another sneak

Happy friday Sassy fans!

It's the friday prior to our blog hop - and I know you're all as excited as we are. So have your cup of coffee ready tomorrow morning and hop along!
To give you something to look at until then I am sharing another sneak peak with you.
This cutie is called

Travel Lite.

So of course it inspired me to make something travelling related.
This isn't a card but a little book. The inside is made from envelopes (not decorated yet as I don't know which pictures I'll put in). Those can be filled with tags, photos, letters and notes... Whatever you think is worth being kept from this vacation.

I gave this album the shape of an old suitcase. The corners are rounded but then I decided to use some punched corners instead. And I went through my stash to make even the embellishments travel related. I had that Sizzix die of the car for ages and it was just sitting there, waiting for a project like this.
All those stamps are by Stampin'Up and I put one of them on a little tag so it looks like the name tag on a real suitcase.
The street sign is by Quickutz and I bought it from a friend that never used it. It came in very useful here! I guess there is no real sign looking like this regarding what I put on it but I couldn't leave it plain, right? LOL

These are the markers that I used for the coloring:

And before I am going to say goodbye till tomorrow I am going to share another photo of my twins. Since a few asked me to show a pic of them with their little school cones I've been sharing last week. So, here you go:

It was very very early in the morning and they really weren't in the mood for taking pictures that time so sorry for their faces. It's not that they didn't like the cones (they loved them!) - it was just the fact of me taking a picture.LOL

See you all tomorrow!

Your girls are beautiful (even with the slightly glum faces :()and I am sure they had fun showing off their cones - what a fabulous idea - the UK is WAY behind with cultural things like this - so wished we lived somewhere where traditions were the 'in' thing!
