WOYWW- Travel Journal and JOFY workshop!

Hi Everyone and thanks for stopping by.

My desk this week I'm pleased to say has been quite busy. I've errm tidied it a bit before this shot as you wouldn't have seen anything under the pile of trimmed photo paper. 

I have been working on my travel journal. Selecting photos, sizing them, printing, cutting, mounting and journalling. It's quite time consumimg but I'm not in a hurry!  I hope to share more soon if other things don't get in the way like Christmas! I had to put the distress ink right in front of me while I was working because I kept forgetting to ink the edges of the photo mounts before I stuck them in. Very frustrating because now some are inked and some aren't! Please ingnore the 'Hip Flask' I haven't taken to the drink (yet) a friend thought it might look good amongst the pages and indeed it will at some point. 
I am very excited as Alison and myself are travelling up to Wantage on Saturday to do a Jo Firth-Young workshop in The Stamp Attic. Whoo hoo! But Oh dear, all those lovely goodies in the shop to buy….now where did I put my piggy bank……? 

Have a happy week

    I was going to contact you when I was down in BP last week but then read you were poorly and I didn't like to disturb you.....maybe next time I'm down, eh?
    And a hip flask huh, hmmmm, I bet you've got something nice in there :-)

  8. Lovely to take time over your travel journal so you get the photos etc as you want them. Thanks for sharing. Hope you are having a great day and have a lovely crafting week to come. Hazel, WOYWW #69 x

  10. Thanks for visiting my desk.
    Your travel journal looks great! Never mind about the distress ink... as long as you don't forget to put date and place on the photos. In a few years time you won't remember where what was. (I speak from experience... I waited 3 years to make a book about a significant journey, and I found I had forgotten so much!)
    Thank you for letting me peep over your shoulder.

  11. Hi Lynda!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog on your travels. You may be green with envy at my 3 days to play but you're taking an amazing workshop! Lucky you! None of those things are offered out here in the boonies. hehe

    Your travel journal looks great! What did you use for the base pages? Did I miss that?
    Creative Blessings!
