Family Vacation Mini - YMH dt project

Happy Monday fellow crafters..  I started a family vacation mini a few weeks ago and have been show casing the pages every Monday as my design team project for Your Memories Here..

I'm loving this Windsor stack  (its on sale by the way) I got from YMH, it has some amazing papers inside, most of them are embossed with golds, browns, blacks and purples.. plus, I don't have to worry about coordinating cardstock cause it comes with that as well.. Making my job a whole lot easier :)..

I got the cover done yesterday and just went a little crazy with the gold stickles..LOL 

I cut a piece of clear plastic that was actually a cover to one of my paper stacks, what a way to recycle..
I then took a stamp and some black ink, stamped on the edges with a floral print.. covered the middle with some of the paper from the Windsor Collection, found the chipboard title in my stash of goodies, added some purple hydrangeas, little white roses and green leaves.. final touches, I added some drops with gold stickles and some Prima E-Line gems..

For the first pages on the inside: 
For this page I added some of the big roses that came in my Prima Grab bag, plus some of the mini purple roses, which accented nicely with the bigger ones.. I also added some leaves, which I dabbed with some gold paint.. I did stamp the edges of the pages with and edge stamp: Architectural Trims by Tattered Angles. which I then added some white pearl drops to accent them..

for this page, I added some journaling tags which I have written on, but since I'm not to happy with hand writing, I will keep them hidden..LOL  Here you can see more of the mini roses, leaves and the stamped trim.

After we were on the road for two days, we finally reached out destination. Dubuque, Iowa..  Our kids were so tired but we got them up early so we could head off to meet their relatives.. I once again used the purple hydrangeas, white mini roses and leaves.. I also used E-line pearls for the middle of the flowers..

and finally this is one of the last pages I have done (for now), still have a few to go.. and yes, my daughter is flicking me the bird..LOL  I kept telling her to smile at the camera, remind you this is about 6am after we drove for two days from Florida to Iowa.. She wasn't very happy..LOL  I covered her little gesture with a chipboard sticker..LOL    My boys are on the little clear acetate sheet I added in the middle.. 

All right then fellow crafters, thats my Monday post for this week.. Do stop by next week and I'll have a video walk through of the whole finished album.. 
Thank you all for stopping by today and checking out what I've been creating..
