hello, hello! it's spring, isn't that wonderful? i saw that another snow storm is going to land on the eastern part of us tonight, but they sound like maybe it won't be so bad after all? i hope it will be not so big and your days warm up and you'll be able to lift your face to the sun. we've had lots of rain, but yesterday sun, sun, sun. it did feel good.
anyway, here we go; a new portfolio travel journal called "traveler". i love these papers from tim holtz, very cool travel vintage.

thank you for looking! i am just finishing a beach storybook travel journal and should be uploading photos either tonight or tomorrow morning, be sure and return and take a peek.
i would like to thank you all for your kind comments(which i am way behind in answering, sorry) and emails. i truly love creating these journals and love the idea that you feel inspired to create one for yourselves! repurpose those classic, much used, broken, old books - making sure they are not first additions- keep creating! -rebecca
