I didn't know I was going away until a few days before...and not even until I boarded the plane did I know exactly where, so it was kind of hard to prep a journal Cheesy

I used a large piece of handmade paper that I'd been using as a table protector so it was lovely and painted already. I folded it into a book and stuck a few things on before we went away. I took a basic kit of pens and a gluestick and snippits of paper that might be useful and packed them in my bag.






I ended up in Porto in Portugal, so I had an awful lot to cram into my pages! It was very limiting, but I loved the challenge and the result.



















I love picking stickers off the signs and walls people stick them on for my books Smiley


I don't think i could have fitted much more in there, could I? Cheesy

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

That's a lot of gorgeous eye-candy!  Shocked Every bit of space has been used, which is an impressive feat. Beautiful, beautiful journal!

Thank you!

It was easy to cary such a thin book around, so that was a big plus! I think next time I might try and have a few of these books ready so I can continue on to the next one if I need to and attach them together at the end.
