Quick Travel Journal

Hi All:
I’ve been busy working on my craft table so I haven’t been creating anything else. I did want to share a fast project with you. My friend is jetting off to Europe with her daughter. They will be traveling light (backpack only) so I wanted to give her something small that wouldn't take up a ton of room. Good luck on that packing light business. I couldn’t do it! I purchased a notebook at Target for $6 bucks and added a few embellishments. I didn’t want to go overboard so it was quick and easy. She can add to it when she gets home. Sometimes, you don't have to go overboard (like I usually do) to create something functional and cute too! I hope she uses it to create some lasting memories.  Enjoy your week.

I bought the book "as is". The picture was already there and it was perfect for her trip. I added a place holder and few chipboard pieces with, of course, Helmar's 450 glue. I wanted to make sure she had pockets to tuck stuff into so she could keep things organized and the rest of the book was just pages to write her thoughts.
Just a few tags and paper to write notes on. I thought it would be a good idea to create a little stack of date sheets (bottom right)  for quick notes. I just used some alpha stamps and a lined stamp to create them.

How did I miss your blog?
A great idea to purchase a journal and alter. It is a favourite of mine to do.
Kim, I plan to grab your button and add to my sidebar if that is okay with you.
