My super simple travel album....

26 August 2011

I've finally finished it...Yay!
Once again before our trip away I created a little mini book skeleton to record our holiday.
I packed up some essential supplies....
(double sided tape, stapler, hole punch, scissors)
and a whole stack of ready prepared pages in varying sizes...
as well as a typed out sheet of page prompts
(like..."today we camped here" ....".the best thing today was.." )

So each day Id record our travels and details in a notebook and collect any tickets and relevant brochures along the way.
I began adding these into my album.... just leaving spots for the photos to be added when I got home.
(Its exactly the same process that I used last year for our trip to Darwin.....there are a lot more details here)

So I wont bore with details....
but here is a simple cover....I added some wheel tracks using a lego car...

These shots show all the pages in varying sizes....

















...and a peak inside...



Such an easy way to record our trip....
and it also gives me something to work on as we travel....I couldn't imagine not having something crafty to do.
