Tuesday Treasures

Tuesday Treasures day and a huge thank you to those who are playing along.

Well following my last TT post when I had seen a smash book made by Sylvia, I have pulled out all the stops and made one for TT this week. In fact I have started another 4 as well lol.

Beware photo heavy - cos I have made lots of double page spreads and added lots of small pages, tags and labels etc.

This is going to be my holiday travel book. I usually come home with a bag full of memorabilia that I have collected and then I don't find any time to scrap any of it. So this time I will be taking my book and glue stick and come home with a book on the way to being completed with the memories of my trip.

The pages were all made by cutting down 12 x 12 papers and card. I have inked, masked and stamped in places and then bound everything together with my Bind-It-All adding in my tags, labels and smaller pages.

I will add titles, pockets and more embellishing as I complete sections, but at the moment I have the structure of the Smash Book made and in the process of making more for the girls as well.

I hope you like my treasure this week.
If you would like to play along and share your treasured piece with me just link your entry below and please also backlink to this post so others can find it too. The last date for entry is Monday 25th June at 7.30 pm BST.
This is a 'for fun' challenge and a blog hop so that if you take the html code and insert it into your entry post it will show up on the posts of others who enter too. Then we are sharing our wonderful pieces with a much wider audience.

Fabulous book Brenda and a very clever idea to scrap as you go. I have two folders full of stuff collected from trips to France and Italy - never seem to have the time to do anything with them. I have some of those papers as well - Costco?
