Hong Kong Mini Book

How cool is this....I am still halfway across the world from home, and I am able to do a blog post. It blows me away! All I can say is thank goodness for iphones, macbooks and cameras. Those would have to be my top three possessions I would take to a deserted island.
I bought the "fancy pants" brag book, and decorated the front cover before I left. I also packed several of the papers and some embellishments from the "it's the simple things" collection, as well as a couple sheets of sassafras letter stickers and 7 gypsies 97% complete stickers. I figured that packing just a small collection of goodies, I would be able to do my book along the way.
So here it is.... I am glad to say that I have kept up my mini book (and project life) on a day to day basis.

I have either had some pictures developed at the one hour photo print stores, which I have then picked up later in the day en route back to the hotel, or I relax my very weary feet over coffee whilst I wait for them.
The small pictures that you see, I have printed those out on my little handy dandy portable "pogo" photo printer. I have to say that this has been quite a useful thing to have with me. I actually love it to just be able to print out a quick pic.
I knew that I wanted to do this book whilst being away, because the truth of the matter is, that once home, the chances are it just never gets completed, either because the busy routine of life does not permit the time to sit down and complete and entire mini book, and more so, after a trip, the excitement is kinda over along with the end of the holiday.
My pencil case was packed with just a few things: a tape runner (and refill), small scissors, mini stapler, journaling pen and a couple of rolls of happy tape. However I also did pack my paper trimmer. Yep, that's it!

I hope that the next time you are going away, you will prepare a little bundle of goodies to take along for the ride with you!
