Mini Travel Journal

Hi Everyone,

This travel journal was made with the Crafty Annes challenge in mind where anything but a card was requested. I am also entering it into Charisma Cardz challenge where anything goes, Corrosive Challenge to clean up the dust (Ihave had this stamp for about 3 years and never used it and Papertake Weekly which is Animal Magic.

The image is a stamp I got from E Bay about 3 years ago and sadly it has no name on it. I stamped iit onto Stampbord which I coloured with an inkpad. The paper is Memories in the Making, Surfs Up. I used Cricut to cut the die cuts. Cartridges used were A Chuilds Year, Going Places, and Everyday Paper Dolls. Everything else is from my stash. The journal was put together using my Zutter Bind it all. I have shown the front and back of the journal.

Thanks for looking,
