My first trip out of the states to attend my daughter's Destination Wedding in April. And here is my first page to my book that I have started for myself (a book for me - can you believe that ?) I picked up this old World Atlas awhile back from a thrift store for $1.00 and this is the first page I used from it for the background paper of Jamaica and distressed the edges/ sections of the map. I also would like to point out the cute Passport that I made which opens up to journal on and the suitcases cut from the cartridge Going Places, a tag and some infor about the country- all the other embellies are stickers, which I purchased in a pack.
The other couple in the pic( im sitting behind them) are good friends of mine that went with me to attend my daughter's wedding- I have known Laura since we were 4 years old- she is my oldest and dearest friend- so we all had a good time. On our bus trip to the Sandals resort from Montego Bay to Ocho Rios we stopped for a drink/cocktail at this establishment which was 3 feet on the main road- such a different culture and ways of living here-but very beautiful sites of the ocean.
I'm a mother of 4 wonderful children ranging from age 23 to 29. I love spending time with my 2 adorable American Eskimo dogs,I work part-time, bowl 2 x a week and love to travel whenever possible.I started scrapbooking in January of 2008 and have gone crazy with this craft.I love to work with papers and make my own embellishments and I LOVE to SCRAP whenever possible- And so excited to be a Grandma to one grandson and another grandchild is due this August....I'll keep busy with all kinds of baby projects and scrapbooks now.
