Whilst we were away on our road trip I kept my journal daily, but also wanted to do a little bit of scrapbooking! I had bought a 'kraft' type journal from Paperchase and so took that, some Washi tape and a pen to do 'something' but I didn't know what. Hugh suggested that I use it to keep a diary about the hotels - doing reviews on them and sticking in business cards, free notepaper etc. I thought this was a brilliant idea and to top it off, Hugh took a photo of me outside every hotel for me to stick in when I got back (except in Los Angeles where we completely forgot!).
Anyway, when I got home I had only used about 20 of the pages and there were loads left in the journal. I didn't want to waste the pages, so decided to take it apart, take out the pages I had written and turn them into their own mini book and that is what I did last weekend.
The pages I had written where then placed chronologically inside the book. Here you can see the business card from the hotel stuck in with the tape.
In the original journal there were a couple of pages to hold 6x4 photos, so I included one of those to put all the photos in that we took of the suite we were upgraded to in Lake Havasu! I also put in the little maps that were in the itinerary book we were given by our travel agent.
