I've been busy

For the last two days I have been working like a mad woman to complete a travel journal project for an upcoming trip my hubby and I will be taking. I found a cute idea using a Strathmore drawing pad as the basis for the book so that I would not have to worry about binding the materials.This was my "practice run" for the journal I will be creating with a baby theme in the next few months. Hope you enjoy looking as much as I will enjoy using, LOL!!!
