Live, travel...

It's been exactly two years since I started working on my Europe trip and as you can see, I'm still at it. LOL  This is the hubbs and yours truly in front of Buckingham Palace in 2008.
The pattern paper, except for the ledger paper, is from KaiserCraft's Check In collection.  The library pocket is a svg cut from Designs On Cloud 9, it holds a "tourist class" with my journaling on the backside.  This collection was released last Summer, you see I've been putting my pages on hold, waiting for the perfect paper to work with....that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
On the lower left, I used the mini Polaroid stamp by Latina Crafter, along with other stamp sets.  The flair button by Paper Play Studio.
I can't seem to find my memorabilia from the trip.  It's gotta be in one of the closets; I saved airline ticket stubs, itinerary and other fun stuff, as soon as I find it I will write in the date on the "boarding pass".

Birthday Flowers

Translation: Happy Birthday
My card was inspired by Jen's card in the LIM challenge blog.  This card is also for Paper Patch Craft's FB challenge, as listed below. 
I used Mi Flor Favorita {My Favorite Flower} by Latina Crafter.  The sentiment is from the newly released stamp set Las Mañanitas (a birthday set, sorry I dont' know how to translate that one! LOL).
