Things have been crazy this summer, Sammy cheering, work, vacations, etc... It hasn't slowed down yet by no means... Just when I saw a light at the end of the tunnel, I was hit up with a trip to MI in August, possibly another to Indy early fall, and maybe a penguins Blue Jacket game in Columbus. (You see our problem is that we don't think it's a big deal to just pick up and drive 4-6 hours to visit family...) so we go. But I love it and so does my camera.
The travels don't just stop with me and the hubby, I think it all started with hockey and the traveling we did with Jason, so my kids are always off and running somewhere too - It's great - let them see this awesome world we live in!
My oldest, Ashley just came back from a vacation with her boyfriend's family from the beach. One of my struggles has always been to get them to start capturing their memories.
How can I make it easy and fun? Duh! Pocket pages!!
So I picked up a Snap! album binder (by Simple Stories) & a few variety packs of the pocket pages to go with it. (it's small and not as intimidating as a 12x12, and oh so cute too...)
Ashley sent me a photo & texts every day, so I printed these photos and the messages (as screen shots). *dont forget to grab Tweets and Instagram messages as well. I added some digitally printed journal cards and some hand crafted journal cards to the mix, so she could easily document and add her photo's where she wanted them. I put everything into random pockets, and I gave it to her when she stopped by on her way home. It was that fast to create.
I added a few of the divider pages, and maybe I will create some more journal cards for her stocking.
I dont have any photo's of the finished book, so bear with me... I was just more in a hurry to get it done, maybe I can get Ash to send some over and update this post later.
Jason commented I never made him a book for his hockey travels...hmmm (can you hear the gears churning?)... I have everything documented already in my PL - and they do make these binders in black... anything is possible!!
