Greece Journal

I love to journal when we travel and we're going to Greece in September.  I took several techniques and combined them to create my one of a kind journal.  We leave from New York on the 18th and will be in Santorini to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary.  Looking forward to it.  I have included pics of the journal and you may notice my grandsons fingers.  Kingston loves to be in my scrapbook room with me to help.  I hope you like my journal.  Thanks for looking.

I used an svg from Wikipedia to recreate the Coat of Arms.
After adhering to the front of the journal, I coated it with Glossy Accents.

I used Graphic 45 and 7 Gypsies to create the journal.  I included a photo holder sheet in the front of the journal to hold ephemera.  I used google translate and cut out various words in greek throughout the journal.  This page will be about flying to Greece.

The page on the left shows 34th Anniversary (Kingston's fingers are covering it up).  The page on the right is for our tours of Santorini and Akrotiri.  I found pics on the internet to use as the cover page.

The page on the left will be about the Volcano of Santorini.  We will tour the inactive volcano.  The page on the right will be about the Mykonos Ferry ride.

The left page has a small waterfall to place pics of Mykonos.  The page on the right is for our tour to Delos.

We will be taking the ferry to Athens (left page) and will participate in a sightseeing tour of Athens.

This is my flying home page.  On the inside of the back cover, I added another type of journal.  We will spending three days in New York upon our return to the States.

I used magnets to keep these pages closed.
