Last year I posted about how and why I keep a travel journal. It is a very simple low-impact way of keeping a record. I haven’t scrapbooked that vacation yet but I’ve consulted the journal more than once to remember what we ate.

This year I was super pressed for time and cut corners by getting heavy patterned cardstock. This means I skipped the step of gluing the patterned paper to plain cardstock.
The cardstock is Perfect Posies from the 29th Street Market Line from My Mind’s Eye. I picked it up at Michaels on Sunday. I’m not much for distressing and cut the journal cover from an un-distressed area.
Using patterned stock made this super quick. I was running out of time to make this and threw it together. It only took 15 minutes! Okay, it was probably around 20 because Mr. P made me a margarita and I was enjoying that while finishing it.
