Flashback 21, Journal & Leprechauns

The Flashback Friday Challenge is to post our first paper-pieced card- here's mine, originally posted 7-6-09! You can hardly see the nestie embossed frame....

 And I recently had occasion to make a journal for my little. Her birthday is coming (much too quickly!) and we surprised her with an early trip somewhere she'd be collecting autographs....  Cosmo paper, and I wanted her name to stand out, but I went a little crazy with the red. Red is not such a forgiving mist. Live & learn. I also layered some grosgrain, sheer pleats & burlap sting. And it held up very well! (these are 'after trip' pics!)
 Any guesses where we went? hi ho, hi ho!? :)
 We also built a leprechaun trap! This really is all Hadley's design, but I helped her with the execution. Do leprechauns visit your house? They visit her school & make a mess, so if that leprechaun knows what's good for him, he'll skip our house. Although Hadley wrote him a note & is hoping to be pen-pals with him.
 Cory says this is less of a trap & more of a condo. Why would he leave? The trap is at school, so we'll have to wait until Monday to find out if she caught him!
And so sorry all the pics are so lousy for this post. Sheesh.
