Family vacation... the album begins

I have started an 8x8 album to record our 2013 family vacation.  We were away a full 5 days - the longest vacation we have had for over four years.  I took TONS of photographs and I plan to print up a bunch every few weeks to add to the album.  Hopefully it'll be done before year's end!

This layout is based on a sketch I found at Chic Tags for their Challenge Sunday:

It looks a lot brighter on screen than it does in real life! It's a bit of a change from my normal pages, but I enjoyed the challenge of using all the circles.  I personalised the page by adding handmade flowers and doodling around the edge.

Bazzill cardstock
American Crafts pearl brads
Jillibean Soup Sprouts journalling tag
Lil Davis Away We Go journalling sticker
Carolee's Creations AdornIt alphabet stickers
Lots of paper scraps - Kaisercraft, Daisy Bucket, We R Memory Keepers, 7Gypsies, Scenic Route, Doodlebug (and a couple I can't remember)


  1. Love this, and the way you made the sketch work for you. Those handmade flowers are great. Thank you so much for playing along with us at Chic Tags this week.

  2. What a fun take on the sketch!! Love how you mixed up the circles by adding in some of the flower shapes!! Thanks for playing along with us @ Chic Tags!
