Nautical Tag! A trip to the Joco Marina! Sunshine Yellow DoubleClick Skittles Showcase Color!

Hello Crafty friends! I had a few minutes between loads of laundry and decided to work on my Costa Rica Travel journal! I printed some of my photos 1"X2" because I had so many photos and my book is pretty small. I just want little reminders of my trip so I am happy with some little ones that don't have photos of us in them.

While visiting friends in Joco they brought us to see a beautiful marina, I think it was Los Suenos. There was so much to see while there and we tried to squeeze so much in that we ended up missing our bus back to Manuel Antonio, then is started down pouring on us while we waited the hour for the next bus! But it was worth it! I really enjoy walking around marina and wish we had more time to spend there.

Here is a tag made just for that little excursion that will fit right into my journal!

My tag was cut using the Crocs Rule Cricut Cartridge
The sun was cut using the DoodleCharms Cricut Cartidge
All the papers are from a Mambi Kit called travel.
Yellow Stickles, Recollections embellishments, Puffy heart stickers,
Tim Holtz labels, Liquid Pearls, Ribbons

I Lied about being the Outdoors type!! A page from my Costa Rica travel journal! Alligator Bridge! Oregano DoubleClick Skittles Showcase Color!

Hello Crafty friends!

Today I worked on a project life card for my Costa Rica Scrapbook. When I initially put my book together I knew it had to be small because I was traveling with it so the majority of my book is made up of Project Life cards.  I then added things that I collected while on the trip, like dollies, napkins, maps and business cards. I just printed all my photos and will slowly be putting them into place. 

While in Costa Rica we visited Alligator bridge which was just that, a bridge you walked over with VERY low railings and beneath you on both sides... hundreds of alligators! This is a top spot for eco-tourism. 

 I added the hearts because I LOVED Costa Rica and all of my pages will have them!
This was the perfect set of stickers for this page: I lied about being the outdoors type!  

Alligator is cut with Crocs Rule Cricut Cartridge
I pulled the project life card plus the paper embellishments from my stash
Puffy heart stickers are from Wal-mart
Stickles, liquid pearls, Mini heart Die

Travel the world Tag! Update about Balance and LIFE!

Hello Crafty friends! Once again I am trying to balance all the things I want to do, I set up yet another schedule for myself so that I have some time to enjoy life and not just "survive" it! With so many changes happening in our lives, I can't help but become over whelmed and then I end up in circles accomplishing nothing. I need to schedule all the things I need/want to do including the fun stuff, like crafting! With Cross country season just weeks away I want to make sure I am actively finding ways to manage it all.  Fingers crossed I will be successful!

Anyways, I pre-made a traveler's notebook/mini scrapbook and took it with me to Costa Rica. And actually journaled about my trip daily! Now I need little bits and pieces to put it all together. With a few blank spots I wanted to fill in, this tag fit perfectly!

I used nothing but my Cuttlebug for this one! 

Paper from Heidi Sonboul Special Delivery
Crate paper and fringe scissors
Ribbon from my scrap ribbon pile
Doily from DoodleBugs
Gems, Tim Holtz Tiny word stickers
