Last summer, we took a beautiful week long vacation on the Gulf Coast of Florida. This is one of my favorite summer destinations, so rich in coastal beauty and luxurious architecture. I love the various beaches along the scenic highway and enjoy photographing their splendor.

When we arrived home from our trip, I knew I wanted to document the vacation in a separate mini album with the focus being on the photos. This would be my first complete mini album experience. I chose this Greige WRMK 4x4 album because of it's neutral color, which I simply adore. I then ordered a set of 25 Square Prints from Artifact Uprising. When it comes to minimalism and quality, no one beats Artifact Uprising in my opinion. I am so in love with the perfection of these prints.
I used a standard hole punch and inserted my photos into the album. I wanted to label the different areas we visited, so I journaled about each beach using this template from Paislee Press and printed the journaling on clear vellum. Next, I cut 5x5 squares from 12x12 scrapbook paper I had from a Felicity Jane kit. I punched holes in each of the double sided papers and inserted them between random photos. Lastly, I included a few digital design elements from One Little Bird's Cabana collection and completed the album. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out!
Since our trip also included some other "everyday" photos of things like our food, our vacation rental and kayaking on the ocean, I also ordered this 5.5x5.5 Square Soft Cover album to document those memories. I'll be sharing a look at that photo book soon. I keep both the mini album and soft cover book stored on a shelf, tucked away, neatly together. As a result of this project turning out so well, I definitely plan to use this method again for future trips.
