Travel Book

I am off on a trip to Paris. At the last minute, I decided I did not want to bring my datebook with the information on tours and times. I did want some envelopes in which to stuff small pieces of ephemera. So, late one night, I sealed some small envelopes and cut off one of the sides. I oriented them vertically and added some filler pieces of card stock. It was all put together using my trusty tape gun. I still need to fill in some information, but below is a sampling of the pages:

I did mention I put this together LATE at night! I circle punched the envelope to make filing bit and pieces easier. I used a bit of patterned paper from a Tim Holtz pad for the cover - again relying on my trusty tape gun!
I thought the French ads and script were a perfect cover. Now to make my little additions, and into my purse it will go!

I use something similar when I travel - love having the envelopes and pockets.

Looking forward to a complete report.

It is so helpful to keep track of what was done on each day - my pockets are usually over flowing!
