Vacation album

This is my favorite new project that i completed! It's an album for our camping trip last year, to the campsite that we visit every-year with a group of friends. I got this cute 4x6 album from walmart. And then used a October afternoon 8x8 paper pad for the paper. 

The album only holds 36 photos and i had to fit over 100 in here, so i picked my favorites and kept them 4x6, and then matched up the rest to either fit 2 per page or 4 per page. 

ever couple of pages, i stuck in a patterned paper, so i could write my journaling there, and add some embellishments to spruce it up a bit. 

this year i bought a disposable underwater camera, and i wanted to include these in here as well, rather then make a whole other album for them. So i picked my favorites and put them in the remaining pockets, and then glued an envelope to the back of the book, and stuck the rest of the photos in there. 

Once i had everything laid out it was so easy to compile! You could probably finish this in about an hour, or an hour and a half. I loved that i could do it in an afternoon, and i love the results!!
