Beach Mini Album

I know, I am on a mini album kick right now. 

Since I purchased my "Bid it All", I have been making all kinds of little albums and I am loving it.
 I love the idea of finishing a project and being able to give each big event it's due. Yes, I will still do a simple two page layout in our family album, but some trips are just so special they deserve more than that. When it's that important, I believe a mini book is in order.

So with all that said, here is one more mini,

Our 2013 family beach trip...

This trip has been a tradition in my family since I was a little girl.
 My mother, brother, sister and all of their families take one week, every other year and plan our vacation together. 
It's so wonderful to have a chance to slow down and catch up with one another.

This album starts off with our Family portrait and a small  "flip open" page with our daily schedule for the week.
 This is the first time I've done this, and I love it. 
 It's a great way to document daily details I want to remember.

Why, yes that is a photo of the storage unit for our beach chairs.
Those are the tiny details I want to remember 
but would never use that photo in a regular two page layout.
 It would take up too much space, but not in a mini book!

This was my grand-daughter's first time seeing the ocean. 
She was not impressed.

I made several waterfall or photo stacks in this album.
Again, it's a great way to get more photo real estate!

I love this page! 
I bought this little tie-dyed t-shirt 23 years ago for my daughter at this same beach.
 We saved it all these years, and now my grand baby is wearing it!

Another photo stack

So there you go, one more Mini!


  1. This mini album is gorgeous! I always wanted to scrap this way when I did paper scrapping. My pages never looked like that.

  2. Thank you Cindy! it was my first project with my "Bind it All" and I love the way it turned out!
