The Story: Our trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. This was truly a pilgrimage for me — I’d wanted to go so much since I was a kid and and I was thrilled to be there even if it was raining! We spent so much time on Liberty Island that I was burned out and didn’t take that many pics at Ellis Island, but we still enjoyed our visit there.
Inspiration: None (again!). Just like the Museums layout, I just wanted to get everything on the page.
The National Park Service Map: Yes, my nemesis as I mentioned before are these maps. I needed to include it whole because inside it had a cross-section of the statue. It wasn’t map-like like the Yosemite map I cut up earlier.
Layered Tickets: I have two tickets for everything. Sometimes, like with football tickets, I include one. Sometimes I want to include them both. For this layout, I used both but glued the top of the second one to the first one using Zips.
It’s All Emma Lazarus Here: The page really needed an extra something, so I wrote out the last five lines of her famous poem, The New Colossus, and added them to both pages.
