Travel Scrapbooking: Maps, Globes and Paper Planes

This week at, there are going to be lots of travel-themed projects to inspire!  I'm excited to be sharing a page I made using inspiration from maps and globes: these are a couple of sneak peaks, but to see the full project, plus another page from a guest designer, visit

I should probably also mention that CIA stands for County International Adviser (so it's not quite what you think) and means I look after the international side of things in the area where I volunteer with Girlguiding. Basically I help support leaders and girls who are planning or going on international projects.

Plus I also jump at every chance I get to run an international Guiding event!

I had huge amounts of fun making this page as it was my first chance to play with the new Starshine line from Shimelle.  And this line works absolutely perfectly for me: maps, globes, stars, blues, aquas, pinks, and every good thing.  I've got a great pile of travel photos ready to hop onto pages in my album, and I'm very much looking forward to complementing them with a little bit of Starshine!
