Travel Journal

Travel Journal
So I know I have mentioned a few times now this Travel Journal I am doing with a few of my friends. I wanted to take today to tell you all about it!
So myself, Marlene, Renee, and Carrie are all doing this together. The brainchild behind this whole idea was Marlene and her idea was based off this video. She recruited us all and we are all very excited to get started on this project!
So the book is set up so that there are 10 or so sections to fill out in the book and that in each section there are 4 spots for each person to fill in. Then we each get a month with each book to fill in all 10 sections. I think this is going to be the best swap I have ever done!
Here's how my book is set up.
Travel Journal
My cover.
Travel Journal
Inside cover with directions and then the sign in pocket. I also left a spot to fill in my thoughts after the swap!
Travel Journal
First page, pocket with postcard of Minnesota in it.
Travel Journal
Second page, photo of me with journaling on the back.
Travel Journal
Next is a favorite family recipe all written out with special hints and notes for a good turn out on the back.
Travel Journal
Favorite quote with my reasons for liking it on the back.
Travel Journal
The first blank page which I left for everyone to be able to do what they want on them. I chose to make a mini layout about me and Valdo.
Travel Journal
Tell me about your city and or state.
Travel Journal
What is your favorite song, and here I included pockets so they could insert lyrics for me.
Travel Journal
Another blank page and postcard, photo, recipe, quote section for the next girl.
Travel Journal
Smash your favorite color. This is one of my favorite pages in the whole book, and I think alot of this page is going to pink!!!
Travel Journal
Scrap your favorite scenic spot, I choose to scrap pics from Lake Superior!
Travel Journal
Another section for the next girl and the start of the 10 random things about you pages. These pages are so fun. There's room to scrap but also more envelopes to use!
