In late 2005, The Brainy One and I left London for a 6-weeks-long round-the world delayed honeymoon. It was on this trip that I was introduced to scrapbooking (by K in Australia) and our subsequent scrapbook was my very first attempt at pairing photos with paper and journaling. Thank you, Creative Memories.
Looking back sixteen years later and I felt compelled to re-do the whole album in a Project Life style, with added 12×12 pages here and there. 🙂 I started with photos from Singapore that I felt deserved more than a divided page protector. (More on those Project Life pages coming soon.)
The above design is adapted from one sent in a box of stash and page kits I received recently from Crop in the Country (as I was unable/unwilling to attend in person this year). I love how the flower embellishments match the colours in my photos. This page will sit side-by-side with a divided page protector in the album.
I didn’t bother with a title for the above page, as it’s clear in the photo where we were. The journaling is tucked behind the photo, as I had quite a lot to say. I really like the simplicity of this page.
The final 12×12 featuring Singapore is of the Commonwealth War Cemetery at Kranji and I’m including the original page for comparison. One thing I’m grateful for in the original album is the amount of journaling I did.
