Happy Sunday Divas!
I hope the first week of 2012 has been exciting, productive and PHOTOGRAPHED...
January is a time for resolutions, changes, and making of lists for most people. I, however have another task I must complete. I need to catch up on my 2011 Scrapbook and get it done. How many of you have boxes of photos ready for scrapping but put it off ? or Are you like me and take tons of pictures at all family and friend events that you get overwhelmed by the growing box? If you are like me, then this post is to help motivate you to pull out your fabulous pictures and put your creativity to work.
Scrapbooking for me is so relaxing and enjoyable.. I relive the moments in my photos and have fun seeing the pictures over and over. I've captured a couple of examples I worked on this week. Your book does not have to be full of elaborate embellishments and bells and whistles.. The true essence of your scrapbook should be a reflection of your memories and personality. The book I'm sharing is a 3 ring 12 x 12 Pioneer Album, I purchased at my local Joanns Fabric and Crafts. (Always look for those 40% coupons). The top loading sheet protectors are so easy to work with. I love adding journaling but I'm usually brief about what I write and make sure it explains the pictures for others to understand. Don't be shy about scrapping just 3 photos for an event, you can fill in the page with colored cardstock, stickers, etc to capture the event.
My pages being shared are from my first visit to The County Fair, I was sick and feeling horrible but faked it as best I could so as not to miss the fun activities.
The Scrapbook can be anything you'd like it to be. Remember as you put your memories to paper be true to your feelings about the pictures and journal something that will trigger those great moments for years to come...
I hope you enjoy your week and Happy Scrapping..
