War and Peace

Hello fellow groovers,
Well I am finally ready to show the project that has taken up most of my time over the last few weeks.
My little sister turned 40 on the 16th of March, and I have been working on a little project for her birthday.
I got the idea from Debbie Dolphin she made a travel wallet to go with a suitcase she made, in an edition of the magnolia mag last year(sorry I cant find the project on her blog).
My sister is the wandering spirit in my family and went travelling years ago, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, India to name a few, so I took Debbie's idea and changed it into a passport.
I made it more a passport of her life and travels (I guess almost like this is your life for those of you who can remember that program)
It has little tags that pull down and reveal little messages, but I forgot to photograph those open, the final tag that pulled down revealed a little pocket with money in.
For years one of her dreams has been to go to Borneo and work with the Orangutan's, and for this special birthday her fella booked the holiday, how awesome is that!
So sorry for war and peace but the title should have warned you :) I will add the messages under the photos, Tracy was always the one to try new things, dance and horse riding well you will get the picture!

We used to go swimming at the weekends
When Tracey used to have dancing lessons
When she used to go horse riding
When mum and dad used to take us sailing
You went travelling starting with Australia
Then Thailand......
Then India....
And now you are off to see the Rangas(Tracy's nickname for orangutans)
Happy 40th Tracy :)
All the products come from Sirstampalot except the wooden buttons that come from Button it
Right I need to go lay down after that and I hope you aren't asleep already :)
Hope you like it.

I have been really lucky to get a sneak peak of the new Molly Blooms and a couple of stamps to play with they are just amazing and I love the theme, so I will give you a couple of sneak peaks over the next week.
I have a question for you I was watching create and craft a couple of weeks ago and Sheena was calling the people who used her fusion technique fusioneers, so if we use Molly Blooms stamps what does that make us Janice at Sirstampalot suggested Bloomers!! I have to say I like it.
What do you think can you better that with any other suggestions?
So here goes for the first sneak peak...........
