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...
