Talk about just making the deadline! We're getting ready to leave on vacation and I just finished last years vacation album! The sad thing is, I started the album last summer. I was trying to do the album without having the photos and I just can't scrapbook that way. I'm really motivated by my pictures. Not necessarily by the colors, but by the sizes and and such.
Anyway, I'm going to share this album in two posts because I took a lot of pictures.
This is the cover of my album, which I shared last summer when I started it :)
Here's a view of the album from the side. The front and back cover are black chipboard and the inside pages are pieces of October Afternoon patterned paper adhered together.
I took long skinny manila envelopes, that open from the top, and covered the front and back. This is a picture of the front.
This is a picture of the back.
This is my attempt at a picture of the inside of the envelope. I used it to keep maps, brochures and journaling. (Do you see the recipe card Tracy???)
Here's a full sized page, 6x8. I kept these pretty simple. Good grief, I have no idea why this took me so long! :)
The back side...
Here's another skinny envelope. I like this one because of the twine. No journaling, because it's hidden in the envelope :)
Okay, that's it for part I. Hope you enjoyed and will be back tomorrow for part II. We had a busy night last night and are in for a busy day today. Mike is headed to Chicago and will be driving his work car back today and Abie has two volleyball games tonight. Thanks for coming by today and I'll see you tomorrow. Have a great Thursday!!
