WOYWW 80

This will be my last WOYWW for this year, (I think) as I will be away for the next two. So to those of you who only visit on WOYWW, I hope you have a very good Christmas and New Year and I will see you in January. For the rest of you I will try and post whilst I am away.
So what is there to see today? My book of course! I still don't know where I got the idea from to make this before I went and fill it in whilst we are there!!!


From this angle you can see the front cover and the great pile of papers that I have accumulated over the last year. I decided I was going to cover the pages with Christmas paper and then attach post cards, tickets and the like to the pages. I know the colours are going to clash but I hope the idea will work. I have made some pockets on a couple of the pages and I can add more if I need to. The small spiral book you can see to the left we will take to write in each day or trip and stick the pages into the main book when we get time. I just hope it works.
If you would like to join in on Julia's great worktop blog hop just have a look here for the list and instructions on how to get started.

Thanks for reading,
Cath

Yes, yes, please post photos of your trip. I'm doing an AB on Asia and I would LOVE to see photos from Bangkok. Glad you are adding pockets. They will come in handy when you don't have time to add the ephemera you have collected. Be sure to save your ticket stubs, any receipts, even if it's for coffee, freebie brochures, etc. And have a FUN, SAFE trip. I'll be checking in often (#4).

Have a wonderful trip and it is so nice you are trying to journal each day as it is so easy to forget things once you are home and try and put it all together. #79

Oh it will work alright Cath, after all the trip is over Christmas so it's fitting to have that running as your background theme. Have a fantastic holiday, look forward to hearing all about it in the New Year. Happy Christmas! Travel well.
