Ireland... in photos

No one every told me homeschooling will suck away all my personal ME time. Dog-gonit! Dagnabbit! Dad-gummit!

But... we're still having fun. :)

And I finally got the Ireland book scanned in and ready to share! :) Feast your eyes on this monster creation! :)

Page 10b - this is just a shot of what it looks like when some of the pages are flipped over. there are a few inked tags separating the pages with some little mini Irish themed stickers... the nice little turquoise post it tags will be replaced with white journaling cards that have been stamped with lines. (I forgot to do that...oops)

Anyway...that's the jist of it... there are journaling pages and such in the book but who wants to see those? LOL... blank pages with none of her awesome photos on them. No thanks!

Hopefully this will give someone some inspiration about doing a travel book for someone (or themselves.)

Anywho- between scrapping and homeschooling... that's been my life lately. :) will catch up when I can.
