This is the final group hanging together. Each map page has a special significance to my husband or myself. Each mode of transportation...not so much. I did however try and match up the transportation with a map that might give it some meaning.
Transportation: Rocket Ship
Houston is where we became a family. It's where we currently call home and where my boys were born. Obviously a rocket ship is fitting for Houston. This city is home to NASA.
The city in which I was born is visible and I grew up in the Denver metro area. My husband also spent a few years as a kid in the Denver metro area (back in the days before we knew each other). The car is intentionally facing East, because we both met each other out East.
Map: Cape Cod
Cape Cod is where some of my husband's family lives (I totally love that!). I love the beach, ocean, fishing, lighthouses, etc and we have been lucky enough to vacation there a few times.
Map: Western New York
I spent a lot of my time growing up in Western New York. I just wish that I could have gotten Syracuse to be on the same page. Syracuse was right in the crease, so there was no great way to save it. My husband and I met each other while attending Syracuse University. There is no real significance with the helicopter other than Maben recently got to sit in one.
In order to make the pieces of transportation I pulled out my Cricut (I know, I'm so old school compared to all those with a Silhouette). Some of the pieces were from Cricut cartridges, while some were not. The helicopter was done with nothing but odd shapes put together. All in all, I love how this turned out and am thinking of possibly doing a few more framed up to add to this collection. I can always do a truck, airplane, bicycle/motorcycle, etc.
