I finally finished my “short” Guadalajara album to take back to the states with me next week (I’ll post some more of those pages soon!). It feels weird not to be trying to scrap every spare moment in an effort to get something together really fast. So I decided to participate in a challenge this week. We finished school on Tuesday, so I’ve had a little more time on my hands and was able to work on this for quite awhile. Hope you like it!
