As Time Goes By...

My latest journal page…
I have had this background in my small moleskin for ages and it seemed appropriate to use it for Dawn's Journal Journey's Ch20 challenge this month - "Numbers"
Featuring Marci and some dandelion clocks(they may be Inkylicious but I'm afraid Im not sure) Some string stripes and lots of green shades of distress inks.

Now, a mystery - yesterday I went to Paperchase to buy some new thin moleskins. We are going to France next week and I want to prepare a journal to take.
On the right a set of three moleskines - I usually buy the kraft coloured ones….…but……£9, whereas these grey ones - same paper inside, same description, £5.99. Purchased, then on the way out hubby spotted the journal on the left - with a little pocket, similar paper - £1.50 - so I now have enough small journals for a while! The Paperchase one is from a selection of different coloured tabs and have different papers inside, this one has no lines. I have started sticking the pages together as I usually do because the paper is quite thin. 
This size works for me to take away.Now I just have to decide how much I dare take as we are going to stay with my non-crafty ex sister in law(as in - my ex husband's sister)in Poitiers! Really looking forward to a big catch-up!
Thanks for looking, Chris

Love your journal page Chris, all the elements go perfectly with numbers.
Hope you have a good holiday in Poitiers. I know Poitiers used to have a man friend who came from there he was an airline pilot,hmmm that could have been useful!!! Anyway enjoy and can't wait to see your holiday journals. Pat xx

Hi Chris
I love those colours on your journal page and the stamping makes is feel like spring about to go in to summer. Really lovely and fresh.
How crazy was the pricing on those journals and look at what is found when we don'e think we are really looking.
I look forward to seeing filling these journals
