Finally, finished my Colorado Travel Memories and cleared my desk; now to dump all the paper as tomorrow we head out for Thanksgiving at Bentsen Palms RV Park in Mission TX.

here it is.  The idea comes from a You tube video by Steff Miller.  Using Prima Paper and embellishment she created a beautiful book.  Mine is a little different.  I have written this post 4 times and Blogger had a fit and DID It Its's way!!!!!

Spine and outside cover 


bend your neck as if in Yoga for this one!!! it is the fold out accordion book from page above.

ran out of steam for Pagosa Springs where we splashed around in the various hot water pools.  

Flap folded out.

Homeward bound and a last day in  a favorite place, Santa Fe NM

  11. I thought I'd commented about this wonderful book - but clearly only in my head! This is absolutely superb, I love all the flaps, pockets and travel ephemera from your trip. A really lovely memento :)


  12. How difficult was it to use the accordion to put your folio's in? I love your travel album. We will be on our way to the South West too in January of 2013, and it was fun to look at your journal. I wished I could have been in Santa Fe with you! One day. When hubby and me go live in New Mexico, you have to come and visit us and we need to do the back road between Taos and Santa Fe together... with a little stop in Trampas and Chamisal... And maybe Madrid... grin. Is there a way where I can see your pages bigger? See you in TTV...
