How to Make a Travel Album: Finishing Touches

This week, I am putting the finishing touches on my France travel album. I have all the photos and stories in place and I have added embellishments. I'm not ready to call the album done though because I keep adding things when I flip through it.

Here are some of the pages I've been working on this week. You can see all the fun we had during our 24 hour stay in Paris!

Below is one of the interactive pages I made using my Fuse Tool by We R Memory Keepers.

This journaling section sets up the story for the next few pictures. Although I did use journaling spots from time to time to add some more details.

Sometimes a photo really doesn't need any journaling.

And sometimes it really does!

The morning after the Adele concert, we went to the Musee D'Orsay. It was absolutely amazing to see Monet and Van Gogh paintings in real life. I would love to go back. I'm so glad that I took pictures of the art so I can remember how it felt to stand there and take it in.

I love embellishments but I don't want to bury the photos and stories under too many. I'm cautiously adding a few at a time because the album is small - only 4x6'- and it has a lot of photos. I may have to save all the pretty supplies for another project. I'm going to give myself another week to add any last finishing touches. I need a deadline or I will pick at it for ages.

Thanks for stopping by today. Come back next week and see my finished album. I can hardly wait to share it all and move on to something new!
