To thank a friend for her generosity of letting us stay free in her amazing "camp" in Maine... I thought she let's all her friends and family use her place the best thing would be a journal of their experiences... but her cabin is full of antiques... 3 stories worth... so I wanted to make the journal fit her decor... so here is what I came up with...  the photo is taken from the lake of her cabin.. the original journal is the Blue photo on bottom.



our thank you card embellished on inside back cover






Inside front cover has a notepad for her to share the story of their family and this camp... her husband and sons ashes are there...







Thanks for looking!

I love this, it's absolutely beautiful and so thoughtful.

"Camp" must be the word they in the East Coast. We are going to Massachusetts in a few weeks to visit family and my cousin has a "camp" in NH.
