Today the priority is cooking as we are having the neighbors in and I had to make some hors d'oevres .  
Yesterday added the additional signatures and stitched into sleeve binding of travel journal,  so I have a double double diamond design.  Sounds like a beer from UK!!

some of the signature
 this is actually a pocket

to the left a menus from a Chicago restaurant and a map pocket on right.  I stamped the red design onto white tape on the edge of the pocket.

 Digi pages to left with pocket.
 more pages
and on the right a bag made in to pocket.

 One of the added signatures, a favorite

left pafe is printed kitty vellum and right a pocket.

Back page, added Tylenol pack!

More pages

OK that's enough, back to the party.

More fun tomorrow.

    I've resolved the problem of not being able to upload pics from my pc by installing Google Chrome.
    Love your journal.
    I had a little chuckle when I read the opening sentence as I read it as 'Today the priority is cooking as we are having the neighbors' - as though you were cooking the neighbours' haha.
