Altered Camping Composition Notebook

Camper's Journal

.50 Cent Style

Camping with three big dogs can get a bit "harry" if you know what I mean.
I wanted an inexpensive journal to keep with the camper to write down notes for the campsites we visit. This way when planning for future visits, we know firsthand the pros and cons of each park and the best sites for our needs.
That said, we need privacy, water access, and a medium size site.
Who wants to be next to the couple with three big dogs, right?
And, water access has to be just right. Too much access and we have wet dogs the entire time. Too little access, and the puppies are not swimming.

Enough about the dogs, let's get to the ART!
Take a $.50 cent Composition Notebook since this book will take a beating and
add some awesome Images from Cricut "You Are Here" Collection.
Papers are Jack and Thin Cuts and Stamps are Jack Cardmaking.
The bears are die cut from birch bark I found on the ground while camping.
I left quite a bit uncovered because I liked the insides of the covers. 
 
The back looked great too with just an ADK "sticker" slapped on the back.
Coordinating Pen created by pulling off end and adding some rolled Jack paper.

If you love the Jack Paper Kit and Thin Cut Dies and Stamp Set, 
be sure to visit my Shopping Site before August 31, 2017. They will be retiring.
