Using Photos....

I've been printing out some photos and using them in my travel journal. I've just been printing them on plain paper, and have to be careful not to get them wet, because that printer ink runs something terrible. But I like using some else can I capture that look when my mom and dad were reminiscing about old times at their first home:

As always, you can click on the picture to see it larger...much easier to read that way. Here's one from when Joe and I went out to see the lava flowing into the sea. It's an amazing sight.
And here is one from when Ted and Jenny and I went driving up the Hamakua Coast:
At first the the type Aish part of me freaked out about having the trips all mixed up in the journal instead of in chronological order. But I'm journaling bit by bit, about whatever strikes my fancy. And I'm also journaling around pages that I created while I was there, and on pages I had stamped with park stamps or postmarks while there. So my journal will be a collection of memories in no particular order. And lots of the pages are being done after I'm home and have more time to work on them...some purists only do theirs on site. But that's not me. And who is going to care anyway? The journal police?? I'll tell you what...creating a journal this way certainly extends all the fun of the trip way past the time I came home on the plane :D

What a fun and interesting way to journal.. I love it!! You capture great moments and it's so fun to look at.. very creative. I really like how you printed the pictures yourself on paper... gotta try this!
