Fun In The Sun
Whew! It has been a super scrappy weekend! I feel like I've accomplished quite a bit and cleared off a few of the partially completed projects I had going.
This post is another cascading album I started last spring. I know....talk about procrastination! But here's the thing, I love designing the projects whether it's a card, layout or mini-album but I never seem to add any pictures to them! This is actually what started me down the road to Project 365. Repeat after me....I must take pictures, I must take pictures....you get the idea.
Anywhoo....A cascading album is usually made from chipboard and the sizes of the pages are staggered with the front being approx 7 inches wide and the last page approx 11 inches wide. They originally were only available in brown cardboard color, but Bo Bunny has designed several colored albums where the pages can be mixed and matched. Here's a photo of a mixed green and white album so you can see what it looks like when I start out.
Here are a few of the COMPLETED!! pages from our trip to Miami last February. I wasn't on the whole 'must take pictures' train yet, so I didn't have a lot to work with, but I think it turned out OK. I really wish I'd used a digital camera for the sunset photos at Key West. I used my phone to take the pictures and they look really great when sized at 2 inches, but when enlarged to actual photo size just get all blurry. Lesson Learned.
This last page actually has a pocket between the wave and red section and it's the perfect size for my map of the Miami area that's falling apart at the seams because we used it so much. I don't think I've ever navigated so much in my life! I may have taken us on a few wrong turns, but we made it to where we were going eventually!
