In the video, I use some pretty papers by Simple Stories and Watercolor crayons by Tombow called Yo-i.

Summer is almost here and that means road trips and traveling with the kids around here. I thought it would be nice to have a small photo album to add photos, memorabilia and stuff into while we are traveling. Like after a long day sight seeing, when we are back at the hotel it would be nice to have an album to write into. I love collecting ticket stubs, area maps and such stuff and so I created a couple of pockets into the album as well- so that we could store stuff in it along the way.
