Enclosing Private Thoughts

The journaling for this title page of our Hilton Head trip this year is enclosed in a vellum envelope I cut with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge on the Cricut.  I wanted to include our expectations and experiences in sharing our favorite island with those we love.   The joys and challenges - and there were mostly joys - aren't something I'm going to read every time I go through the scrapbook and aren't necessarily things I want to share.  Including journaling in an envelope can include your thoughts without making them readily accessible to every pair of eyes that sees your scrapbook.

I cut the scallop design out of the designer paper with a craft knife so it kind of looks like the envelope is sitting in a sand dune. 

I think we all look pretty good in this photo for it to be 6:00 a.m.!  I always forget to do the group picture until the end of a visit and they were truly loaded and ready to hit the road when we gathered before daylight in the condo parking lot for this shot.  I don't know about Jaime, but I didn't even have on any makeup!  Oh well, it's the beach after all.

Ingredients:  DSP:  DCWV
