August was a very heavy photo month with a week in Nantucket. Not only were there lots of family photos, but many photos of the beautiful island. And, of course, the trip was not the only activity I wanted to capture.
Once again, I relied heavily on Tracy Larsen's Simply White photo templates, adding journaling to some of them, and a few stickers and one filler card I made with a Project Life Everyday card and a Heidi Swap clear sticker.
I buy postcards wherever we go, but rarely use them. This time I used one of a map of Nantucket which I loved.
These pages have some of my favorite photos. Ella loves to figure things out, and spent a LONG time learning out to insert and release the buckle on the stroller. The one of Matt with the two girls is in a frame in our living room. I'm rarely a fan of selfies, but the one Nadia took of the five of us on the beach is great of everyone. The filler card at the bottom was made from a purchased notecard added to some patterned paper.
This page documents our trip to the Whaling Museum, the Cisco Brewery, our "date night," our bike rides, and a family photo taken at the Nantucket Hotel before a family dinner.
The last pocket page documents the trip to Providence, Rhode Island on our way home from Nantucket, and the other activities of the month.
Then I added foue pages of photos that I had printed with white borders at a local camera shop. I don't really keep separate photo albums any more, so the Project Life album is where any photos that get printed are kept.
I still have a few pages from early in 2016 to finish embellishing, and September's pages are all planned out. Now to find time to get to them!
