Exploring Houston

Another layout from FNCE 2013 (Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo)

The Holiday Inn Express was only two blocks from the Expo, so every break I had, I'd meet Bob to tour downtown Houston.  Across from the Convention Center was Discovery Green with sculptures, greenery, a pond, fountains and weekend activities.  We walked by City Hall, the Public Library and onto Sam Houston Park, where historical homes had been relocated.  One day while I was in educational sessions, Bob went out with only his macro lens to study details.  2013

I had one piece of the beautiful Webster's Paper map paper.  For the background, I scanned the one sheet, then reduced the opacity to 60%.  I printed both pages on cardstock.  For page 2, I "flipped the page horizontally" so that it lined up in the center:

I added 3 wooden embellishments from Momenta:
 Have a great weekend. . . we gain an hour sleep Sunday!
