My original plan was to take some Polaroid 300 pics so that I could create a quick mini-book or page or whatever from our camping trip.
Then I thought I would order some 4x6s.
Then I changed my mind again (I can do that because I’m a woman-I remind men that when I’m at work too) and decided that I would post some photos on my blog so that I could save them on my phone and then print them on the Polaroid POGO printer (I LOVE Bluetooth!).
First things first-I decided that I really loved the way the front of my 4x6 Explore notebook turned out for Shimelle’s class (See the post here) that I wanted to make a cover similar to that. So that is how my cover was born.
I also found a piece of ribbon that was just the right shade of blue in my scraps, so I threw that in too.
Then I went to town. I used lots of butterflies, letter stickers, pen, and stamps. And tags from Elle’s Studio-you can find them here.
I used Polaroids, photos from my Blackberry, and photos from my Rebel Xsi.
I didn’t spend a ton of time on the pages-in fact I put the whole book together on Sunday afternoon.
I really just wanted to get the memories down on paper while they were still fresh.
If it hadn’t been for Shimelle’s class, I probably wouldn’t have been inspired to have an adventure at all.
Much less taken the time to create a mini-book about it.
We had a fabulous weekend. And I had a fabulous time reliving it doing what I love.
Thanks for looking!
