Hand made Organizer
Well I was finding it hard to keep all my information together for this long trip as I was making arrangements for tons of fun stuff for Shelby and I to do. The solution was to make my own organizer that would do exactly what I needed it to do and be totally personalized to my trip. So I first made my cover using heavy duty chipboard from Cinch, which is the binding machine I used. I won it at our Scrapfest scrapbooking show that happens here in Ontario, Canada 2 times a year. I made all my pages the same as I whipped it off in one night. Of course I added the dates and names and embellishments the next day.
This was the beginning of the book so I'm keeping our travel documents in it, and the information for our limo to the airport.
Page one is our boarding documents for our Disney Magic Cruise. I used Mickey tabs for all the page dividers.
Day 2 is our first stop in Key West. Here we are taking a conch train to a butterfly conservatory and aquarium.
Day 3 is an at sea day. I'm not sure what fabulous things the boat will have to offer us to do, so this page is ready to be filled.
Day 4 is my birthday and we will be spending it in Grand Caymen learning about sea turtles and watching how they are farmed and released. I can't wait to hold the babies. I had a little turtle as a kid who I named Speedy. He didn't live long, so hope these little guys live longer.
Day 5 puts us in Cozumel, Mexico. Here we are going to an aquarium and we are going into a tank with dolphins. We will learn tons about them and get to feel them. Exciting.
I will include more pages over the next few days.
