Honeymoon Album {Part 1}

Happy Mardi Gras!

I am super late posting today. I'm super late doing everything this week. But that is probably because we are on a school vacation, and I am just loving not being on a schedule this week.

Even though I still seem to be waking up at 6 every morning.

But anyway, today I unpacked my mini albums. I'm not sure where I am going to keep my big albums, but my minis will be in a bucket in the living room.

And when I did that, I realized I never shared my honeymoon album!

I really loved the idea of using a Project Life mini album for our honeymoon album, specifically this kiwi one. But, I couldn't find a Project Life kit that worked with what I wanted for the album. And you guys know how much I love Project Life, but there wasn't anything beachy and tropical enough.

But the Bella Blvd Sand and Surf line was perfect! I scooped up lots of this paper + stickers + embellishments and got to work with my paper cutter and corner rounder.

Fortunately, I was able to make all of the cards over the summer, while school was on break.

So when I got home from the honeymoon, all I had to do was add the pictures + journaling + Bella Blvd cards and it was good to go!

It ended up just taking one evening to put it all together!

I just did one spread for Sunday night, since we got to the resort late. But they had champagne and flowers waiting for us in our room, and we were able to order dinner and relax after a super super long day of traveling (that included a 6 hour layover!)

Monday morning was our first real day of our honeymoon. I had so much fun taking pictures of everything on the resort. I couldn't believe how gorgeous everything was, and I had so missed the beach after my first summer not living close by the water. It was so wonderful to be able to walk to the beach again! We spent half our day at the pool, and half on the beach. And I'm sure AJ is going to love that I shared this picture ;)

Tuesday was more of the same, beach + pool. We got my favorite pool seats today, under the roof, but right next to the pool, with a table in the water, perfect for pizza eating! And there was a chocolate party at the resort that night. Before dinner, we played some pool, and after, we filled up on lots of chocolates. My favorite was the Nutella filled crepes...which didn't last long enough on the plate to get a picture!

Looking at these pictures makes me wish I was in the Bahamas again! It is freezing here, and I couldn't have sworn they told me the south was warm!

I'm off to go figure out how to start the fireplace, and start dinner! What are you up to today?
