     Good morning Pinquettes! I am finally back from my cross country trip and ready to share a wonderful project as Guest Designer for the Pinque Peacock. Boy I sure wish I had planned this better and made one that was larger to handle all my brochures! Here is what I am talking about:

     This is an 8"x8" album that also serves as a journal. I wish I had made one taller and more narrow so it could fit the brochures and maps we collected of our trip. Yes, while my daughter, son in law and myself relied on our smart phones, my husband was more confident with a physical map. I have to admit that at times, he was more accurate!

     I have told you about all the goodies you get from the Crafty Kit Club that Jess offers. Well, the metal leaf, small mulberry flower and pearl dots came from the July Kit that Jess was kind enough to send me. I just love the metal leaf, It has a hole at the top so you could use it as a charm as well.

     I wanted to use this stamp but it just didn't pop until I found this epoxy frame in my stash and luckily the color matched perfectly! Once I added the flower the album looked complete.

     The inside has envelopes that I made to match the page which is a perfect pace to add a picture.

     I love to add a journal page to record all the highlights of your adventure. this actually is a year journal but would easily adapt to a Road Trip album where you could brochures, receipts and tickets from your trip.
     You can shop for the kits HERE. You get so many supplies that it is easy to create many projects.
     But wait..... there is still time to enter the Challenge for August (Sparkle and Bling). I am definitely going to enter this one. You can link up HERE.
     I hope you all have a wonderful week as the kiddos go back to school. That surely means more crafting for some, lol. You can also find more details about this project @ my blog.
