This summer I had the opportunity to visit Savannah. I have always wanted to visit Savannah, and it did not disappoint!
We took a trolley tour of downtown, shopped, & ate at none other than the Lady & Son’s! (btw, the title comes from a story… no one in my family has really been a “fan” of fried chicken before.. including myself.. until we had it at the Lady & Sons! … so it became our “joke” that we all love it now after our trip!)
I decided to make a “mini” scrapbook of this trip… I’m starting to rethink how I handle scrap booking vacations. I like the idea of mini scrapbooks for trips. Last year I made a shutterfly book of our trip to Europe and LOVE how it turned out (maybe I’ll post that one…). I think the mini book makes scrapbooking a trip sooooo much easier. There is a definite start and a stop, and you finish with a great sense of accomplishment.
I used some of the techniques I picked up at creative escape… and most if not all of the products are from my monthly Jenni Bowlin scrapbook kit (one of my fav’s!)
For the cover, I used Grunge paper, (it won’t tear, so it’s great for a book cover) I painted it red and then inked it brown. It ended up looking like red leather, in fact when my husband picked it up he wanted to know where I got the leather for the cover. The rest of the products are Jenni Bowlin, with stamps from Close to My Heart…
*** just a note, I’m not endorsing any products here… no one sent me anything for free (although I would be open to that LOL!!) this is just stuff I had in my “stash” that I pulled together to make my book.**
Here are the inside pages of the book. To keep little hands from ripping them, I secured each page with 1/4″ eyelets.
