Aussie Vacation! Picture Heavy

Happy Memorial Day!

First, a thank you to all the men and women who have served our county with great honor to keep us safe and free , a heartfelt thank you. May God bless America!

Now that summer is officially here I am ready for vacation! A couple of years ago we took the trip of a lifetime to visit my daughter in Australia. I have over 2000 pictures! That is a massive scrapbook! I really wanted something to put on my coffee table to share some of the highlights of our trip and the Heart of Texas Big Vacation album fit the need. It is a variety of fun shapes and can hold a ton of pictures. So here are a few highlights from our time in Sydney...

I used the Tim Holtz Custom Metal Knobs... isn't it cool? The letters are from Maya Road, colored with my Copics and then topped with Glossy Accents.

I used a couple of different travel lines throughout the book... Authentique Abroad and Now Boarding by Kaiserkraft.




I really had a great time putting this book together. It will be at The Crafty Scrapper if you would like to see it in person!



  1. The book is so awesome. What a great job you did! And what an undertaking ... 2000 pictures ...narrowing down! Wow!

  2. Gena, this album is WONDERFUL! I especially like the muted tones.....You rocked it!
