Road Trip

July 13, 2016

My husband and I had the most amazing holiday with our eldest and youngest granddaughters.  We took a road trip with our caravan all the way from Brisbane to Charters Towers.  All up we did a little more than 3,500klms!  We had a couple of long days travelling but the girls were really good.  We made up “Find it Charts” before we left and the girls would search for whatever was on the list.  004We had a lot of fun and built up some really amazing memories.  I loved seeing some of the places that Ron and I had already been through the girl’s eyes.

Anyway one of the things that we did to keep their enthusiasm was create journalling blocks 4″ x 6″ on which they could write what they had done that day.  I used MDS to create them.   006Abi is nearly 12 so she has created point form journalling and even documented what we ate, Ava is only 6 so hers is a little less detailed but covers the major points.   When we came home we spent a couple of days printing photos ( I have an Epson PictureMate which makes this so easy) and creating their Project Life pages (I still have to do mine!).  Those of you who come to my classes already know that Abi is a keen Project Life scrapbooker, so she has an album already.  Ava hasn’t got the “bug” yet so her album is a series of 4×6″ pockets which we have clipped together.  I think she will need an album because she was quite excited to get her photos printed to show her Mum and Dad.

I haven’t taken any photos of Ava’s album yet but thought you might like to see some of Abi’s pages.

Bye for now,

      Thanks Vicky. Hopefully the girls will remember for as long as me. And yes they are growing up too fast.

    Sounds like a wonderful trip, and those memories will be special to your grand-daughters for the rest of their lives! Love your journal card idea, and the ‘find it’ chart – great incentives to make the most of this trip and long journey. Well done to you and your husband:)
