Scrapbooking Spring Break with Lisa Andrews

Last month our family was able to travel from Arizona to Maryland and North Carolina for our spring break. Of course, I was busy taking pictures on both our "big" camera and my phone.

The first layout I want to share today includes photos taken on my phone and shared through Instagram. Out of all of the social media outlets available, right now Intsagram is my favorite. What could be better that sharing photos with your friends and commenting on them?

 It was so fun to work with the new Glitz lines on this page. Here I mixed pieces from the Happy Travels and Pretty in Pink lines. I love the bright pink with a splash of blue!

This layout was inspired by the Glitz Designs April blog challenge. We were challenged to create a spring themed layout and spring break certainly seemed to fit the bill for that topic. I was also inspired by the grid pattern in the challenge photo and incorporated a grid of photos on my page.

While I had the Happy Travels line out, I decided to would be perfect for documenting our spring break week in my Project Life album.

I was so excited about all of the airplane elements in this line because not only did we fly to get to our destination, but we visited Kitty Hawk, NC where the Wright Brothers first flew a plane. Plus we visited the Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C.  Lots of aircraft adventures to document from our week!

Since I had so many photos that I wanted to include this week, I used a page protector originally made for coin collectors to hold a collection of my 2x2 pictures. The page protector had 25 slots, but I didn't need that many, so I just trimmed it down to 10 slots. Here's a look at both sides of the page of small photos.

Did you notice that I used some of the same photos on my Project Life pages on the "Everyday is an Adventure" page? I love documenting the highlights in the Project Life album and then pulling favorite photos to help tell specific stories on my layouts. I think the two styles of scrapbooking bring a nice balance to preserving family memories.

Thanks for stopping by today!
