Travel Log
 Here's the second layout from my monthly Stamp N' Scrap Class.  I love the new Soho Subway designer series paper!  It might be tough to see but I stamped random images from the Clockworks stamp set all over the Early Espresso cardstock.  I mimicked that on the Starfruit tags as well. 

It's that time of the year. The kids are out of school and families begin to ponder their destination to 'getaway' from it all.  I created this page so that it wasn't location specific.  Lots of my customers are doing "stay-cations" and others are driving to their destinations and vacationing along the way.  Even with gas prices near $3.40 a gallon where I live it's still cheaper to drive than to fly when you have a family. 
I used the Top Note Bigz die to create this spot for the title. Some people opted to stamp the word "travel" and omit the "Log" so they could journal in this space.  "Travel" was created using Stampin' Up!'s new Photopolymer stamps.  Gosh I LOVE them!  They stick like crazy so creating a word on an acrylic block a breeze!
