You'll notice that some pages don't have much journaling at all - I had too many photos and wasn't willing to leave any of them out. What I ended up doing is journaling on the back of the photo. I need to find a way to mark these photos with journaling on the back so that I'll remember the journaling for the future.
Also, some of the earlier pages are more embellished than the later ones. I am still undecided whether I like the look of the embellished pages better or not. Some days the cleaner pages appeal more and other days the embellished pages look better...I am not stressing about it since I can always go back and add more details at a later time.
Without further ado, the pages:
Some final thoughts:
1. This process worked really well for me but there are a couple of things that I would change. Next time, I will spend more time planning each page, choosing the pictures to fit the design. Although this will take more time during the picture selection stage, I believe it will save me some time in the assembly of the album. Also, I would probably add some digital embellishments to pictures before printing.
2. While I call this album complete, there are actually some things that I'ld like to add. I need to add some of our memorabilia like ticket stubs and local money. Also, the SD card from my husband's point and shoot camera got corrupted and is now being recovered at a forensic data recovery company. When (if) we get those pictures back, I plan to include them at the end of the album. They are mostly our family shots, taken by our guides.
Thanks for following along this week, I hope the information has helped :) I'm off to work on our Disney albums!
