The last week or so has passed by in a bit of a blur. I've been coughing and sniffling away, not motivated to do anything much more than curl up on the couch and watch TV. Oh, the joys of cold and flu season. Thank goodness for Netflix!
Before the onset of this bad case of the blahs, the June Simple Scrapper Story Starter theme got me sorting though ephemera and beginning a mini album of our honeymoon. I've a looonng way to go before this album is finished but you have to start somewhere. And in this particular case, that's towards the end of our trip and not the beginning because that's what was inspiring me. :)
My thinking is that each day will have one spread in the album, a left and a right side. I'm not going to make that an unbreakable rule, but it's a starting point. There will be a mix of full page photos and page protectors. I intend the journaling spot (title font, line, text with a small date underneath) to be a point of consistency throughout the pages.
As November 29, shown above, was a travel day with few photos I included a pocket sewn from a Disney World photo frame to house maps and brochures from this portion of the trip,
On the back I added a collage of photos, created in Photoshop Elements.
I took over 300 photos on our first day in the parks - from rope drop at EPCOT through park close after Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom - but the 14 this spread includes captures the essence of our day.
Pretty darn magic.
I don't think anywhere does fireworks like Disney!
