From Here to There

We have Easter holidays right now and I've been fairly productive in the getting the house sorted side of things so I decided to tackle another project of mine, which is our road trip from 2010.  I started this album long ago and I put it to the side because I was tired of doing trip pages.  I tend to get this way - I can't do much of one thing or I lose inspiration.

However, I did do something quite brilliant before leaving Jamaica, and that was to get the bones of these pages done.  I separated my photos into regions and then into activities so I knew which photos I wanted to go together.  Then I made up templates and added the photos into them.  So, the photo placement and any blocking was done.  What was left?  Choosing the papers and embellies, finding a title and writing the journalling.

This page was one of the ones I'd gotten ready.  I haven't been in the mood to design anything lately - I'm just too tired to be creative and have to think about it - so I thought I'd try this one-pager, very clean layout.  I really enjoyed doing it - finding the right papers and embellies is fun so it was the perfect thing for me.

I wouldn't want to do all my pages this way but I have to say that from time to time, it's nice to have the option of doing it.  I think I may add this to my arsenal of scrapping techniques, especially when you've got a ton of pictures that you want to scrap in a certain order!
