traveling right…and light with a mini July 5, 2007

20 days to go till I jump on the plane and head on over to Denver, Colorado.  I hate to fly and start getting nervous around this time when flying is in the near future.  So, to distract me, I will be starting a mini scrapbook ahead of time to take with me on my travels.  I recommend this!  I have so many pics of past vacations laying around and haven’t starting  scrapbook pages for them.

Last September, my husband and I took  a trip to Bermuda.  I made this mini scrapbook ahead of time to keep me motivated.   It was so nice to have this mini book…it fit in my purse and I took notes along the way of our journeys.  Came back to reality and had a partially finished book (only had to add pics).

I will be starting my mini scrapbook for my convention travels today.  We are flying into Denver from Baltimore.  After convention is over, we will hop in a Jeep and sightsee Colorado, Utah, and Arizona…and fly home out of Phoenix.  So excited cause I haven’t been to this part of the country. 

I will definitely post my mini scrapbook when completed.  It is going to be a challenge due to not having the “right stamp sets yet” to make this.

Book: 7 Gypsies.  It has mini manilla folders inside to hold tags/papers/receipts.

    I just pretty much copied & pasted the same blurb from the girl who tagged me, then added the 7 random things about me. Refer to this post if you need to again:

    And I can’t believe you stay up late like I do!
