Thursday 27 September 2012


 I have been playing with Distress Stains and making prototypes of a few projects on my to do list. I have almost finished my journal pages of my Holiday in Rome. I have uploaded 3 spreads below.

 This folio was made after I tried out a rough prototype. There are 4 pockets which hold tags and a band for the closure when it is folded up.
Every Wednesday but as in my case Thursday as I was so busy yesterday I forgot  to post pictures.
It is isn't too late to visit Julia's blog and do some snooping.
Have fun.
Please leave a comment and I will return the favour as well as visiting some different blogs myself.

Wow you went to Rome, I guess its close to your side of the planet, when it is far for us. I dont I can journal, it seems to take too much time and committment..hmm maybe someday

Hi Carol, great job on your scrapbook. I enjoyed making my scrapbook and it's still not finished! What I did was exchange my ATCs for ATCs that were travel themed. So I had little artworks in my pages. Blessings, patsy

Ah the Eternal City...must go there one day, especially as I studied Ancient History!! Been to other parts of Italy but never got to Rome..sigh. Your journal is looking fab, love all the pictures :D
The crop is the WOYWW get together on October 13th - it's taking place here in Wiltshire. Julia has advertised it a few times - we appreciate that it's a long way for folk to travel but we had to pick a venue somewhere :) If you want to come, email Julia who will be sending out info/directions etc etc soon.
Hugs, LLJ xxxx

Thanks for stopping by, Carol! I'm a bit late getting round to everyone as usual, but at least I'm here!

Be brave - hit the dominos with the drill bits, go on, you know you want to! I have yet to find a nice fine drill bit that is long enough to do the full length, but other than that I drill them every which way I can....!

Loving your Rome layouts - brings back memories of my visit there 11 years ago!

Hi Carol, thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello. Your folio looks like a wonderful way of journalling your travels, you can never use enough DI on projects.
