The Albatross Project

So, I mentioned my giant scrapping project last post.

Let me elaborate...

We went on holidays last year to Tuscany and had a fabulous time. There were tears from the eldest child he was so sad to be leaving. I was nearly bawling too. It was that good. So, when I came home and reviewed the 700 pictures I had taken, there was no way practically (or emotionally!) I could reduce this down to the ten or so as I would normally scrap for our annual holiday.

What to do?

I decided to make a whole album to cover the holiday. I managed, with great difficulty to reduce the numbers of pictures I wanted to work with down to 60. Mammoth task! I normally do about 60 layouts for the year! And just to make matters for challenging, I decided to give myself just three weeks to complete it all.

That's the introduction to 'The Albatross Project'! So-called as the campsite we stayed at was called Park Albatross and because it was such a big task I hoped it wouldn't become an albatross around my neck!

I'll explain how I went about undertaking this massive project in my next post.

In the meantime, here are a couple of layouts I finished just before the Tuscan hills took over my scrappy life...

"Are We Having Fun Yet???" - freezing 'fun' watching Leinster play Montpellier.

Ru and her sports day. Probably the last medal she'll win. She maintains the fine family tradition of being useless at sport!

Till next time!
