Celebrate the Journey



Celebrating the Journey...that's what I'd like my parents to do while they are on a 2 month adventure to Australia and New Zealand.  My mom always takes a journal with her while travelling so that she can write down her favorite parts or great stories etc.  So when I remembered that My Favorite Things has the set, Going Places, I had to have it!!!  I had hoped it would arrive on time for when I was Mercy's Guest Muse (I thought that the last sketch - MTSC89 would have been perfect for this set).  But as Murphy's Law goes.... it arrived a couple of days later....  Oh well!!!

I bought the journal from Home Sense (it's Canada's equivalent to TJ Maxx or Marshall's but it's all home furnishing etc) because I knew it would be big enough to hold a lot of memories. I've watercolored parts of the image with my Tombow Markers and then paper pieced the rest.  If you don't look closely, you won't noticed that I had stamped the map upside down.....  I guess that's what my mom will be like!!!  hehehehe....  The majority of the DP is from Thrift Shop - October Afternoon.  I really like how the journal turned out and just thought I'd let you know that my mom absolutely loved it!!!
