Last August we went to Great Adventures for our 11th Anniversary. Above is the scrapbook album I put together from our trip. It was my first time working with the 8 1/2 x 11 size. The paper was a Christmas gift from a co-worker. I used lots of chipboard and cuttlebug and stickles. It was my first time experimenting with painting chipboard. I was pleased with the results.
