What do you do when you too many photos to fit on one page (or even a two-page spread)? One option is to create a vacation mini-album. My family and I went to Ireland on an unplanned trip to visit my uncle who was sick and I documented it in an album I called "10 days in Ireland". I kept the design simple - just one photo or two for each day and added my journaling on tape strips. I used patterned paper from one manufacturer - easy coordination! The base for my album was a chipboard album from Maya Road.
I used very simple embellishments - a punched circle with a number or word tag on it. This mini is a little heavier on the journaling because I had a lot to say. It was a bittersweet trip and it felt good to have it documented.
Monika used an 8x8 mini album to document a family vacation in Aruba. The base of the album is 8x8 but she incorporated a few extra photos on smaller pages:
Monika printed the extra photos, and backed them with cardstock. She then used her hole punch so that she could insert the extra photos into the mini. She added journaling on the back -- it tells the story of trying to get a decent photo of Mommy with her girls. I think they came out great!
Monika finished off the album by journaling the story of the trip including the highlights. She used her boarding passes and receipts as a background in addition to an Aruban coin.
Did you notice that both Monika and I included photos of messages we had written in the sand? Must be the sign of a scrapbooker! Come back tomorrow for my final installment of vacation week.
