365 #221


After spending the day looking after a sick Rosie and all that came with that, it was lovely when they were tucked up in bed and I dug out an unfinished project. In September 2008 Chris & I went to New York for a few days and as you can imagine came back with one or two photo's. Luckily (or not) I didn't have my canon at the time. Anyway, I've had the this book ready to go and photo's printed off for months, so last night I sat down and just got on with it. It's not quite finished but it's a lot closer than it was.

The blank book is a 7 Gypsies one and I've distressed the pages and stamped on them. 99.9% of the journaling is handwritten. Pockets in the book hold extra maps, tourist guides and tickets from the trip.

Wow - this is a fantastic book - I hate to call it a mini book as it looks a really huge size! I love it - you have put so much work into it. Our trip to new York was in my pre scrapping & pre digital days and it just a photo album - this is so much better.
