Fiji Album

In January I started on a mini album from our holiday that we took during Easter 2008. I then put it aside until two days ago. Having found new inspiration to finish it -  as our next holiday to Mauritius is only two months away, I got to work. I finished it this morning. The album was inspired by this album by Ali Edwards. I purchased the kit from Cocao Daisy, but didn't decide what to use it for until this.

I took pictures of most pages, but not of all of them. To include lots of journaling I've added my blog entries of the daily blog I wrote in the time we lived in Australia, which I slot into pockets that I made out of each page. I haven't photographed all the blog entry pages.

I also made a video of the pictures of the album, but the quality isn't great, but as I went and found some traditional Fijian music with it, I still think you should watch it to get a true feel of what it was like.

Now, are you ready for some picture overload!

Supplies: Tinkering Ink chipboard album | Making Memories patterned paper + epoxy stickers + canvas alphabet stickers + canvas tags + chipboard letters + flowers + brads + metal clips + ribbon + clear stamps Passport | Ali Edwards clear Travel stamps | American crafts metal hinges | Three Bugs in a Rug clear date stamps | Staz'On ink Jet Black | red + black marker | Kikki.K white pen | Woodware corner punch | Catslife Press rubber stamp | Fiskars circle punch | EK Success circle punch

Are you still there? I hope you liked it. I'm very pleased with the end result, especially since I got so many pictures (59 I counted quickly) as well as so much journaling in such a tiny album.

Have a great evening!
