2021: Chickasaw Country Road Trip

On a weekend in late spring, my parents and I decided to take a trip down to the Chickasaw Recreation Area in Sulphur, Oklahoma. We first visited the Chickasaw Welcome Center in Sulphur, and then went on to drive through Chickasaw Recreation Area stopping to see the Lincoln Bridge which is featured in the 2011 National Park quarter collection. We also travelled to Davis, OK and visited the Welcome Center there, and had to stop by the Bedré chocholate factory and store. Bedré’s in my opinion has the best chocolate mint bars available.

I chose a brown theme for this spread to compliment the colors in the title block, and the browns from the stones in the pictures. The left-hand page has the Chickasaw Country logo which I cut out of the brown paper bag that our items from the gift store came in as well as two pictures from the area. The thin brown border on the pictures is duplicated on the left double border.

The right-hand page has two pictures from the Lincoln Bridge, which is in the park, as well as a folder which contains a 2011 Chickasaw Recreation Area National Park Quarter. If you watch the video below you can see this folder being opened to show the quarter inside. I attached this to the outside of the plastic page protector so that the reader can open it to view the quarter. I also used the Creative Memories Circle Cutter to create a double border for the round Chickasaw Nation Seal, and a jagged edge tearing tool to create the right border.

Recently, for most of my scrapbook creations I have also created videos that show me putting them together and talking about the experiences as well as the techniques that I am using. So please enjoy watching this spread being created and assembled:
