Welcome back for Compendium of Curiosities Challenge 18!
This weeks challenge is featuring pocket pages! 
We did the Worn Cover challenge on October 11 as you might remember. 
Now we can share the inside of the book! 
I am still working on mine but I did get a few pages done for you to see. 
If you want to play along you can find the information you need on page 36 of 
Compendium of Curiosities Vol. III.  
If you still need to get a book to play along you can do that here
Tim and Mario will get it in the mail to you as soon as they can and it will be signed! 
If you play along and follow the rules for the challenge you will be eligible to win some fabulous prizes! Tim and Mario donated lots of great prizes! 
And the sponsor this week is The Funky Junky who donated a gift certificate for your shopping pleasure! 
Okay...on to the challenge!
Here is a peek at the pages I have done so far. 
My husband and I went on a 7 night cruise in November. 
Each tab will represent the day of the cruise...
I like the idea of having the book go in a chronological order. 

 Below I included a picture of the book so you can see how the pages look with the tabs.
Love those...I need to get (lots) more, hehehe. 

 Page one is interactive with the flip up made out of a tag.  
I inked the tag with Broken China and Peacock Feathers Distress ink. 
Stamped it with my favorite speckle stamp and the compass stamp. 
I then tucked the tag in and just folded it down to create the flip. 
The picture of my hubby and I are as we were waiting to sail away from the port. 
It was a rainy day...but we were embracing the imperfections and enjoying anyway. 

 The next page in the book is keeping our cards from the ship. 

 On the backside some journaling about the beginning of our adventure as well
as a picture of our room number. 
 I saved all the paperwork that we were given and one of them had the listing of things that went on each day aboard ship...I cut them apart and used this to document each day!!! 
 The next pages are the beginning of day two.  
I was attending the Teresa Collins event as well as doing a Ranger project on one of the days. 
This is were I included the itinerary we were given in our welcome bag and a group picture. 
 Then it's on to the the ship's itinerary. 
While I was involved in scrapbooking part of the cruise, my hubby was exploring the ship and the casino! 
This is as far as I have gotten, but I will tell you I love having the different size pockets in the pages!
It makes it really fun to mix things up! 
I hope you will give this challenge a try and see how much fun you can have in mixing things up!
Don't forget to leave a comment on each of the Curiosity Crew's blogs and follow the rest of the rules you can find here
