On a (blogging) roll!

Sorry - couldn't resist the pun.  But yes I'm back for a third day in a row!

Next week the youngest and I are off to Devon on our annual church holiday - the oldest is off on her first guide camp.  So another holiday, means another travel journal is required.  You can see my previous efforts here and here.  I love making these - the one took me an afternoon.  I just grab some cardstock, scraps of paper and stamps and see where it takes me.

This one has manilla envelopes interspersed throughout to put in the leaflets I collect etc.  This time I have printed out some titles onto brown kraft paper and will stick in as I go along.

I really enjoy keeping a record of where we have been and what we have been doing.  Its also a great place to record those little holiday stories - all ready for scrapbooking upon my return.   Even if I don't get to doing this for months afterwards, I know that I can turn to my journal for the details.

Lets just hope we get some sunny weather to enjoy!

Lovely fresh colours - like the idea of having a few titles ready to stick too. Enjoy!

You are so organised Lynn....I just rely on my memory- and these days that's not such a great idea!:)

this is a really lovely idea. I usually make my travel books when I return, but it would be so useful to take one with me. Thanks for the inspiration! xx

An afternoon is pretty good going for something that is going to last forever :) I love anything which involves envelopes
