Throwing down the gauntlet

A challenge came my way this week via my sister Ruth.

Here's what the challenge said.

"Here are the basics for your Scrapbook on the Road Project.  Your challenge is to prepare your pages prior to travel to the US.  You may use additional items from your stash.  Once in the US you are required to update it daily, if possible, and to create a full record of your two weeks in Orlando.  You may bring a small scrapbook kit with you ~ glue, pen, scissors etc.  Foundation pages may be blogged prior to travel.
Please advise acceptance of Scrapbook on the Road Project/Challenge."

I of course accepted the challenge at once and started by un-sticking the front cover of the journal I had already started and re-used it on the front of my new journal.  I've taken the binding off for now and replaced it with a few book rings just to make it easier to move things around inside.
I then spent a lovely afternoon yesterday listening to Dermot O'Leary on BBC Radio 2 whilst I made up a few journaling cards & embellishments to go on the pages inside.  I made one for each day we would be away.  There are several blank, lined and graphed pages to fill so there should be enough for all my rambling etc.

I'm also going to make up some Dymo labels for a few places we might visit and I'll have a bag with extra embellishments in it just in case I feel the need to use one or two.

It's all so exciting and we still have 5 months to go :0)


  1. Those wee cards look fab ~ I may have to scraplift! I haven't made a start on mine ~ we have exactly the same stuff, in you hadn't realised. I'm thinking of having different sections: pre-flight planning, all aboard, etc...

  2. this will be fabulous to take with you. I just love those journaling cards. I brought a book from paperchase to use last October when we went. It was a great way to record what we done and to include memorabilia.

  3. What a thoughtful sister! This looks such a wonderful preparation. Every time I go away, I keep meaning to do this and never do. Looking forward to reading more!

  4. You certainly dealt with Ruth's your embellishments and journaling tags!
