Oke now here we go with this weeks challenge.......

When I heard the word Travel,  immediately the thought of a Travel Book popped up in my brains..... when your on a Journey you can write ALL of your adventures in it.

I started out with The Tim Holtz Embossing folder, worked on it with Vintage Photo, Bundled Sage, Forest Moss and Weathered Wood.

For the inside of the Book the wonderfull clearstamp sets from The Tim Holtz couldn't be missed, so I have used the Journey and Flights of Fancy. The sentiment is worked on with embossingpowder.

I have made a few different flowers and on top of them I placed the  Glossy Accents with Distress Crackle Paint, that gives such a special look. I just love it.....

From 7 Gypsies the clearstamp set Steampunk was worked with.The sentiment is from the Artistic Outpost, Lovely Day.

Don't you just love this butterfly......I do hehehe.....and the sentiment, it is absolutely true...yep.....and from upclose I hope you are able to see that it is heatembossed...

The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Odds and Ends....and the fabulous bird offcourse from The Tim Holtz The Journey....wohoooo

This Mill is from the stamps of the Artistic Outpost and the border is made with the Martha Stewart Punch.....The flower is made the same way as the other flowers in my post...and the beautifull bird is from The Tim Holtz Flights of Fancy.....I embossed it with the Copper Embossingpowder, to give it that special look.

And offcourse The Wendy Vecchi's Just Flutterby Butterfly had to be worked with. I just love the Just Flutterby Butterfly, you can do so many things with this little cutie.  For the background I once again embossed it with the embossingfolder from The Tim Holtz....

And here is another flower that was build up with a nestie, glossy accents, distress crackle paint and a spacer on top.

So here is the front of the Travel Book,it took me a long time to put it all together but I am pretty pleased with it....I hope you like it too....
Tthe stamps that I have used on the front of the book are from the Artistic Outpost, Lovely Day. Just reminds me of Holland with the bicycle and the girl, so I thought I would use these fabulous guys what do you think.....You wanna join into the post?
