Hawaii Scrapbook

I’ve been working like a crazy woman getting my scrapbook of my Hawaiian vacation done.

Here’s the cover. I used 8x8-inch books and found a nice beribboned chipboard label to stick on one end of the book.

Everything is kept pretty simple with the layouts and journaling bits.

I save everything when on a trip for using in my scrapbooks later: the resort's beach/pool use wristbands, tiny baggies of beach sand, bits of sea glass collected, flowers, sea shells, everything. On pages where I show pictures of drinks we enjoyed, I include the recipes.

It’s a good thing I saved four versions of every single thing I collected as I made four exact versions of this scrapbook—one for me, a gift for each of my two sisters and my niece.
