Hello Maui 2015 | Inspiration
I came down with a stomach bug 3 days before we left which really sucked but having to stay home from work, gave me the time to prepare for my "album on the go". I find that if I want to document our trip, I have to do it while on the trip or else it will never get done (I really speak from experience here. heehee). There's always more important things to do when back in our daily lives. Don't you agree?
I used this time to pick out all my cards that I wanted to use and plan out each section which is basically one day of each trip. I find that this breakdown helps me to plan how many page protectors that I'll need. I didn't pre-pick out all my cards with my previous "albums on the go" - Disneyland & Mexico and Hawaii 2013. That wasted valuable vacation time where I could be doing other things. So if you have a few hours here and there before your trip date, plan out your album then all you'll do on the trip is 1) print your photos at the end of your day to tell your story. 2) paste your photos onto the cards. 3) add journaling. 4) add fun & cute stickers and stamped images.
I brought my Canon Selphy CP910 printer and a full pack of Color Ink Set. It was more than enough paper/ink for the trip. I lugged my Nikon D7000 with 35mm 1.8 lens which was fairly light weight. This camera/lens combination was great for timer shots of us since the lens isn't heavy at all, it was able to sit upright with only a flat surface - no tripod needed :)
Hoping to share more of this album soon.
