Honeymoon Album Progress #2

Surprise! I didn't get the album done as fast as I thought because life got in the way. haha But I thought I would share part 2 of the album's progress!

For this 2-page spread, I also decided to stick in an 8.5x11" page for LOTS of journaling front and back! I think it really adds the best memories to the book because I'm able to add a lot of details that I wouldn't otherwise fit on the layouts.

So that's the progress of the album so far. It's coming along! The hardest pages are coming up: HOGWARTS. Its going to be SO hard to get all the photos and journaling crammed on to a reasonable amount of layouts. haha I think I'm also going to add a page toward the end of the book with a pocket for our receipts, rental car information, packing lists, and any other memorabilia leftover from the trip. (I save EVERYTHING on trips. haha)

Is anyone else working on a travel book right now and want to share!? Even if its one you've done int he past: I want to see it, so LINK ME UP!
