I started scrapping the photos and stories from our 10th anniversary cruise almost as soon as we returned home in January of 2012, and I've worked on this project off and on over the past few years. Each time, I've enjoyed returning to these FUN memories and our vacation celebrating 10 years of marriage.
I ended up with two full 12x12 binders! Maybe that's a little excessive, however this was the first cruise for both of us and there were so many stories and photos and memories to capture. My albums are arranged in sections rather than chronologically. The ten sections are: Bon Voyage, The Ship, At Sea, Cozumel (New Mexico), GeorgeTown (Grand Cayman), Falmouth (Jamaica), On Board, Culinary Delights, Reflections, and Cruise Compass. Over the past few months, I've been working to complete this album, filling in missing gaps in each section.
The last page I created is actually the last page in the album and documents the fact that we recorded stories and memories real-time on the cruise using the travel journal I created from an old Moby Dick picture storybook.
Once I slipped this layout into the page protector, I simply had to add a label to the front & side of each scrapbook and place them on our memory shelf.
This is the first project completion toward item #37 on my 50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 list: Complete 10 Scrapbook Projects. What big projects have you completed lately?
