Hi there,

Today, I am  sharing a Travel Journal created with the DCWV's New Stateside Collection.  These papers are perfect for traveling, Military and Miss You themed projects. Creating fun journals like this are great for road trips and an awesome way to document your adventures. I look forward to documenting new memories in this journal on our next family trip. I’m including a quick and easy tutorial below:
