Greece Vacation Journal

"It was Greek to me." ---Servilius Casca, Julius Caesar

Recently, I was asked to create a vacation journal for a friend's son and daughter-in-law. They're heading to Greece so the theme of the journal revolves around the beautiful sites and colors of the country!

Used my trusty Bind-It-All to bind the book. 

All the images were found online and printed on a 
pearlized cardstock so they have a little bit 
of a shimmer to them. 

Found the pretty charms at Hobby Lobby.

Back cover. The covers are made from chipboard and
covered with a thinner scrapbook paper. I used some metal 
corners from Tim Holtz to protect the edges and I 
Mod Podged the covers for durability.

Inside of the cover and page 1. 

On the right, I included a kraft envelope covered on the back
with some scrapbook paper. 
I also attached a journaling card

Other side of the envelope and page 1.

The envelope is perfect for holding ticket stubs, receipts,
and other memorabilia.

Next couple of pages. Found all the images online. :-)

Included some familiar sites. The back of these cards can 
be used for journaling or for small photos.

All the main pages are actually top loading pocket pages. 
They'll be able to store more photos or larger bits and 
pieces they collect along the way.

These are my favorite pages! Love how this came out.

The page on the right has a little pocket where the newlyweds 
can insert a nice photo of themselves. 

Also included a mini paper sack for storing more memories.

The paper bag has a several journal tags as well.

Last couple of pages. I made a pocket on the inside of 
the back cover. 

The postcards can also be used as photo mats. 

Another fun project. Hope the kids enjoy themselves!
