Long Time MIA!

Wow, can't believe my last post was in November of 2011!!  I took on being yearbook adviser at school starting the 2011-12 school year, and just haven't spent as much time stamping and scrapping as I have in the past (too busy proofreading yearbook pages!).

Last day in Hawaii (currently on Maui) and I've been doing some digital scrapbooking that I thought I'd share.  First up is the cover of my album.  I'm using My Digital Studio to create it.  The image was taken from the Kona by the Sea resort on the Big Island.

Still messing around with the title page, but this is what I have so far:

I've finished three spreads so far.  The first is a page featuring snorkeling on the reef in front of the condo we're renting on Maui.  We did the snorkeling during the first six night stay here.  The girls and I were in the water on four different days, having the waterproof digital camera with us the last three times.  I sure am glad we spent the money several years back on the waterproof camera - it has come in handy!

The next spread is from our trip up Haleakala, the larger of the two volanoes that make up the island of Maui.  First time we've been up there with fog and rain, so there wasn't much to see this time, unfortunately.  This part of our trip started out wet with a storm the night we got here, and it's taken several days to get back to things being sunny again.


I was working on this spread last night and finished it today.  After our visit up at Haleakala, we stopped in at the Maui Golf & Sport Park and played two rounds of mini golf in the wind (it was windy up at head level but not a golf ball level).

I'll have to post the rest of the album once I finish it.  Might also show you the album I did two summers ago when we did a roadtrip to Carlsbad Caverns, Yellowstone, and the Redwoods.  I've also done some stamping in the last two and a half years of my absence from Blogger, so I should round up a few of my favorites to share.  Thanks for stopping by!
