Europe Vacation 2015: Colmar, France
Our day continued as we went just inside the border of France to Colmar. One of our goals was to try and be in as many countries as we could while we were in Europe, and this stop was our fifth country. We had opportunity to explore the city streets and the stores before finding a street-side restaurant where we ate. While we were waiting for our food I realized that we were sitting in the street right outside the birthplace of Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi – who was the sculptor of the Statue of Liberty! His birthplace has been turned into a museum – http://www.musee-bartholdi.fr/
I followed the color scheme of the Colmar crest on the left hand side, bringing reds and greens into this spread. I am not sure that I like the green that I used on this page, and if I were doing it again I would use a darker green. I had two pages of red and two pages of green to make this spread. The borders on one side of the spread, match the background on the other side. In order to get enough of the red border to go behind the Statue of Liberty sticker I had to cut some out from behind the picture of my son by the river. I usually don’t like to do this, but you can’t tell that this has been done once the pages have been put into the scrapbook.
I took a picture of the museum board so that I would remember where we had been, and I used that on this page to help explain the location, as I don’t like to journal because my handwriting is not neat.
