Travel the World - Not-My-Typical-12x12 Week

Welcome to Not-My-Typical-12x12 Week here at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces. Each day this week I'll be sharing a layout that is not my traditional 12x12 layout. These layouts will be various sizes and formats.

Today's layout uses a divided page protector, this one a 12x12 with four 6x4 slots and one 12x4 slot, and once again uses Shimelle's cross-referencing concept. These photos document our first trip abroad together, an 18-day trip that took us to Russia, Italy and the UK. (Some of you may remember the inauspicious beginning to that trip recorded here.) When we returned, I created a huge block of 12x12 pages for our Travels Abroad album, however I wanted to include a snapshot of that trip in our 2007 album.

The journaling box lists the dates we were in each country and then the journaling reads: This trip is documented in detail in our Travels Abroad (Volume 1) scrapbook - lots of notes and memories and photos are recorded there! Just for the record, there is not yet a Travel Abroad Volume 2, however Volume 1 is full and I'm optimistic that we'll travel abroad again in the near future.

The divided page protector helped this layout come together very quickly. Do you use these types of pages protectors in your albums?

I love the effect of the page protecters....I've never used them....but after Shimelle's 'Cover to Cover' class bought some...and they will definately be used in my 2012 album.

Clever! That's an interesting format for a divided protector, too, I've not seen that before :)

I've only occasionally used them myself but I have big plans to do so for next year!

Haven't seen those page protectors in my area yet, but I love the idea.

I've got some of those page protectors and have used them behind another layout page. I do like my scrapbook photo album pages, just haven't done it often. Never sure why.

These pages are so awesome! I just love what your doing. That must have been one fabulous trip! Anxious to see more!

No I haven't used these types of pages but I'm thinking it would be a great idea and might speed up my scrapbooking!
