LOAD Day 3 - That Eating Place
During one of the early weeks of The Mother LOAD workshop, one of the assignments was to create four small bags of embellishments - four embellishments per bag. Today's prompt was to grab a bag and create a layout. Here's what I had in my bag number 1.
I pulled two photos that I'd taken at "that eating place" this summer and a couple of kid's menus that I'd saved in my Memorabilia File from a few summers ago and came up with this layout.
The Learn Something New Every Day class prompts are reminding me to look for the lessons I learn each day. Today's lesson is not to forget the "behind the scenes" stories that go with all the fun things we do each year!
Anyone else have a "behind the scenes" story you haven't scrapped? Something that is so routine for every vacation or holiday or event that you haven't thought to include it?
