My Personal Journal - MARCH BREAK

Hi there!!!

Nathalie here finally  rested after a busy week with my kids at home.   Though we couldn't go away for Spring/March Break this year (my son is about to graduate high school, and had to do quite a bit of work in preparation for his University applications), but that did not stop us from enjoying the week, and making the perfect "STAYCATION"

This month, I asked Trina to please include all the Lemon Drop  kits,  Pretty Things Add-on kit  and stamps in my box, and she also added the new Traveler's Notebook mini kit (Thank you, Trina!) which came in so handy to document all the mini adventures the week held.   This month's kits are so so beautiful, and so versatile that you can pretty much document all your daily adventures with them!

Created using the Lemon Drop Main, PL, Embellishment, and Pretty Things add-on kits

I used a mixture of all the kits to create the entries in my daily journal.  Since there was a large number of black and white embellishments included in the main kit,   I took advantage of  that to add color to my pictures.

All the envelopes that are included in this month's Traveller's Notebook mini kit are perfect to add extra pictures, journal cards, tags and souvenirs to your pages.  I chose to cut the flap of the  envelopes, so that they  can used them as pockets in these two entries.  Here i placed journal cards and extra photos of our daily adventures.

If you have seen my TN work before, then you will know that i try to stay away from chipboard and thick embellishments (as i don't want to add extra bulk to the page), but since i created this TN solely to document this week, i was happy to add the flair and lots of layered embellishments to the pages.  All the new Crate Paper's Here and There collection and Paige Evans Pick Me up complement the pictures of our daily activities.

Like mentioned before, this month's Lemon Drop kits are a dream to work with.  Their versatility makes is so easy to combine and mix as needed when documenting all your memories.   Here is a small video that showcases close ups of the Traveller's Notebook, so sit back, and enjoy the  music:

This little notebook tells the story of our March Break Staycation - the good, and the bad - and i love how easy it was to combine all this month's kits to bring color to a rather low key vacation.  Stop by the Citrus Twist Kits store to check all the kits (the Lemon Drop main kit has sold out, already!),   you will want to have them handy to document your adventures.   And just wait to see what is coming up in the next month!!!

That is all for me, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions on how this came together.
