Hawaii Mini Album Part 1

While preparing for Hawaii, I was pining over making a journal/mini album of our trip. I had done this once before when we went to Park City but that was a pre-baby vacation! However, after reading a post by Amy Tan about her recent trip to Hawaii, I just had to do it. I gathered some scraps from my table..leftovers from other projects.. and made a collection of similarly themed tags, paper scraps, stickers, etc. I used the 8 x 8 Maya Road Binder Album which is a great album as long as you don't use too many bulky add-ons. Each evening, after Liam went to bed, I'd take all my supplies out and make the page for that day..just one layout. Here is Monday, Feb. 14th.....
(The postcard part is actually a flip out with other things written underneath it.)

Day number 2 along the western part of the island... I even glued on some sea glass pieces I found along Glass Beach.

Day number 3 along the eastern side of the island...

Our last day...
A final picture to remember....

I still have another page and the cover to post as well as some of the flip out sections. Be back later this week!!!


  1. Hi Jenny! What a fun-fun-fun idea!!! Leave it to Amy to inspire! I love what you've done so far. How exciting that you're going to Hawaii... I can't believe it's almost here. I remembered when you mentioned it months ago. Hope you're having a great week.

  2. PS!!! I didn't realize that you have already been and come back! I hadn't scrolled own yet to see. Your pictures are beautiful!
