This has been a while coming, but I thought I should do it properly! I have mentioned a couple of times, that I have more than one scrap book, the only finished one however, is one I did earlier this year of my holiday in Turkey. I went with my best friend, who has given me permission (I asked) to put the pics of my scrapbook on my blog, to show you all.
I have said before, that I am a fan of busy layouts. I like to use a lot of photos, because I take a lot of photos (and believe me I don’t use all of them) and I use my books as a sort-of photo album, now I store all my pictures on my laptop!
I would like to say, this is quite a big album, at 30 pages, I didn’t take a pic of the first page… it has “Travel” written on it in funky letters… that’s it….
The photos in this album, were taken by both of us, I went for a bright cheery theme for the days but a darker theme for evenings to add to the tone (or something):
Page One and Two: The Airport
I did notice here, that I still haven’t stuck in a photocopy of the stamps in my passport… which I want to… (always something)
Also… I am on the left of the photo’s of two of us (by the way)
Page Three and Four: Coach....
Five and Six: The Hotel
Seven and Eight: Beach!
Nine and Ten: Rainy Day by the Pool
Eleven and Twelve: Out with some people we met!
Thirteen and Fourteen: Days by the Pool

Seventeen and Eighteen: Talk of the Town
Nineteen and Twenty: Around the Town and the Hotel Bar
21 and 22: Check out day trip - part 1
23 and 24: Check out day trip - Part 2
24 and 25: Mediterranean Beach... and getting delayed
26 and 27: A Second Last Day
28 and 28: Leaving Turkey and Getting Home
I did put journaling in this book, unlike the one I have done for days out. I was really happy with the way this came out, I tried out a few things, but tried to keep it fairly simple, as I wanted this to be a big photo album for my holiday that I could look back on. I didn’t want pieces falling out and breaking, so I have used a few embellishments, I just didn’t want to use too many. I also tried to use as much scrap paper as possible (it is scrapbooking after all) I did use trimmed down 12×12 sheets, don’t know what collections I’m afraid, most were left overs from old packs and some I got as a bundle in a haberdashery! (Got to love finding unexpected things when shopping!)
My next task this week, is to prepare a layout for my Beaulieu trip, because it’s been a month since we went and I still haven’t done it! So I’ll carry on the scrapbooking theme tomorrow! (Cross-Stitch enthusiasts: Don’t worry I’ll be stitching again soon!)
