Still creating even while the server is down. My family is leaving for Wyoming on Saturday. I always take a journal with me to record all the stuff about our trips. I was in a panic, that I didn't have a journal for this trip. The Great Outdoors collab made it easy for me to create one! I love the cut files that Cathrine of Paper Garden Projects included in the collab. I cut a bunch, used some to decoupage to my cover and I cut extras to take to "Smash"/add in my journal as I write.
I used just a few elements from a kit by WM Squared Designs and Kristin Cronin Barrow too. I decoupaged the covers to chipboard to make it nice and sturdy. Inside my journal I have graph paper for writing/sketching, envelopes and different sized folder/pockets - to keep the extra elements to Smash, and to store goodies we get on the trip like tickets, maps, etc. Then I used my Bind-it-all to put it all together on some o-wires. The big band around it is a K&Company Smash book accessory, so is the pen/gluestick.
Now I just need to get the laundry done so I can pack some clothes for the trip!
