Paperchase for a reasonable £7. There are plenty of pages for journaling on, there are a selection of photo pockets and pockets for storing all those bits and pieces that are collected on trips such as this one.
I took it apart and divided it roughly into two.
I used October Afternoon's Travel Girl range to cover the fronts, adding suitable Project Life cards, washi tape (also found in Paperchase), baker's twine and American Craft alphas (Broadway).
For the second book, I cut chipboard to size for the covers and used bookrings. I added ribbon, but now I'm not sure about it. It can always come off.
I've left Mum's journal fairly plain, as I think she will like to add her own embellishments.
I added shocking pink card to the inside cover of mine and added washi tape. That dark blob you can see is a magnetic bookmark that has the Statue of Liberty on it.
3x4 Project Life and washi tape. What are they waiting for? A photo of the aircraft that will fly us to NYC.

Part of me thinks it's a really cool thing to do.
Part of me hopes that The Boy Child will want to write in it.
How about you? Do you keep a travel journal? Is it a mini scrapbook or do you keep your notes electronically?
