Adventure Book

One of my favorite movies is Pixar's Up! I especially love the scene near the end when Carl is looking through Ellie's old adventure book and finds the new pages she put together with pictures from their wedding day all through their life of growing old together.

I was inspired to also keep a scrapbook for Will and I-- afterall I do have the scraps. I'm pretty sentimental and I tend to keep useless things like ticket stubs and map brochures, but I have never quite found the time to paste them into an actual scrapbook. Recently I got an offer from Shutterfly for a free 20-page photobook and I thought it would be perfect for our recent Hawaii honeymoon photos.

The last two photobooks I deisgned and ordered from shutterfly all were for a very particular purpose: one was a coffee-table styled book with our Taiwan engagement pictures that I created as a gift to our parents, and the second was our photo-guestbook for our wedding so I kept the design fairly clean and simple with plenty of boarders and white space for people to sign and leave well-wishes. This photobook was the first that was more a fun style and "just for us: so I used all of the cute little graphics in the Shutterfly program to create a virtual-scrapbook. Here are a few of my favorite pages:

Happy Friday,
