Travel Mate

Hello Friends,

When we travel we do reflect on our life and many things which we go through .. I carry a few sheets of paper and some pens whenever I travel .. I keep it inside the pages of a Novel I carry along . But this time I felt it needs a small case where I can keep everything .

Hence I have recycled a box. ( I do not have the picture of it before the make over as I was not sure how it wouldturn out ) .

With the onset of Online shopping we end up with loads of cardboard boxes .. Usually its proper box shape with varying size .. This time when I ordered a book online , it came in a box which made me feel it could convert to a Box Case (something kind of luggage Suitcase) ..
I am planning to keep a Diary or few sheets of Paper in it , so that I can take it with me in  my Travel and write down my reflections..

I decorated it with a Bird Chipboard . Heat Embossed it with Lindy's - Terra cotta Rust , Ranger's - Buttercup & Fern Green . Surrounded it with few flowers and 2 Red Pollens . These Pollens remind me of Lollipops :) Doesnt it ???

So happy with the outcome that am eager to travel again , so that I can flaunt my Travel Mate ..

Regards ,

  4. This is such a good idea...I know exactly what you mean about "before" photos...nothing worse when you take all the photos, make a wrong cut and its ruined, I've done that many times.
