into those years of his life where there are many changes, many detours.

Here are a couple other sayings I thought would be good for those travel through life photos...

Take the high road

Appreciate the detours

Make a u turn when needed

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing - Helen Keller

Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey
