Flashback Friday (sort of) 2008 Oahu Trip (#1)



In 2008, my husband and I went to Oahu, sans kids, with another couple (who are now former friends).

I have been wanting to scrapbook this trip for a while, but never got around to it.  When I seen that Project Life had mini albums, I knew that is what I wanted to use.  But I didn't want to pay full price for the album...fast forward to April of this year...I paid full price for it :/  But it is the perfect album for our 5 day (including travel days) vacation.

The front cover has a space for a small 3x4 picture (or card), but I haven't found the right one yet.  This is the first page of the album.



Top from left to right:

I used a folding card from the Project Life Kiwi (Jo-Ann's exclusive), tab made with a McGill File Tab Punch, a couple of roller stamps--2000's date stamp and the Dear Lizzy roller stamp--and Amy Tangerine washi tape.

The photo was taken using my Nikon D50.

Bottom from left to right:

I used a card from the Project Life Themed Card-Planner (Michaels exclusive) with a cute "Polaroid" print from Typo--Message in a Box (I can't find the set I have, but this one is similar), and pink loopy Washi tape.

The Project Life card is from the Amy Tangerine Plus One kit, the "TO" is from Kelly Purkey Alphabet Stickers (I actually used white but colored them green with the Amy Tangerine markers) and I used an older set of Black Glittery Thickers.

The corner card can actually be pulled out to see the hidden journaling.  I used my typewriter--whoo hoo!  It is just a note saying in 2008 we went on vacation with our friends but later that year, we no longer were friends.  "This album was created & journaled in 2014.  I have done my best to capture the moments as they occurred in 2008."



I went back and forth about putting that into the album and I probably didn't need to note that, but I felt it was kind of part of the story, but I didn't want to announce it on the front of the album...so if you know there is hidden journaling, then you can pull it out and read it :)  Plus I am not sure if we were still friends today if my album might be different--know what I mean?

Thanks for looking :)
