As we say in Hawaii... Aloha Friday everyone! Also TGIF or FriYAY or whatever it is they like to say when the weekend finally arrives in your neck of the woods. I am back on the blog today with a quick post to share a couple of traveler's notebook layouts using the October Girl Tribe Traveler's Notebook Kit.
One of my favorite things about this kit is the full packet of stickers from the Shimelle Glitter Girl collection that it contains! There are 8 sticker sheets included just in that one component of the kit. It contains an alphabet, washi tape strips, cardstock stickers -I mean its jam packed and even comes with a cute little folder to store them in. I am sure I will be using it far beyond this month!
This is the first page of my May traveler's notebook. I do jump around a little bit in my traveler's notebook inserts. I try to assign one insert to each month of day to day pictures, but I don't necessarily scrap them in order or use only one kit per monthly insert. I also don't sweat it much if I never get to the last page of the insert before starting the next one. Are you someone who makes "rules" for yourself --or are you like me and just let yourself be free and go with the flow of the mojo?
Somehow I completely forgot to mention my favorite add on of the month in the reveal newsletter....these individual Prima Watercolor paint refills. A while back we carried the full Prima watercolors sets, and mine was starting to run low in my favorite colors. I used these paints to just play around in creating the background of this page. Whatever color or color(s) you order, they are guaranteed to work with the October kit!
It may be hard to read the journaling on this layout and I just have to tell you guys the cute story behind it. My 11 year old daughter knew that the birthday boy didn't really like sweets like cake, but she was determined to bake him something to celebrate his 50th birthday. When he told her, "I don't want a cake!" she replied, "I know, I'll make cupcakes." It was just so cute- her little genius moment thinking she really figured it out. (Newsflash Gigi...cupcakes ARE cake LOL.) Needless to say- he ate a cupcake.
And that's a wrap for today! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!--xGia
