I love this! I just did my first on-the-trip travel album/journal/smash (whatever the title dujour is...)for a family reunion. It was awesome to come home with a nearly complete album. You have some really fun ideas that I plan to incorporate in our next trip. Thank you for the flip through. Very inspirational! Found you from Pinterest.

I love the 8 x 10 pages. I will have to use that. Loved the patches too. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing!

Hey Melissa! Didn't 7 gypsies have cable rings? I think they were only 1 1/2 inchies, but you can get cable keyrings on amazon. They're flexible, and cheap. Might help the book lay flat.

What an awesome job you did on your journal. I am getting ready to go on a wonderful travel journey with my 12 yr old daughter. You gave me some wonderful ideas for capturing some of the wonderful memories we will create. Thanks for sharing. BTW... your nephew is absolutely adorable!!
Blessings,

Nice compilation of your travel experiences... and nice photos too. I'll be making a journal like that too.

Melissa - I came across this and your Tips blog recently, and wanted to let you know I just LOVE your style and technique. I've taken many trips with my best friend, and I've tried journaling by hand, journaling by e-mail, and taking photos (hundreds now when it's digital). But I seldom re-read my journals, and I only journaled for a couple of trips. Still have hundreds of photos. Your ideas are so practical and fun that I'm going to do it on the trip we're taking this summer. Thanks for such great inspiration! Darla
