Every January everyone starts talking about creating a journal to record our daily/weekly/ monthly events; or perhaps creating a journal of stuff we want to document.  I’ve never gone this route because I just didn’t want to create a complete 12” x 12” scrapbook based on general, everyday stuff for an entire year – way too much work!!!!  Then I came across these journals by Fancy Pants and they seemed to be the answer for me.  These journals are wire bound and contain 12 sections – perfect for creating a monthly journal.  Complete with journaling pages, photo pages and pockets, I thought it would be a good starting point for my 2013 journal.

I haven’t yet covered the front of my journal.  I’m not sure what I want to do with it, but I’m sure over the next few months, some ideas will come to mind.

 

For January, I wanted to document my trip to Anaheim, California.   I attended CHA, visited Disney and took a road trip to Los Angeles and Beverly Hills.

 

Using Moxxie’s Which Way Paper, I cut the banner to fit my first page and added my CHA ticket stubs.  On the adjacent page, I started journaling, added my ticket stubs and used papers from Reminisce and stickers from Adornit.journal-january2

 

The following pages are filled with assorted papers and stickers and journaling to document this trip.   Each section ends with photo sleeves and a pocket which is perfect for holding additional photos and memorabilia for the month.

I am hoping to create a section each month for stuff that’s going on.
