A lot of the light poles had ships on the top for decoration.

Gnome Adventures: Lisbon, Portugal

We spent a week in Lisbon, Portugal for my cousin's wedding (more on that later). The gnome and my suitcase safely arrived with me this time. Unlike when we went to Ireland.

This is not the golden gate bridge, did I fool you? It's the 25 de Abril Bridge.

EPIC Tiffzippy
We just got back from a amazing vacation to Lisbon, Portugal for my cousin's wedding (more to come). We stayed at the Epic Sana hotel and they had this notepad in the room. After a week away I am refreshed & ready to think of new EPIC ideas.

Weekend in Palm Springs

Larry, Yogi & I headed over to the Palm Springs area on last Friday afternoon to spend the weekend. We love going over their for the weekend. My parents live over there so it's nice to spend time with them and we don't have to pay for a hotel. We only live about 70 miles away so it's a quick drive over compared to when we lived in Orange County.

Ireland Photo Book

Tiffzippy Ireland Photo Book

I have fallen in love with making photo books on Blurb. I have always scrapbooked our vacation and holiday photos but when we got married I wanted an actual book. I saw a few other bloggers using Blurb and I thought I would give them a try.

Tiffzippy Photo Books

To start I made a book of our honeymoon photos first using Blurb. Once I received it in the mail I was hooked. After that book I made a larger sized book of our wedding photos. From now when we take vacations I am going to make a photo book and scrapbook all the other stuff I collect on the way.

I still love scrapbooking but I really like just having a book of photos to look at and remember. Also the books are easy to leave on our coffee table and guests can look at them when they come over. I tend to store our scrapbooks away. I think its because they are so much larger and a little bulky.

The first big vacation other than our honeymoon we have taken was our trip to Ireland last September. I am bit slow and getting around to make the books but once I sit down and get to work it, it's well worth it. Blurb has software you can download and use. They have prebuilt templates as well but I like to design as I go. They have a variety of sizes you can choose from as well as cover & paper choices. So far I have only used their standard paper and love it. I have gone with the wrapped hard cover (no dust jacket) each time and love it.
