Ireland, is just one of the stops that was stamped in the #midgeandmadgeadventures passport! Going back in time to the year 2007 Midge and I went to Ireland for 10 days! It was magical to say the least!!

We were the only two “young” peeps on the tour, however we made many very good friends while on this trip. We even stay in contact with a few of the couples from this trip.  Who loves Facebook? Yes, this is the magical social media site that we can stay in contact with one another.  I will share a couple of my favorite pics while in Ireland!

I know the pic on the bottom is kind of wacky (not sure what my exposure was doing LOL) However this is one of my favorite pics! This eclair was as big as our heads! We had to share one and boy oh boy were they tasty!!  The top pic is of a cathedral and we were able to go inside and take awesome photos too! The pic of the bright colored houses was a fun one! And of course the pic of me and Midge on the bus!!

Tour Memories CollageI was lucky enough to get this fun Name and Definition along with some larger Pamphlets that will not fit in my Junk Journal but will come in handy for reports and references.


This was our amazing bus driver Jo! He was as Irish as you get! Super funny and like the big book of Irish Knowledge! Plus he is a Ginger!!!

A picture that isn’t posted is one of the Blarney Castle! Yes, I kissed the famous Blarney Stone!

IMG_3646This is a picture of our whole tour group! We had such a blast touring the beautiful Ireland!!!

I created this awesome Junk Journal for Create & Craft using the fun Tim Holtz products! This fun Junk Journal will have a video tutorial coming to Create & Craft soon (I will keep you posted as to when). What is a junk journal? It is a mix between a mini album and a journal. Keeping your memorabilia, photos and journals all in one place.

Here is what the Journal looked like before adding my Ireland Pics and Memorabilia…
