travel album {after - part 1}

I have finished the first part of my travel album...just in time to add part 2! I plan on adding journaling & photos from our cross country trek to WA which is why I'm calling this 'part 1'.

I have pretty much filled up this album with the exception of one page so once I get to WA I'll need to create more pages. Just didn't get a chance to do that before all of my scrapbook goodies were packed up for their travels. But that's alright cause I have a feeling I won't be feeling like scrapbooking on the road after all the driving we'll be doing.

So here's the 'after' pics from the travel album. To see the 'before' pics head on over to this post.

Most of the papers & embellishments for this album came from misc Noel Mignon kits & a few things from my own stash.
I didn't make any changes to the 1st 3 pages. I did add some journaling to the backside of the map.
I also changed up a few pages. The page on the right was actually further back in the book but I wanted to use it for the picture of my son sitting in the cockpit which was on our first flight. That's the great thing about these books - just because you created it one way doesn't mean you can't change it up to fit your needs!
New Jenni Bowlin stamp for journaling, Echo Park tag (Jump & Jive kit) , Jillibean Soup tag with alphas from the new Mary Ellen kit.
Photos & postcards. I grabbed postcards from the states we had layovers in. On the way there we stopped in Minneapolis, MN & on the way back Salt Lake City, UT. By the way, Sharpie markers are great for journaling directly on photos.
On the backside of the postcard I added the stubs from our plane tickets & some Pink Paislee tape.
Instax pics, ticket stubs & more postcards
Journaling on the shipping tags along with some photos. Don't forget to take pics of food. It's amazing how much a photo of food can bring back memories of a restaurant! October Afternoon stickers from Mary Ellen kit.
Ephemera from restaurants - a drink coaster, napkin & take out menu.
Journaling about our new house along with an Instax pic.
Another Echo Park tag with journaling on the back, movie stubs.
Another postcard with a photo added to the back, another October Afternoon sticker.
I used the envelope to keep some things that I didn't put in the album & added some photos to the back with some of that great new Hambly washi tape.
And again, another postcard with a photo attached to the back.
I also had the kids write a little something about our trip to WA :)
I'm saving the last page for some of our road trip along with more pages that I'll add when we get there. 
I used the envelope in the back to keep extra Instax photos & other memorabelia.
And that's it for now. Soon I will have about 11 states worth of memories to add to this album!

To be continued...
