Travel Journals

Hello everyone.  It's been a long time since I've posted.  We have been busy traveling and enjoying life.  Last year was Greece, this year we've been to Italy, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Slovenia, Czech Republic, and Slovakia.  In September, we're going to Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.  During our last trip, we met this amazing woman, Lorraine, who loves to travel as much, if not more, than we do.  She is going to accompany us (and Jackie) on our trip next year.  We will be flying to Paris, then taking a tour bus to Brussels, Belgium.  Then we will continue to Amsterdam to board a river boat for cruising.  This trip is all about seeing the Tulips in the Netherlands.  I'm always excited about traveling and look forward to the trips we have planned.  I always make myself a journal to keep track of all the wonderful things we see and do.  Jackie likes to write but always makes a digital scrapbook of her trips.  So for our trip next year, I decided to make journals for Jackie and Lorraine.  I have included the two journals and will post mine when I get it completed.  Hope you enjoy!  Thanks for looking.

The front and back are made from book covers I purchased years ago.  The binding is paper that looks like leather after you stress it.

The inside of the first book.  It's just white cardstock to write on.

This book started out as a file folder mini book but I didn't like the way it turned out.  I started over and now I really like the look.
