So guys what do you journal?
I always have great intentions but usually have cards to make, orders to do or demo's.  I seem to get less and less of scrapbooking and journalling done about my family and friends unless of course if I am making a gift for someone.
Mind you I tend to also sit down on my puter or to watch the TV when really I should take myself to the office and play.  :)
Anyway, I was in TK Max this week and saw this blank book. 
Now we all are guilty of saying I won't buy it as I can make one....which if very true, but I have come to the decision that if I wait till I've make the could be sometime....and then I would have forgotten what I wanted to write!  LOL.
So I took the plunge and bought this book which I thought was very apt for my caravan journal....sad I know but my other half said it would be nice (note because it is a job for me!) to keep a record of sites and what we get up to whilst travelling around the country.

So my journal is made....and I only had to do a topper, using my Spellbinder nestabilities labels 8 and my cricuit machine.  The lettering was taken out of a magazine and finished with Ranger Glossy accents.
The journalling has been done with stamps from Papertrey Ink.
How easy was that!  I have also decided to keep it very simple....that way I might keep it up!

It is also already filled with our latest journeys....definitely a first for me. 
But the real question is "Will I keep it up?!!!"
My brother bought me a travel printer for Christmas so I can print and go....actually just had a good play with it and it is fabby....even though it took me a wee while to work out....not very techno minded!
So really now I have no excuse all I need is my camera, printer, pen, book and a couple of way of getting in some crafting whilst on the go....well, it would be rude not to!
