I’m Back & I’ve Been to Melbourne!

I can’t believe it’s been a month since my last post.  Lot’s has happened during this past month and going to Melbourne with my 16 year old son was definitely a highlight.

I took so many photos and I wanted to document this special time in our lives so I had to do an album dedicated to our trip.  I’ve never done an 8.5 x 11 album and thought this would be the perfect size for this.  I’ve done some 8.5 x 11 layouts for my 12 x 12 album so I had an idea of what I was planning.  I thought I’d mix it up with traditional layouts as well as pocket pages of varying sizes.

I also thought Ali Edwards’ ‘Go’ story prompt and stamp set would work perfectly with this album along with bits and pieces left over from her previous kits.  I also used stamps from Kellie Stamps @ Giveagirlablog and my stash.

So I’d like to share with you the first few pages of my Melbourne album.

I should’ve known right from the beginning that it was going to be difficult to get selfies with Declan.

Knowing that it was going to hard getting photos of Declan I decided to do the next best thing and that was sneaky shots from behind.
