More of the States Mini-album

Early this month, I shared a mini-album that I am making about the states we have been to visit. You can find that post HERE. Today I've got some of the inside pages to share with you.

This is the most recent page that I have made.  Illinois and in particular, Chicago.  Why did I do this page this week? Well, Wendy at WM Squared Designs released a new kit this week called Great Escape: Chicago!

Wendy has been designing this fun packed series of kits for various travel locations. Not just the US. So be sure to check out all her Great Escape kits.

Here are some of my other pages.

California. Using the Great Escape and Great Escape California kit.

This one uses the Great Escape Washington kit.

I used the original Great Escape kit and a Silhouette shape to create the cover. The map was a free shape of the week in April. I've been adding a colored state shape to the map as we visit new places. Traveling is one of my most favorite activities to do with my family. There is still so much traveling I want to do!

There will be more Great Escape kits released in May! You can also grab some coordinating freebies on Wendy's blog. You can sign-up for Wendy's newsletter to be informed.

The album that I am using is a chipboard album that I got through Oriental Trading Company.

  4. Cathy these pages are really nice. What a wonderful album you will have when you are done!

  5. Fantastic album! I love how each page is reflective of where it is. Thanks so much for joining us at Crop Stop this week!

  6. I absolutely LOVE this! I love the pages, I love the cover, and I love the concept. May I recommend a cruise to Alaska for your future travels? Many of them leave from Seattle, which would allow you time to explore that gorgeous and fun city. And I can't say enough good things about Alaska. It's everything you've heard and more.
