I've not been blogging much recently because I've been busy making up a (long overdue) small album of a short break we took last May. We went to Blackpool to see the British Ballroom and Latin American Dance Championships. Last year I decided to make small albums of some of our trips as a way of remembering them. The idea was to pick a few photographs that summarised what we did rather than a detailed account. I started last year with our trip to Istanbul in April for which I used an 8x8 album. I had been meaning to make a minibook of our Blackpool and Lake District trip and finally managed to make a start on it last week. I had a small (@A5 sized) album from TK Maxx which I had picked up for £1. It was a bit beaten up but I thought it might be useful for something. Having finally got some pics printed I decided to use the album for this trip.
I'm not going to bore you with all the pages but here are a few to give you an idea:
|Views of the Lake District|
|The Tower Ballroom|
|The ballroom final heats at the Winter Gardens|
|John Ditchfield's glass studio and some of his work|
These are just albums for us to open up and look through from time to time to remind us of fun trips. I try to keep them fairly simple and let the pics and the small amounts of journaling tell the story.
