Our Summer Vacation!

Do remember going through your mom's old photo albums?  The old scrapbook type on black paper... with white writing?  Well today I am recreating one of the old books.  Here are the pages of my album.  I will share the cover in a later post! 

The cover of my inspiration album!
A vintage scrapbook I found in a box I bought at auction a few years back.


Here are the pages I created using Altered Pages collage sheets of old photos and postcards.

Enjoy a trip to Yellowstone.
