Travel the world Tag! Update about Balance and LIFE!

Hello Crafty friends! Once again I am trying to balance all the things I want to do, I set up yet another schedule for myself so that I have some time to enjoy life and not just "survive" it! With so many changes happening in our lives, I can't help but become over whelmed and then I end up in circles accomplishing nothing. I need to schedule all the things I need/want to do including the fun stuff, like crafting! With Cross country season just weeks away I want to make sure I am actively finding ways to manage it all.  Fingers crossed I will be successful!

Anyways, I pre-made a traveler's notebook/mini scrapbook and took it with me to Costa Rica. And actually journaled about my trip daily! Now I need little bits and pieces to put it all together. With a few blank spots I wanted to fill in, this tag fit perfectly!

I used nothing but my Cuttlebug for this one! 

Paper from Heidi Sonboul Special Delivery
Crate paper and fringe scissors
Ribbon from my scrap ribbon pile
Doily from DoodleBugs
Gems, Tim Holtz Tiny word stickers
DoubleClickSkittles: Sailboat Blue
Scallop and Flag paper punch
Banner die Freckled Fawn
Sizzix Die Tags

DoubleClick Skittles Showcase Color: Sailboat Blue!
