Apron Strings Birthday Party Day #14: do something new to you on your layout. I decided to go far outside of my comfort zone and make a scrapbook page without photos. I've made mini books without photos before, but they were all gifts and I knew the pages would have photos later. This time I wanted more of a cover page, where I could have a pocket for all the journaling I did during the trip (as I left my travel journal at home). I think this is also the first time I have so much journaling in one page, not that you can see it....
Eyelet Outlet & Brads. I marked the towns we visited with Queen&Co. rhinestones. The map is from Rick Steves' Italy 2010, which I do not recommend if you are traveling with small kids. The guides we ended up using were: Frommer's Northern Italy with Your Family and Open Road's Italy With Kids.
I also wrote a post on my other blog last year about traveling with toddlers, in case you are interested.
Thanks for stopping by!
