laying it out | roma travel album part 1

Sometimes I wonder what really goes on inside my head. Sometimes I start things on a whim without thinking all too much about what it really involves as far as workload is concerned.

The other day I had a few hours of downtime and instead of just sitting back, enjoying my free time, what do I do? Oh, I start another huge project of course. I got this idea that I could make the album I've been meaning to do with the photos from our trip to Rome in September. As if I could make a whole album, from about two million photos, in two hours!

But high marks for ambition, right?

Now this album is going to take a while. So far I've done twelve pages (six spreads) and I haven't even finished the photos from the first day! But I am so in love with the layouts that I just can't hold off sharing them. This is going to be one great book. Of course, what else is to be expected with photos from Rome?

As you can see, there is no journaling at all. I had to make a decision to exclude it in order to cope with even thinking about finishing this album. That might be a decision I will regret in 25 years, but at the moment I figure it's better to have at least have the album with the photos. I think I will add captions with restaurants and such though, as they aren't as permanent as the famous sights after all.

I will probably share more layouts as I finish them so please have patience with me here!
