The last of the four journals

This last journal that is going to Portugal is for my SIL.
She is so much more than that to me!
I used a SU stamp 'The World Over' with the sentiment
"Every one smiles in the same language."
I made this with kraft paper to be entered into The Kraft Journal challenge 17 for 'Mother's Day'.
The group leaves for Portugal on Mother's Day, so I thought it appropriate to include it and of course the year. It makes it so much easier to remember the dates when it's in front of your face for years to come.
'A Perfect Day' is SU sentiment and with that i used Versamark to stamp some different stamps that may pertain to the journey they are about to take----delight, seek, laughter, journey, sing from a set that is long retired of Stephanie Barnard's "A Word or Two". Mother's Day is a Verve from 'Happy Phrases' and celebrate is another SU. 'Portugal' is a tiny alpha stamp set that I have had for so many years. It is great to get out for a project like this. the red musical paper is from Club Scrap and the rest is SU.
I thought a ribbon would be different and tied it to the spiral.
Tissue flower---I used the Verve 'Elegant Flower and cut out all the tissue paper layers at one time.
thanks for coming by!
