Many of you know that I travel to Ireland every other year with one of my best Irish friends. It's just one of those things that I do for me! This next year (2008), we will have 10 travelers! I've never traveled with more than 6 women at a time - it will be interesting, but FUN! We decided to rent a 5-bedroom castle in the southwest area of the country. I've never been to that section of the country, so I'm jazzed!
I wanted to give the gals a little something to take with them, and Kris and I learned the first year to journal our trip. It was so hard to remember even from day-to-day where we'd been and what we'd seen - much less wait to get home and try to remember. I bought a Bind-it-All about 6 months ago and hadn't even touched it yet. So, I thought I'd give it a try. I came up with these adorable little journals. They are 6" X 6" with 40 linen paper pages. I added a couple of coordinating envelops in the back in case the gals wanted to save little mementos. The paper is "Stroke of Luck" and "Run of Luck" by Reminisce. It is an iridescent paper. I will stamp each person's initial on front inside the stationery circle using the alphabet stamps, both by Inkadinkado. The spines are embellished with ribbon - of course, and I made a matching beaded pen.
