Travel Journal

Good morning to all my lovely friends and followers and a very special welcome today to my latest follower Brenda thank you Brenda for joining my blog. I hope everyone is well and looking forward to a lovely weekend.
Today I'm sharing another of the projects I made recently for Crafty Ribbons to launch the new Festival Ribbon Collection as soon as I received  these ribbons I immediately thought of holidays and  decided to have a go at making a travel journal. There are a few extra photos but hope you all like it.

A5 kraft ring bound notebook from Hobby Craft
The papers are a double sided sheet I bought at Ross Papercraft show its Kaisercraft Wanderlust Collection Bon Voyage
Kraft paper inside the covers is  from a My Mind's Eye Life Stories 12 x 12 pad.
