Smash Book Part Two!

As promised, here are a few more pages from my Northumberland journal.

This was using some journalling cards I had bought a long time ago - used one and put the rest in a box! Now they are all used up.

It was good having Penny with us as she took photos with me in! I loved using my Pogo printer. I had not used it for ages, in fact, I had almost forgotten that I had it. The paper said it was out of date, but the photos it printed out were perfectly usable.

One of the stamps I took with me was a postcard one from Lili of the Valley, which I bought at Ally Pally this year. It was just what I was looking for to use as a journalling stamp for holidays.

I found it really relaxing each evening to take myself off to the dining room table and create my couple of pages whilst Penny and Hugh were trying to finish the jigsaw puzzle. They did finish it, well almost - it was a 1000 piece puzzle, but there were only 999 pieces when it came to the end!

I liked the back of this journalling card, where I could list my 10 favourite things from the holiday.

And finally, the inside back cover, where I had another pocket.
Thanks for looking! I will have more holiday photos to share with you soon.
