Simply Put: Sweet Summer 8x8 Album by Jodi

Sweet Summer 8x8 Album
by Jodi Wilton

For this project, I wanted to use the storybook 8x8 album, since I have never really scrapped in this size before. I thought, given the smaller size of the album, it would be perfect for a yearly vacation album, where I can add our favorite photos from the cottage from each year. I also can add some "history" of the cottage from photos that my grandparents had and really be able to create an album that tells a story.

Being that we travel to the cottage every summer, I thought the Fruit Stand Collection would be perfect to highlight some fun summer photos.  I started off with my cover page- a large picture of what the cottage is known for- being close to Bon Echo Rock.  My next double page spread was a favorite picture of each of my kids followed by some favorite swimming photos. The Simply Put Album inserts are perfect for this type of project, and make the pages come together so fast!  For extra embellishments I added some Doodlebug Twine and Doodle-pops.
