Ozark Road Trip part 4 – Scrap book

Had lots of fun creating the album for this trip, which is my first  hand-made scrapbook (as opposed to making a photo book on the computer).   Some of the older ladies at work brought in their scrapbooks to give me examples and inspire me.  My pages tend to be a lot less busy than theirs, and more focused on photos than on old ticket stubs, etc.  I also looked for some examples online and hard a tough time finding them.  I guess not a lot of people share their scrapbooks online, so I thought I’d fill that void and share some of my favorite pages from the trip album.

I decided I liked my captions hand-written better than typed, since it made it look more personal.

I added some famous quotes about the Ozarks.
I thought it was a cute idea to add our trip playlist.

I started painting my own backgrounds on white paper, which is cheaper than buying pre-made ones and way more original.
