With inspiration from the various notebooks on the market these days, I put a bit more effort into my last travel journal - though it was still a quick project. It is still fairly small - 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" and contains a variety of pages using some older ledger papers from my stash.
Here's a look at the finished product:

I have now made lots of notes from our weekend away that can accompany our photos when I get ready to scrap these fun days. Having a few prompts helps you to remember to capture more than just the what, where, when, and how. I have one called "Laughter is the best medicine" which prompted me to record a few of the fun things we laughed about. The little gas pump stamp prompted a note on the price of gas - definitely, not something to laugh about! (I hope I don't look back on that price someday and wish we could return to it.)
This took a little over an hour to put together. Having a colorful notebook was a lot nicer than those plain sheets of cardstock stapled together.
Thanks for watching!

What a great idea and such a fun creation. Love the gas ledger and the inclusion of an envelope for receipts and memorabilia.ReplyDelete
This is great!!! Looks so pretty.ReplyDelete
I also journal on our trips :)
Great ideas! I took a Fancy Pants Brag book on our vacation last summer to journal in at the end of each day. Helped me capture many details I would normally not remember.ReplyDelete
