Today I'll be sharing my layout, which was inspired by a timeline calendar idea. It is centered around my family's trip on the Metrolink to Olvera Street, where my little guy changed from a 3 year old to a soulful musician.

When I saw the Vintage T Paperline, I immediately thought to a recent Metrolink Train Trip that we'd taken into Olvera Street, LA. I also liked the idea of keeping with the idea of a train schedule, so I mapped out our schedule in the form a time line...
I decided to hand stitch (Bazzill In'Stitchz) my timeline instead of printing one from my computer. I used a brown paper bag to highlight the timeline, I felt that it was rough enough for a masculine page. I also stamped a serged seam from the WeR "You Rock" stamp along the bottom edge of the paper bag. I cut .5" strips of white cardstock and hand wrote my times and what we were doing.
I added punched shapes, buttons and a penny to complete a cluster around the bottom corner of the photos from the timeline. I also added the "You Rock" cassette tag to my cluster.
I used a Jillibean Kraft Travel Tag to back my title and the WeR stickers to spell out the main word on my title.
That's it for me! I hope you like my calendar interpretation and feel inspired to try a timeline in one of your layouts! You could do it as a year in review, a month, a week... really anything!
We'll be back tomorrow with a card from Becky!
