The travel journal is made by using Fancy Pants new Brag Book. I carefully took the book apart and reorganized the pages to the order I wanted the pages to be in. After I finished the pages, I carefully put the book back together. I even had some blank pages left. So I plan on using them on future layouts for journaling. I will cut some in half or thirds to use as journal blocks on the layout. I used some seashells I got at the beach in Antigua on the front cover of the journal. The cover was colored using the new Distress Stains. I used Vintage Photo and used the Distress inks in Aged Mahogany, Faded Jeans, and Walnut Stain. I started each section (port of call) of the book my journaling a little about the island and what we did for an excursion. Then I put photos of the excursion and then in the pockets I put tickets, receipts, brochures, etc. I also took photos of the towel critters and souvenirs I got and put them in the journal as well.

The post card holder looks like a backpack, hence the 2 ribbons on the back of the holder. I got the instructions from Scrapbook-Crazy website but modified it to make it much larger to hold the post cards.
