I really did accomplish a lot at the crop I went to last weekend.
I was finally able to work on an album for our trip to Florida way back in 2007!
I've had the photos and the album for years. I just needed to set aside a good chunk of time to get started.
I know in my last post I said I completed 18 pages, but I did kind of have a basic formula to work with. And using pocket pages helped speed things up as well.
I will say this - the album is turning out completely different than my original plans and design ideas.
Since this album is going to have a lot of pages, I am only going to share a few pages at a time so the posts do not get overwhelming.
The photo is from when we first arrived in our hotel room. Loved our hotel and room!
The plane ride page includes our plane ticket envelope and the boarding passes still inside. I also included an envelope from our hotel that contains the receipt and plastic card key.
This is where I started using the pocket pages. That camera stamp from Amy Tangerine's Ready, Set, Go line by American Crafts is going to appear several times throughout the album :)
Here is a closer view of the layout on the left. Another huge change to the album is the use of handwritten journaling. I was originally going to type it all out. But while at the crop, I decided that I didn't want to save it for home. I wanted to go home with completed pages. And once I started handwriting, I realized I liked it better!
Another two page spread, following a basic theme of pocket page and full page.
The receipt is kind of important to me because the first thing we bought was a pair of sunglasses for Mike at a cart there on the CityWalk. I can't remember if he had lost his or just forgot them. But you can't be in Florida without sunglasses. And Mike was such a trooper letting Evan help him pick out a pair. You know they weren't going to be what he typically would buy with Evan calling the shots. :)
So there you have it! The first seven pages.
I will share a few more next week!
Also, planning on a "healthy living in 2013" post so you can see how that is going and share my goal for March!
Have a great weekend!
