Robbie's Florida Trip Photo Album Scrapbook

Recently found two very small photo albums with pictures from Robbie's 1984 trip to Florida to visit Grandma & Grandpa Aubele. It was the year after Robbie graduated from high school, and he flew down to visit them for a week. Grandma had labeled most of the photos on the back and I had Robbie tell me about the trip. I copied Grandma's notes on the pages with the photos and included Robbie's memories on separate 4x6 inserts to complete a Photo Album Scrapbook in this nice leather-like photo album that Robbie received as a college graduation gift a few years ago. I didn't really do a lot of scrappy stuff, just typed a few pages and added some vacation packing-tape-like sticker borders as embellishment, however I enjoyed making this album as a gift for Robbie. We both enjoyed going through all these photos and reading Grandma's notes.

love this book, love the colors they really compliment the tone of the photos. What a great book to look back on. Well done.

Love this idea... I'm going to make one of the trip to California my friend and I took in 1975 when we were all of 19yrs old. The photos are faded and not very good - but thats okay. Mostly, I want to record the memories of that trip before they fade as well. Thanks for the inspiration Melissa... I was thinking I should do something more current for this weeks PAS challenge - but these are the photos that speak to me right now so that's what I'll do... after all FPF is about inspiration so I'm gonna go for it.
