China Blue Journal

As soon as Sarah from the Fruit Pixie sent me the new Ruby Rock it China Blue paper I knew I would make my holiday journal with it. The whole collection reminded me of Austria and the Gumunden pottery I collect which is blue and white.

It also gave me a chance to use some of the hand carved stamps I have made recently. I had always wanted an edelweiss flower stamp but the chances of finding one was zilch, so I found a photo we had taken of a wooden one, traced it and carved it. I must admit I was so pleased with way they looked. The journal one is one of mine too!

All the pages in my 6x6 journal are the same, somewhere to write and somewhere to store all the goodies like bus tickets, leaflets etc. Of course another chance to use another one of my stamps too!!

So here it is all done, now all I need to do is pack! My journal and stamp carving tools are coming along too of course!
