I’m joining the Make it Monday Blog hop and hope you enjoy! Here’s a project I finished this week.
Last year we drove from Northern California to Glacier National Park, Montana. Along the drive, we took loads of pictures – highway signs, Welcome to…[state] signs, and scenery. Of course, the passenger was always the photographer.
As a child, road trips were our vacations (my mom doesn’t fly). We would often order a Trip Tik from the American Automobile Association (AAA). Especially since, in those days, electronic GPS and mobile technology wasn’t around. I thought it might be fun to use one on this trip too. Then I got to thinking about how I might re-use this little book to document our drive.
When we returned home, I picked the best pictures of the drive and ordered 2×2 prints from Persnickety Prints (they have a great template that makes this both easy and cost effective!).
I added pictures to the appropriate pages within the Trip Tik and then went back and added journaling, washi and some fun pocket style cards.
It’s a pretty good reminder of the journey getting to Glacier National Park! The journal cards and pocket style cards I used were from Simple Stories Sn@p series that I purchased on sale at Michael’s (click the picture to see an Amazon listing for these kinds of supplies). I loved using my Smash Book pen/glue and was able to use up some of my [vast] washi collection.
Now hop on over to the next post…. [I’m putting in the entire list this week as it’s my first week doing this] – ENJOY!
