Journey - mini album

A few weeks ago I spent a lovely afternoon in the company of some French scrappeuses 
where we all made a fabulous little mini album under the direction of Marie-Nicolas,
 a great teacher, demonstrator, blogger
and member of so many DT's it would take me to long to mention!

The "Road Trip" kit that Ma-Ni provided was sensational,
all we had to take along were several pieces of card cut from a cereal box 
and the usual kit of glues, cutters, hole punch etc.

The aim during the afternoon was to assemble the album, 
do some embossing using Ma-Ni's Big Shot, some machine sewing 
and to avail ourselves of her amazing collection of stamps. 

Photographs and other embellishments were to be added at our leisure at home.

My idea was to create a souvenir book of our trip to Italy this past April
but I think it went a lot further than that 
as I embellished, added tags, extra inserts and other "stuff" from my stash.

I know there's a lot of photo's and a lot to take in,
 but the eagle eyed among you may have noticed that I haven't shown you pages 2 & 3. 
There's a reason for that and all will be revealed in my next post 
that will feature my first It's Crafting Time DT assignment!
Hope you'll come back to see those missing pages, soon.
