I'm a project life gal.
Just came back from a family trip.
I have so much photos that I want to put in my project life album.
Any suggestions what I can do?

I try to contain all my events on a 2 page spread so when I have a lot of photos I will make photo collages in Picasa. If there are a lot of photos I may had an insert but I try not to do that too much because I want my whole year in 1 album.

When we went on our cruise I picked one main photo for each day for my PL. I made a mini album for the rest of my photos and memorabilia.

I do an insert on those weeks and condense to my favorites, then do a mini or Sn@p album for the trip.

PL is whatever works for you. Where is it written that you can/should only have 1 photo per day? Add in those extra photos and don't worry about how many pages they take up.

I got back a few weeks ago from Long Beach and Disneyland. It was my daughter's (6) first trip and our first family vacation ever and I wanted to include so much! I narrowed it down a bit... but I still had 200+ photos. After a lot of debate, I decided to not fight it. It ended up being 2 full page spreads per day of our trip. Some photos were eliminated, and that was hard but I still do traditional scrapbooking. Our trip sent from Sunday to Wenesday so for the rest of the week I just did my best to make that a normal spread. Vacation and then 1 side of a page protector was Thursday - Saturday.

We're you gone the whole week? Maybe get one of those 8x10 (or something close to that) divided inserts and then you'll have a spread and a half..

Do you do traditional scrapping as well?

I use as many pages as I want to include any photos that I want. I often use inserts like the Design H (actually I use American Crafts). Now, my regular PL spreads are 2-pages per month (usually with some kind of insert), so it isn't the same as weekly.

It's up to you. One nice thing about this format is that you can always remove the pages and put them in an album just for that purpose. I suppose if I had tons of photos that could make up 20+ pages, it may deserve an album all to itself.

For our week cruise this past February, I did one 4x6 photo collage for each day and one 3x4 journal card each day to capture the highlights. The rest of the pics I put into an Amy Tan mini book.

I use photo collages pretty heavily. Here is an example. Project Life Collages You could do that and/or add an insert or two. My family took a week long Caribbean cruise with 30 of our closest relatives last year and it took up four full spreads in my album. There really are no rules so include as many photos as you want or that make sense to you. Another option is to make a separate vacation album.

Thank you all for the suggestions.

I don't do much 12x12 layout anymore and really into PL (I love it because it really tells the whole story of that week).

Last trip I did a mini album and I didn't want to do one this time. That's why I just want to put everything into my PL album.
