I was so excited to use today’s steal for a project. Simple Stories Urban Traveler is perfect for a surprise I am working on for my oldest daughter. Shhh this is a secret, but Samantha has been working very hard to put herself through school. She will graduate massage therapy school next spring and we want to surprise her with a trip. Now because of Urban Traveler, I was able to create a fantastic present to tell her about the trip.

I created a mini travel journal she can fill up while on our adventure. The journal pages are perfect for this project. I was able to keep it small but still make enough space to write about our escapades and add photos later.

All of the little sticker pieces included in the collection kit, along with my favorite tool pop dots, added interest and dimension to the little pages. Can I also say I am in love with the alphabet stickers? Perfect size for this type of project.

The cut apart journaling pages along with the layered stickers helped to fill some of the space in the book.

I love the idea of having this book ready to fill as we go. Memories can fade easily as you move on to the next activity, now we can jot down the fun as we have it.

The photo overlays that are also included in the collection kit are so cool. I have them set on the page and only attached by the top so they can be easily lifted and a photo put behind it.

I can’t wait for this trip to celebrate my oldest finishing school. Now to decide where we are going…any suggestions?
