Travel Adventure for Calico Craft Parts

Hi everyone and thanks so much for stopping by here today!
I am super excited as in about 3 weeks time I will be off to Australia for 7 weeks to spend time with my grandchildren. Today I am sharing a little travel album I made for the occasion.
Here is a sneak peek:
Full details can be found on the Calico Craft Parts blog, would love to know what you think...

Hello Dear Astrid,
What a gorgeous little travel journal you have made for your trip to Australia! It is such a sweet and small size to take with you.
It would be so wonderful to meet you here in my country but if my memory serves me well then it will be to Perth that you will be going???? Perhaps you can let me know. If so that will be like you living a million miles away! I live on the far south coast of Australia in New South Wales by the beach - in fact 8 k inland from the sea on a beautiful treed property on a small creek which runs through our property.
I'm sure you are getting very excited about the coming event and wish you a most wonderful time here
with your gorgeous grandchildren.

Love Chrissie xx

I have such wonderful memories of visiting Perth and Sydney - I would be beside myself with excitement if I were going again too! Your album is just perfect Astrid, beautifully vintage with lots of your wonderful finishing touches - I just love that vintage card and the galleon is pretty special too. Hugs, Anne xx

7 weeks with the grands will be awesome fun, I'm sure. And, 7 weeks in Australia would be amazing in and of itself.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
