This and That in Telford - Travel and Special Event Journal / Smash Book

Wow what an amazing, action packed weekend I have had!  I spent it with some of my favorite people, my Stampin' Up! Team (the Stampin' Super Stars)  and friends at the Stampin' Up! Regional Training in Telford.  I love these events when we all get together and always come home with loads of lovely memories and a head buzzing with ideas!

I decided that it would be great to capture these in one place and my This and That Journal is an ideal place to do that. Today I thought I would show you some of my progress so far.

Here is the cover - I kept it very basic as this was going to be slung into my handbag and passed around a lot.  Now I am back home I will probably add some more to it - there is plenty of room!  So far I have literally just rubbed two Ink Pads (Pool Party and Crumb Cake) over the chipboard to colour it and give a lovely mottled effect.  I ran some Washi Tape along the inner edge.  Then I stamped the letters of Telford on some of the This and That DSP and cut them out and stuck them on.   

I wanted this book to be more than just about me - The people I meet and see at these events are a huge part of what makes them so special so I wanted to capture that too.  So I took a Poloroid Camera with me and as I took people's photos I got them to write in the book and add their photo - where they wrote was totally up to them.  Here are just a few of the pages I have ended up with.

There are lots of these guest book / autography book type pages dotted through the book and I will go back and add my stories between them.  I am looking forward to doing so as there are so  many fun things I want to remember, a fun meal out with the team, our time crafting together and much much more.
