Entries in my Faux Traveler's Journal

Speaking of the cards in the kits that
 tell what month said kit is - are in my faux journal.
It's actually the most consistent thing in the journal and
since we were gone from June through mid-September the
entries just have quick notes about our trip
using extra photos I had printed.
 I do need to make another entry pointing out the album
I put together while on the trip.
I'm also going to make an entry about the too
much stuff I took this time around as well so I restrain
myself for next time.
In fact, I bought a couple of 4x4 albums that I might use
or use a traveler's journal - for actual travel LOL!
Anyhoo, that's way in the future.

Birthday girl

When I got home from my wanderings I had 3 SC kits
waiting for me and one coming for September.
To make it more fun, SC had a mega sale that I went
crazy on, so now I'm overwhelmed with all these new products.
With all that it only took several days and multiple changes 
I put a page together. Woohoo!
 The above bike has been in my stash for a long time
and I'm so glad I finally got it used.
 I love this paper - so much fun with its pop art feel.
Amelia got to pick out her own bike and because she has 
2 older brothers, she decided she needed a bike
that reflected that.
She's rolling with the big boys now.
Love it.
No fru fru girlie bike for her.
So in being overwhelmed with so many kits and new stuff
I somehow lost track of which kit was what month.
Actually, I lost track when I took the cards out to use in
my Faux Traveler's Journal, therefore, since I
couldn't figure out what month a kit was (except for Sept)
I decided it'd be fun to toss everything all together 
and roll from there. 😐😐😐
Needless to say that made it even more overwhelming.

Tag Album

Not really sure what to call it.
However, I had these tags rolling around for a long time.
So long in fact, that I couldn't tell you where they came from.
I'm thinking maybe Creative Cafe.
Shades of wayback when.
 I just used whatever I had laying around that may or may no
work with anything else.

Now I need to decide what to do with it.
Random photos?
A theme of photos?
just journaling
 (I do have a white pen and alphas).
Or gift it.
Any thoughts?

Of course there's a pre hurricane page

I apologize for the photo quality - there's shutters up
and it's like being in a bat cave so it
kind of threw me off my game.
Change is good right?
Anyway, took pix of the house readied for Irmageddon,
and it was very calming cutting and pasting.
I even got to use my 2 new stamps - a pineapple and flamingo.
You'll be seeing a lot of them 'till I get over them.
Seriously, the waiting is the worst.

Redoing an ugly page

So prior to leaving on our 3 month vacation I did this page.
Not only did I do it ONCE,
I did it TWICE.
The same way, the same colors.
Who does that? LOL... Twice - shows I
totally needed a vacation,
And its beyond ugly.
 So, I shuffled it aside and knew that I'd redo it.
I really would've liked the same paper so we could
go for a third try but I wasn't quick enough
to snatch it up at Studio Calico.
One of the first things I did after hurricane prep was
redo this page.
I liked the other stuff on the page so I basically
cut off the yellow checked paper
and glued the entire piece on this pink paper
that is actually more fitting because I think at one
time my gram actually had wallpaper like that.
Studio Calico, Tim Holtz, Buttons galore
