2010 Banff Road Trip Layouts

As I was evaluating my 2010 albums, I was thrilled to see that I've told several stories from our Banff Road Trip (including the ones about our walk into Banff and Robbie's problem with the broiler and the drive through Glacier National Park). However, I still had several pieces of memorabilia and photos I wanted to include in my album.

First, I had the journal pages from our trip. I had used a plain journal to record our adventures each day and had simply torn those pages out of the journal when we returned home and put them in my memorabilia box. I decided to staple the pages together and slip them into a page protector. I added some washi tape and a photo to the first page and put a piece of cardstock with washi tape borders inside the pocket behind the journal pages.
The pages can easily be slipped out of the pocket and thumbed through to see all the notes from our trip.
I added pieces of memorabilia and stickers to the back of the piece of cardstock, so when the page is turned it looks like this.
With all these notes and the previously scrapped stories in my album, I had FUN scrapping the few remaining photos without any pressure to tell a story on every page.

I have a few more pages from this trip that I'll be sharing soon!


  1. That's a great idea, Melissa. I have handwritten notes from our last holiday, and it would make more sense to pop them into a pretty envelope or under a flap on a page and say"done!".

  2. Banff and Glacier are on our bucket list. Our photos of the Badlands look so different. The year we were there, they'd had lots of rain, so everything was green. I like the idea of including your journal pages on the layout.

  3. What a great idea. I love the Crazy Horse layout :)

  4. As always, I love the inclusion of the memorabilia. Perfect.


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
