Postcard Challenge Episode 2 - Spain

My completed Postcard Booklet. I have added plastic pockets, taped once the card is inserted so they won't
slip out. I soon realised I preffered to be able to see both sides as I and others will be looking through in time to come, especially when it is full. i have used various travel stamps, back and front. Two large rings with lots of blue and brown shades of ribbons.
Spain - My visions of the country are , spectacular old churches, Saville oranges, Spanish Equestrian School, Royal Family and Spanish Flamenco dancing - hence the decorated fan. What makes you think I am not a lying on the beach, type of person?
Hermione's parents, first PC to her, is from Spain and reads :-
Spain Jan. 13th. -----Hello dearest, pleased all your books and equipment arrived safely at school. Of course being Muggles, we had great difficulty acquiring some of them, until a school govenor told us you could go to a place called Diagon Alley, I know you will enjoy the school, let us know about it. We are well. Love Mum and Dad.
P.S.Sadly, I am having a problem with Blogger and commenting, both on mine and others, this is preventing me from adding it to Darcy's Mr. Linky and from making comments on those who have successfully
 up-loaded to her blog. I am hoping this will soon be resolved, for I am about to tear my hair out and have a screaming fit. I am looking forward to the next country and to further developing what is to come with Hermione and her parents.

  13. I read the HP-books last year, started out to see if my oldest could read them or if I thought they were maybe to scary for him... Have to admit I loved the story very much!
    Looking forward to your idea of background info on Hermione and her parents! :)
    What a great idea to make pockets for the cards. Your book looks wonderful already. ♥
    I haven't figured out how to store them (yet)... But working on it! :)
