Scrapbooking your vacation.. how long should it take?

I will be the first to admit (and all of my scrappy friends will agree) that I am the world's slowest scrapbooker.

When I go to weekend retreats, people around me are finishing 10, 20, 30 layouts.  If I finish 5 in a weekend -- well I am thrilled and I'm okay with it.  I really love the process of creating a page.

In August of 2013, I went on an INCREDIBLE 10 day trip to London and Scotland with my mom and uncle.  It was an amazing experience.

And here we are in 2016.  I am 18 layouts in and still working on the album (of course, I hopscotch around with my scrapbooking, whatever photo captures my fancy on any particular day is the one I will work on!)

The word "chronological" is NOT in my scrappy vocabulary!  So my answer to "how long should it take?" is "as long as it takes".

You might wonder how I can remember all the little details from my trip - - one trick I used - everyday I mailed a postcard home with details on what we did that day.  Not only do I have ready made journaling, but the postcards with their postmarks and stamps are becoming part of my scrapbook.
So remember, don't ever compare yourself to any other crafter or scrapbooker - - there is no "right way"!

Thanks for stopping by today!
