Blogging over at Scrapaneers | A digi "How To"

Happy Day-After-Thanksgiving friends! If you're on a break from Black Friday shopping, hop on over to the Scrapaneers blog. I wrote a little how-to on bleeding a photo outside of a frame. It's a fun technique that I really enjoy using on my scrapbook pages.

Here's a couple samples from pages I've made:

Some of my Scrapaneers Peers friends let me use some of their pages as samples. They're beautiful pages, check 'em out!

Vacation Album | Rome

I've got a couple more vacation album pages to share with you this morning. As you can tell, I've been very focused. Once I start a project I get so anxious to have the final product (the printed, bound book) in hand, that I scrapping pretty steadily. It's fun! I believe I'm getting kind of close to finishing the book. These are pages from the 1/2 day we spent in Rome. (FYI, spending a 1/2 day and evening in Rome is definitely not enough time, but if that's the time you've got you make the absolute most of it!) My next set of pages of places we traveled will be Venice. After that I think I've got a couple of miscellaneous type pages to create and that may be it. Right now I've got 21 2-page spreads completed (42 page!). Yup ... I'm impatient!! :)

In case you'd like to see closeups of the pages:

Vacation Album Pages | Mediterranean Cruise

Good morning! I want to share with you some pages I've completed for my vacation album in the last couple days. I'm surprised how quickly this album is coming along!  I must say ... I'm getting anxious to get a book ordered. I still have quite a few pages to make, but I'm still anxious!

NOTE ... this is going to be a photo heavy post ... but I'll have lots of beautiful photos and wonderful history to share with you if you're interested!

A couple more vacation album pages from this weekend!

I'm still busily working away at scrapping my vacation album. It sure is a fun project! I love putting it together but it's also so fun looking back at photos and jotting down the stories. Anyway ... for now I thought I'd share with you the pages I scrapped this weekend.
