The Beach Journal

I heard that Molly likes to write, and so when contemplating a little gift for her, I decided to make a beach journal.

Unfortunately I didn't have the time to put a proper binding on it, but was able to whip up some cute and simple pages using Jen Maddocks Sand & Surf, Joanne Brisbois A La Plage and Anna Aspnes ArtPlay Palette Wander.  The lines are provided by Deena Rutter's Necessary Office Paper.

I duplicated several pages to give her at least 10 pages, cut them in half, punched holes and bound with ribbons.  Now I need to find some hole reinforcers to send her, since they started to tear a bit from frequent use.

I am happy to report the journal was a big hit.  She wrote in it every day and read it to us at the end of the trip, filled with insights and photos.
