Mexican Adventures mini-book

IMG_5556

So I decided to try my hand at making a mini album/scrapbook of my trip to Mexico and share some of it with you. I like the idea of using an old book and up-cycling it, particularly because this one is called “Race around the World”. I know it has nothing to do with paganism, but I could probably find some link, you know, having to do with Mayan culture and prophecies, or nature, so something… so let’s just go with that… yeah!

I had this package of travel quotes that I’ve been sitting on forever and so I am going a little overboard just trying to use them!

Bonding with the local wildlife on our trip to a Mayan village and the Cenote:

And last, but not least, some cactus graffiti!

And most of these (except for the 1st two, all come from one day of adventures)!

  1. Wow--this is amazing! I liked the cactus graffiti picture in particular.

    Your book reminds me of the pictures I have from my second trip to the Netherlands three years ago that are still sitting on my computer and I haven't done anything with them. I keep telling myself that I'll get around to them one of these days....

  3. Thanks ladies. I know, I was amazed by the cactus graffiti. Who knew such a thing was possible? No one else even seemed to notice it, which further amazed me!

    I've never done a mini-book before but I have to admit, they are simpler to do because there's less playing with all the extras than in larger layouts. I like it! It makes me feel very productive!
