Scrap-booking- Holiday Inspiration!

Having just returned from an awesome holiday to Croatia, I already want to get back there!  You can probably see why by looking at the snap above.

After a few years of non-travel last year I went to Barcelona (for my 25th birthday), Venice (found cheap flights), and Gdansk, Poland (for my mum’s 60th birthday).  I decided I rather like this travelling thing, although it is just holidaying rather than full on travelling for now and want to keep doing it.  So this year we went to Belfast (for the Game of Thrones Exhibition/Our Anniversary), and Dubrovnik, Croatia.  And I decided before we went to Dubrovnik to buy a scrapbook to use as a travel scrapbook/journal.



I put in some pictures of my previous hols, as you can see above.   You can also see my little plastic wallet of supplies, which currently includes coloured pens, post it notes, and a newspaper article a friend from work cut out for me.  I have big plans to buy nice tape, ribbons, pockets etc to jazz it all up.  During my trip to Croatia I kept hold of some receipts, leaflets, coins etc to include in the scrapbook so it’s not just photos, which you can see to the right.

Below is the finished product (so-to-speak).  I printed pictures out on photo paper and they came out looking really nice.  I also glued in some small coins, and funny beans I got on holiday (the beans have smiley faces on them and came with our bill at the Dubrovnik Veggie resturant- Nishta).  I also turned my boarding pass into a ‘pocket’ to put the rest of the coins and beans in.  I also got a nice stone from one of the beaches we went to but its a bit big to stick in unfortunately…
