A couple of weeks from now we will be on the warm sandy beaches of Maui, in Hawaii.
I wanted to make a mini album to journal in while we are gone.
I actually had one on hand that I had made a few years back when Heidi Swapp came here for a weekend retreat.
This is what I started with:
And this is what it looks like now. The aloha and maui were cut with Quickutz fonts
The travel I had cut on my Silhouette.
And the turtle is a Memory Box die
The first page in I put a map of where we are going with a frame around it.
Both are cut files from my Silhouette. I have used the map of Hawaii a few times now.
Also a couple of stamps from Ali Edwards.
And this is the next page. The hibiscus is a Memory box die. That page used to have a butterfly, but I thought a hibiscus was more appropriate. Will continue to work away on this and will take some stamps and die cuts with me when we go. And will use this to journal our trip.
And yesterday was so beautiful. We had a high in the 70's. I got out and vacuumed my car and wiped the inside down while Curtis did his blood drive to Missoula. Kirsten had her kitchen filled with Girl Scout cookies on Thurs. evening. So, have been slowly getting those sold to people I work with.
And have worked a few hours, so that means $$ for our vacation. Also heard from Canada Pension Plan and I actually qualify to get money from them since I worked in Canada for a number of years before I got married and moved to the states. Puts a smile on my face.
