My family recently went on a cruise and between the 11 of us, we managed to take over 500 photos! I knew it would be virtually impossible to scrapbook all of those photos. I decided to make my task more manageable and create a "photo" album instead.
I found this great special issue from Simple Scrapbooks to get me started. The issue is filled with lots of different approaches to creative photo albums. It is probably one of my favorite issues.
I narrowed down my photos to about 200 of my favorites. Next, I purchased a simple photo album from Joanns. The faux leather cover is perfect knowing that my little guys will look at this often.
I simply slipped my photos in the sleeves. I left some sleeves empty to journal and make "mini" pages. To keep things simple, I used one paper line from Anna Griffin and matching embellishments.
I finished the entire album in less than 2 weeks by working on it a little each evening. I actually made 2 of them at the same time so that I could give one as a gift. I highly recommend trying this when you have a large volume to photos from a trip or an event.
