Travel Journal for Japan/China

Update:  We have returned from our trip and my journal is full of writing.  I need to include some of my pics that I took into the photo spots.  I did include a Cricut cut from Something to Remember on the first page.  This is the page that I keep all my tickets, ephemera from our trip.  Just thought I would add the update here.

My DH has to go to Japan and China for work and I'm going to tag along.  I love to journal while traveling.  I usually take lots of photos but have a tendency not to scrap them after I get home.  I have decided to start incorporating the photos into my journals.  This is my journal for the Japan/China trip.  I used the Teresa Collins folders, double-sided card stock, envelopes, and stickers.  I used Bo Bunny photo sleeves and lined paper, and some Washi tape.  I stamped with Graphic 45 Bird Song stamps.  I scored the folders, cut and scored the card stock and adhered them with score tape to create the journal.  I hope you enjoy.

Once the dates are confirmed I will add them to the front of the book.

I used one of the envelopes to insert a journaling page.  The photo sleeve on the right is a little hard to see.  

This embellishment is in the envelopes.  I inserted tags stamped with Graphic 45 Bird Song stamps.  I added spots on the next page for pics.

Just another shot of the hard to see photo sleeve.

Stickers added to card stock (journaling page) with another photo sleeve.

I loved how the Bo Bunny lined paper worked with the Teresa Collins Far and Away line.

This is the smallest folder in the set.  I sewed a photo sleeve and coordinating card stock to this folder.
