Project Life {Week 12}

This is a long one.  It took me a while to get it all figured out and instead of trying to cram this week into one 2 page spread, I left all the rules out this week.
Main Spread - My stitched map.  I used a Silhouette file to cute out the
state of CA with map paper.  Then I stitched a rough map of our journey.

I'm on a mission to use a Studio Calico veneer on every project.
 Studio Calico camera stamp and Shabby Chic Crafts tag

 I included the brochure from the lodge we stayed in.

Flair.  You know I love her flair.  She recently lowered her
prices and added more flair.

 Yosemite title was cut with my Silhouette.

Another large photo cut up to fit into the smaller pockets.
 And more veneer.

 I still have a small stash of crocheted stars I bought from someone
on Etsy last year.
  A combination of my favorite things right now.  Those
labels from Aja and Studio Calico veneer!
Look....more veneer!
A pressed penny from the aquarium.
To keep things fresh, I mix my page protectors.  I use the PL mixed box 
with a sample of all styles and the WRMK ones.  This was from WRMK
and included a 2x12 slot.  I had a bunch of pics form my iphone and instead
of printing them and making *another* 2 page spread, I printed them
small and used them in the strip.
 As I was planning these pages, I took 6 of my favorite photos and 
had them printed as 8x12's at Costco.  I used some in PL and others
be scrapped on regular 12x12 layouts.
These were shots of Big Sur looking north and south.

And that is Week 12!
