It took about a week, but I finished this journal page on 23 December 2011. Amanda posted a prompt in the Artful Scrapping Outside the Box challenge at which said in part: "Think of creating your custom curio cabinet- and just like you would in your house, you fill it with things that are important to you- each for their own reason." So, as I worked on this page I focused on the curio cabinet rather than the larger theme of curiosity.

As I was thinking about the things that are important to me, I thought of my current passions—reading, travel, and scrapbooking. So, I filled my cabinet with my passport, a map, and some of the books I've enjoyed this year.
