We're Back!......

OMG We had so much fun on Honeymoon 5!!! We went to Orlando to visit Disneyworld and Harry Potter's Wizarding World!!! Most of the photos are still in my camera, but here's a shot of us at Downtown Disney this past week...
I know I've talked about this before, but Michael and I got married in 2007. It was a second marriage for each of us, and we talked alot about how important it is to celebrate and nurture a good relationship. One of the things we decided to do was to go on a honeymoon every year, and we have kept our promise!

Each year, I have made a travel journal to document our journey. I make the journal up before we go, and collect postcards and memorabilia to add to it along the way. Each evening I jot a few quick notes about the day's activities, and then add photos and finishing touches after we get home. Here's the beginnings of this year's journal:

Not too long before we went, I happened upon a Harry Potter board game at a thrift shop. I snatched it up and used the game board for my journal cover. Here's the outside of the journal, which I covered with paper towels and then painted with acrylic paint...

on the inside you can see the board from the game...

On the inside pages, I used a combination of painted watercolor paper (left side), and collaged papers (right side). Here's how the first two pages look so far (click on the images to see the details)...

I used a sewn tapes binding technique to bind it together...
As I finish the pages, I will be sure to share them with you. I took about 400 photos, and I have a pile of ephemera to incorporate. It's going to be fun fun fun!

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope your weekend is going great!
