National Parks Blog Hop!

Welcome to the June Blog Hop! This month we are road trippin’ with the National Parks kit!

The last week of May my family and I took a trip to Colorado. When we got home, my pizza box was waiting for me on the front porch. I make a point NOT to peek at the Club Scrap kit spoilers, I love the surprise. And what a surprise! The National Park kit was PERFECT for my vacation photos!

This month’s technique challenge was just the project I was looking for when planning how to scrap my vacation photos. All of the pictures were taken with our cell phones, and I discovered the Walgreens photo app for my iPhone. I uploaded my pictures and when I picked them up, the Instagram and Hipstamatic photos were printed 4×4 size. Perfect for the little square album! I adjusted the size to fit my photos and voila! 

I made a Pinterest National Parks mood board and found some really neat vintage travel posters. I resized them and printed them out on the cream cardstock. 

I had so many pictures! I ended up making little flip books on each page. 

 A few of the 4×6 photos needed a place and I trimmed them to fit in the little  pockets on some of the pages. I backed them with card stock so that they won’t bend with use. I love this vintage travel poster! 

This was the pic on the reverse side of the Vail poster. Lots of group selfies on this trip!

These little flip books filled up fast! 

There’s a whole lotta fun memories crammed in this little book.  It is so fun to share with all the interactive bits. I’ll definately be making this project again and again! Next up on the hop is Annette’s Digital Musings. Thanks for stopping by!
