Travel Log

I have been inspired by Michelle Wooderson's mini travel album. She has the best ideas and I love her projects and her etsy shop. You might know her as Mish of the blog, Mish Mash. Anyway, she was showing her darling little project which inspired me to make my own...all creative credit goes to her...

My "Log" is about 6x8 inches. The covers are sturdy cardboard covered with Craft Cardstock. I used cream and beige acrylic paint to "spatter" the covers and also brush the edges. A smaller cardstock adorns the front with 'Enjoy the Journey' stamped in black. I also added a butterfly, stamped a pointing finger and cute clothespin.

On the inside of the front cover, I added a sticky note pad for jotting down thoughts and events on the trip. I also added a pocket filled with stamped tags and a few embellies to add later.

My first page is taken from an old atlas and is a map of Tennessee ( where we will be traveling.) I stamped a few words here and there and added craft cardstock to document the miles we travel, cost of gas, vehicle we were driving (with a pic), so that we can remember it all years from now.

I have several pages in the album and will share more later. I also used lots and lots of paperclips and other accessories along the way to add things as we go. I made a similar album for my sweet niece, Amber, over at the Country Scrapper. I am thinking that her mom has forgotten to give it to her because she hasn't mentioned it once and I know that she would have if she had gotten it...*cough*cough* LOL, I am sure that I will find out its whereabouts now!

Hope that you have a great day!

A Very Cool Place

Here's an LO of a recent beautiful spot in Virginia we stumbled upon while hiking in Natural Tunnel State Park! It reminded me so much of my childhood that I had to capture it! The page takes me there...if only in memory.

Hope your Sunday has been fabulous!

365 Card Challenge

Hi friends....I have been painfully slacking in posting in the blog world this summer, but I still visit YOUR blogs daily! I have a quick post today for the 365 Card Challenge "Vintage and Pink". I love the soft, gentle colors of cream and pink together...and the vintage Prima flower...perfect!

I often play along with 365, but just happened to have the day off work and have time to create the card, photograph the card and post the card! Ahhhh...the life!
Hope you're having a Wonderful day wherever you are!
