Let the Journey Begin!

Just three weeks till the Journey begins for Hubby and I.... our big trip to England and Europe (Paris, Venice and Rome).  I decided that I need to keep a journal to remember where we had been and what we had seen...  so I bought a little 4 1/4 by 5 3/4 inch note book.  Of course I had to alter the cover!!!! - to make sure it fitted the theme properly....
I started by printing out a background from this kit by Vinnie Pearce.  A fabulous freebie at 2peas.  I then used a number of the stamps from the Hero Arts set called Travel Journals. I filled in the "Where" and "When" and "Going Places"  The camera in the corner is a small set by Inkadinkado.

Inside the journal I have stamped a few of the stamps on some of the pages as well and added some plain pages with folded up edges to put ticket stubs and the like.  This size is just right for popping in my little travel bag -

So finally something to enter for Hero Arts Travel/Food and bookmaking challenge this month!

So now just counting down the sleeps till we go.........21 to go!!
