Utah adventure

As ALL my friends know by now (yawn you say!) I am off on an adventure in a weeks time with Dawn Silver!
Salt Lake City for 5 nights then Park city for another 5 as a guest of Stampin Up!
Can't wait to combine my hobby with a girly holiday!! 
Thank you very much to my lovely friend Dawn for asking my to be her guest on this trip of a lifetime!
As my SU buddies know - swapping is part of all get togethers and this is no exception. As I am only a guest I helped Dawn design and make her swaps for the stampin up incentive trip swap.
I will not show you our final design. Wouldn't want to spoil the surprise lol!!
These are two of the samples we made and rejected .

Just for you!

Just wanted to share this card I made for a recent class.
I am just loving hexagons and doilies at the moment!
This card is now going to a special Teacher as a thank you:)

My "this and that book"

I recently bough the EPIC DAY bundle from Stampin Up! And plan to use it as a travel journal to record my adventures in Utah with my fantastic friend Dawn! Can't wait - its only 6 weeks till we go!!
I plan to show you my journal as I make it. I am going to design my front cover today. It needs to be quite flat as I am planning to take my album on my travels with me!
If you want to buy any of the items I am using just contact Dawn - she can be found here

After an awful lots of "faffing"  I decided on a very simple cover.  I want it to be robust and not too easily damaged on my travels.
