This is week four of my Project 52 Project Life digital scrapbook for 2018. I’ve started this project so that I can keep track of my year and travels each week. I wrote a post earlier this month that you can read about this year’s theme.
This week I finally left California. After spending the months of October, November, December, and most of January staying in various places there, it is time for me to start heading east.
From Palm Desert, I drove to Cottonwood, Arizona. Cottonwood is at a much higher elevation than the desert floor of California, so it was much colder there. However, it is a beautiful part of the country.
Last year when I was in Cottonwood, my friend, Myra came to visit me and we spent most of our time visiting places north of there including Sedona and the Grand Canyon.
Somehow, we missed Jerome. So, I decided to visit there this trip. And I sure am glad that I did!
Jerome is an old mining town first settled by non-native people in the late 1800s. It has boomed and busted and has had a couple of different fires. However, now it is a cute, mostly restored town, with shops and restaurants.
I only stayed in Cottonwood a few days. It was really a stopping off place to break up the drive to Tucson where I have a couple of good friends. Ernestina and Valerie moved there late last year from Seattle.
One of the best things about traveling full-time in my RV is that I get to visit friends along the way.
I drove to Benson, Arizona which is about 40 or so miles east of Tucson. I’m staying at an RV park that is on the way to Tombstone, Arizona.
On my second day there, I drove into Tucson to visit Ernestina and Valerie. I spent the afternoon with them and Ernestina’s cousin Robin. It was great catching up and I look forward to next week when I’m staying in Tucson.
For this week’s spread, I created two pages using the Project Life App and the Project 52 Edition kit.
I really like how these pages turned out. I added more text to one of the journaling cards because I wanted to capture more details about the photo to the right.
The filler cards really add to a spread when there isn’t a lot of photos. Yet, it looks great! IMHO!
