As promised, here is my most recent souvenir journal, all bulked up with ephemera and memories. My favourite pages are shown below, but if you wish to see the entire journal - you can view it in my flickr journaling photo set.
In my current online journaling e-course, Three Times the Charm, next week I am addressing the topic of Souvenir Journals (with a fun download I am so excited about!!) and it was great to have a journal just made to reference while I am working on it.
Now for a peek inside... as you may remember, here is what it looked like before (mine is the pink one):
And here is the cover now:
Danielle and I both bought these new Moleskine Pens , they came with little tiny pamphlets and I used mine to make a fold out from my journal page. You can see part of it here (where it says Danielle & Hope):
Danielle and I headed to Connecticut to a flea market I had not been to since I lived there over 9 years ago. We were so close that I had to ask her to stop so I could see the boarding school I went to - it looked the same and had some amazing memories still there for me (Photo by Danielle).
We stumbled upon this ice cream place - where we both ordered smalls and came away with the most massive ice cream cones ever.
Here is a spread about the ferry - and I printed out the facebook tag that Danielle did for us, saying we were in the middle of the Long Island Sound.
We spent time at two different beaches - one which I found so many sea glass treasures. And we also ate a lot of sweets!
For a fun touch, I cut the bakery name from the box they gave us (filled with Italian cookies, of course) and used a piece of the twine they used and wrapped it around before adding it to by journal.
Here is the back of my journal with the photo of me and the Abercombie model. I loved how they gave us little envelopes to put them in.
And that is it - as I mentioned above, you can see the entire journal in my flickr journaling photo set. My next trip is not slated until August - but should be a good one to journal, I am heading to Seattle to meet up with some friends and take a couple journaling classes from Teesha Moore.
