Scrapbooking Travel

Yosemite National Park

I have a difficult time scrapbooking my travel.  I am overwhelmed by the amount of photos I take and all of the memorabilia I inevitably bring home.  I have embarked on a couple of scrapbooking projects though to document the places I go.  One of the projects I have mentioned here before, and that is my National Parks Pages, the one for Yosemite is above.  For every National Park I have visited (and my goal is to visit them all), I have a page identical in layout to the one above.  It has simplified so much the process of documenting my visits.  It doesn't cover everything, but it's a start at getting things documented.

I have also started a States Visited project with the premise being to make a page about every state I visit (I plan also to visit every one of the 50 United States).  The colors used on the pages are taken directly from colors in the state flag.  I will document how I have done both pages in an upcoming tutorial.  At least I feel I am getting some portions of my travels documented.  I know I need to let go of a lot of the memorabilia I bring home and just get the trips done.

Speaking of scrapbook travel, Cocoa Daisy is sponsoring a trip to Mykonos Greece September 20 – 26, 2010, featuring scrapbooking power houses Ali Edwards, Jenni Bowlin and Karen Russell (not as familiar with her work, but her blog is amazing).  The cost is $2995 (probably doesn't include airfare).  While I would LOVE to go to Greece, I don't think I would want to go there on a scrapbooking retreat.  I would be too antsy about going out and seeing and doing.  I can scrapbook when I get home.  In any event, it sounds like a great trip.

Teaching a "Carve Your Own Rubber Stamp" class tonight, and then it's a full day at school again tomorrow.  These long days on Mondays and Wednesdays are starting to catch up with me.

I have been documenting my life this week…but not taking nearly as many photos as I did last year.
