Travel Journal & ATC

I finished my Travel Journal last night & love the colors & beads & ribbon!!!

I decorated the inside pages with leftover rub-ons, travel stickers and such. Plenty of room for Tim Holtz to put his autograph :-)

I really like the elastic that holds the pages closed & the base for the journal only cost me $1.99 at Goodwill!!

So, this is where I'll journal the daily happenings and clip on ticket stubs & other bits of ephemera so I can remember the moments when I get back home & start scrappin' the fun. I'm hoping I can get DH to write in it, too...I think I can without twisting his arm too much!!

This is a picture of my Alaska ATC.

I used holographic wrapping paper for the background to look like the northern lights and a great picture of Denali.

I popped a tiny eagle - yes that is supposed to be an eagle!! And I cut out totem poles & popped them up on the card as well.

The title of the card is Dena'ina - The High One. Also known as Denali and Mt. Mckinley.

Beautiful travel journey...you are gonna have so much fun writing in it!
I can't wait to see your ATC in person! What a terrific idea to use the wrapping paper. Yes, everyone here uses the term Denali...only wish you all could have an opportunity to see it too!
