Mileage Log Booklet

Diane Gibbs an Artisan Award Winner with Stampin Up and and one of the Crew Girls from the US for UStamp with Dawn and Friends, provided us with a sample of a cute little mileage log she designed.
Following her lead, I purchased a plain book from the Dollar Store and gussied it all up with the Loads of Love "truck" and trees from the "Lovely as a Tree" stamp sets. I decided to layer my truck and used designer cardstock and big eyelets for the tires. I sponged the sky with Bashful Blue and stamped the trees in Old Olive and Always Artichoke.
Here's a closeup of the truck wheels. I used the cropadile to attach these.
Because I forget everthing if I don't write it down right away I decided to make a template on Excel for inside the book to make it easy to record my travel details. Although I haven't done it for this sample, I'm thinking it would also handy to add tabs for the months and an envelope for each month to hold receipts plus some extra pages for Hostess Notes.
This would make a nice gift for the start of the new year. Possibilities are endless........... don't drive, make it into a place to record your exercise and walking routines......... hmmmmmmm, I'm sure someone does that! LOL.

Let me know if you like it.
