20 Years of Trucks - Journaling


Made with PSP X2, on a PC, with Win 7


I used several techniques from Ro's Scrapbook Software Secrets Revealed. One that I used, was #19 - Text Effects, which I used to colour the outer frame of the photo matt.

Dear Diary


On the next page are a few of the trucks that we


have owned during the past twenty years. The


trucks have changed over the years, not only


because of the make and mechanical specs,


but because of the cosmetics and extras. These


three photos, show the biggest changes in the


trucks we've owned.


In the first photo is a Western Star with a single


bunk. You had to crawl through a space, much


like a wide window, into the bunk. Once you


were in there, it was comfortable enough to


sleep, but there wasn't much room to manouver.


The second truck was also a Western Star, but it


had a raised roof on the bunk and was double


deep, with a doorway, instead of a window. You


could actually walk into the bunk, by ducking a


little. It was great to be able to pull the curtains


across and stand to get changed.


The third truck is a long nose Peterbilt. It was


Ron's dream come true. It's wheel base was


longer than that of the any truck we had in the


past. There's even more room in the cab and in


the bunk to stand and move around. It even has


the flat steel bumper, instead of a curved one,


with the holes in it.


It should have been traded a few years ago, but


the long nose is a thing of the past, so we held


onto it. There isn't enough time left now to make


another purchase, because Ron wants to retire


and a purchase takes from three to five years.


Ron has driven to or through every province in


Canada, except British Columbia and every State,


on the North American continent, south of the


Canadian border. As you can see in the first photo,


I used to drive with him, prior to having my heart


attack. I haven't gone to as many places as he, but


have enjoyed the places that I've seen.

Sensational! Love the blended truck photo and the grungy feel to the pages, great journaling and what a story! Really nice job on the text effect frame, super choices of embellishments which are unexpected and thoughtful. Love it!
