Travel Mini Album

Summer vacation means lots of time to travel and go exploring. I created this mini album with ideas for helping preserve your vacation this summer.

I love saving little souvenirs like hotel keys, tickets, and maps so in my album I made sure to include lots of little envelopes for your memorabilia. Wherever your destination is, I hope you enjoy the trip and getting those memories scrapbooked!
