Robbie's Florida Trip Photo Album Scrapbook

Recently found two very small photo albums with pictures from Robbie's 1984 trip to Florida to visit Grandma & Grandpa Aubele. It was the year after Robbie graduated from high school, and he flew down to visit them for a week. Grandma had labeled most of the photos on the back and I had Robbie tell me about the trip. I copied Grandma's notes on the pages with the photos and included Robbie's memories on separate 4x6 inserts to complete a Photo Album Scrapbook in this nice leather-like photo album that Robbie received as a college graduation gift a few years ago. I didn't really do a lot of scrappy stuff, just typed a few pages and added some vacation packing-tape-like sticker borders as embellishment, however I enjoyed making this album as a gift for Robbie. We both enjoyed going through all these photos and reading Grandma's notes.




  1. love this book, love the colors they really compliment the tone of the photos. What a great book to look back on. Well done.

  2. Love this idea... I'm going to make one of the trip to California my friend and I took in 1975 when we were all of 19yrs old. The photos are faded and not very good - but thats okay. Mostly, I want to record the memories of that trip before they fade as well. Thanks for the inspiration Melissa... I was thinking I should do something more current for this weeks PAS challenge - but these are the photos that speak to me right now so that's what I'll do... after all FPF is about inspiration so I'm gonna go for it.


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