Embellishing Focus | Traveller's Notebook by Caroli

Traveller's notebooks have been something I've admired from afar but always wanted to attempt. So, this project is important for several reasons: first, it's the first time I've documented a trip on the go. I was afraid of not being able to accomplish it (I am a complete fail at daily documentation) but I worked nightly during the trip and also used airport waiting time and even on the plane to work on it.
Second, this project documents the wonderful trip I made last month when I went to Costa Rica to teach a scrapbook class. It was the first time I taught a class out of my country and had such a blast, certainly it is a memory I wanted to document on the go so I didn't miss any of the important details.
I don't know if there are rules for making a TNB, but in my case I used it like a diary, where I wrote my feelings during this trip and also documented all the things I made. In this page I also wrote some goals for the trip.

I used So Punny collection for the class I taught, and my sweet friend and the woman behind the event, Elvira, ordered some stinking cute cookies featuring the typewriter and sewing machine icon of the collection, how cute is that!! Of course I documented it :)

After the class I had the joy of spending some more days in the country enjoying its wonderful beaches and wildlife, I loved how I was able to document all these great memories.

In this page I used a tiny envelope to add a few more pics and memorabilia which I held into place with another Jelly Clip because it was too adorable not to use.
These two photos are so silly bt I loved them! When my friend Elvira told me about all the wildlife in the park I got the idea that I needed to take some selfies with as many animals as possible (yeah, I'm that crazy!). I was lucky enough to score a selfie with a monkey and one with an iguana, it was so much fun!

This certainly was a memorable trip and I am so glad I was able to documented it on the go, because I  wrote all my feelings and ideas at the exact moment they were happening :) I hope you liked this idea and give it a try maybe on a future trip, if I could, you can! See you on a next post, hugs!
