Project Life 2010 : Great Outdoors
Going back through my 2010 photos this year, printing them and creating a Project Life album has been just as fun as staying current with my 2014 album. Maybe even more so since I can work at whatever pace I want to. Since I'd had the beautiful Great Outdoors Themed Kit sitting in a drawer for a few months just waiting to be used, I figured it was finally time to get it out. Back in September of 2010, we visited Jay Cooke State Park with 6 month old Ephram. Fall in northern Minnesota is spectacular. I took a lot of photos on the this trip, so I didn't want to limit the number of spreads I used on it too much. I had no idea how many it would take, I just selected the photos I liked in order of when they were taken and stopped when I had filled a page. I ended up creating 5 full spreads.

Wood veneers work SO well with the woodsy Great Outdoors themed kit. The white space on the card below is actually an Avery label.
In this next spread I did something I've never done in my 2010 album before. I added a note about what happened in the future. Since I'm creating this album 4 years in the future, I figured, why not include some interesting facts? This bridge we stood on actually washed away in a heavy rain event about 2 years after we visited. Since both Beau & I had visited this bridge several times growing up, it was pretty crazy to read about that when it happened. Especially since we're weather nerds and all.
The next page included a ton of photos of Ephram sleeping during a second, and much shorter hike we made that day. It was pretty cute, and it was super difficult to pick which photos to leave out, so I got another whole spread out of that short stop.
Finally we made it to our campsite where we had dinner and did a quick photoshoot in the wildflowers before we put Ephram down to sleep.
The last page ended up being one of my favorites. Probably because of the 12x12 photo of Ephram & I. Again I used a couple of cards from the Studio Calico kits and a few fun embellishments.
I'm so glad I had blogged about this trip back then because I wouldn't have had many details to journal about without reading what I wrote 4 years ago.
Have you ever scrapbooked a vacation or trip from years ago? What did you use to remember details about it?
