Journaling SECRET...


We just celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary on July 26th.  We were with 25 Family members... so did not get a romantic evening for just US.  So... my Hubby surprised me with an overnight stay at Salish Lodge at Snoqualmie Falls just this past Thursday!!!  We had a wonderful dinner, was greeted with a bottle of champagne in our room, hit the local Casino until the wee hours of the morning (did not win big :-( )... and then wrapped it all up with Starbucks coffee and retrieved our kiddos by 11:00am.
It was a fun night!!!

My Hubby saved the ROOM KEY holder which works PERFECT for a hiding pocket for my journaling for this layout.  I also have a grocery store receipt, our dinner receipt and our actual key holder tucked behind. That is my SECRET.  Amazing things can be used with a little imagination.
I hope you find time to join us at LMCH52 this week!!
Have a great week!

Supplies: 
Stampin' Up Simply Scrappin' Kit "Love Sparkles" & Creamy Caramel for base of layout.
EK Success Letter Stickers for Title "Anniversary."
Embellies:  Jumbo Regal Rose Brads, White grosgrain 1/4" ribbon, random rose colored button,

Great idea! I have those room key holders from my last couple of vacations so now I know what to do with them. I also wanted to take you for stopping by and checking out my 'secret' but mainly to thank you for reading what the secret was. The 2 before you must have used cut and paste because they commented on my journaling secret. :( Thanks again Yvonne
