Every summer we take a daytrip to Stockholm to visit one of the many museums there. This year we picked Medeltidsmuseet. I highly recommend it, especially if you have young children. Our kids loved the small scale model of medieval Stockholm and ran through the houses to see it all. There is no entrance fee and there is a beautiful park just outside the museum.

We also found out that Dunkin'Donuts had opened a store in Stockholm and went to get a box of donuts from them. Maybe I'm a little weird but I'm always disappointed in donuts. They look and smell delicious but the taste to me is meh. I guess I just don't like donuts!

You may remember I posted a mini album about our July vacation about a month ago. Even though I had made the mini I wanted to document our trip in our PL album as well. It ended up filling the first five pages of July. 

I always feel good when I am able to fit a few cards from older kits. Some of these cards are over a year old. I've also gotten hooked on a new font for my journaling - Gabriola cursive. When I size it to 8 I can fit a ton of writing in a small space, and it's still readable and looks good.

As you can see I have switched to a 9x12 format for the second half of the year. I'm not sure what I think about it yet. I'm still so used to the 12x12 pages that it takes a lot more planning to put these smaller pages together. I may go back to the larger size in January. We'll see!

What size is your PL and how do you feel about? Will you be changing sizes, or are you happy with it?
