HIMCR #212a Blogiversary

HIMCR #212a Blogiversary - Let's Scrapbook!!

First of the Blogiversary Celebration!!!

The sponsor is HIMCR!

The giveaway is A Space Party Cartridge!
This is the first of 3 postings I have for today, when this goes live on blogger I will have just returned from a two week trip to visit my BFF Renee from: Plum  Renee and I have known each other for more years than we want to think about.
Renee has a booth at the: HOOT she does some amazing tole painting patterns, cutouts, etc. She has always been a very talented artist even when we were youngsters in school. I will be assisting Renee as much as I can at the Hoot.

I'm not really into this new journal craze that has hit the paper crafting world but decided that it would be a good idea to have one along for my trip.
All of the papers except for the solid colors are from DCWV's La Boutique Vintage Stack. Most of the icons are from Cricut's Pack Your Bags Cartridge.

I cut the tabbed dividers with Cricut's From My Kitchen Cartridge, the butterfly on this page is from Zva Creative.

I have lined papers to make memorable notes on and small envelopes from my stash to put small mementos into. I have also added some decorative paper clips but not sure if I'll take them on the plane or not.

This icon is from Cricut's Southwest Cartridge.

I will be flying from Vegas to North Carolina on 7-31 then on 8-3 Renee and I will be driving from South Carolina to Columbus, Ohio. For as many years as we have known each other, this will be our very first road trip together.

This section will be from the time we are at the HOOT, the letters are from the same stack, I backed them with some black to help them to stand out on the page.

This icon is from Cricut's Disney Tinkerbell and Friends Cartridge, I added a couple of Imaginisce jewels to it and left room to put one of the many pictures I hope to take of Renee and I during the trip under the icon. This section is for the time we will be spending together at Renee's house after the HOOT.

I HATE to fly, I'm TERRIFIED of flying so any flight is a long one.

Here is the back cover. I used my Cinch to bind the journal and added some ribbons and charms to the wire to dress it up a bit.

Entering this into this challenge:
