For the journey ...

Whether we go out for the day or for a few days we plan what we will take with us.  Some like to plan more than others.
I never make lists of what I will need to pack when we go on holiday and spend the journey to the airport worrying about what I might have left behind.

But for our journey in July I have drawn up a list of things you might need.  Please, please do not go out and buy supplies especially for this challenge blog.  If you don't have any of the things on the list then improvise.  If you can't think of a way round the challenge, email me or ask me a question in the Facebook group.  Here's the list to download.

Each day through July there will be a PDF to download which will have all the information and links on it that you will find on the blog.  The quote and the bible verse will be in different fonts for you to cut up and stick in your journal.

However I know some people like to have the whole set all at once and with all the quotes and verses in one font.   So I have made two versions, one in the font Tahoma and one in another font which you can download here.
Quotes (Tahoma)         Quotes (mp)
Verses (Tahoma)          Verses (c)

With the challenge blogs I like each day to be a surprise but I know some people like to know what to expect so I have prepared an itinerary for you to download.  You can also use it as a checklist to tick off what you have done and what you have missed.

What else will you need?
You will need to decide how you are going to respond to the daily challenges.   I will be doing mine in an altered book and will be showing you what I do on my personal blog NewlyCreative every day.

If you don't want to alter a book you can journal, blog, scrapbook or record your response to the journal prompts in any way you choose.  It can be as simple as getting a small notebook and writing down things that come to mind as you read the blog.  It need be no more than that. 

Or you can get involved in the techniques and challenges using a sketchbook or on separate pieces of paper and making them into a book at the end. 

You could use scrapbooking techniques if you are a scrapbooker.  Here's a travel journal I made of a road trip through Arizona and Nevada.   You could do something similar with this 'journey'.

So what's next?
In my next blog post I will show you how I prepare my book.
