Vacation Album

Hey my friends!

I've been scrapping away all week! And I'm thrilled with the progress that I've made... For the past few nights I've been working on my Spain vacation album and I love how it's turning out! I have sooo many photos. I really went overboard with our photos, but they're just so pretty and we had such an amazing time that I find myself not wanting to part with many of them. So, I used 4x6 protective sleeves and inserted them all in there (vertical and horizontals all together). Then I'm creating an opener page for each major city we visited and a few layouts throughout, etc.

I would share photos of my not-so-little project, but I really want to get it all done before I post it... It's a great way to finish an album that would otherwise be COMPLETELY OVERWHELMING. This way, I am just a little overwhelmed. LOL! My goal is to finish it all by this weekend, especially since my hubby challenged me to do this. He thinks I won't be able to do it and, boy, do I love challenges! :-)

I'm using my November Cocoa Daisy kit for most of the album (featuring Karen Russell's favorite products), along with some add-ons I purchased that month and stuff from my stash. I love this kit!!! I've been saving it for my Spain layouts and I'm really happy to finally be using it.



I am especially liking the Anna Griffin papers and cards, some of which came in this kit... She really does have some beautiful patterns.







What's inspiring you this week? Please share...
